Allegiant by Veronica Roth

This review may contain spoilers of previous books in the series.
Summary:(from 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.

Review: This is the third and final book in the Divergent trilogy and I really enjoyed it. I wasn't sure what direction the story would go in after how the last book ended. It was different than what I expected. I liked that there was a lot happening. The plot was well paced but there was also a lot of character development going on. I think that Tris and Tobias both changed a lot over the course of the book. I thought the new plot line introduced in this book was an interesting one but also slightly annoying at times. I am honestly having mixed feelings about how this series ended. There were certain parts I liked. I was happy with the way most of the characters ended up, but there were a few things that should have ended differently. Overall, this is a really great series and I strongly recommend it to anyone who hasn't read it yet.
