DIVERGENT Author Veronica Roth Announces Details Of Next Books

Veronica Roth dishes on character and world featured in upcoming books!

Back in March, Divergent trilogy author Veronica Roth announced a new duology coming in 2017. Up until now, that’s pretty much all we’ve gotten out of her. Earlier today, Veronica finally took to the web to spill some more details!

In a new tumblr post, Roth is revealing new details about the series, including the character names and why her publisher is comparing the world to Star Wars:

So. My new book is a sci-fi fantasy story set in a time of extreme political unrest (hence the “Star Wars” comparisons you might have heard!). In it a boy named Akos, along with his brother, is kidnapped and brought to an enemy nation. When the dictator of that place threatens his brother’s life, Akos has no choice but to work with a girl named Cyra (the dictator’s sister), to save him. But Cyra’s trust—and her kindness!—are difficult to earn…to put it mildly. And the intense friendship Akos and Cyra form puts them in more danger than they could ever have imagined.

Roth promises more details “closer to 2017”, so it looks like we’ll have to hold tight to these niblets of story for quite a while!
