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.
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.

Praise for Divergent:
"The next big thing." (Rolling Stone)
"If you like Hunger Games & Twilight, then get stoked for Divergent! Trust us on this - this baby is going to blow up BIG! And if you chose to remain factionless, then you're gonna be one lonely soul." (PerezHilton.com)
A truly great story with a wonderfully sad bitter twist at the end. An absolute shame it's the end of this unique series.
Did not read the print version.
The obvious choice would be Tris but in all honesty in this book it was Tobias (Four). I like the fact that his character was explored in this book and, myself a man, I can identify with some of his internal struggles.
The contrasting voices telling the 2 different characters' stories were very nicely done and adds a great dimension.
There is so much happening in the book! Particular points for me were when Tris & Tobias finally reach a point where it seems like they may have a future together, Tris & her brother finally making peace and the whole last bit from when "it" happens to the end.
I know there are a lot of different views on the ending of the book. For me the "it" that happens makes the story great and very unique and very memorable, the "thereafter" is the really depressing part as it does not provide proper closure and does not really turn into a good enough positive to dampen the sadness. But that being said, still a great book and great series.
I wasn't expecting something amazing. These types of books are my guilty pleasures. The first and second book I can somewhat get into but this third one was so far off from the first two I felt like the story just took a wild turn. Without giving the ending away, I didn't see the point of it. I was surprised and not in a good way.
The 1 reader Emma Galvin
Not Aaron Stanford
This book was spoilt by the 2 readers It was ok when Emma Galvin read the first 2 in the series but the introduction of Aaron Stanford didn’t work for me
Fab story compelling read
Hunger Games as its high energy
easy read on the bus
Made me laugh , makes you think
Cant wait t finish
"No body likes a sad ending."
The ending, I'm a happy ending kinda girl.
Yes, the idea behind the books are great and I really enjoyed the series over all I just felt the last book was a bit disappointing.
No I haven't but I enjoyed listening to both and would again
Not sure, probably.
Loved the idea behind these books and if you enjoy books like the hunger games then I would definitely recommend theses.
"A little disappointed."
Having previously enjoyed the other 2 books in the series I felt disappointed by how the story telling had developed. It felt to me like it had become more about describing fours jaw line than the struggle between the factions.
The ending did improve the story for me. Helping me to reconnect with character I had enjoyed learning about in previous books.
To me the final book was a let down in comparison to the rest of the series.
"A bit disappointing"
Least favourite book of the series - seemed a bit slow to get into and definitely not as gripping as the first two books.
Yes the first 2 books were much better written and better story lines
Maybe if something new comes up
No, it really felt like a filler. first 2 books seemed to fill well with a full story, this one just seemed to be a filler until the end of the book came.
Get the 3 books as enjoyable in all but book 3 really seemed to lack the story of the first 2 books and was a bit of hard work to keep concentration to the end.
I would recommend this whole series to anyone who loves the dystopian genre. Before I listened to this book I heard lost of bad thing about the ending, but for me it was perfect. Sometimes not liking what is happening in the story is not the same as not liking the book and I think some people confused the two. Personally I think this is the best series I've listened to all year.
The Hunger Games series. Another of my favourites and I think if you enjoyed that one, you'll love this too.
I thought the narration was perfect for the characters.
I wanted too, but time restraints and family life meant it took me 5 days to get through.
Definitely a series worth using your credit on!
"One of my best reads"
I love this book it keeps you hooked
It so good. And it is one of my best read.
This is such an important story for teenagers. But it is so important for all of us. I still mourn her passing...
"Good book but hate the ending"
Good book but there is no need for what happens at the ending ( No Spoilers) wish I could forget the book and read it all again
I was so sad at the end, but to be honest it was the best way to end the trilogy.
leaving a feeling of hope under adversity.
