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.
My review: Well, I guess this is the end of another series. I LOVED the Divergent series and Allegiant was such a wonderful ending. People compare it to Mockingjay in the sense that it’s not the happiest of ending, but to me it’s the most realistic.
I liked Allegiant much more than Insurgent. There was more action and I think just more stuff going on overall, which didn’t happen in Insurgent. Insurgent set up the political and socio-economic conflict, while Allegiant had actual fighting and war. There was so much build up and planning in Allegiant and sometimes it was for nothing which kind of irked me, but then I realized that’s how it would be in real life. Sometimes you have to plan and plan for something that may never happen.
Another thing I liked was the switching viewpoints between Tris and Tobias/Four. I really enjoyed reading from his point of view, especially since in my last review I complained about not knowing what was going on in his head.
I guess Allegiant pleasantly surprised me and I was up until 1AM finishing the book. I think my tweet from last night says it all best:
With bleary eyes and a tear streaked face, I have finished Allegiant. It’s 1 AM and I regret nothing.

So, overall, I’m sad the series is over because I can’t read anymore about Tris who is such a kick-ass character and she had so much development along with all the other characters with her. However, everything was SO well done and Veronica Roth is such a great author. I can’t wait to see what she’ll write next!
