“I’m pushing aside the memory of my nightmare,
pushing aside thoughts of Alex,
pushing aside thoughts of Hana and my old school,
like Raven taught me to do.
The old life is dead.
But the old Lena is dead too.
I buried her.
I left her beyond a fence,
behind a wall of smoke and flame.
Lauren Oliver delivers an electrifying follow-up to her acclaimed New York Times bestseller, delirium. This riveting, brilliant novel crackles with the fire of fierce defiance, forbidden romance, and the sparks of a revolution about to ignite.”
I can’t say how much I have been wanting to read this book. So when I had the chance to borrow it from a good friend, I jumped right on it. I never looked back and love this book.
I am going to review this book that best I can without any spoilers. The book picks up right from it left off. The reader follows the main characters Lena and her escape. As she now knows the truth, she is now searching for more answer to her questions. I enjoyed that over all Lena is not the same girl she was. Her eyes are now awakening, her mind is no longer looking at what she see but more of what she feels.
There are introductions to new characters that help Lena on her journey. I like that the reader see her survive and become one on her own. She is much stronger and doesn’t take no as answer. She is put through many trials and tribulations but makes it out with flying colors.
Now the ending. HOLY COW! I mean WOW! I hadn’t known but not that I do, it just makes me want to read the book all over. Fans of Lauren Oliver, you will want to flock over to the book store and demand your copy. I can assure you that once you read this, you will know my feeling of pure joy!
I give it 5 BITES!
