Synopsis: The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered—fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.

 

But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and of herself—while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.

 

Told from a riveting dual perspective, Allegiant, by #1 New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth, brings the Divergent series to a powerful conclusion while revealing the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of readers in Divergent and Insurgent.

 

Review: This is the third and final book in the Divergent series by Veronica Roth. I don’t think this is the best book of the series, but I did thoroughly enjoy it. The story picks up where you left off in Insurgent with the factionless causing problems for the people who were in the factions. It has become a society led by a tyrant, and it isn’t going very good. I think some parts of this book could’ve been written a little bit differently to have some more connecting stuff from the previous books. I loved the previous two and some of this book lived up to those standards, but some of it didn’t. Tobias’ character was extremely annoying to me for most of the book which is the main reason I didn’t love this book as much. I did really enjoy seeing some of the other characters being brought into the spotlight more in this book than previous books. The ending was somewhat predictable and somewhat irritating. The epilogue could’ve been immensely powerful but sadly it wasn’t. I would recommend this book to people who have read the previous two books, but I wouldn’t recommend just reading this book because it would be immensely confusing. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
