One choice will define you.

What if your whole world was a lie?
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.

After reading the first two books, I have to say that I’m disappointed in how this series concluded.

Plot: The plot is pretty much the same. Face-paced with lots of action, this story will not leave you bored. So much is happening in the story, that I couldn’t  stop reading it.

Love: Honestly, I felt like their love didn’t really moved much. They seemed more like friends than anything else. They do have their stolen moments but I feel like those parts are rushed.

Ending: Here is what disappointed me the most. The ending. If you read it, then you know why I’m sad about it. I honestly did not expect that happening but it certainly knocked me off my feet.

Although the story is good, the end totally killed it for me. I was left distraught for days and really couldn’t get over what I just read.  It just that, when you invest in books and characters, I was really looking for an hopeful ending. For me, this story ended up exactly where it started. Dark and confusing. Allegiant is good.

I give it 3 BITES!


Happy Reading!

    I know how this one ends Savy, and I’m upset about it as well. I know I won’t be reading Insurgent or this one because I’m just not that reader that can embrace an ending like this, not after spending so much time with these characters! I think Veronica is an amazing writer and storyteller, I just know this series is no longer for me.

    Your review describes so well how I felt also, and I think a whole lot of other people as well – maybe you can be our representative for the Distraught faction :). I really loved Divergent. Insurgent was good, but not as good as Divergent, so I was really hoping for an epic conclusion, which unfortunately didn’t happen. The ending ruined it for me also. I was really in a state of unbelief and was so distraught to, but also sooo disappointed. It had so much potential to be done better. I haven’t decided if I am going to see the movie yet, at this point I really don’t want to. We’ll see.

  3. I still haven’t read the second book and I’m scared to read this one. I hate bad endings and this one tells me I won’t like it either. 🙁

    This book was a big resounding meh for me. I really hated Tris and Four’s relationship in this book. So immature and whiny. That’s fine for the first book but by book three and considering ….stuff…I expected/wished for more.

  5. The way you summed up this book about it ending just like it started is excellent. After the years of reading and waiting, I was truly invested, too. I commend Roth for being brave with that ending and leaving me upset but it just felt wrong. I was wanting a hopeful ending, as I’m sure the rest of the world was too. I also felt like Tobias and Tris’ relationship felt more like friends. They didn’t spend much time together and when they did, they just bickered.

    Thank you for the review. Spot on. I have to wonder if she was rushed to finish this book. And the reason I say this is because she lost all the passion she had for her characters that was so profound in the first two novels. I feel she forgot about us readers and was just trying to meet a deadline. I don’t know but I know I loved the first two books and would have been willing to reread each one over and over but now it has been ruined. Maybe they will fix it in the movies.. Oh one can dream.
