Veronica Roth breaks down FOUR: A DIVERGENT COLLECTION!


Veronica Roth has shared more information on Four: A Divergent Collection on her Tumblr.

Four: A Divergent Collection Info!
Now that Four: A Divergent Collection is FINISHED FINISHED FINISHED, I am here to give you the rundown of what’s actually included in the pbook, because it’s just a little over 60 days until it comes out!

First, there are the four stories you expect: The Transfer, The Initiate, The Son, and The Traitor. Here is the official summary:

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.

Then, there are a few things you might not expect. Three “deleted” scenes from THE TRAITOR—scenes that I wrote while drafting the stories but had to cut for length (or because they no longer worked for the timeline). The titles are memorable lines that all happen to end with the same word. They are also all “first moments”. You know, like…

“First jumper—Tris!” – The first time he ever lays eyes on her.

“Careful, Tris.” – And the first time Tris challenges him. (But certainly not the last!)

“You look good, Tris.” – And the first time he lets his guard down.
So. There you have it—everything that will be in the short story collection, released in hardcover on July 8th, 2014, in the US! I’m excited for you guys to read!
Other info:

*The stories will also be available as separate short e-books in July.

**I’m not sure when/if the book will be released in which countries. I’ll put that information on my “foreign editions” page as it becomes available.

You can pick up Four: A Divergent Collection on July 8th. Pre-order it here.

Cover for FOUR: A Divergent Collection Revealed by @EW

Yesterday the tagline for Four: A Divergent Collection was revealed. Today the covers for the FOUR collection has been revealed by Entertainment Weekly.


EW not only revealed the cover for FOUR, but they also debuted the covers for The Initiates, The Son and The Traitor.

The first three pieces in this volume—“The Transfer,” “The Initiate,” and “The Son”—follow Tobias’s transfer from Abnegation to Dauntless, his Dauntless initiation, and the first clues that a foul plan is brewing in the leadership of two factions. The fourth story, “The Traitor,” runs parallel with the events of Divergent, giving readers a glimpse into the decisions of loyalty—and love—that Tobias makes in the weeks after he meets Tris Prior. So without further ado, check out the brand-new covers!

The Initiate:


The Son:


The Traitor:


FOUR contains four pre-DIVERGENT stories told from Tobias’s point of view. The first story, “The Transfer,” is already on sale as an e-short story.

You can pre-order FOUR: A Divergent Collection from Barnes and Noble, Books a Million or Amazon. The book hits stores on July 8th.
