Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver

ISBN: 9780061978067
Publisher: Harper Teen
Pages: 375

Pandemonium continues Lena’s gripping story. After escaping from Portland, Maine, Lena makes it to the Wilds and becomes part of an Invalid community, where she transforms herself into a warrior for the resistance. A future without Alex is unimaginable, but Lena pushes forward and fights, both for him and for a world in which love is no longer considered a disease. Swept up in a volatile mix of revolutionaries and counterinsurgents, Lena struggles to survive - and wonders if she may be falling in love again. 

I thoroughly enjoyed reading my ARC copy of Pandemonium! Pandemonium was as beautifully written as Delirium (if not more!). This book picks up where the previous one left off, but this time instead of quotes from The Book Of Shh the chapters are simply topped with Now and Then, which is much more befitting for this part of Lena's journey. My favourite characters were Blue and Lena. Blue because of her likeness to Grace from Delirium, as well as her sweet nature, and Lena because of her ongoing courage and determination to not only carry on for Alex but also to find her mother. Also, I really like the cover and think that it suits the book within.
