On July 18, at the San Diego Comic-Con panel for Divergent Roth revealed that Allegiant is from both Tris and Four’s point of view.[9] Talking about this, she said that "I tried repeatedly to write Allegiant in just Tris’s voice, but it didn’t work; her perspective, her way of seeing things, was a little too limited for the story I needed to tell, I wanted to do two things with it: A. let two characters experience different things, and B. let them react differently to the same things, so that I (and eventually, the reader) would get a better sense of the whole story, the whole picture.”[8]

She further said that "I’ve said before that I’ve always seen Four (increasingly, as the series goes on) as a plot-mover alongside Tris, so he was the obvious choice for the second POV (though not the only one I tried). Exploring him and his choices and his assumptions about the world was incredibly interesting to me."[8]


Veronica Roth said that she didn't try to choose titles ending with "-ent" for all three books. Furthermore, she said that "I did not go through other ideas. It was always [Allegiant]", which she defined as "One who is loyal or faithful to a particular cause or person."[10]
