With the second Divergent movie out, readers can continue Tris Prior’s and Tobias Eaton’s adventures in the final book of the Divergent series, Allegiant.

On Friday, March 20th, 2015, the second Divergent series movie Insurgent is going to be out in theaters everywhere in America, intriguing fans to dive into the plot of the final continuation, Allegiant.

In the dystopian genre, Allegiant is the third and final installment of the Divergent Series, written by Veronica Roth

Following the adventures of Tris Prior and Tobias Eaton, the star-crossed lovers have now snuck outside the mysterious fence, along with the rest of the rebellion”Allegiant” team, escaping the new leader, Evelyn’s reign. With lots of surprises and conflict, this novel definitely has reader’s eyes glued to the words on the page.

Those who have read the previous Divergent books may recognize that like the The Hunger Games: Mockingjay  compared to the other Hunger Games books, Allegiant takes a turn from the intense physical action in the other Divergent books, and leaps into a more mental, emotional, and intellectual diegesis.

Throughout several parts of the story, there is more science and history talk than the usual Divergent action that most fans are familiar with. These scenarios can be considered boring or dull at times, due to all the explaining that needs to be done, since it is the last book.  It also can be a little hard for those reading to follow or comprehend exactly what is being discussed overall.

Regardless of these bumps in the story’s roadmap, when those reading Allegiant are past the boring history/science lessons, the adrenaline that the Divergent Series junkies are accustomed to eventually kick in. With romance that can make any reader’s heart throb, and plot twists flying in from everywhere, this saga creates such an intensity that the human being is o longer reading, they are now in the Allegiant story.

Since this is the conclusion of the series, it can definitely be painful to read, and is known for causing die hard fans to come to tears. Despite the emotions brought on to readers, Allegiant was written in a shocking, but brilliant way for Divergent devotees to conclude the series. Others have also agreed, giving the book a little more than three and a half stars out of five stars on Goodreads. This being said, out of the 440,160 ratings on Goodreads, 28% of the ratings gave the book five stars, and 29% gave four stars.
