Allegiant by Veronica Roth

By Pamelascott

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.


I PACE IN our cell in Erudite headquarters, her words echoing in my mind: My name will be Edith Prior, and there is much I am happy to forget. CHAPTER ONE, TRIS

This is my favourite book of the trilogy. It's very different from the other books especially Divergent. Tris and her friends finally learn the truth about their society and the factions. I barely remember the movie so a lot of what happens between the pages of Allegiant took me by surprise. I did remember the truth about the factions so this revelation didn't have the impact it could have. Unlike the other books, the chapters here bounce between different POV characters as they all struggle with the truth and their own place in the world offered outside the city they grew up in. Tris is torn between hating her brother for betraying her and working with the enemy and the love she still feels, despite her best efforts for her brother. Four (I can't think of his being called anything else) is struggling to come to terms with the fact his mother is alive. Tris and Four don't have time to deal with their own issues as what David, the leader of the world over the fence has in store is far worse that what they left behind. This is a rollicking end to a great series.
