Tris Prior's once believed faction-based society is shattered - fractured by violence and power struggles, and scarred by loss and betrayal. Thus Tris is ready when offered an opportunity to explore the world past the limits she is known to have. She and Tobias will perhaps find a simple new life to... gether beyond the fence, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties and painful memories.
But the new reality of Tris is even more alarming than that which it left behind. Old discoveries get meaningless quickly. New explosive truths are changing the hearts of those she loves. And again, Tris has to fight to understand the complexities of human nature - and of itself - while facing impossible choices about courage, loyalty, sacrifice and love.
Told from a riveting dual perspective, ALLEGIANT, by #1 New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth, draws a powerful conclusion to the DIVERGENT series, while revealing the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of readers in DIVERGENT and INSURGENT.
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.
I was so afraid that we would just keep colliding over and over again if we stayed together, and that eventually the impact would break me. But now I know I am like the blade and he is like the whetstone— I am too strong to break so easily, and I become better, sharper, every time I touch him.
The biggest shift is that the new book alternates between using Tris and Four as narrator...It...allows for a surprise ending that is gutsier and much less predictable than the rest of the series would lead one to expect.
Tris, Tobias and even some of the characters previously considered villains have internalized this lesson by the end of the series, and it will stay with readers after they have turned that final page.
