Allegiant

by Veronica Roth

HARPERCOLLINS PUBLISHERS | October 22, 2013 | Hardcover

Allegiant is rated 3.3061 out of 5 by 49.

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.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from End to a Great Series I do feel that this book is not as great as the other two, but not because of what happens near the end. Yes, it did break my heart, and yes I did shed a few tears. I feel it is still good to read and finish the series. Even for how sad the end part was, it was in my opinion the best part of the book, so raw and true. The very end of the book in respects to the last chapter of course did not end how I envisioned from the beginning or wanted it to; but I think the ending was very nice and made me happy that everyone is at peace. As I said before the near end is heartbreaking, but what is said in that chapter and chapters that follow are so true to life and powerful. You know a book or series is good when it pulls on your heart strings, no matter if you agree with everything in the book or not. I also like to mention that even though I would have preferred another outcome for this series, I do hope that the movies stay true to book and not feel the pressure to take it in another direction. Thank you for this series! Very much enjoyed

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good This series is amaturely written and not just not good. Probably fine for teens but not adults. I regret buying them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Allegiant Roth writes this novel with the same easy going writing style and vivid descriptions that we?ve come to appreciate in this series. I had a much harder time staying focussed on this one compared to the first two novels in the series. It was still a well done novel but was missing the ?can?t put it down? quality that both Divergent

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 3.5 stars, A Good Series Allegiant is the third and final novel in the Divergent series and I thought it was good. I was a bit disappointed with this book, I thought it could have been better. I feel like the story kept looping in a circle and I was not a big fan of the dual POV because there were times I forgot it was fours chapter, I was spoiled about a big event that happens in this book so I knew what was going to happen and Im not happy with the outcome but overall I think this was still a very solid series and I have enjoyed it a lot. Overall this series is really good and I would recommend it. :0)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great book series! I loved the book series! The last novel was my least favorite. The book was still good, I guess I just pictured a different ending. Still a must read

