Allegiant is the third book in the Divergent Trilogy. For me, Divergent, the first book, was the best out of the series, but Allegiant followed close behind. I really enjoyed Allegiant, although the second book, Insurgent, disappointed me. Allegiant takes place in the future and in this one the Factions have split up and Tris and Tobias are out in the real world, trying to find a new life (read the Divergent review for who Tris and Tobias are and what Factions are in Allegiant). They come across a building where people are watching the city where Tris and Tobias used to live. They learn that their whole life in the city they grew up in was all just an experiment controlled by these people. At first they don’t mind what the officials controlling the experiment were/are doing but then they start to realize that they really had no choice in their lives, that at the end of the day these officials where the ones really making the decisions for them. I won’t tell you what happens after that because it would spoil the surprising, sad ending. I guarantee that if you have read the first two books in the series you want to read Allegiant–and remember, if you read Insurgent and it doesn’t appeal to you, you should still try Allegiant because in my opinion it’s much better. Although it is extremely gripping, Allegiant is for ages 12 and up because there is quite a lot of violence, romance, and some bad language.
