REQUIEM is told in alternating chapters from both Lena and Hana’s point of view. What ended up surprising me the most about REQUIEM was that even though the Delirium Trilogy has been Lena’s story, in this final book, it was Hana’s chapter’s that I couldn’t get enough of. Lena’s story continues in the Wilds and focuses on the Rebellion as well as reconciling her feelings for Julian and Alex. Hana’s story, for me at least, was the more gripping of the two girls as it follows her, now Cured, preparing to marry the newly elected Mayor.
Genre: Young Adult
WHEN WE WAKE is a very political book, and, to a lesser degree, a very religious book. Those aren’t necessarily bad things. But when the politics and religion are preachy, it becomes much harder to enjoy the story hiding underneath.
How does an almost 600 page book end up feeling too short? Masterful plotting, harrowing danger, meticulously detailed worldbuilding with a complex history, and truly human characters even when they aren’t actually human.
I was so intrigued by the blurb for THE DIFFERENT GIRL because just from the short description, I had so many questions. What made May different? Why were the four girls on the island? Why are they identical? Unfortunately, after having read the book, I am left with more questions and few answers.
