Allegiant by Veronica Roth

The final battle – the final sacrifice – and the final book in the Divergent series. The stakes have never been higher and I’m sad to see this one go.

Publisher’s DescriptionThe 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.

Possible spoilers beyond this point.

I think I liked this more than Insurgent. Exciting kinds of world-buidling – like having two worlds in one. The faction-shattered world they left behind and the one they’re in now – where nothing is ever black and white. I loved the action and mystery of never knowing who was on what side was really cool.

I actually loved Tobias’s point of view. It’s interesting to see how he really is deep inside when he comes off as a tough guy in Tris’s perspective. I like that he’s actually vulnerable and driven by his past. I like that both characters have faults so they don’t come off as perfect. And I love that tough Tris came back. She was her fearless self again, more akin to the Abnegation within her genes.

Sometimes the GD/GP got confusing, especially since I’m not a very science-oriented person. But the author kept it fairly simple and that was nice.

I love the introduction of some new characters, as well as some growth with our older ones. You see Cara and Christina in a better light, maybe even Caleb after all he’s done. Nita and Matthew played some interesting roles as well as David. There are characters that die and there are characters that are reborn in ways you don’t expect.

badge4v4Overall, I really enjoyed reading this trilogy. I wish I would have had more time to read it. I’m excited to see all the rest of the movies come to life.
