Publisher Comments:

This exciting finale to Lauren Oliver's New York Times bestselling Delirium trilogy is a riveting blend of nonstop action and forbidden romance in a dystopian United States.

Now an active member of the resistance, Lena has transformed. The nascent rebellion that was underway 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 infiltrate the borderlands to stamp out the rebels.

As Lena navigates the increasingly dangerous terrain of the Wilds, her best friend, Hana, lives a safe, loveless life in Portland as the fiancée of the young mayor. Requiem is told from both Lena and Hana's points of view. They live side by side in a world that divides them until, at last, their stories converge.

With lyrical writing, Lauren Oliver seamlessly interweaves the peril that Lena faces with the inner tumult she experiences after the reappearance of her first love, Alex, the boy she thought was dead. Sophisticated and wide-ranging, Requiem brings the Delirium trilogy to a thrilling conclusion.

Synopsis:

In book three of the Testing series, the United Commonwealth wants to eliminate the rebel alliance fighting to destroy The Testing for good. Cia is ready to lead the charge, but will her lethal classmates follow her into battle?

Synopsis:

She wants to put an end to the Testing

In a scarred and brutal future, The United Commonwealth teeters on the brink of all-out civil war. The rebel resistance plots against a government that rules with cruelty and cunning. Gifted student and Testing survivor, Cia Vale, vows to fight.

But she can't do it alone.

This is the chance to lead that Cia has trained for - but who will follow? Plunging through layers of danger and deception, Cia must risk the lives of those she loves--and gamble on the loyalty of her lethal classmates.

Who can Cia trust?

The stakes are higher than ever—lives of promise cut short or fulfilled; a future ruled by fear or hope--in the electrifying conclusion to Joelle Charbonneau's epic Testing trilogy. Ready or not…its Graduation Day.

The Final Test is the Deadliest!

This was a hard one to rate. It definitely falls somewhere between a three and a four, but I leaned toward three because I hated the ending THAT MUCH. It was such a cop out, at least as far as I’m concerned.

Overall though, I liked the book. I adore Lena. She’s a badass, and one of my favorite heroines ever, partly because unlike a lot of female YA narrators, she’s no pushover, and she doesn’t frustrate the hell out of me. The decisions she makes are the ones I would make, and so it’s easy to get in her head and see things from her point of view. Of course that can be a double-edged sword because my heart kept breaking right along with hers every time Alex was involved. I loved their last scene together, of course, but every single moment between them, no matter how small, had me both going awwwww and eeep and nooooooooooo all at once.

I feel like I should mention Julian and Lena here but since I was never all that invested in their relationship I don’t have much to say. I like Julian as a character, I think he’s pretty freaking amazing and brave and adorable, but Alex had my heart from day one and that didn’t change with his “death”. I do wish there had been more of Julian in the book of course, because he definitely deserved more closure than he got.

Of course I loved all the action in the book. I’ve come to expect it from this series, and it didn’t disappoint. Naturally there was the one shocker moment towards then end that I never saw coming, although now I feel like I should have, and I actually cried a little, although I didn’t care much about the character involved.

What I didn’t like was basically everything involving Hana. Maybe because I never liked her character from the start, and because I never read her novella, I just found it hard to get invested in her storyline. I felt bad for her, definitely, and it was interesting to be in the head of someone who’s had the cure, but I feel like those chapters were wasted on her POV. If we had to have two narrators I would have preferred it be Alex, or any of the other “invalids”, but I can also understand what Oliver was trying to do by showing us the side of the war from this view point.

So while the final installment isn’t nearly as good as the first two, it was still enjoyable. At least until the last few pages.

When I was handed this book series to read I was extremely sceptical...... however it very quickly became my absolute favorite of all time. Lauren Oliver is a genius.... I cannot wait for March... my heart has ached since the e end of delirium..... I have been very patiently waiting yet the anticipation is beginning to wear me down. IM A DYSTOPIAN SUPERFAN WHO RUNS IN THE WILDS, AND WHO ISNT SCARED TO BE AN INVALID..... come on March Requiem is waaaaaayyyy overdue

Um yes hi I need this book. I promise that in exchange for getting it for free (even if I have to wait until March), I will write a review ten times the length. I'll even throw in a cat. Anything just to get this book, please and thank you.
