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.
Ok, so I tried getting back on the Divergent band wagon hoping that book three would be the saving grace. Book two wanted to kill me I think but I made it through. I have to admit it wound up being good but I had to push through all the drama to get to this one.
Which starts with more drama.
Personally, I have a question for the fans… why, WHY are Four and Triss together? These two just kill me. It seems that they argue more than they talk. Until they start kissing and then they both forgive the other one’s transgressions until the next transgression. Relationships are not just about kissing! This drove me crazy.
I have to admit I did start getting into this one. Probably when Triss told Four off. Yay!! I think I did a happy dance! I mean seriously, I was over their bickering! That was also right around when the real drama in this one kicked in. And it was really real this time. Unlike the first two which held a ton of drama, they did not seem to really catch my attention and I got so tired of the angst. This one, however, was definitely a book three. Much better than the first two, questions are answered (finally) and things came together. Sadly, some of those things aren’t how I would have imagined and by the end I was freaking nearly crying over this.
So… I guess I’m a fan now. I joined the band wagon really kicking and screaming but this one really did it for me. More than anything else, I enjoyed the plot in this one and Triss really came into her own. I wound up liking her more in this than in the first two.
