“In the then chapters Lena is finally made it to the Wilds. After barely making it out of Portland and watching Alex get shot. She vowed the last thing that Alex ever said to her and ran. Raven found her. Raven saved her life and told her the mantra for the Wilds. "The past is dead." In the now chapters Lena is part of the Resistance and is stationed watching the Julian Fineman, one of the young ambassadors for the Deliria Free America. After getting kidnapped with Julian she starts liking him more than she ever thought possible. If you liked Delirium then you will like this book.”Rachel H wrote this review Monday, May 20, 2013.

“The sequel to Delirium was about a thousand times better than the original. More action, more change, more character development. The first book was all world-building with not much meat to the story. My only two concerns were why she wasn't constantly looking for her mother, after she fled to the Wilds to find her, and the reappearance of the formerly dead love interest on the last page. Love triangle=boring. Too Matched and Hunger Games and every other dystopian.”Amy W wrote this review Thursday, May 9, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“The second book was WAY better than the first! Thinking Alex is dead, she becomes involved with a "zombie" who hasn't been changed yet. As the book ends she is once again alone and facing the possible death of someone she loves. Lots of action- great read!”Amy C wrote this review Sunday, May 5, 2013.

“Ok here we go..... [spoiler]...[/spoiler]
This book had a little of everything Mystery, Romance, and surprises.
Lena was the same the whole book, I did not see any change. I did not like most of the things that happened, maybe I just liked that it kept me captivated to read more. The ending was the big surprise for me and I couldn't believe it after days ”

“It took me a little while to get into this book and the "then and now" concept but once it started rolling for me it did not disappoint. Ugh, cliffhanger!! ”BlueJ~BlueMidnight wrote this review Tuesday, April 30, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“It took a long time for me to get around to reading the second in this series and I'm not sure why as I absolutely loved Delirium the first in the trilogy. However as the author is so good it didn't take me long to get drawn right into the world that she has created. It's an original idea that she has come up with especially in a world filled with so much young adult dystopia fiction at the moment. Most of it mediocre at best.
The strange thing about the main character, Lena, is that you don't automatically love her but she somehow slowly makes you start to like her and eventually you find yourself rooting for her and really wanting her to come out on top. I really enjoyed the introduction of Julian as a new love interest even though it really suprised me. In a world where love is a disease and the main character had never experienced any kind of love before she met Alex in Delirium I didn't expect the introduction of a new male character. However I liked Julian, possibly more than I liked Alex and I'm intrigued to see where him and Lena go in the final novel.
Storyline-wise, this installment was pretty fast paced and exciting. As I previously mentioned it didn't develop in the direction that I thought it would. I assumed that Alex would somehow miraculously survive and that Lena would go on a dangerous rescue mission to save him or something along those lines. However Alex is just a painful memory for Lena and she believes him dead and gone. This instalment centers more around the Invalids living in the Wilds who take Lena in and she becomes part of the resistance.
Once again this author kept me enthralled and I'm looking forward to finishing up this trilogy. ”
