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
Oh I haven’t wrote a review in forever! School! I’m in college and ugh…so much work and reading. I haven’t even been reading as much as I’ve wanted to…which sucks! I have eight unread books here on my bookshelf that I’m just soooo ready to read them. It’s sad too because I keep buying books knowing I have books here to read AND knowing that I don’t have time to read. But hey, thats what a bookworm does right? 😉
Allegiant was slow but oh so emotional. The feels were just too much to handle! I couldn’t get a handle on my emotions for days and days after finishing this novel. Just knowing that the trilogy is over is sad. I love Veronica Roth’s characters and world that she has created, and I will be sure to look out for more of her books.
Theme: Bravery, Sacrifice, Love, Rebellion

Set in first point of view with two narrators: Tris and Four
Tris→ Tris shows her true bravery in this novel. She was sooo annoying to me in Insurgent, but reading about her in this novel has made me love her again.
Four→ I don’t know…since this was the first novel with Four’s point of view..it seemed…weird. He kinda seemed like a whinny baby a little. He was in his emotions so much to the point where I was just dreading reading his point of views. However, it did show the battle Four was going through within himself even though he showed a tough exterior to the world. It was interesting reading his point of view and I enjoyed it…just not as much as I hoped.
The details in this novel were great! The imagery was well-written and it was easy to understand and picture everything.
If you’ve read Allegiant, what are your thoughts on the ending?
Lesson Learned? Love and be strong.
