Allegiant, published in 2013, is the third book in the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth. The first two books in the series are titled Divergent and Insurgent. The series has been highly acclaimed and is well-regarded in the Young Adult genre. It received a Goodreads Choice Award in the category of Best Young Adult Fantasy and Science Fiction in 2013. The novel can be distinguished from other fantasy/science fiction young adult novels by its complex commentary on genetic manipulation and the possible future of science. Many similar series, like the Hunger Games trilogy, do not possess a similar social commentary.
