Allegiant (Divergent Series #3) (Hardcover)
Title: Divergent Series
I'm a huge fan of dystopian books and series, from 1984 to The Hunger Games. But no Other story has made me laugh, cry, stare open-mouthed at a single sentence, mull over a thought-provoking concept, or learn about the nature of choices, love, justice, loss, prejudice, honesty- in short, humanity- more than in the Divergent series.
Besides being phenomenally gripping and action packed (I finished the first book in one late-night sitting), it is also deeply thoughtful and incredibly wise. This is a series you actually want your kids to read. Even further, this is a series that people of ALL ages can read- to enjoy and to learn a little something of life.

The explosive conclusion to Veronica Roth's #1 New York Times bestselling Divergent trilogy reveals the secrets of the dystopian world that captivated millions of readers and film fans in Divergent and Insurgent.
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?
Told from a riveting dual perspective, this third installment in the series follows Tris and Tobias as they battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and their selves—while facing impossible choices of courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.
And don't miss The Fates Divide, Veronica Roth's powerful sequel to the bestselling Carve the Mark!
“Roth shakes up her storytelling (and will do the same to some readers) in this highly anticipated, largely satisfying wrap-up to the Divergent trilogy.”
“Roth’s plotting is...intelligent and complex. Dangers, suspicion, and tension lurk around every corner, and the chemistry between Tris and Tobias remains heart-poundingly real. This final installment will capture and hold attention until the divisive final battle has been waged.”
“The tragic conclusion, although shocking, is thematically consistent; the bittersweet epilogue offers a poignant hope.”
“A surprise ending that is gutsier and much less predictable than the rest of the series would lead one to expect.”
“The plot is believably complex, and Roth makes the wise decision in this last installment to reveal the secrets early on and let the focus fall on her characters as they grapple with this new reality, the choices that face them, and the repercussions of their actions.”
“In the end, this is a world replete with loss, and the heroes must suffer their own in a twist that will break the hearts of many readers but stays true to the merciless dystopia that Roth has created.”
