Technical Issues

I’m really sorry, but my laptop has broken, and as I am at Comic Con for the weekend so I don’t have access to another computer. I am home tomorrow, so I will be able to use my parents to make my post. I hope you will all forgive me, and will come back tomorrow to check out my post.

This is the 1st book in a series called Divergent.

 

In the future, the world is ruined, and a new way of running things will determine who you are and your place in the world. Society is divided into factions, and your place in one of these is decided by a test at the age of 16.

Beatrice has never felt like she fits into her parents faction, but little does she now that she doesn’t really fit into any of them. Her test was inconclusive, making her a ‘Divergent’, something that she must keep to herself, for they are feared. She choses to be a soldier, and must complete their initiation or become factionless. Only her faction is forced into attacking her parents faction, and her being a Divergent is the only thing that stops her succumbing to a mind controlling serum and doing so.

Beatrice is forced to make a stand, but what will the cost be?

Hel is a Norse Goddess, and unwanted, even by her own family, simply because she is not one of the elite, oh and that her legs belong to a corpse. And because her two brothers have been prophicised to destroy the Gods, she has been banished to the underworld to be the Goddess to the dead. It’s unfair, but life has always been unfair to her, so she tries to make the best of it and builds herself a home worthy of a Goddess.

Only the world of the Gods is under threat, and Hel suddenly finds herself wanted back amongst those who condemned her to the Underworld. But how will she save them, and will they even thank her for it?

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF MY FRIENDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2016, like many years, has had it’s ups and downs for all of us. But it is at the New Year that most of us reflect, not just on the past year, but our whole lives, and look to the future with hope. One thing that I am always thankful for is my family and friends, and that includes my Pottermore family. So wherever you find yourself in 2017, know that you are not alone, and that you will always have friends.
