Allegiant by Veronica Roth

allegiant-cover “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.”

Allegiant is the third and final book in the Divergent series. Before I read this book I heard that it wasn’t as great  as the other two and that some folks were disappointed by it, considering how AMAZING the first two were. I  was nervous  about reading it because I assumed that it really was going to be uninteresting. But I loved this one! I  thought that  it was just as good as the other two. Not as intense or action filled, but it did answer many of the questions that I had. Even though I would have preferred a different ending I was satisfied with the one that the author chose to go with, considering that there was a good reason that what happened, happened. I found the middle of the book to be a little dull since the first two were so intense and this one wasn’t as heart pumping. No need to worry about that, it picked up pretty quickly and captured my attention right away. I don’t want to spoil the ending for anyone who has not read it but I will say that even though the end is heartbreaking, it is realistic and that is one reason why I was so okay with the way it ended. The ending kind of reminded me of some of the endings that Nicholas Sparks incorporates into his novels. Not how it all played out, but the outcome and the emotions that go with it. A great book!
