Allegiant by Veronica Roth

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 was written in dual POV and I like multiple POV, but the voices sounded to similar. It does make sense why the author wrote the book this way. It also contains some Christian aspects to the book dealing with sacrifice and forgiveness. What I liked about this one was getting to read about things from Tobias point. The whole series was mostly about Tris but I would have liked if all of the books were dual POV. I would love to read Divergent from Tobias' point. I felt really bad for Tobias in this book though he was a little weak. I think out of the whole trilogy I think Insurgent was the best. In this book the plot dropped a lot. 

I stayed up half of Saturday night and started reading this book from the crack of dawn until Sunday afternoon. I was too anxious to see what was going to happen in the end. My reaction to the ending was this: NOOOOOOOOOO! I remember shortly after the book was released the readers and fans were getting crazy, and now I see why, but they didn't have the right to attack the author all over twitter. I didn't like the ending of this book. I'm not going to write about the ending for people who haven't read the book, but I won't express my feelings. Hopefully those of you who really liked the series enjoy it.
