Veronica Roth's INSURGENT Sequel!!

So, author of the debut novel Divergent, Veronica Roth has released the title for her sequel and its called Insurgent and it sounds awesome!

Really glad she is going with the GENT ending of the titles to give the books a consistent feel as being sequels!!

Now I read Divergent a while back and have yet to write my review for it, but I will within the next week, after I finished Blood Magic by Tessa Gratton!

I can not wait for the sequel - Divergent was . . .good!!!!

Here Is Roth's Post!!:

" I've been sitting on this one for a long time. Months ago I proposed a book two title idea to the people over at the HC, and they liked it, but I've found (and they've found, I'm sure) that it's good to ruminate over things for awhile before you make a decision.

I am happy to say that this particular idea held up as the months went on. So, without further adieu, I shall post it.

AND THE TITLE OF THE DIVERGENT SEQUEL IS...




INSURGENT!

This post really wouldn't be complete without a dictionary definition, so here it is:

INSURGENT. Origin:
1755–65; < Latin insurgent- (stem of insurgēns ) present participle of insurgere: to get up, ascend, rebel.

1. a person who rises in forcible opposition to lawful authority, especially a person who engages in armed resistance to a government or to the execution of its laws; rebel.
2. a member of a section of a political party that revolts against the methods or policies of the party.
3. one that acts contrary to the established leadership (as of a political party, union, or corporation) or its decisions and policies
4. (international law) a person or group that rises in revolt against an established government or authority but whose conduct does not amount to belligerency

Not all of those definitions are equally applicable to the book-- some are more spot-on than others. But I won't tell you which ones yet.

Now all I have to do is finish! Back to the writing cave!"
 
Grool, huh?
 
Makes you wonder, what the third book is going to be called . . . .!
