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.

About the Author

Comments about Allegiant:

Unrest settles into a walled off Chicago where its inhabitants have spent a considerable period separated into factions based on ideologies.
In short: Series starts well and goes downhill from there. A lot of running around happens but that doesn't make this a fast book or series.
The Good:
- The types of factions are a great idea.
- The way the factions are limited in their actions based on ideology is well thought out at times.
- The root cause for the concept is a good idea.
- The use of tests, serums and simulations is great fun.
The bad:
- You can use complications between lovers only so often. Unless this is a love story only, if every mayor story point is preceded by how this will potentially separate them, it gets tired really fast. (Not to mention illogical at times.)
- The author often spends pages on ruminating about emotions, explaining motivations, doubts and character dependencies, mostly to illustrate their limitations based on the faction system. After book 2, this could be shortened.
- By and large, the adults in this series are flawed. Anybody over 18 is likely evil, useless, dismissed, sidelined or used as a plot hook but not used in resolution.
- The dialogue and internal dialogue leave something to be desired. The flow often lacks and "black and white" prevails.
- Not a lot remains unpredictable…
- On paper the basis for the community will not hold water. In order not to spoil it, let's just say that the science is flawed.
All in all, I enjoyed the books enough to finish the trilogy but was happy to see the end of it by somewhere in book 2.
As they invariably bring up recent books on the shelves and covers: This has nothing to do with Twilight or Hunger Games.
Stephenie Meyer writes better (if you exclude book2 in Twilight). This often ranks somewhere close to the Twilight Trilogy book 2 when the two main characters contemplate each other ad infinitum. Hunger games is written better and Divergent feels similarly anticlimactic…all the time.
A decent "read and forget". Nice movie concept; so we will see what happens.

Not as good as the first two

      Comments about Allegiant:

      As I started the series, I read the other two books within hours. This one, however, was different. I'm not quite sure what it was about the book, but I was able to put it down and go to bed (this was not the case with the others!). I did, however, like the fact that half of the book was in Tobais' point of view. But perhaps the ending went on for a lot longer then I would have liked.

          Comments about Allegiant:

          No where near VR's best work, or in other words, the first two books in the series. Pacing was slow and dragged on, not much excitement, certain characters made decisions that were completely OOC, unnecessary deaths and a terrible ending.

              I waited desperately for Allegiant to come out! I did feel it was a little more rushed than the previous two books in the trilogy, however a fitting (though disappointing!) end to a brilliant story. I fell in love with the characters who are so vivid. For anyone who loves reading books about dysfunctional societies this trilogy is for you! You will no be disappointed!

                  Praise for DIVERGENT: "The next big thing." (Rolling Stone ) "If you like Hunger Games & Twilight, then get stoked for DIVERGENT! Trust us on this-this baby is going to blow up BIG! And if you chose to remain factionless, then you're gonna be one lonely soul." (PerezHilton.com ) "A taut and shiveringly exciting read! Tris is exactly the sort of unflinching and fierce heroine I love. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough." Melissa Marr, bestselling author of Wicked Lovely "DIVERGENT is a captivating, fascinating book that kept me in constant suspense and was never short on surprises. It will be a long time before I quit thinking about this haunting vision of the future." James Dashner, author of 'The Maze Runner'
