Better lock down your faction soon: Divergent author Veronica Roth is coming out with a new series—excuse me, "duology."

The as-of-yet unnamed series will explore "the story of a boy who forms an unlikely alliance with an enemy," said HarperCollins Publishers in a press release Monday. "Both desperate to escape their oppressive lives, they help each other attain what they most desire: for one, redemption, and the other, revenge." Juicy. We're thinking aliens and…light sabers? (It's also described as "in the vein of Star Wars," after all.)

The first book will publish in 2017, with another to follow in 2018, so it's a good thing we've got the Insurgent movie to hold us over. Watch the latest trailer below.
