Q: Which country was the first to buy/receive international rights for the Divergent Series?

A: “Verlagsgruppe Random House in Germany was the first to offer on the series, just days after Harper acquired the rights from Veronica. Danke schön to Veronica Roth for giving me one of the most exciting and aggressive translation offers of my career! It’s a wonderful success in Germany and she just spent a few days this past week meeting her German fans face to face in Berlin. The above photo is from said visit!”
