Book Review: Allegiant by Veronica Roth


Allegiant is the 3rd and final book in the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth.  My review will not be a spoiler for Allegiant, but if you haven't started the series and would like to (which I recommend) reading my review before reading Divergent and Insurgent will probably spoil a few things for you.

Fortunately because I didn't start the Divergent series until last year, I didn't have quite as long of a wait as others who read it sooner.  But for me, it was worth the wait.  In all honesty, it wasn't what I expected at all and that is not necessarily a bad thing.
I fell in love with the main characters Tris, the girl who chose her own path and has lead quite the action packed year.  Four who is strong and confident, yet has had so many hidden circumstances from his past that has led to him becoming the man he is.

Just like the other books, this one picks up right where the last book left off.  Except the book quickly throws us a twist, as Tris and Four decide to take up with the new Allegiant fraction and set out to see what they can discover.
But the author at this point decided to really throw us a huge twist in the story.  Everything we thought, everything Tris and Four believed was a lie.  There are more ties into this lie than either could have imagined and it really puts both their love and their lives to the test.

What I love about this series is, there aren't any messy love triangles that you already know what is going to happen in the end.  These are two characters with a powerful bond and love, and we get to watch it unfold and be tested time and time again.
Like the rest in the series Allegiant is fully action packed and quite suspenseful, you'll have a hard time putting it down as it throws you for loop after loop.

I would love to dive more into it, but I absolutely hate reading spoiler reviews, and I mentioned long ago I will never write a spoiler review.  So I hope this review still gives you enough to know if you want to read the series or not.
The ending was not at all what I had thought it would be, and after I thought about it, I am very much okay with that.  There is a deeper hidden meaning behind it, that I believe I understand and because of my adoration of the love between Tris and Four I really did like how it all ended.

I put this series on my highly recommended list!  With that said, I am looking forward to the movie, but I still have no idea how they will be able to do the books any justice.  Likely it won't, but it should be entertaining enough for the book lovers of the series!
This is a YA book, but I will go on the record that the entire series has a lot of violence.  Other than that, it is pretty clean.  I do recommend this book for anyone 16 and older who enjoy action packed suspense and great strong characters!
