Spotted! Cover of Insurgent by Veronica Roth

7:00 PM

By now you've probably seen the cover for Insurgent, the second novel in the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth, when it was finally revealed online yesterday on EW's Shelf Life along with a Q&A (no spoilers!). I was just waiting for a larger image of the cover to appear before posting about it!

Earlier today, Veronica Roth also posted the cover on her blog with her thoughts on it and some more questions answered!

Release Date: May 2012
Publisher: HarperCollins / Katherine Tegen Books

Summary (from Goodreads): 
One choice can transform you—or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable—and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.
I am completely in love with the cover for Insurgent and I really like how it complements so well with the one for Divergent! It looks like we'll be seeing more of the Amity faction since the tree is their symbol... and all the colours they've used for the cover blend together so well.  

Divergent is one of my favourite books of the year (you can read my gushing review) and I'm hoping Insurgent will be just as amazing!

  1. This cover looks beautiful. I love that tree.
    I've been hearing a lot about Divergent and I think I'm going to make it the one dystopian I read this year. :) I hope I like it enough to get to Insurgent

  2. I haven't read Divergent yet but when I first saw the cover of Insurgent I thought that the tree might be signigicant so I guess I was on the right track.

  3. I cannot WAIT to read this!!! Sooooo long to wait!!!! I am going to lunge at it when it actually releases!! so keen!

  4. I'm liking the continuity in the covers as well! And excited that we'll be seeing more of Amity, because we didn't get much of them in book 1 and I really wanted to know more about their faction. Awesome!
