Book Review: Allegiant by Veronica Roth

                          (Divergent Trilogy: Book 3)


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.


My Review

What would you do if you discovered everything you thought you knew about yourself, your family, and even your world was a lie? This is what happens to Tris and her friends in this stunning conclusion to the Divergent Trilogy.

Allegiant is a story of love and hate, of madness and self sacrifice, of decency and degradation. It's a powerful story about what it means to be human. Following Tris and Tobias as they struggle to discover who they truly are is an emotional rollercoaster ride made all the more intense by what's going on in world around them. Everything is falling apart and it only stands to get worse if they can't find a way to stop it.

This is by far the best book in the trilogy but I warn you, the ending is a punch in the gut. I suspected it was coming but I was so hoping I was wrong that when it actually happened it still managed to take away my breath. But if the moment itself was painful, then the aftermath is even worse.

I highly recommend this series to any fan of YA dystopian fantasy. You'll fall in love with the characters and have your heart broken at every turn, but it's well worth it.
