Barnes and Noble Summary:
This exciting finale to Lauren Oliver's New York Times bestselling Delirium trilogy is a riveting blend of nonstop action and forbidden romance in a dystopian United States.
Now an active member of the resistance, Lena has transformed. The nascent rebellion that was underway inPandemonium has ignited into an all-out revolution in Requiem, and Lena is at the center of the fight.
After rescuing Julian from a death sentence, Lena and her friends fled to the Wilds. But the Wilds are no longer a safe haven. Pockets of rebellion have opened throughout the country, and the government cannot deny the existence of Invalids. Regulators infiltrate the borderlands to stamp out the rebels.
As Lena navigates the increasingly dangerous terrain of the Wilds, her best friend, Hana, lives a safe, loveless life in Portland as the fiancée of the young mayor. Requiem is told from both Lena and Hana's points of view. They 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, Alex, the boy she thought was dead. Sophisticated and wide-ranging, Requiem brings the Delirium trilogy to a thrilling conclusion.
Wow. I need a massage after reading this book... I was gripping it so tightly and as a result my neck is SOOO sore. I love Lauren Oliver... she is freaking unbelievable and if you haven't ever read one of her books you need to remedy this at once! I love everything about this book... I love how it alternates between Hana and Lena's points of view, I love how I hate Hana because of it. I love the Julian- Lena- Alex triangle of emotions. I love how strong and human Lena is. I just love everything. THE ONLY THING that I wish was different was the ending. I wish that there was just a little more of a conclusion... Oliver leaves it a little open ended which makes sense because Lena still has life to live but I was just left wanted a little more at the end of the book.
Do you ever start a sequel and don't quite remember what happened in the book before it? We do... all the time. That's why we LOVE this project started by Amber from Down The Rabbit Hole. It catches you up on the endings and major plot points in the books you just can't remember.
