Teaser Tuesday: Allegiant by Veronica Roth

allegiantI’m almost finished with the third book in the Divergent trilogy now. I thought the first book, Divergent, was brilliant.  I had a hard time putting it down. The other two, while still good, didn’t quite meet the standard Roth set with that first one. Here is an excerpt from the last book in the series, Allegiant:

“Ahead of us is the Hancock building, and beyond it, Lake Shore Drive, the lazy strip of pavement that I once flew over like a bird. We walk the cracked sidewalk side by side, our clothes smeared with Edward’s blood, now dry.

It hasn’t hit me yet: that Edward, by far the most talented transfer initiate we had, the boy whose blood I cleaned off the dormitory floor, is dead. He’s dead now.”

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

One thought on “Teaser Tuesday: Allegiant by Veronica Roth”

  1. I had the same reaction, book two and three were not as good as Divergent and I would have loved to see more of life in the city. WIth that said, the ending to Allegiant is awesome and Roth deserves an award for the last chapter alone. Enjoy.

Don't be shy! I'd love to hear from you.