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good but disappointing I'm not going to spell out what happens exactly because I don't want to spoil it but I wanted to still give my opinion on what I thought was a terrible ending to what could have been a great series. I was excited to read this third novel but was hugely disappointed by the ending. I understand what Roth was probably trying to convey but most of us have been touched by tragedy or let downs in life where you have to pick up the pieces and try to move on and sure I think most of us get that "happily ever after" is just in fairy tales but I just felt that after reading about all the battles that these two characters go through, we could have got some satisfaction when it was all said and done, that we would get to know that off they went through their "sort of" happy ending rebuilding together. I say "sort of" because they both lost a lot and wouldn't have come out of it unchanged but it would have been satisfying to see them end up together when the dust settled. I felt really "ripped off" as someone else in another review put it that this book had such a disappointing ending. This however is just my opinion.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very disappointed. I love the divergent series... probably the greatest books I have ever read. But this book was VERY slow, and it feels like we are ripped off of a proper ending. I sobbed the last few chapters because I felt robbed of what should have been an amazing story. You can tell that Roth was rushed to finish this book. Very disappointed, but still read it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing book - MUST READ It kind of bothers me that people are giving this book a bad rating because of the ending. It was a huge twist and definitely not what I expected, but amazing nonetheless! I mentioned in my review of Divergent how Roth's writing is a little underdeveloped, but Allegiant shows what a great writer she has become just over the course of 3 novels. Allegiant was by far my favourite of the trilogy - the plot twists, writing, and general storyline took my breath away. At first I was upset with the ending because I couldn't believe it was true, but after coming to grips with it I realized how powerful it is - this book left an imprint on me like no other has and I will never forget this amazing story. It will make you think, it will make you cry, and it will make you realize how strong you are and what a beautiful thing life is. This book changed my life and I highly, highly, highly recommend it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great but disappointed I power read through the first two books and this book is very intense and great but it is sometimes BORING. The ending doesn't feel very right. If you want to read something sad but with a lot of drama go for it. But when your at the last chapter being you tissues with you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So SAD!!! I can't believe that Tris DIES!!!!! It's so disappointing, and the beginning of the book was quite mystifying. I expected Tris and Four to have a spectacular and grand wedding! But other than that, the book was intriguing and juicy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible I'm an avid reader and I've never been as disappointed in a series as I am in this one. The first book was awesome, the second okay and the third terrible. The writing, character development, plot and ending were horrific. There are so many series that I re-read and this will never be one of them. Allegiant made me regret reading this series. Complete waste of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it and Hated it By now, I'm sure you know that the ending is very sad. I totally didn't see it coming. I kept reading thinking somehow it's wrong and the character survived... I remember it wasn't until the last part of the last chapter that I actually accepted it. Veronica Roth did an excellent job. She made us fall in love with her characters to the point that I mourned their passing. I was angry and devastated when it all happened, but like some of the other characters, I realized it had to happen that way... enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It ruined me and mended me This series is absolutely amazing and Allegiant was great...don't get me wrong... but all I can say is that my heart hurts after reading it. I wasn't brave enough for the ending and I don't think I'll be able to make it through the books coming out based on Four. But I don't regret reading it, I regret taking it for granted.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing After reading the first two books of series, I feel in love with the character of Tris - the heroin of the story. Divergent started with her and she gradually grew into a strong person. The death of the main character, left a bitter taste.... filled with pain and heart ache. Won't recommend to any of my friends. I'm giving the books away to the local library.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The End. Slightly shocking and controversial ending among fans but I liked it. Allegiant was more than just "okay" but I could easily put it down. The pace was better than in Insurgent & the characters redeemed themselves (I was getting annoyed with them in book 2). The characters have matured and you can feel the gradual transition towards adulthood. It was nice to have the dual point of view, alternating between Tris and Tobias. As with Insurgent, the first half was very good, the middle fizzled out and the end was powerful. The story telling is choppy. Too often, situations were left without conclusion or resolution before switching to another one. There are too many unfinished conversations. I would have liked more depth in Tris & Tobias' relationship. The romance is very cut and dry, except for the end, which is powerful. Regardless, I enjoyed the ride Veronica Roth took us on. It was entertaining. I won't re-read the books but I will see the movies, based on my appreciation of the story. As for then ending (no spoilers), I found it fitting. I loved the way the ending was written: story & style. This is book 3 in the Divergent trilogy (Divergent, Insurgent & Allegiant). Short novellas are also available as add-ons to the trilogy. The story is set in a futuristic dystopian Chicago. Written in the 1st person, alternating from Tris and Tobias' point of view. This series has been written for a teen audience but can be enjoyed by adult audiences alike. Parental guidance and warnings: Violence, death & weaponry. I read at an average speed and it took me 12 hours to read Allegiant. Tags/genres: Dystopian, teen, politics, revolution, war, romance.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A terrible ending I was excited to find out about the outside world, unfortunately the author basically went back on a lot of what was said in the second book and the outside world was pretty boring. I didn't mind that the book was told from Tris and Four's point of view but I found the characters were being over dramatic and it ruined the cuteness of their relationship. I also found the ending disappointing because the character could just use will power to resist serums using willpower even though I know I couldn't resist a poison by will power.  