Pandemonium (Delirium #2)by Lauren Oliver
Monday, September 29, 2014 07:30 PM
Powell's City of Books on Burnside, Portland, OR
Lauren Oliver, author of Before I Fall and the Delirium trilogy, makes her brilliant adult debut with Rooms (Ecco), a mesmerizing tale of family, ghosts, secrets, and mystery, in which the lives of the living and the dead intersect in shocking, surprising, and moving ways. Rooms is an enticing and imaginative ghost story and a searing family drama that is as haunting as it is resonant.
Synopses & Reviews
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.
"After this second book, fans of Oliver and of dystopian fiction will be clamoring for the final installment of the trilogy." Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)
"From the grief-stricken shell of her former self to a nascent refugee and finally to a full-fledged resistance fighter, Lena's strength and the complexity of her internal struggles will keep readers up at night." Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"This is a romance in the purest of senses, where just the longing for the faintest taste of love is worth the greatest of risks. Like all successful second volumes, this expands the world and ups the stakes, setting us up for the big finale." Booklist
"If...you crave the heart-stopping action of the arena from The Hunger Games combined with a destined-to-be-doomed love story then this sequel is perfect for you!" Seventeen.com
"Following directly on the heels of Delirium, Pandemonium is equally riveting. The underlying theme that love will win out regardless of prohibition is a powerful idea that will speak to teens." School Library Journal
"The gasp-worthy final page sets the stage for a promising conclusion to this trilogy." Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
