The final book in Roth's trilogy was released today.
“Allegiant,” the much-anticipated third and final installment of Veronica Roth’s “Divergent” trilogy, arrives in stores today.
As we noted in an earlier article, Roth’s novel was already topping the advance sales numbers from a month before the release of “Mockingjay,” the third book in Suzanne Collins’ “Hunger Games” trilogy. Now “Allegiant” is the top-selling book on Amazon and is number two on Barnes & Noble.
Last night, Roth’s website posted a video of the author reading the first chapter of the book at midnight. Meanwhile, various bookstores planned release parties, with shops from all over the country telling Publishers Weekly they were scheduling events. Some locations went above and beyond, with St. Paul bookstore Red Balloon Bookshop planning on offering tattoos and tests to see what “faction” partygoers fit into (a plot point in Roth’s books) for their event.
