Veronica Roth says ‘Divergent Trilogy’ book three will be released next fall
The third book in Veronica Roth’s best-selling Divergent Trilogy, which is as-yet-untitled but often jokingly referred to as “Detergent,” will be released next fall, Roth has announced.
Books one and two in the series – Divergent Movie and Insurgent – were released in May, 2011 and May, 2012 respectively, but Roth needs a bit more time to pump out the series ender.
She explained on her blog today, “I know that’s over a year away, and that seems like forever. The reason it’s so distant is pretty simple: I need more time to write and edit and polish it, so that when you get it, it’s the best book 3 I could possibly make it. The last thing I want is to feel like the last book in the trilogy needed just a little more time, and I’m sure you feel the same way, even if internally you are saying ‘OMG WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO US, CRUEL AUTHOR?!’”
Both Divergent and Insurgent debuted on the New York Times’ Bestseller List and received overwhelmingly positive reviews.
