In Allegiant, the third Divergent novel, the city Tris and her friends know is no longer the same. The factions have been disbanded and the factionless have taken over. Their leader Evelyn, Tobias’ mother, has laid down strict and authoritarian rules. Some among the people of the city are rising up against her. They want the restoration of the factions. They are the Allegiant. They want to follow the directions of Edith Prior from the video and see what is outside of the city. Little do they know it will change their lives forever.

When I picked up this book, I was excited out of my mind. I loved the first book, enjoyed the second book, and had high hopes for the third. Unfortunately, I was pretty disappointed. It was okay, and I gobbled it up like I did the others. However, when it was over, I was pretty unsatisfied. If you read the other books in the series, you likely won’t be able to skip this one. However, if you don’t feel compelled to read it, I’d likely skip it. Leave the rest up to your imagination. 2.5 out of 5.
