Don’t forget that Veronica Roth’s ‘Allegiant’ tour is quickly approaching in October! If you haven’t bought your tickets yet, You should do so soon! We will be at the San Francisco event and hope to meet some of you there! In case you need it, The info on the tour and to buy tickets is posted below!
So, every so often an Allegiant “spoiler” will pop up on Tumblr or on Twitter and I get a lot of frantic questions about it. It’s kind of tough to answer those questions, and here’s why:
Reader: “Is it true you said Tobias doesn’t die in the third book? I saw it on Tumblr!”
Me: “It is not true that I said that. I never said anything about who dies or who doesn’t die.”
Reader: “Ahh! This must mean that he DOES die!”
Me: “No, it doesn’t!”
Reader: “So you’re saying he doesn’t?! I am so relieved!”
Me: “I am not saying that either! All I’m saying is that I didn’t say that thing that Tumblr said I said.”
Reader: “Wait, what?”
And so on.
I love that so many people are so concerned about what happens in book 3, because it means that you care, and that is awesome. I am lucky to have readers who want to throttle me for answers, really. I’m just trying to find a way to clarify things without alarming anyone with the pesky limitations of the English language, so here are the things I have actually said about Allegiant:
-It contains both Tris and Tobias’s POVs (points of view), alternating by chapter. (More on that here.)
-It is slightly longer than Divergent and Insurgent
-In it, you will find out what’s outside the fence
…and I’m pretty sure that’s it? And honestly, it’s pretty much all I will say before it comes out, because I want everyone to have a clean slate when they crack it open. Or as clean a slate as possible.
I feel like we need a word for “I did not say [insertspoilerhere] but I’m not saying it’s not true and I’m not saying it is true, I’m just saying that I didn’t say it.”
Maybe it can be…shenanigans?
Reader: “Veronica, did you say THIS?”
Reader: “Ah, that clears it up.”
I’m going with it.
In other news, I am REALLY enjoying reading some of your theories about what’s going to happen. We will see if you are right…on October 22nd.
Or whenever you get around to reading it. It’s cool. 68 days left!
I love her… and now we know… don’t believe every rumour you hear… there are often SHENANIGANS!!!
Yesterday we got a look at the ‘Allegiant’ covers being sent to the printer and today we get to read the official synopsis via Amazon!
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.
