Divergent book three’s title has been unveiled, and it’s not what anyone expected!
The title of Divergent book three is: Allegiant! The word means “loyal” and “faithful.”
The announcement was made via a book trailer posted on USA Today (watch here). Roth had teased an announcement coming on Thursday, but it looks like they were only waiting for the clock to strike midnight on the east coast.
Interestingly and excitingly, the title is not what anyone was predicting. The trailer even pokes fun at some of the popular theories that were going around.
Unfortunately, Divergent book three’s cover was not unveiled. It looks like they are saving that for a separate announcement. The publisher is looking to build up hype for the cover unveiling by asking fans to tweet using the hashtag #AllegiantCover on Twitter. A teaser image was published with the release date in February and we saw a photo with an orange theme, suggesting the cover would be similar.
UPDATE: The cover is coming in May.
Allegiant will be released October 22, 2013.
The first book in the Divergent trilogy is currently being turned into a film by Summit-Lionsgate. The cast and crew just started shooting in Chicago, IL last week.
