At the Other End:
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.

Sum Up:
A must read book for all Divergent fans. Four is Four-some, and majorly swoon-worthy. Those three bonus scenes will leave you craving for more Four.

The Transfer
Behind the 30 Pages
From the very first line, I was captivated by Four. A tall, scrawny Abnegation boy, at the start, who, by the end of this story, already becomes stronger and more sure of himself. He's become Four. Even though this is supposed to be before Divergent, it really doesn't matter that we don't get a whole lot on their new world, like Divergent does. It's on Tobias and how he becomes Four, rather than in depth details of this world. A brilliant start to Four's story, that leaves you craving for more.

The Initiate
Behind the 30 Pages
Another fantastic story. I liked this one better than the first, so full of action and we get to see the first glimpses of Four discovering he is Divergent. I'm surprised that they didn't really name it, and didn't know what it was. I figured it would have been a tale from a few years before, especially with everything we hear about in Divergent about the Divergent, not starting at this time. Anyway, it's still a great story, and it was great seeing all these traditions before all the new ones from the main books.

Wow, I wasn't expecting that. Just, yeah. Another great Four story. We get to see why Four got into training teaching and get a hint of how everything that happens in the main books start. Now I'm curious about what Four is going to do next, especially because of the title of the next story, The Traitor.......

Even though it skipped a while bunch of scenes and fast forwarded a few years without warning, it was still another great Four story. I absolutely loved seeing Tris in this one, and getting to see his side of everything was something I've been looking forward to. I liked all the other aspects as well of the story, his conflicting emotions and how he stood up, even a tiny bit, to his father, and showed the courage to actually go to him, no matter how logical it was. Other than the random fast forwards, I loved this from beginning to end. Sad that this is the last one though!

I will leave you all with this... enjoy.
