Globally bestselling author Veronica Roth returns to the world of Divergent in this revealing short-story epilogue that takes place five years after the stunning events of Allegiant.
As Tobias struggles to understand and move past his fears, the world he once knew has changed beyond recognition. Fringe-dwellers, ex-faction members, Bureau dropouts, and migrants now coexist in the rebuilt streets of Chicago.
It’s a new, better world—one where he isn't sure how to belong. As everyone else seems to move forward, Tobias is still haunted by those who couldn’t. But new connections from old friends help him begin to heal—and mend.
And don't miss The Fates Divide, Veronica Roth's powerful sequel to the bestselling Carve the Mark!

From a dedicated fan of the series..
This was disappointing.. predictable, and disappointing. And as much as I hate the ending of “Allegiant” (which I do, SO much), I thought it was still better than this. I spent the entire time reading this (which was short, by the way) thinking “no, don’t do it, don’t do it”. But you did it anyway. You can’t just put everybody with everybody because it’s convenient, Veronica! I can easily see how you would argue the whole “broken-same, mutual past and moving on together” thing, and I agree, they need to move on, but! It would have been okay if it was anyone, anyone else, not them as an item. It’s so wrong. I mean, you could have taken the time and heart to actually *feel* them as you wrote, and be chivalrous enough to create two new characters, and their new stories, right? But of course, it’s not as convenient now, is it?
It almost feels like “We Can Be Mended” was written, shortly, mindlessly, unfeelingly even, just for you to relive your golden time as the best-selling author of the series, not because you really care about the plot and how your readers, your fans, would feel reading this, I’m sorry, half-baked piece.
I initially gave it 1 star, but then what Christina said about “moving” was (if not the only thing) well written and it stroke me, hence the other star.
It’s sad for me to write this review thinking of all the good old time that I spent on the faction fandom sites.
