Library Journal Review

Just a few days after the events of Insurgent, the world Tris has known and believed in is shattered, in part owing to her own actions. A new faction, the Allegiant, has approached her and Tobias, offering them a chance to see what is outside their city. They agree to go, but what they find shatters their worldview even further, as they come to -realize that their lives, and those of generations of their ancestors, may have been nothing more than a social experiment. Once again, Emma Galvin voices Tris, and this time Tobias has a viewpoint, voiced by Aaron Stanford. Galvin's narration contains only the most minor changes among characters, making it difficult to distinguish one from another, especially since many start with the letter "J." Stanford's narration is not any better. VERDICT Even with these weaknesses, the audiobook will be popular with teens and adults wanting to get their hands on the trilogy's conclusion, whatever the format.-Suanne Roush, Seminole, FL (c) Copyright 2013.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 9 Up-Tris and Tobias and their friends and enemies continue their Chicago-area adventures, 200 years in the future, in Roth's trilogy closer (HarperCollins, 2013). Edith Prior's tape blew the lid off the secret history of the factions and how they evolved to be the organizing force in society. Now, one group shouts "Death to the factions!" while the other writes the Allegiant Manifesto, declaring that factions are the way society was meant to be. Divergents like Tris are no longer considered rejects, but instead are declared Genetically Pure. Tobias, once a proud Dauntless leader, now struggles with the knowledge he is Genetically Damaged and a second-class citizen in the eyes of many. The chapters switch points of view between Tris and Tobias as each struggles to come to terms with their respective family histories and their love for each other. Like the previous books, this story involves gun play, deaths, loyalty, forgiveness, romance, and lots of intrigue and double crossing. The powers of faction serums and vaccines, gene manipulation, and specific technologies expand to cover some gaps in the story line, but these leaps of imagination keep things moving along. The author's choice to kill a major character will shock some listeners. Narrator Emma Galvan returns as Tris, and Aaron Stanford voices Tobias with earnest and measured tones that complement Galvan's deliberate style. Listeners will fully believe these teens could outsmart self-centered and power-hungry adults to give society a brighter future. A must where the first books are popular.-Maggie Knapp, Trinity Valley School, Fort Worth, TX (c) Copyright 2014. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Booklist Review

If Divergent (2011) boasted a stark clarity and Insurgent (2012) bordered on the incomprehensible, this trilogy finale falls squarely in the middle: though plenty of fat goes uncut, the plot is both followable and logical. While Roth's strength has never been characterization (side characters continue to be more or less interchangeable), she does, by the brave ending, elicit a long-in-coming and, frankly, well-earned emotional response. Power couple Tris and Tobias, on trial as traitors, manage to escape their dystopic Chicago only to land in the hands of the Bureau, a government agency that is watching the experiment of the Factions unfold. This pulling-back-of-the-curtain and the accompanying fight against genetic damage may be the single most fascinating idea of the entire series, though there isn't much lingering upon it before, once more, Tris and Tobias must judge a new cast of characters as friend or foe between episodes of bickering and kissing. While the prose feels hasty and repetitive, it does turn pages, which is the meter by which the gargantuan fan base will judge it. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: This heir to The Hunger Games is arguably the highest-demand book of the year. Expect total saturation leading up the 2014 movie. Resistance is futile.--Kraus, Daniel Copyright 2010 Booklist

Horn Book Review

In the final installment of Roth's Divergent series, the factions are dismantled and the city is in upheaval. Tris and Tobias set out with a group of rebels to seek answers about the world beyond the fence. Amidst all the deception and betrayal, Roth provides meditations on love, loss, and sacrifice that ponder the complexities of free will versus genetic destiny. (c) Copyright 2014.
