‘Allegiant’ Leaks! Veronica Roth asks for ‘No Spoilers’
Because of a shipping error, Divergent Series Book 3, “Allegiant” was released a month earlier on some parts of globe! Some have even posted their copy and the cover page of the book. HarperCollins together with Divergent author, Veronica Roth affirmed the authenticity of the news and the author gave her official statement on this very unfortunate event.
Because of this lapses, Veronica Roth sought for secrecy for those who already have the book to avoid spoilers and not jeopardize the waiting time of all fans who still don’t have a copy. Here’s what she has to say on her Tumblr account:
I found out earlier today that a very small number of readers received finished copies of Allegiant already, instead of on October 22nd, due to a Canadian shipping error that has since been fixed. I’m disappointed, and I’m sure you are too. I personally have been waiting, pretty much since the trilogy began, for the day when the last book would come out and we would all experience it together–you for the first time and me, with the giddy anticipation of an author who finally gets to watch everyone finish the story that has been so dear to me. That’s why I’ve been so secretive for so long! But accidents and errors just happen sometimes.
If you are one of the people who received Allegiant early: I would love it if you wanted to wait to read it until October 22nd alongside your fellow Initiates. However, I can’t blame you if that’s just not going to work for you. I do ask, no matter what you decide, that out of kindness and respect for your fellow Divergent readers and their reading experiences, you do not post spoilers or quotes anywhere. I know I can count on you to preserve the mystery with me– I may be biased, but I think I have the best readers ever.
Everyone else: I think we’re still going to have a great October 22nd (and weeks immediately following). Be very wary of what you read online, and we’ll come out of this just fine.
