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.
[ Summary from GoodReads ]

After reading Four: A Divergent Collection I once again became a Veronica Roth fan. I loved the Divergent Series but when it ended so sadly I became upset at the last book. Yet this book made me want to re-read the series...well sort of, maybe just the first book.

Delving deeper into the book Tobias Eaton/ Four made me fall in love with him more. This book made me tear up, smile, and cringe at all the right parts. In the first part of the book I wanted to protect Four from the dangers that were after him. In the second part I was rooting for Four. In the third part I felt his anger and fear for his faction, and in the last section I awed at the romance that was forming between Four and Tris.

I loved seeing the friendship being formed between Shauna, Four, and Zeke. Along with Four's awkwardness towards girls...that was too funny to read. (You will have to read it to see what I mean).

All the characters seemed so real. Each emotion affecting me in a different way. Even Eric created a deep emotion inside me...dislike. No wonder I didn't like him in Divergent. He is just as much of a jerk in Four as he is in the Divergent Series.

When I closed this book, I let out a sigh because the series had finally come to an end. Four: A Divergent Collection delves deeper into the problems that Divergent had. And even gives answers to why the characters act like they do.

Although one wish I had for the book was for it to go deeper into the emotional part of Tris and Four's love, showing more love scenes from Divergent.

Read On!
