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.

Main Idea: All in all, I would definitely recommend reading this book. While there is not much Alex, at all… which is a total bummer, it is still a fast-paced, action packed read definitely worth your time!

Hmm… well, first of all, this book was NOT what I was expecting. I’m not really sure what I was expecting, but it wasn’t that.

However, I did really enjoy this book, hence the four star rating. I am all about a book with action and fast pacing, and save the first 50-75 pages, this book totally had that. I also loved the changing timelines aspect of this book- the way it switched from then and now. However, the “then” part always bored me a bit. I liked the “now” part much better!

A new person was also introduced, Julian. Although, I can’t tell you how he fit into the story. That would be a spoiler… But the adventures she and Julian find themselves in were definitely very exciting!

For the most part, I saw all the major plot twists coming as most people have expressed which was kind of a bummer. There were a few smaller ones that I didn’t see coming though, so those were always nice surprises! 

Thanks for reading!!
