Veronica Roth just announced that Allegiant, the last book of the Divergent trilogy, will be told from the point of view of both Tris and Tobias. The author met with a panel of stars of the upcoming film at Comic-Con in San Diego to discuss the movie and publication of the last book in the series. Fans everywhere are thrilled with the news! This is not the first time that Roth has written from both perspectives. The first two novels, Divergent and Insurgent, are both told from the point of view protagonist Tris Prior, but the author also released Free Four, a recount of chapter 13 of Divergent as seen by Tobias (Four), back in 2012.
It didn’t take long for Veronica Roth’s first novel, Divergent, to become a sensation after it was published by Harper Collins in April 2011. It tells the story of a dystopian future where society is separated into five factions. Each faction values and exemplifies a different trait: Abnegation (selflessness), Amity (peacefulness), Candor (honesty), Dauntless (bravery) and Erudite (intelligence). When 16-year-old Tris Prior must decide to either stay with her original faction, Abnegation, or leave forever, she decides to take a leap of faith (literally!) and switches to Dauntless. New initiates immediately begin training under the teachings of Four, who forms a growing connection with Tris. She is forced to face her biggest fears and surprises herself and everyone else with her strength. As time passes, Tris learns she is not like the other members of her faction, a realization that has serious consequences.
In Insurgent the plot thickens when Tris must fight to take down the corrupted Erudite leader, Jeanine Matthews, who has orchestrated a war to take over all other factions. We can’t wait to find out what Allegiant entails!
