Finished October 27
Allegiant by Veronica Roth

This is the third and final book in the trilogy that started with Divergent and continued with Insurgent. With the factions disbanded, a leader has taken control of the city who is forcing people to work together under factionless control, but not allowing anyone to leave to see if the information they have about the Outside world is true. Tris is scheduled for a trial about her behaviour, as are many others, including her brother Caleb, who betrayed her, and Four's father Marcus who led the city to war. A new group is forming that calls themselves the Allegiant and wants to fulfill the instructions they've been told to go out to assist the outside world, and Tris is drafted into this group following her trial. Only a small number of people will go on this first foray into the unknown, while another group will work to rebel from within the city.
Once Tris and her group make it outside, she finds that the outside world is completely different than she expected, and learns things about people she knows that change her whole world.
As Tris struggles with her reactions to this knowledge, the others of her group undergo their own struggles as they try to figure out what comes next for them, and what they want for their city. An unexpected but satisfying end to the series.
