Ten sci-fi novels featuring more action than most summer movies

At io9 Charlie Jane Anders compiled a list of ten science fiction novels that pack more action than most summer movies.  One title on the list:
Divergent by Veronica Roth

This is just one of the many, many dystopian young adult science fiction novels that have trundled down the assembly line in the years since Hunger Games unleashed an insatiable hunger. But it's becoming a movie soon, and people are enthralled by this frenetic depiction of a future Chicago where everybody has to choose to embody one singular virtue. Reviews of this book tend to mention its nonstop violence and Roth's mastery of action scenes.
Read about another novel on the list.