If all you read is this sentence just know this book was boring had a poor ending and included the characters acting stupid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it ! I absolutely loved this book .. well the whole trilogy ! for those who love dystopian novels i highly recommend this trilogy to you. At first i thought The Hunger Games was amazing but after this i was like woah you cant even compare !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GOOD BOOK. Allegiant is one of the best books i have read in a while. the double perspective, which i noticed confused some people, was a great insight into Four's character once you got used to switching between them. the ending made me want to cry i was so upset, but you know what? Veronica made a tough, tough choice to be true to her characters, and to be true to her characters, it would have had to end this way. Allegiant will make you laugh, then it will make you cry, then it will make you angry. you won't forget it anytime soon. and that is the mark of a truly good book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ending! Allegiant by Veronica Roth is probably the last book in the Divergent series (on her website, Roth says that in her mind, this was always supposed to be a trilogy). The first thing I have to say about this book is that it was written in a different perspective than its predecessors. Divergent and Insurgent were written solely from Beatrice’s perspective making them easy to follow. However, Allegiant was written by alternating between Beatrice and Four’s perspectives. While reading, I found this very hard to follow at first as I was used to reading only from one perspective. But to be honest, once I got used to it, I enjoyed seeing the events from another perspective, allowing us to get to know another character as well as we came to know Beatrice. With books, I believe that the ending really can make or break its success. The ending of this novel is what affected me the most. It brought me to tears, and couldn't have been written any better! It wrapped up the trilogy beautifully and gave readers something to think about. Overall, I believe that Allegiant is my favourite book in the trilogy! This is because I loved learning more about the factions and how they came to be as well as learning about life on “the other side of the fence”. This trilogy as a whole is a must read.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from suprised,shocked & a bit disapointed After reading divergent and insurgent i fell under the spell of this series , i read the books over and over again (I even pre- ordered the box set). After reading the book my emotions and feelings are all over the place . I was both very shocked and surprise at what had happened. at first i was really angry at what the veronica had decided to do , but after much consideration i can see why she did what she did. She wanted her books to stand out over the others. But in my opinion that was the wrong move. She built up fans to eventually let everything come crashing down. So overall got to say not very happy with the ending.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No. Just no. I originally wrote a really long review and gave this book 4.5 stars, but that was just after i finished reading it. Looking back, i really hate this book.  Okay, so i love Tris and i love Tobias and i love a lot about Divergent, but each book after the first just got longer and boringer. Allegiant is slow and hard to get into. Tobias and Tris's relationship is annoying, i now find, and the book is kinda confusing. I want more emotion, more romantic scenes and more connection with the characters. Also more connection between Tris and Tobias The writing is good but dull and slow and i feel worse than the other books. And Peter's situation? That made me think lower about Tobias. I get it, but still... Ido love that big thing that happened - someone dying - because you don't see that often and it added dinamics but... There's no ending. Roth just kind of cuts it off. After that, there's really no ending. I want more feeling from the characters. Roth just skips two years and goes straight into the epilogue and doesn't give us real emotions. And, honestly, there isn't really any solution. I like what Roth did with the fractions and all but there is no resolution to their problems. Tobias's father is... Where? Roth kind of left us hanging. So i am very disappoined. The only thing i really like is that big thing - which is probably what everyone hates. But even with that it seems to minor, to dull, like that character didn't need to die. It didn't seem so important as it actually is. All in all, read this book if you like Divergent and Insurgent. Maybe youll love it and think it's flawless. But don't get your hopes up.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I loved the first two books, I felt that they were written well and were able to keep you reading.. Allegiant wasn't exactly like that. If there is one way to describe it, I would say that this book is like a generic pop song on the radio; you sing along the entire time, but it isn't the meaning of the song or the lyrics that make it enjoyable, it's merely the beat.   I didn't want to put the book down (not until the last part), but there were definitely parts and events in the book where I thought were incredibly rushed, slow, poorly written, and just downright unnecessary. I'm not one to nitpick a story much, as long as it is an enjoyable read, but for this book, it got to the point where I would notice problems the moment I ran into them, without even trying to find the things that didn't fit quite right.  Now let's regard the ending. It's not that the events themselves were sad (although they were absolutely depressing), the thing that I didn't like was that the characters, like Tris and Evelyn, felt so out of character that the plot felt incredibly forced in the direction it was going in. It doesn't take too much digging to find plot holes, either (I'm not going to get into those, keeping it spoiler-free). The entire story could've been much better, even with the sad ending, if it was just written better. I feel as though Roth was concluding the series with a definite conclusion, but it feels like she didn't have the skill level to accomplish a well-written ending with the turn in events she took. There really isn't much else to talk about in as much detail as the ending, but there were a couple of other things that I felt made this book much inferior to its predecessors. Beyond the gate wasn't bad, but was underwhelming, considering the suspense that was created about the outside world at the end of Insurgent. The dual POV of Tris and Tobias, although necessary, felt like a burden to constantly switch to the beginning of the chapter to remember who's POV I was reading. One more thing about the book and the ending.. if Roth had to explain the ending and provide explanations for why some things happened, then it's not very effective writing, and that may be one of my biggest problems with the book; it left me feeling empty, and with more questions. There was just too much about this book that I disliked to make me give it a higher rating than a 2. However, I would still recommend people who read the first two to read Allegiant and form their own opinions. If you've read my entire review, thanks for taking the time, and I hope my opinions have made any sort of impact. And although I would still recommend this book to some, for me, the series ended at Insurgent.

