Go back to where it all begin. Before Tris transferred to Dauntless from Abnegation, there was Tobias Eaton. This short tells the story of his test, the circumstances of his choice, and his start in his new faction.

Having read this after finishing the main series, I found it to be quite poignant (as I did with all of the Four-related prequel stories). Even though they’re short, there’s a great deal of backstory and character motivation that comes out here. And since I left Allegiant feeling like it’s as much about Tobias as it is Tris, it was nice to go back and connect where he is at the end with where he was in the beginning. Definitely recommended for fans of the series, especially those who may have struggled with the way it ended.
