captivated readers with Delirium, the first book in a thrilling
dystopian trilogy in which Lena Haloway dared to fall in love with Alex
and escape the cure, the government-mandated procedure that renders a
person immune to the disease of love. Lena and Alex staked their lives
on leaving their oppressive society, but only Lena broke free.
Pandemonium continues Lena’s gripping story. After escaping from
Portland, Maine, Lena makes it to the Wilds and becomes part of an
Invalid community, where she transforms herself into a warrior for the
resistance. A future without Alex is unimaginable, but Lena pushes
forward and fights, both for him and for a world in which love is no
longer considered a disease. Swept up in a volatile mix of
revolutionaries and counterinsurgents, Lena struggles to survive—and
wonders if she may be falling in love again.
Full of danger, forbidden romance, and exquisite writing, Lauren
Oliver’s sequel to Delirium races forward at a breathtaking pace and is
sure to appeal to fans who crave the high-stakes action of The Hunger
Games and the bittersweet love story of Romeo & Juliet.
If you've seen my review of Delirium (read it here), you know I was so close to crying at the end. Such a heartbreaker. It wrecked me for other books the way Forbidden and Shatter Me wrecked me. I bought the new cover version of Delirium, read the excerpt for Pandemonium, and wanted to flail like only The Muppets could. And I adore the new covers. Gorgeous.
But is anyone else scared that this book will end and we'll all end up sobbing and screaming at the ending, unable to wait for 2013 for Requiem to come out?
