Synopsis: 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.
Why?: I loved the first two installments in this trilogy, and I have been waiting for what seems like forever for this last book. I can't wait to find out what happens once the factions are disbanded, and what battles Tris (and Tobias) must fight this time around.
Expectations: I have extremely high expectations for this book, having read and loved the other two. I've also heard mixed reviews on this one, so I'm expecting a pretty controversial book. Especially when it comes to the ending.
Judging a book by its cover: I kind of love this cover. I love that it matches the other two, and I love the water symbol. I love the color scheme too. I would totally pick this up if I saw it on a shelf somewhere based on the cover alone.
