Part of the Divergent series
What if your whole world was a lie? The thrillingly dark conclusion to the No. 1 New York Times bestselling DIVERGENT trilogy. What if a single revelation - like a single choice - changed everything?
What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected?
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 by infjsarah
I enjoyed this but I was also slightly disappointed. I loved Divergent and enjoyed Insurgent. But I was slightly disappointed with this. The dual telling of the story didn't work because as other reviewers have said the voices are the same and you often can't remember who is speaking. And as a result you care less about both Tobias and Tris. The reason is of course the surprise end but it could have been better.I was also disappointed by the explanation for the creation of the factions in the city. The belief in a genetic purity is an old story for humanity. Tris's world is just apartheid with a slightly different form.There's certainly nothing wrong with another story that emphasises how wrong that is but for me the execution failed. Explaining and concluding a dystopia tale is always hard and Ms Roth is a new writer so I will forgive her for the magic of Divergent alone.

What did you all think of the crazy twist? I understand it, not sure it's a choice I agree with. Harsh book at times. A satisfying trilogy.

Review by wyvernfriend
So we find out about the background of the cities, the mess that was made, the complicated background needs some fixing which won't be without sacrifice and the end was a bit of a sucker punch.It's an interesting world, an interesting series and well done. Quite readable.
