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.
Overview *Contains Spoilers*
This was the second time I read this book and it was even better than the first time I read it. I really love how Roth has composed the chapters in the last book, alternating between Tris’ and Tobias’ viewpoints to give different perspectives on events that are happening. This gives Tobias the ‘air time’ that he deserves as I felt that he has been overshadowed in the previous two books, by Tris.
One thing I will say, though, is grab those tissues, because this book is filled with deaths of characters that we, as the reader, have grown to love.
Overall, I absolutely loved this book, but make sure to read the first two in the series first as you need time to build a relationship with the characters before your heart gets inevitably broken in Allegiant.
