Monday Book List #3

Insurgent by Veronica Roth

One choice can transform you- or it can destroy you. Tris Prior’s initiation day should have been marked by celebration; instead it ended with unspeakable horrors. Now unrest surges in the factions around her as conflict between their ideologies grows.

In times of war sides must be chosen and secrets will emerge. Tris has already paid a terrible price for survival and is wracked by haunting guilt. But radical new discoveries and shifting relationships mean that she must fully embrace her Divergence- even though she stands to lose everything. 

Thrown To The Blue by KJ Chapman

Foretellings have no place for goodness, only greatness. Princess Ezrahli is far from good, but she is a great woman in a conventional kingdom followed by whispers and scorn. 

Princess Ezrahli is far from good, but she is a great woman in a conventional kingdom followed by whispers and scorn. However, across the waters is un-convention, fable and magic. Her existence has been foretold in the battle against dark magic, and destiny shall weave itself into her life because darkness cannot be fought with goodness, only greatness. 

Smuggling and sorcery leads to adventure, and adventure leads to destiny. Reed is a prince of the streets, but what he lacks in title, he makes up for in skill; a skill that sets him on a path already written in fate. Can he be more than what is expected? Can he enable greatness in another and survive the process? 

Vengence is a motivator, but it can never be your friend. In the end, it will only ask for sacrifice, and only the great will pay the fare.
