Teaser Tuesday 10/22 & Allegiant by Veronica Roth

Allegiant (Divergent #3) by Veronica Roth

One choice will define you.

What if your whole world was a lie?
What if a single revelation—like a single choice—changed everything?
What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected?

The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered—fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.

But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and of herself—while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.

Told from a riveting dual perspective, Allegiant, by #1 New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth, brings the Divergent series to a powerful conclusion while revealing the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of readers in Divergent and Insurgent.

Review and Teaser!!!!

I will not reveal anything until November when the Divergent fans have had a chance to read (and be angry) Allegiant. The ending is way off base to what I thought and would have wanted to happen. It and the whole series deserve the upmost praise for the world that has captured this nations attention. Definitely a 5 star read!!! Now for the teaser:

He bends over to untie his shoes. "So, have you been ostracized from your little crowd of devotees?"
  "No," I say automatically. Then I add, Maybe. But they aren't my devotees."
  "Please. They are like the Cult of Four."
I can't help but laugh. "Jealous? Wish you had a Cult of Psychopaths to call your very own?"
One of his eyes twitched up. "If I was a psychopath, I would have killed you in your sleep by now."
  "And added my eyeballs to your eyeball collection, no doubt."

Peter laughs too, and I realize that I am exchanging jokes and conversation with the initiate who stabbed Edward in the eye and tried to kill my girlfriend—if she's still that. But then, he's also the Dauntless who helped us end the attack simulation and saved Tris from a horrible death. I am not sure which actions should weigh more heavenly in my mind. Maybe I should forget them all, let him begin again.
