We Can Be Mended
“We Can Be Mended is a short-story epilogue that focuses on Four and takes place five years after Allegiant, the conclusion of the Divergent series.”
This was a very moving, short piece by Veronica Roth. I was eager to get my hands on it once I heard of its existence. (It was the deciding factor on whether I would pre-order Carve the Mark or not). It was worth forking over my money early. To be honest, Allegiant left me devastated. The loss of Tris was awful because of those she left behind. I am satisfied with the conclusion of this story because it brings together two very important characters from the Divergent series in a way that is steady and worthwhile. The coming together of these characters who previously lost so much before was very fitting and a wonderful way to mend their pains. I definitely recommend those who loved the Divergent series to get a hold of this short story/epilogue and gain a bit more closure for the series.
