Ashley's Review

They have tried to squeeze us out, to stamp us into the past.

But we are still here.

And there are more of us every day.

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.

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 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.

Maybe we are driven crazy by our feelings.

Maybe love is a disease, and we would be better off without it.

But we have chosen a different road.

And in the end, that is the point of escaping the cure: We are free to choose.

We are even free to choose the wrong thing.

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.

Why?: This is the third book in the Delirium trilogy. I enjoyed the second book, Pandemonium, even more than the first. Im hoping this one is even better.

Expectations: As the third book in a dystopian trilogy, I'm expecting a huge Finale. Maybe an epic war? Maybe a one-on-one confrontation? Maybe an internal realization? Whatever it ends up being, I want a good ending.

Judging a Book by its Cover: I'm not a huge fan of these covers. They are too similar. The color differences aren't even that much. There is a fierceness I'm the eyes that I do like, though.
