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.

Okay, I this review is going to be a very quick review, mostly because I don’t really have much to say about this book. Needless to say, it was a lot worse than book 1, Divergent (click here for the review on that) and book 2, Insurgent (click here for the review on that).

My opinion on Tris is pretty much the same as the previous two books. She is just a stubborn, grumpy protagonist. For some female characters, that personality may on some levels seem okay however, it was just getting very annoying with Tris. She was just like a petite brat.

However, my opinion on Four/Tobias drastically changed with Allegiant. He just became a guy version of Tris and there were (on numerous occasions) whereby you didn’t know if it was Tris’s perspective or Four’s perspective in the book. They just became one and not in a very good way.

What annoyed me the most about this book was Tris dying.  I know I can’t stand the girl however, it’s always a vital mistake if you go and kill off the main character, especially if it’s a book series whereby the readers have come to know the character. Looking at the past reviews for this book, I can see I’m not the only with this opinion.

All in all, the book just didn’t pick up on its plot line. Once Tris and her little group escaped from the Factionless and into the outside world, you would have thought something big was going to happen. The only thing ‘big’ was the memory serum and re-starting the whole factions. In my opinion it was kind of a letdown after months and months of leaving the readers in suspense about the outside world.
