Annotation 1 While Lena navigates the increasingly dangerous Wilds, her best friend, Hana, lives a safe, loveless life in Portland.

Annotation 2 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.

Horn Book Magazine Reviews 2013 #4
Narrator Drew again excels in this final volume of Oliver's dystopian trilogy. Perspectives alternate between Lena, who joins the Resistance movement to avoid being cured of love (perceived as a disease in her society), and Hana, Lena's former best friend, who stays behind and is "matched" with the future mayor. Drew adeptly differentiates between the two girls, sustaining the same gritty, urgent tones previously established for Lena and introducing a polished lilt for Hana, now living a pampered life. The love triangle between Lena, Alex, and Julian remains critical -- and perfectly performed; a confrontation between Lena and Alex is tragic without being melodramatic. But Requiem feels in some ways like a poignant love letter to the former best friends' relationship, and Drew is pitch-perfect in these quiet moments. Lena's closing soliloquy, however, brims with passion. allison e. cole

SLJ Reviews 2013 July

Gr 9 Up —Oliver's final novel (HarperCollins, 2013) in the "Delirium" trilogy uses alternating chapters— Lena and Hana—to run parallel story lines between opposite worlds until the two literally collide in a brilliantly crafted ending. In 21 days, Hana, Lena's childhood best friend, is to marry Fred Hargrove, a secretive, sadistic man whose political platform to restore order got him elected mayor. Hana harbors a dark secret of deceit and betrayal. Three days have passed since Lena, Julian, and a renegade band of Invalids escaped the regulators (and certain death) and returned to the Wilds, which is no longer a safe haven since Hargrove's election. The unexpected reappearance of Alex, who Lena never stopped loving, muddles her feelings for Julian in this complicated love triangle. Determined in their quest to change the future, they join the Resistance. Sarah Drew's narration is fantastic, vividly capturing every human emotion: venomous hatred, whooping joy, flattened resignation, gut-wrenching loss, and wistful love. This harrowing tale of love in all its forms—especially the love of freedom of choice, be it right or wrong—is a riveting page-turner. Oliver saved the best for last—Cheryl Preisendorfer, Twinsburg City Schools, OH
