Allegiant (divergent #3) by Veronica Roth (Teen Fantasy/Adventure) *spoiler free*

17736795One choice will define you.
What if your whole world was a lie?
What if a single revelation—like a single choice—changed everything?
What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected?

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.

Stars: 3/5

Soooo a lot of people hated this book. I didn’t. I try not to do spoilers so I won’t start now. This book was a lot more scientific than the other two, less action more information. It got a little dull at times and I did miss that rush from the action in Divergent and Insurgent, but I see why explaining all this to the readers was necessary, without it we would have a lot of unanswered questions. I did get annoyed with Tris and Four’s drama, same fight different day. It got so annoying sometimes that I just wanted them to call in quits. I also didn’t like Four in general as much in this book as the others. He isn’t the Four they made him out to be in Divergent, even in Insurgent we saw him starting to lose who he was. This book does have quite a few surprises in it that kind of makes up for things. Now back to the end, Roth went WAY past where most YA authors go. I understand it a lot though and in another post I’ll go through and explain why I understand (it deserves its own post and again I want this one to be spoiler free). I get why people were angry though, we have a certain expectation of how these books should end because they are YA books. If you have that idea in your head when you read this get it out and expect the unexpected. It gets only 3 stars instead of the 5 I gave Divergent and Insurgent because it lacks. I’ve found most series lately lack in their last books. It’s like movies, the first one is always the best.
