pandemonium

on 5/31/2012

It’s been six months since readers first met 17-year-old Lena Haloway, desperately in love in a world that considers such feelings an infection to be permanently and irrevocably “cured.”This much-anticipated sequel to Delirium (2011) picks up right where the first novel left off, with Lena and Alex’s only partially successful attempt to escape to “the Wilds.” Lena, alone, heartbroken and near death, must reach deep within herself to find the strength and the will to survive. “Step by step—and then, inch by inch,” she is reborn. The story of Lena’s new life as a rebel Invalid, determined to honor the memory of Alex by fighting for a world in which love is no longer considered a capital offense, is told through a series of flashbacks and present-day accounts that will leave readers breathless. The stakes only get higher when Lena realizes she has feelings for someone new. The novel’s success can be attributed to its near pitch-perfect combination of action and suspense, coupled with the subtler but equally gripping evolution of Lena’s character. Read More

Product Overview

The follow-up to "Delirium." After falling in love, Lena and Alex flee their oppressive society where love is outlawed and everyone must receive "the cure"--an operation that makes them immune to the delirium of love--but Lena alone manages to find her way to a community of resistance fighters.

From the Publisher
Annotation The pulse-pounding sequel to DELIRIUM finds Lena living an entirely new life where she is actively fighting the DFA and quietly mourning Alex. The narration races back and forth between Then and Now as Lena's fraught story unfolds. After Lena's escape into the Wilds, left for dead miles from Portland, she is rescued by members of the resistance and nursed back to health. Slowly gaining strength, Lena is trained to become a formidable warrior with the help of Raven and others, eventually ready to be placed as an insurgent in Manhattan. Enter Julian, the son of the DFA's head, who is scheduled to have the surgery shortly. Charged with watching him, Lena instead finds herself kidnapped along with Julian. Intense friendship, budding romance, and unexpected complications are just the tip of the iceberg here. This is the second book in the Delirium trilogy.
