From #1 New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth comes a companion volume to the worldwide bestselling divergent series, told from the per-spective of the immensely popular character Tobias. The four pieces included here—The Transfer, The Initiate, The Son, and The Traitor—plus three additional exclusive scenes, give readers an electrifying glimpse into the history and heart of Tobias, and set the stage for the epic saga of the Divergent trilogy.

A must read for Divergent fans!

FOUR: A Divergent Collection is a collection of novellas from Four's point of view. If you already didn't love Four, you now. If you already did, you'll love him even more. I enjoyed getting to understand Four more. With this collection of novellas, Veronica Roth gives his side of the story. Fans will see what Four's motivation was for changing Fractions, why he wanted to be a trainer, the corruption between fractions, and his first impression of Tris. Oh yeah, it's a great read.

I loved reading about Tris and Four's first meeting and some of their time together, through Four's eyes. That was fabulous. It was easy to like Four in Divergent, and at the same time think he was a jerk at first, but know we get to see why. Often times I thought Tris was tougher than Four, but this book made me realize Four has a different kind of strength than Tris. They definitely complimented each other well in the series.

This was a fast paced read, enjoyable read that I read in one sitting. I liked stepping back into the series. Roth does a great job at staying true to the series, and to both Four and Tris's voices. There are times I feel that novellas lose the true voice of the series, and lose the feeling that the book series gives off, and luckily that was not the case at all with this book.

FOUR is a great addition to the Divergent series. This is a book I'd highly recommend DIVERGENT fans pick up, though I wouldn't recommend reading it until you've read the entire series.

UNLEASED by Sophie Jordan, Cover Reveal

Happy Friday! I am so thrilled to be apart of today's team of bloggers/book reviewers whom are helping Sophie Jordan reveal the cover for her sequel to Uninvited, UNLEASHED, which will be out in early 2015. 


I seriously love that Harper kept with the same theme, and again features DNA her hair. If you've read Uninvited, you'll know how crucial DNA is to the storyline (read my review here). I also like who they have on the cover. Normally I'm not a big fan of seeing people on the cover of books. 

About The Book

What if the worst thing you ever did was unforgivable?

Davy’s world fell apart after she tested positive for Homicidal Tendency Syndrome. She was expelled from her school, dumped by her boyfriend, abandoned by friends, and shipped off to a camp that turns HTS carriers into soldiers. Davy may have escaped, but the damage has already been done. The unthinkable has happened. Now, even worse than having everyone else see her as a monster is the knowledge that they may have been right about her all along. Because Davy has killed.

On the run from government agents, Davy is rescued by Caden, the charismatic leader of an underground group of rebels. Despite Caden’s assurances that the Resistance is made up of carriers like her, Davy isn’t sure she can trust them. Then again, she doesn’t even know if she can trust herself . . . or her growing feelings for Caden. But if she doesn’t belong with Caden and his followers, is there anywhere she can call home?

UNLEASHED mini-teaser:

I thought being labeled a killer and losing everything—my future, family, boyfriend, friends—was the worst thing that could ever happen to me. It’s not. Finding out they were right. Finding out that’s exactly what I am?

That’s worse.

When Davy Hamilton's tests come back positive for Homicidal Tendency Syndrome (HTS)-aka the kill gene-she loses everything. Her boyfriend ditches her, her parents are scared of her, and she can forget about her bright future at Juilliard. Davy doesn't feel any different, but genes don't lie. One day she will kill someone.

Only Sean, a fellow HTS carrier, can relate to her new life. Davy wants to trust him; maybe he's not as dangerous as he seems. Or maybe Davy is just as deadly.
