Annotation 4

The third and final book in Lauren Oliver’s powerful New York Times bestselling trilogy about forbidden love, revolution, and the power to choose.

Now an active member of the resistance, Lena has transformed. The nascent rebellion has ignited into an all-out revolution, 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. They live side by side in a world that divides them until, at last, their stories converge.

Booklist Reviews 2012 November #1
Following Delirium (2011) and Pandemonium (2012), this trilogy ender changes things up by splitting the narrative into two first-person perspectives: Lena, who continues to fight for freedom with the Invalids in the Wilds, and Hana, Lena's old best friend, who was cured of amor deliria nervosa (aka love) and is closing in on her arranged marriage to the city's rotten new mayor. Lena's story grinds through the motions a bit, with a somewhat forced love triangle (or square?) alternating with various resistance maneuvers starring our band of scrappy heroes. Hana's story line, though, is a winner, bringing back to the fore what was so inspired about the first volume—the idea that longing is in itself something important to long for. This is one of the premier preoccupations of paranormal romance, and no one has distilled it as cannily as Oliver. The happy/angry, wealthy/poor balance of both plotlines is satisfying, as is their final collision. And is there a theme more perfect for YA readers than choosing what you want from life rather than being told what to do? HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: This hugely successful trilogy should go out with a sizable bang, including advertising, appearances, a mobile campaign, and plenty of good old-fashioned chatter.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2013 Fall
In the final book in the trilogy (Delirium; Pandemonium), Lena and her friends make the dangerous trek north to the Wilds. Back in Portland, Hana prepares for her wedding in the polished but empty society of the "cured." Tension builds as Oliver drives the two narratives inexorably toward both the climactic battle and a dramatic meeting of the two girls.

Horn Book Magazine Reviews 2013 #2
In the final book in the trilogy (Delirium, rev. 3/11; Pandemonium, rev. 3/12), fighting between the resistance and the regulators escalates to the brink of war. Within the walled cities, officials consolidate power over the "cured" population with even greater restrictions. Outside in the Wilds, the resistance builds among those who escaped the cure, the procedure that prevents amor deliria nervosa: love. Oliver deftly portrays both worlds through the parallel stories of Lena and her best friend, Hana. Struggling for food and shelter and hiding from the deadly regulators, Lena and her friends make the dangerous trek north to join with other refugees in the sharply drawn setting of the Wilds. Lena also wrestles with her feelings for her first, passionate love, Alex, miraculously returned yet deeply damaged, and for gentle, patient Julian, now at her side. Back in Portland, Hana prepares for her wedding to soon-to-be-mayor Fred Hargrove in the polished but empty society of the cured. Hana worries that the cure hasn't worked perfectly for her; her feelings are "not eradicated completely...but like shadows," and she cannot forget her worst memory -- that she betrayed Lena and Alex. Tension builds as Oliver drives both narratives inexorably toward both the climactic battle and a dramatic meeting of the two girls. Fans of the trilogy will be rewarded. lauren adams

Kirkus Reviews 2013 January #1
Fraught with high-stakes action and gripping emotion, the final chapters of Lena Haloway's journey will have readers breathlessly turning the pages. But it is not Lena's story alone this time around. Her story alternates with that of Hana, Lena's "cured" best friend, lending depth and intrigue to the novel through the latter's firsthand account of life in a world vaccinated against the destructive powers of love. Hana struggles to come to terms with both her role in Lena's disappearance and her own upcoming marriage to a powerful and increasingly frightening young man. Having fled to the Wilds with a band of resistance fighters that includes the only two men she's ever loved, Lena is faced with struggles of her own. Now that the government can no longer deny the existence of the Invalids, revolution is inevitable, and Lena must reconcile her passion for the rebel cause with her deeply conflicted heart if she hopes to survive. A soldier, a lover, a cousin and a friend, Lena is a rich and achingly human heroine whose strength and vulnerability will earn her a permanent place in readers' hearts. Before starting, readers should turn off their cellphones and wipe their schedules clean, because once they open the book, they won't be able to stop. A dystopian tour de force.

LJ Express Reviews
In a world where love is criminal, how hard would you fight to resist becoming an emotional cipher? In Delirium (2011), Lena made the choice to leave her oppressive community, escaping to the Wilds with her true love, Alex. If she had not, like all of her peers, she would have undergone inoculation for delirium nervosa, the disease of love, which is to be guarded against at all costs. As this final book in the series- begins, Lena and Alex are together in the fight, but their love bond has been broken by the strain of time and distance and the presence of Julian, an important new recruit who owes his life to Lena. Oliver alternates this triangle with the story of Hana, Lena's friend from the first book, who underwent the procedure and is now preparing for her wedding to an up-and-coming politician. Of the recent dystopias featuring loveless societies (think Ally Condie's Matched and Veronica Roth'sDivergent), this is my favorite, equal parts action and emotional truth. A satisfying conclusion.

VOYA Reviews 2013 June
In this final book of the Delirium trilogy, Lena's first love, Alex, is alive after surviving a gunshot wound and months of imprisonment, and her new love, Julian, leaves behind his life in the city to be with her. Despite the awkward tension between them, the three must work together with the Resistance movement to stay alive in the Wilds amid bombs and patrols of regulators. When Lena discovers an impending attack on an Invalid refugee camp, the Resistance is thrown into full-scale war. Meanwhile, Hana Tate prepares for her wedding to the seemingly perfect Fred Hargrove. Fred, about to be installed as Mayor of Portland, expects unyielding support from his pair. Recently cured, Hana knows her role, yet she continues to dwell on memories of her friendship with Lena. As Fred speaks of his plans for the city, Hana wonders about his first pair and her questions lead to sinister answers at the same time that the war arrives in Portland. As walls are torn down and secrets exposed, will the dreaded amor deliria nervosa prove to be the cause of everyone's suffering or the one thing that can save them all For a story about passion and conviction, there is little of either. With Lena distancing herself from both Alex and Julian, Oliver never grapples with the messiness of the love triangle, propelling the characters into a battle over love without examining their motives. Hana emerges as the more interesting protagonist for her apparent resistance to the cure. For readers who care, Oliver's Delirium Stories, published separately, may offer the insight that is lacking here.—Joanna Lima 3Q 4P S Copyright 2011 Voya Reviews.
