The society in which Beatrice Prior belongs is divided into five factions namely- Abnegation, Erudite, Candor, Amity and Dauntless. Growing up in Abnegation was not an easy task, always keeping others above you, showing acts of selflessness; this was not what she wanted to continue doing after initiation test. Her test results became a deadly secret, a secret she was supposed to carry to her deathbed. Her choice in initiation was something nobody ever expected.
With new faction came a new beginning. With the responsibility of “Faction before Blood”, she has to face new challenges, prevent her little secret from coming out, figure out the story behind the man that is a threat as well as the one who is protecting her from something. Would she be able to survive the new faction, save her life and also of her loved one?
This novel is one of the best I’ve ever read. With so many plot twists and a massive storyline, Veronica Roth created a masterpiece. Once I started reading, I didn’t want to put the book down. It is one of the best summer or fall reads recommended.
The protagonists of this novel were serious characters, so no humor was expected from them, but all the other characters kept us entertained.
Also, to know the meaning behind the name “Four” was very satisfying for me. Highly recommended for those who seek action with mystery.
