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 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.
SOOO this book. I waited a while to read it, which is really strange actually, mostly because I finished Divergent and Insurgent back to back, before there was a movie deal. I stumbled upon them when I first bought my Kindle Fire and loved them, and even shared them with my old English teacher who also, loved them. But I waited on this one and I’m not sure why.
I’m pretty sure I decided to pick up this book because I saw the Divergent movie and remembered how much I loved it and figured I should finish it. But I also thought, because I saw a quick review on GoodReads that it had been spoiled for me, and what I thought was the ending sounded absolutely horrendously terrible so I decided just to not.
BUT, that wasn’t the ending that I thought it was going to be. It was actually totally different, and I was really actually happy with it. I have this thing for when bad things happen to the main characters of books (No Spoilers!) but I was really really really happy with it. And Four, I seriously fell even more in love with Four. It helps that Theo James plays him the movie, right?
But back to the book, I wasn’t a huge fan of the whole scientific aspect of it, which is honestly so strange because that’s what I really loved about the Birthmarked Trilogy by Caragh O Brien (which I also have yet to read the last book…Do you see a pattern? Same with the Cahill Witch Chronicles by Jessica Spotswood…hmmm..) But it just seemed kind of thrown at you, it didn’t REALLY felt like it was built up to, and what I liked about this series is that it didn’t seem like The Maze Runner or whatever where people were calling the shots. Either way, I actually really enjoyed this book, and I’m happy the ending wasn’t what I thought it was.
And I really love Four. Like it might actually rival my love for Nico DiAngelo, which as most of you probably know from my House of Hades review, is strong.
