The cover of the Divergent Movie companion book is finally here!
Take a look:
“The #1 New York Times bestselling novel Divergent is soon to be a major motion picture in theaters March 2014! Illustrated with more than 100 photographs—many never before seen—this eye-catching volume takes you inside the film version of Divergent where you’ll discover the factions, meet the initiates, and enter the thrilling dystopian world.”
It looks pretty cool to me! What with all the tattoos peeking out from their Dauntless clothing and all.
Inside Divergent: The Initiates World will be on sale 2-11-14 but you can pre-order here!
The final book in the DIVERGENT trilogy, ALLEGIANT, was voted the Best Young Adult Fantasy of 2013 by Goodreads readers!
Almost two million Goodreads users voted. ALLEGIANT faced competition from the likes of THE INFERNAL DEVICES, the LEGEND trilogy, the DELIRIUM trilogy, and BLOODLINES, but beat out its closest competitor by 1,430 votes!
Congratulations to Veronica Roth and the rest of the team behind ALLEGIANT!
Veronica Roth took to tumblr to discuss in detail the ending of Allegiant and the events throughout the trilogy that ultimately lead up to that ending. While she respects fans opinions, Roth explains why she chose the end the series the way she did and says she wouldn’t change a thing.
5. Roth considered writing parts of Allegiant from Caleb’s and Natalie’s point of view.
At the 2013 National Book Festival, you stated that you almost wrote the book from Caleb’s and someone else’s perspective. Can you tell us who that person was?
VR: I tried out Caleb, I tried out Tobias (obviously that one worked), and I tried out journal entries retrospective from Natalie’s point of view to intersperse with the forward narrative. That couldn’t sustain over the entire book, and it didn’t address the story from the angles that I wanted to address it from, so I had to get rid of that one too.
Was it weird writing from Tobias’ point of view or did you love switching voices?
VR: I thought it was fun because Tris’ voice is very stereotypically masculine, very straightforward, very direct, kind of repetitive. Tobias’ is a little more poetic, a little more descriptive, and he generally shares more. Tris is always withholding, but Tobias shares everything, so it was interesting to see those dynamics and how they turned over my expectations of those people. It was fun, but it was hard.
Page to Premiere was stealthy enough to take the new photo of the Allegiant cover and pluck off the synopsis for the third book!
BE WARNED! This contains spoilers for Divergent and Insurgent!
The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered—fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.
But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and of herself—while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.
Told from a riveting dual perspective, Allegiant, by #1 New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth, brings the Divergent series to a powerful conclusion while revealing the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of readers in Divergent and Insurgent.
In addition to taking part in the Divergent movie panel at Comic-Con, Veronica Roth will be taking part in the “When Grrls Fall in Love” panel, which focuses on “the delicate balance between killing and kissing”.
When Grrls Fall in Love, Saturday, 7/20/13, 11:00a.m. – 12:00p.m., Room: 23ABC
From The Hunger Games’ Katniss to Divergent’s Tris, no one knows how to give a solid ass-kicking like a young adult novel heroine. But when these young ladies aren’t saving the world, overthrowing powerful regimes, or slaying everything from zombies to dragons, they still find time for romance. Cassandra Clare (The Mortal Instruments), Ally Condie (Matched), Veronica Roth (Divergent), Holly Black (The Coldest Girl in Coldtown), Marissa Meyer (Scarlet), Lissa Price (Starters), and Veronica Wolff (The Watchers) discuss the delicate balance between killing and kissing, and what it takes to properly woo a YA heroine.
We don’t yet know if Veronica will be making any additional appearances outside of these two panels, but we’ll keep you updated!
