Now an active member of the resistance, Lena has been transformed. The nascent rebellion that was under way in Pandemonium has ignited into an all-out revolution in Requiem, and Lena is at the center of the fight. Of Pandemonium, ALA Booklist noted that “like all successful second volumes, this expands the world and ups the stakes, setting us up for the big finale.”

After rescuing Julian from a death sentence, Lena and her friends fled to the Wilds. But the Wilds are no longer a safe havenpockets of rebellion have opened throughout the country, and the government cannot deny the existence of Invalids. Regulators now infiltrate the borderlands to stamp out the rebels, and as Lena navigates the increasingly dangerous terrain, her best friend, Hana, lives a safe, loveless life in Portland as the fiancée of the young mayor. Requiem is told from both Lena's and Hana’s points of view. The two girls live side by side in a world that divides them until, at last, their stories converge.

With lyrical writing, Lauren Oliver seamlessly interweaves the peril that Lena faces with the inner tumult she experiences after the reappearance of her first love, Alexthe boy she thought was dead. Sophisticated and wide-ranging, Requiem brings the Delirium trilogy to a thrilling conclusion. (HarperCollins)

AHHHHHHH! I love the Delirium series, it's so very good. After the cliffhanger ending in Pandemonium, I can't wait to get back to this story!!! (I LOVE ALEX!)

  1. I am not a fan of this cover but...WHO CARES. I love everything Lauren Oliver writes and it's going to be a tortuous wait to see how it all concludes. Julian, please! ;)

  6. AHHHH! I can't wait! This is definitely my favorite series out right now. I'm going to be sad to see it end.

    I'm not a huge fan of the cover, though...

  7. I love that this is going to be partly from Hana's point of view too. I am curious about her and can't wait to learn more.

    I am expecting this to be heartbreaking, intense and awesome. I can't wait to read it.

  13. I am so excited for this book too! Like Lori, I'm not in love with the cover. It's just kind of "meh". The girl is really pretty, but I wish the covers of these books were more symbolic and less "Oh, look at the pretty girl."

    Great WoW pick!
