Harper Collins has just reported that we will be getting more Divergent! FOUR new novellas in e-book format will be released from Four’s point of view; the first of these will be called ‘The Transfer’! You can purchase the first one this September the 24th!
More Four! Fans of the Divergent series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth will be thrilled by “The Transfer,” the first of four new short stories told from Four’s perspective. Each brief story explores the world of the Divergent series through the eyes of the mysterious but charismatic Tobias Eaton, revealing previously unknown facets of his personality, backstory, and relationships.
Thank you Veronica for writing these Four new stories! Definitely something to look forward to before Allegiant!
Update: We now have the titles and possible release dates for the rest of the Novellas via Amazon France:
The Transfer – September 24th, 2013
The Initiate – December 17th, 2013
The Son – January 21th, 2014
The Traitor – February 11th, 2014
We’re not sure if the dates will match completely since this is from Amazon France, but we can hope they’re the same. Thanks to DivergentFans.com for the heads up!
Update: Here are Veronica’s thoughts on the new story from her tumblr page:
I HAVE BEEN WAITING TO TELL YOU GUYS THIS FOR MONTHS.
Short version: there are going to be Divergent e-shorts!
Four of them!
And they will be about…drumroll, please…
(See what I did there?)
And the first one will be out on September 24th!
Long version: when my publisher approached me hoping that I would be able to write some extra Divergent content for them, I considered a few options for what I might write about, or whose perspective I might choose. Over time it became clear to me that the character I was most interested in exploring further was Four. Two reasons: first, I know his perspective is the one a lot of you are interested in reading (I get asked if I’m going to write anything else from his perspective all the time!), and hey, you’re my readers and I like to write things you want to read; second, I was excited by the idea of expanding my own understanding of him, the way I did when I rewrote the knife-throwing scene from his perspective for the Free Four e-short.
For me, Four has never just been Tris’s love interest or a way for sexual tension to enter the story. He has always been a whole person with a history that affects him (and Tris) in significant ways, and a co-mover of the plot along with Tris. These stories are helping me to delve into his character in a way I never have before, and to build up parts of the world that Tris never experienced due to her limited perspective. Interestingly enough, they also affected the content of Allegiant, giving me more to draw from—awesome, right?
These stories will be longer than Free Four (Four’s retelling of the knife-throwing scene, which was only thirteen pages), and the first one will be out on September 24th. You can learn more official info here, too. And of course, I’ll keep you informed of the other stories as information becomes available, too.
Looks like she’s just as excited as we are!!! Begin the countdown… 99 more days!
