Dauntless UK Blog Tour: What is Dauntless anyway?

Are you getting ready for Insurgent by Veronica Roth, the  hotly anticipated sequel to Divergent? I know I am. Divergent was probably my favorite read of 2011, and I have high hopes for Insurgent. I hope it lives up to the hype. You can read my review on release day, May 1st! Come back and see what I thought.

If you've read Divergent then you know that chosing a faction decides your friends, define's your beliefs and determines your loyalties...forever. There are five factions to choose from.

Abnegation: The Selfless

Candor: The Honest

Amity: The Peaceful

Erudite: The Intelligent

Dauntless: The Brave

I am Dauntless. *screams and shouts like a fan girl*  Being Dauntless I'd get to see Four. Yippee!!

So, what is Dauntless anyway?

The Dauntless are brave, courageous, determined, and strong. They are not afraid to jump into battle and take risks. Tris took a risk by joining the Dauntless faction and she soon faced her fears and became one of the strongest members. Four also knew that the Dauntless faction was where he belonged. Do you want to find your inner strength? This is where you need to be!

I don't think I've ever thought of myself as brave before. That is... before I had kids. I became brave once I had my son. There isn't a thing I wouldn't do to protect him. Period. All of the unknown situations you willing put yourself in as a new Mom can be scary, but you do them anyway. You have to. There isn't a choice. I imagine I'd be like those Mom's who can lift a car off their baby or jump in front of a bullet for their children. 

I also think I was brave moving to another country with my husband. I had no family, no friends, and no idea about the culture.  I've been living in Scotland for 4 yrs now and I'm thriving. There is a small percentage of people that do that. 

I want to know what makes YOU Dauntless? Or do you identify with another faction? What qualities have you shown? 


  1. Great post Mary!!!! So glad we're Team Dauntless! Donna xoxox

  2. Moving country without knowing other people must be so scary! I think you're really brave for doing that! Go dauntless :)


I love to hear what you think.
