The first book in the series was intriguing, the second was a stretch, and this final installment was disappointing. It was not just the ending that was a disappointment but the entire story arc.

Without spoilers, I cannot understand how the final actions of our protagonists could have had any impact on their new home. Was this new home isolated? No. Did they destroy all records? No. Sorry, too much of a stretch. And the whole story arc that led them there was just as ill conceived.

Publisher Synopsis

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. 

Told from a riveting dual perspective, Allegiant, by #1 New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth, brings the Divergent series to a powerful conclusion while revealing the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of readers in Divergent and Insurgent.
