Two years before Beatrice Prior made her choice, the sixteen-year-old son of Abnegation’s faction leader did the same. Tobias’s transfer to Dauntless is a chance to begin again. Here, he will not be called the name his parents gave him. Here, he will not let fear turn him into a cowering child.
Newly christened “Four,” he discovers during initiation that he will succeed in Dauntless. Initiation is only the beginning, though; Four must claim his place in the Dauntless hierarchy. His decisions will affect future initiates as well as uncover secrets that could threaten his own future—and the future of the entire faction system.
Two years later, Four is poised to take action, but the course is still unclear. The first new initiate who jumps into the net might change all that. With her, the way to righting their world might become clear. With her, it might become possible to be Tobias once again.
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth comes a companion volume to the worldwide bestselling DIVERGENT series, told from the per-spective of the immensely popular character Tobias. The four pieces included here—THE TRANSFER, THE INITIATE, THE SON, and THE TRAITOR—plus three additional exclusive scenes, give readers an electrifying glimpse into the history and heart of Tobias, and set the stage for the epic saga of the DIVERGENT trilogy.
Hello All! I know its been a while since I posted anything, but I promise you I haven’t abandoned you! I’ve just been extremely busy. But I do have some great reviews for you! Today I’m reviewing the Four stories that belong to the Divergent series.
So I went to a Veronica Roth signing, and in order to get in, I had to purchase this book, which I was fine with. These stories are available as stand alone novellas, or you can purchase them in a single hardbound book like I did. These stories are told from Four’s perspective, mostly times when he was away from Tris. Well, in fact, two of them are told before Divergent even takes place, like his own choosing ceremony and initiation training.
Really, there isn’t much to say here except that these stories were a nice insight into Four’s perspective. It was cool to see how Four was acting and thinking when he wasn’t around Tris. I have to say that this redeemed my view on Four. I wasn’t his biggest fan in Allegiant.
There are also some scenes in the back of this book that are from Divergent that are instead told from Four’s perspective. So it was a nice flip on the situation.
If you’re a big fan of the Divergent series, this book is a nice little insight back into that world. It isn’t necessary to read this book in order to complete the Divergent series.
