I’m pushing aside the memory of my nightmare,
pushing aside thoughts of Alex,
pushing aside thoughts of Hana and my old school,
like Raven taught me to do.
The old life is dead.
But the old Lena is dead too.
I buried her.
I left her beyond a fence,
behind a wall of smoke and flame.
While waiting for my copy of Pandemonium to arrive I continuously saw reviews that highlighted phrases like "even better than Delirium" and I laughed. Better than Delirium, ha, no such thing. I am elated to announce that I Carole McKenzie, was wrong.

Pandemonium is thrilling, captivating, and everything a sequel should be. Thank you Lauren Oliver for creating a series for me to lose sleep over. Thank you for creating a sequel that is so brilliant I need the next book right now before I lose my mind. Oh my, am I going to lose my mind!

In Pandemonium we follow Lena through then and now. The then being when she crossed over into the Wilds and now being the present. Each chapter goes back and forth and Lauren Oliver knows where to stop and start each new tale in a way that is perfect. Lena's story is powerful, meaningful, and amazing.

The end literally stole my breath away and gave me what felt like a heart attack. This is no little cliffhanger, it is the mother of all cliffhangers. I cried at the end, cried!

I will say no more because if you read Delirium you've probably already read Pandemonium or it's sitting on your bookshelf crying for attention. And if you haven't read Delirium I hope i have convinced you to give it a chance, because this series is not one to skip over.