However, I would still recommend people who read the first two to read Allegiant and form their own opinions. If you've read my entire review, thanks for taking the time, and I hope my opinions have made any sort of impact. And although I would still recommend this book to some, for me, the series ended at Insurgent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satisfied Oh man. I don't know where to start! When I started the book, I had a hard time adjusting to the switch to Tobias' point of view. I kept thinking that in his chapters "I" was still Tris and it would totally confuse me. Once I got used to it though, I didn't mind it so much. In the beginning I was also disappointed because it just threw the characters back into a new revolution and more violence and my poor head was just like "GIVE THEM A BREAK!". I managed to get over that some point in the story though. But the ending? Perfection. It spoke volumes to each of the character's characters and made me that much more attached to each of them. It was a happy kind of sad. It left me completely satisfied with the story and the series.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't love it but still recommend it for Divergent fans I loved Divergent.  I would give THAT book a 4.5.  It was fun and exciting and not-put-downable, with a creative premise and a lead character (Four) that I couldn't get enough of.  Top marks for entertainment value.  But I agree that the overall series has been in decline, and while I didn't love this installment (it's my least favourite of the three), I still recommend it to fans of the first 2 books.  The first 1/4 of Allegiant is strong.  The 2 leads appear to find a good place in their relationship again, and the tone of the book here is fun and exciting.  I am happy we find out what's on the other side of the fence.  But after some far-fetched explanations, the story tends to drag, and some chapters feel like filler.  Many climatic scenes are rushed.  There are a few good scenes in the last 3/4s of the book, but not enough (compared to Divergent which had a great build-up and one great scene after another). But I had to find out where the story was going, and I'm glad Roth at least gave us something to fill that curiousity.  I liked the dual-voices chapter technique (it was necessary for this story), but wished the 2 voices were consistently more distinguishable.  I did NOT hate the controversial end.  I liked that Roth surprised us, actually.  I liked Peter's fate too (someone had to choose that path and it makes sense it was him).  And I like the similarities between the outcasts on all sides of the fence.  But my main disappointment is that this book just didn't seem as polished as the first two.  It felt to me like Roth had a great almost-final draft on her hands, and perhaps, with more tweaking, could have made it great.  At least some of the final scenes had the right emotional impact though.  Will this book deter me from seeing the movie?  Of course not! PS:  I liked the Indigo exclusive edition chapter. PPS:  I'm disappointed with some of the spoilers in the previous reviews.  Warn the future readers that they're coming, folks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A justifying ending to an incredible series. I genuinely enjoyed this Allegiant. Not as much as I loved Divergent, but it was worth reading. While I was reading the first two books I was wondering about what lies outside the fence, and in Allegiant we get to see that. Wasn't a fan of the duo-perspective, but later on in the book it was much needed. One thing everyone needs to clear up is that if you didn't like the book, then fine, it's your opinion. But you never, ever, viciously bash the author about it. Enough with the death threats! Yes, it was a tough book to get through and I cried for hours and hours upon it, but you must admit Veronica Roth did her characters justice. In Divergent, Tris wasn't used to all the death. In Insurgent, Tris plays with death. Finally, in Allegiant, she understands the true meaning of death and I praise Veronica Roth on how beautifully written it was. All in all, it was a great read, and I'm glad I took the time to do so. Thank you Veronica, for giving us this incredible adventure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from brilliant I am a mother who likes to read what her kids are reading for many different reasons but mostly to give us one more talking point. Anyway.. a lot of the time, the books are not what I would have chosen but there are ok. This series started off like that for me however I found once the reason for this dystopian society became clear, the story took on a new life. Unlike other dystopian series (which are ridiculous) you could actually see a group of "founding fathers" trying to create a new world and having peace on earth. Wouldn't we all want that? It made me wonder if I was in charge of creating a whole new "world" with the vision of having peace, how would I go about it? This series is about an experiment with high hopes but inevitably fails because it does not take into account that humans are complex Beings and don't fit into tidy little categories. It engages the reader to think about self discovery, race, judgements, control, the seductiveness of power, the fear of change, thinking for oneself, honouring differences, feeling whole and understanding all the layers within each of us that guides our behaviour, good and bad. The ending of this book was really unexpected but I thought it was brilliant. This girl Tris, is to be admired. I am looking forward to the Tobias short stories. I loved the two different perspectives/ experiences of exact same events.