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. 
That ending was unexpected, did not see it coming. I even re-read it another time, to make sure that I was reading it right. I had feeling that someone was going to die, it wouldn’t be realistic if someone didn’t. But did it have to be Tris? Besides Tobias and Cristina, she was my favorite character in the series. However, it would be out of character if Tris didn’t go in, in the place of her brother. Despite what he done, how he betrayed her, she loved him. It’s why she took his place. Tris’s death did make the series ending bit realistic. So far it has been only dystopian series that did that. Killed the main character. To me, she died a hero. I would never be able to do what she done. That took a lot of courage. 

I loved that this book was from Tris and Tobias point of view. I always wondered what he was thinking, how he was feeling about everything. Allegiant, I learned so much more about him. It felt like I could connect with him more. I felt sad for him when Tris was killed. I wanted to pull him into my arms and hold him. It’s what he has been afraid of so many times, but then he didn’t consider that it would happen. I think when it did, he refused to believe it, at least at first. Just when him and Tris finally got their relationship back to where it was, she dies. I can’t even begin to imagine how that must felt like. I was glad that at least he had Christina by his side. 

While reading Allegiant, I gone through so many emotions: Anger, Fear, Happiness, Annoyance, Sadness. The last few chapters of book I had a feeling that someone was going to happen, but I did not expect that. Allegiant had quite few of unexpected twists through the book. I loved that there was no love triangle in here. I do enjoy those but it’s nice to read something different. I’m sad that they didn’t have a happy ending together. 

As sad as I am it’s over, I loved every minute of it. It’s a series I am going to miss. It’s a series I see myself rereading in the future. If you love fantasy, adventure. Pick up this series today. Veronica Roth has an amazing talent.

I couldn't believe the ending either! But it was so like Tris to sacrifice herself, I just couldn't believe she died. Between her and Uriah dying I was crying so hard. And I went through all the same emotions too! And I'm glad there wasn't a love triangle - you're right it's nice to read something different
