I really enjoyed this opportunity to have a glance at the Divergent
world once again, especially in anticipation of the final full novel release, Allegiant, which is hitting the shelves this October. The Transfer
is the first of the four short stories, set in the Divergent
universe and told from Four’s perspective. As Divergent
fans know, Four is the love interest of the heroine in the books and have become not only a significant character but also quite the fan favorite.
In the previously published novella, Free Four
, readers got to experience one of the scenes from the first book from Four’s perspective. Having instantaneously devoured that first short glimpse, we all were craving more, and now Veronica has delivered. This particular novella follows Four through his Choosing Ceremony
and really gives us readers a new look at his relationship with his estranged father – Marcus Eaton, which I’m sure will further help set the stage for the final showdown in Allegiant
[…] this is not an escape, it’s just a different kind of torture and it’s too late to escape it. My only hope, then, is to survive it. The Transfer: A Divergent Story
“Welcome to Dauntless!”
(Kindle Locations 399-400).
As always, Veronica’s writing and ability to tell the story were superb, and I gulped up this short novella in no time. I’m eager to learn what’s next, but considering the price point for such a short story I might wait until the release of the Four: The Divergent Story
collection, rather than gathering these novellas one by one. Other than that, I highly recommend The Transfer
to all Divergent
series fans, and if you are not one yet, I strongly encourage you to give this awesome dystopian trilogy a chance.
