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.

My Thoughts:

Divergent is a hugely popular YA dystopian series.  If you have read it, you really need to!  I read books one and two back to back in 2012 (I think, or was it early 2013?).  I immediately went online and pre-ordered book three, Allegiant, and like thousands of readers out there, I counted down the days to its release date last fall.  Immediately after the publication date, reviews started coming in and surprisingly not all of them were positive.

Having read some of the negative reviews, I wasn’t sure what to expect when I began Allegiant.   I was afraid that I would be disappointed but I wasn’t.  I found Allegiant to be a solid ending to the Divergent series.  The ending may not have been what readers had hoped for (which I think was the crux of most of the negative reviews) but I think it was the right ending.  I actually applaud Veronica Roth for being brave enough to write the ending that she believed in knowing that it might anger some of her fans.

I don’t want to say too much about the book for fear of inadvertently including some spoilers so suffice it to say that while I didn’t feel the urgency to finish this book as I did with the other two, I did still enjoy it and am sad that this is the end of the series.  I can’t wait to see what Veronica Roth writes next!
