Reviews

Praise for DIVERGENT:

'A taut and shiveringly exciting read! Tris is exactly the sort of unflinching and fierce heroine I love. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough.'Melissa Marr, bestselling author of Wicked Lovely

'DIVERGENT is a captivating, fascinating book that kept me in constant suspense and was never short on surprises. It will be a long time before I quit thinking about this haunting vision of the future.' James Dashner, author of 'The Maze Runner

'Well-written and brilliantly executed, DIVERGENT is a heart-pounding debut that cannot be missed. Tris stands out in her action-packed, thrilling, and emotionally honest journey to determine who she wants to be in a society that demands she conform. It's dystopian fiction at its best!' Kiersten White, New York Times bestselling author of PARANORMALCY

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
