4 out of 5 stars ****
The dystopian trilogy of Divergent concludes with Allegiant, the sequel to Insurgent. The factions in this world unravel while chaos blossoms in the human qualities necessary for survival. Families are torn, heroes and heroines emerge out of tentative trust, and sacrifice becomes commonplace as the elusive truth becomes known; but not by all, and not all at once.
Veronica Roth keeps the reader interested along daring episodes of life and death chapters. Somehow, a love story exists on a thread sewn throughout the trilogy, and the climactic ending hinges on this relationship. The yearning to be normal is also a common thread throughout Allegiant and this bonds many of the characters who change their allegiances because of it.
