The Second Installment of a Loveless World
The second novel in Lauren Oliver's Delirium trilogy, Pandemonium, will drag you right in. There is no real introduction or review of the first book, so make sure you've read Delirium somewhat recently once you pick it up!
Lena has just escaped the loveless world in which she lives - into the Wilds, and without Alex. The entire book is split between the present, a time where Lena is an undercover member of the Resistance, and several months prior: her first few months in the Wilds. It's not until the end of the book that the two tie together, so just keep pushing through the conclusion, and you'll surely be rewarded!
While Lena is still Lena, she's much more hardened in comparison to the first novel. I have to admit, it is one of my favorite character transformations in my love affair with books. For those of you who haven't read Delirium, make sure to do so before picking this one up. And those of you that have, put your shoes on and run out to get Pandemonium right now. And be prepared for the biggest cliffhanger of your life.
