Requiem: Delirium, Book Three

It hasn’t been very long since the heart-racing conclusion to PANDEMONIUM, the second book in the Delirium trilogy. REQUIEM opens up with Lena in the Wilds with her group of Invalids with Julian, the son of the late leader of Deliria Free America. Before they know it, government regulators are going to make their already hard lives even tougher by fighting back more ferociously against the rebellion.

"The entire Delirium series is, without a doubt, obsession worthy. The characters practically reach out and drag the reader into their story."

What’s wicked cool about this addition to the series --- compared to the first two books --- is that it is told from both Lena and her friend Hana’s point of view. Since Lena’s escape to the Wilds, Hana has been paired with Fred Hargrove, the soon-to-be mayor and a proud supporter of The Cure. Between going to fancy dinners and getting fit for a wedding dress, Hana still manages to keep an open eye. What really happened to Fred’s last wife? Where’s Lena now? These questions drive Hana’s storyline into one that equally matches her best friend’s.

The entire Delirium series is, without a doubt, obsession worthy. The characters practically reach out and drag the reader into their story. They rub your face in their world and demand that you listen to what they say while shoving their way into your mind and making you think.

I am more than guilty of going all fangirl over this book and the rest of the series. The squeaking, the crushing on fictional boys, the online chats with other readers…it’s insane. I was left with a major case of the feels and smiling like a fan-crazy fool after reading REQUIEM, and I know that you will, too!
