Description on GoodReads:

   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. 


Contains Spoilers:

   I suppose a fire that burns that bright is not meant to last.
   I never really enjoyed The Hunger Games by Susanne Collins. So when I finished the series and started looking for another series to read my friends recommended Divergent. There was so much hype about it being the next Hunger Games that I just didn't want to give it a try. Normally hype doesn't get to me but for some reason this time it did. Last June I came across a used copy of Divergent for sale and finally decided to give it a try. I was instantly blown away by how phenomenal it was. That sadly wasn't the case for Allegiant. I was disappointed with how Veronica finished the series. I understood why she killed off Tris, but I just didn't like how it all played out. With how the the whole city was an experiment? I'm sorry but I couldn't stand it. My first impression was correct, it was another Hunger Games. I loved the characters and the original idea, Veronica did an astonishing job creating this world. No matter how I felt about the ending I'm glad I read the series.
  You can see Divergent in theatres March 21, 2014.
