Allegiant the third book of the Divergent series by Veronica Roth. It's a dystopian series in the young adult genre. I always say this but please don't be deterred by young adult series. They can be totally amazing.


Good Reads' 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. "

What I Thought: Well, unfortunately it has been several months since I read Insurgent, the second book in the series. In that time span, I plum forgot half the characters, which side they were on, and what they were attempted to do. That didn't do me any favors while reading Allegiant. However, this one wasn't the page turner that the first two were and that made me sad. I knew I had to see the series through and I'm still super excited to see the Divergent movie when it comes up but Allegiant left me a bit underwhelmed. It took until about 3/4 of the way through the book to give me some good suspense and then the ending just felt a bit anti-climactic. I wanted to love this. I just didn't.

Rating: * * 1/2