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fully wrapped up the series I know a lot of people may be upset with how the book ended, but that is actually what cemented for me that Ms. Roth is a brave writer.  There wouldn't be a lot of happily-ever-after stories coming out of this version of the future.  It would be unrealistic to include one here.  The hero may have passed but she was wonderfully, sadly mourned.  And the book had some wonderful points about life in general.  I really enjoyed the whole series.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good! I pre-ordered this book and was very excited to read it, I was a little disappointed with how it ended, but I believe that if it ended any other way it would have been too unrealistic. I read this no problem within a few hours, it was an easy read and I definitely recommend it if you've read the first two.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very disappointed I devoured the first two books twice and just couldn't wait to read Allegiant. I was very disappointed that Tris dies after everything she and Tobias went through. It just completely ruined the whole series for me. I was so looking forward to a happy ending.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sadly disappointing. I have waited for Allegiant to be published with abated breath and started reading it the moment I brought it home. A day later my husband asked me, "how is it?" and I couldn't answer him, so I said, "the jury's still out". Unfortunately it only got worse. The book starts off slowly and seriously stalls around the middle. It does eventually pick up a bit, but the action and plot seem forced, the POVs are very monotonous and hard to discern, and in the end, well, let's just say I think Ms. Roth has made a huge mistake. The solution to the problem was just too convenient, almost magical. Sort of "give everyone this pill and all will be well" without giving out spoilers. It turned me off. The book was finished for me on page 476 and I have no interest in reading the rest of it. It holds nothing that I need to know. I'm also reconsidering seeing the movie.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I know a lot of people are unsure about the way this series ends, but I felt that the way Veronica Roth wrote it, the conclusion we get is pretty logical and understandable. I think it's a good final chapter of this series. Would definitely recommend this entire series to anyone interested in dystopian fiction!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Glad the series is over I found Divergent very interesting.  Insurgent was alright. Already with the second book, I felt like it was dragging on.  By the end of Insurgent, I did wonder how this would all end.  I knew they would have to enter a new place but I wasn't sure exactly how that would fit into the whole scheme of things.  I rated Allegiant with 3 stars when I wanted to rate it 3.5.  It's definitely not 4 stars.  Without even going into the ending, I felt like the story just dragged on for a really long time because there was so much information and characters to take in.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great End to a Great Series After waiting a year and a half Allegiant has finally came out!! I really did like this book for many different reasons while some scenes I did not like. Veronica Roth has amazed me with her writing since the beginning with Divergent (one of my favorite books). I am sad to  see this series grow because I got so connected with the characters and the action. Tris and Four are characters that I will forever re-read over and over again. Veronica's writing was intense and full of suspense as we got to see the operations of the fractions. I never read any of the spoilers so I went into Allegiant head first and discovered why I did love this series.  It picks up right after Insurgent, after discovering who is Edith Prior is in the video. Allegaint really opens up more about the history of the fractions as well as the Allegiant's. While I was about to cry through some parts of the book it did start off slow to me. Allegiant showed us the people beyond the wall. Like the other books there are many sacrifices the characters go through to get to the end. Veronica Roth did a great job representing who Tris really is and her discovering who she really is. After reading on Veronica's site about the ending I felt it does fit the book perfectly. While others can be mad about the book remember that it remains true to the characters and what they did in every book.  