It’s looks like we’re going to have to wait a little longer to get more Four. The release of the remaining novellas told from Four’s perspective has been delayed until July; however there’s going to be even more content when they are finally released–all together in a hardcover book. See below for the announcement from Divergent official.
Exciting news, Initiates: FOUR: A DIVERGENT COLLECTION – a new, full-length, hardcover volume from Veronica Roth – is coming out in July 2014 to complete the Divergent series!
What does this mean, exactly? Well, it means we have to wait a little longer for more from Four, but it’s going to be worth the wait. The new hardcover, told from Four’s perspective, features a collection of much longer stories plus additional original content from Veronica. And if you already pre-ordered the e-novellas, don’t fret! They’ll still be coming your way in July 2014 too. If you have any questions for us, our ask box is always open.
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.
