Allegiant, the third and final book to the Divergent trilogy, was a thrilling story with a stunning ending. The novel alternates between the first-person perspectives of the main characters Tris and Tobias. Now that the war has ended and the faction system has broken down, a new form of tyranny has taken over. Tris and Tobias join the Allegiant, a group that aims to restore the previous faction system and explore outside of the city. Tris and Tobias are sent out of the city along with others, where they meet new people and learn more about their world and their identities. Tris and Tobias react differently to this new information, and they face additional struggles involving each of their families. Throughout the book, Tris and Tobias face challenging choices that will determine their futures and who they are.
Allegiant was an excellent read! The book was exciting and packed with suspense, and it revealed a lot of information on Tris’s society that I was curious to know. I thought Allegiant was the most emotional out of the books in the Divergent trilogy, and I especially enjoyed the book’s ending. Although I did not think that Allegiant topped the first book (Divergent), I thought Allegiant was an amazing read and definitely more interesting than the previous book (Insurgent). If you read Divergent and want to reveal the truths of Tris’s dystopian society, then I would recommend finishing the Divergent series to read Allegiant!
