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 meaningliess. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend to 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.
I suppose a fire that burns that bright is not meant to last.
I fell in love with him. But I don’t just stay with him by default as if there’s no one else available to me. I stay with him because I choose to, every day that I wake up, every day that we fight or lie to each other or disappoint each other. I choose him over and over again, and he chooses me.
She taught me all about real sacrifice. That it should be done from love…That it should be done from necessity, not without exhausting all other options. That it should be done for people who need your strength because they don’t have enough of their own.
Knowledge is power. Power to do evil…or power to do good. Power itself is not evil. So knowledge itself is not evil.
OHMYGOD! It’s over. I cried. There’s really not much that I can put into this review without spoiling the ending. So, I’m just going to rant about how it is over. I knew what was going to happen because my fiance was talking to me about it one day after watching Divergent and he thought I had finished the whole series. So, I knew what was going to happen. But the entire time I was coming up with different scenarios that Veronica Roth could have gone. And secretly hoping that my fiance was wrong. He wasn’t.
So, it’s officially over. The only thing left I have to read that deals with this world are the novellas. I’m sure I’ll read them at some point. But right now. I think I need some space. I think I need some time to just think about everything that happened in this series. The good, the bad, the ugly.
Do I wish it ended differently? I can honestly tell you that I don’t know. It may be the best ending and it may be the worst ending. I don’t have any thoughts on it yet. It’s like I don’t know how to process this series. I couldn’t give this book 5 stars. I really don’t know how to rate this one.. So, I’m just going to rate it 3.
If you have read this book and want someone to vent with or just talk things through? I’m here. Believe me I’m needing to talk things through. Just contact me. 🙂
