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 was so excited for the end of this trilogy. I have to say that this last installment wasn’t as epic as I was hoping it would be.

I really liked Tris’s parts. She’s the one we heard the other books through. She really is a strong character, and makes the hard decisions. I love Four, but I didn’t really care for his narration. He seems like a pouting child most of the time. I do, however, admire his strength when he finally stands up to some people.

The action is pretty nonstop. You also find out there are so many different plots going on with the characters. You never know who you can really trust, and have to pick the better of two evils. I feel like this installment had more to do with morality. Not everything is clear cut, there are fuzzy areas. Many of the characters grew because of these fuzzy areas.

That’s all I’m going to say. I don’t want to give any spoilers for those that haven’t read it. Like I said, I enjoyed it, but it wasn’t as awesome as I wanted it to be.
