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 meaningliess. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend to 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.
After the reading of Insurgent, I was worried but hopeful to read Allegiant, and I can honestly say it was not a disappointment.
Taking place immediately after the events of the last book, Allegiant presented some classic themes in unique and interesting ways. The ability to relate to the main characters, which was lacking in Insurgent, was much easier this time around. This book’s writing style was also unique from the others in that different chapters were told from the perspective of either Tris or Four. Although I didn’t notice this at first (which was a little confusing), once I did, it worked to aid in relating to the story and its characters. It had plenty of suspense and action and the ending was great (although not the one I personally was hoping for). Overall I can say that my faith in the series was redeemed, and it made me happy to add this series to my Science Fiction collection.
