Allegiant: Review


One choice will define you.

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.


It's official. This book is the ruin of my soul.

Okay, safe things first. I can't believe this book is more action-packed than the last book. Guess Veronica Roth is a woman full of surprises. The plot just keeps getting crazier and crazier. I should've prepare myself better before I actually pick up this book because Allegiant left me stunned for hours after I read the book (believe me, I still can't believe I actually read Allegiant). This book is way more complex than Divergent and Insurgent. I have only one word for the plot: Brilliant.

Emotions are very intense in this book. Allegiant shows us hidden sides from characters that we thought we're so familiar with. It's just... overwhelming that Veronica Roth can put so many emotions and events in one single book. This book is about discovery, sacrifice and understanding. It shows the deepest part of humanity itself.

Now here's the... not so safe stuff. I will try to keep it as spoiler-free as possible. But I'm deep in sorrow and anger right now I'm not sure if I can keep myself together.

What's the not safe part? The ending. Because it actually shocks me dumb. Not that I'm not entirely expecting this happening, but I just can't process it in my mind. Now I completely and freaking understand one of the hidden reasons of Veronica Roth writing this book in dual point of view! Veronica Roth you are so brutal! You can't just end it like that. Even though the characters have eventually found their peace, I'm still in a mourning state and I'm so sad and angry right now I can't even concentrate on my favorite class today. The ending is very beautiful, don't get me wrong. But it's just as heartbreaking and soul-crushing.

(Warning: emotional breakdown below)

I'm at a loss right now.

There's no going back.

Because this is the last book of Divergent trilogy.

And there will always be a damaged spot in my soul.

I just want to cry so badly but that will make me look crazy in front of people that don't understand what we're going through right now. I have to stop myself from rolling across the bed and trying to tear my hair from my head and punch anything nearby and stomp my foot and throw my copy across the room.

Nothing has me lost control like that before. Not. Even. Clockwork. Princess.

Veronica Roth is as brutal as she's a genius.

Damn it.

(End of emotional breakdown... for now)

Every dystopian fan should read these series. Although when it comes to Allegiant, you have to prepare yourself before diving for it.

Rating: 9.5/10