Tobia's character point of view really changes throughout the book. I felt that Roth made Tobia's more of a depressing character the entire novel. I did like his views because we got to see a different part of him and his fears through his eyes. He was more distant with Tris at times but it was more understandable once you read  Allegiant. The plot about the outside world beyond Chicago was really interesting because we learned more about Tris' mom and how she came to Dauntless etc.  Overall the book was a good read, and it still has me thinking about the book to this day. There is so many questions that I would love to get answered but Veronica successfully did that with this book. It had a good ending that made me feel like crying and satisfied with what happened. I look forward to many other peoples reactions and thoughts after reading this final book in the Divergent series, but the first book will always be my favorite. Thank you Veronica Roth for creating this series and making the series one of my favorites. I will definitely be reading future books by this author!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disapointed I absolutely fell in love with the adventure that the first books brought but Allegiant, for me, just crashes and burns. I felt like 80% of the book took place in "one place" and there was way too much dialogue - it lost its fire power and individualism and seemed to focus too much on "why" they were doing the things they did.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed Feelings - No Spoilers I was completely taken in by Tris and Four. I love their story. I love how Veronica made them evolve together and individually. I could really feel how war and loss affected them and shaped who they turned out to be. I thought the book started off with so much potential and then about half way through it just took a nose dive. There were new characters introduced, which is fine as long as the old characters don't get pushed aside. The new people over shadowed the characters I had come to know and mostly love from the previous books. Some of the deaths were not necessary and they seemed rushed and added in for an emotional effect. Some characters we never find out what happened to them! When I finished reading the book I had more questions then when I started it. I feel like there should be a 4th book just to tie up all the loose ends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Horribly Amazing! Allegiant picks up right where Insurgent left off, and Tris and her friends are held captive by Evelyn, the leader of the Factionless. In order to escape the chaos within the city and aid those outside the gate, Tris and her friends align themselves with the Allegiant in order to flee the city’s walls. However the world outside is not at all what it seems. Once again loyalties are tested, new battles are brewing, and sacrifices are made. Who will survive, and who will die? Veronica Roth delivers an epic and shocking conclusion to the Divergent series that leaves Mockingjay’s finale look like child’s play. Don’t wait to get your hands on the final installment to his highly anticipated series!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Don't know what to think.... I was so looking forward to this book. And after reading it, I don't know what to think, I don't know if I loved it or if it ruined the series for me. I loved Divergent and Insurgent and I loved the first....2/3's I guess. I loved what Tobias did about Caleb and his trial, and who was selected to leave the city. And what they found on the outside, even with all of its flaws, I liked the story as to how the city came to be (although I wish we knew for sure why Amanda Ritter aka Edith Prior went in). I liked how after some confrontation between them, Tris and Tobias seemed to finally figure out everything for their relationship. But thats when I started to be destabilized continually. One thin happens and you don't have time to fully process it before something else pops up and throws you off again. I like the epilogue, we can see where the characters are 2.5 years later, but by that time I was so filled with grief from the chapters that lead up to that point that I couldn't enjoy it. Right now I am giving this three leafs (this is my middle ground since it wont let me pick 2.5 and I think 2 is too low). Maybe once I read it again, prepared for what is coming up I can like it more. I am going to start at the beginning with Divergent and work my way through and see. I really hope I still love this series at the end.

About the Book

What if the whole world was a lie? What if a single revelationNlike a single choiceNchanged everything? The explosive conclusion to Roth's #1 "New York Times"-bestselling Divergent trilogy reveals the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of readers.

From the Publisher

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.

Veronica Roth graduated from Northwestern University with a degree in creative writing. While she was a student, she often chose to work on the story that would become Divergent instead of doing her homework. It was indeed a transforming choice. Now a full-time writer, Ms. Roth lives near Chicago.<_o3a_p>

"A surprise ending that is gutsier and much less predictable than the rest of the series would lead one to expect." (Los Angeles Times)
