Additional Details

Sequel to: Delirium.

After falling in love, Lena and Alex flee their oppressive society where love is outlawed and everyone must receive "the cure"--an operation that makes them immune to the delirium of love--but Lena alone manages to find her way to a community of resistance fighters, and although she is bereft without the boy she loves, her struggles seem to be leading her toward a new love.

The is so great I love it so much but i would like if alex was in it

Fair (but I'm not the intended audience)

I read the first book of this trilogy when it first came out as part of my book club. When I got to the end, and not realizing that it WAS a trilogy, I thought, "Where's the rest? Lena has only just reached the point of making a decision... and what happens NEXT is the real story!"

So... finally I have gotten around to what happens next... and I'm a little underwhelmed. It's not bad, by any stretch. I think the problem for me is that she is in a middle ground where she is beginning to find herself, but is still largely at the mercy of forces (and people) outside of her control. Not that there aren't moments when she is making her own decisions, but she is mostly still young and new in the place where she is.

I'm just about to start the third book, and hoping that her leadership will step up even more. But overall, reading these as a 40-something (which, I readily admit, is NOT the primary or intended audience!), I'm looking for a little bit more.

romance troubles

Love triangle. She has romance troubles. Cliff hanger. Don't like it.


Great book!

Great Read!!!

This book is awesome!!! There is a cliffhanger ending, so I can't wait for the last book!!!

Loved it!!!!!!!!

This book is just amazing! I recommend it!!! The last book in the trilogy comes out spring 2013! It's called requiem !


This is an amazing series. Clifhanger ending! Cant wait for the third.

Take Two

Love is a curse, which everyone gets a cure for when they reach age 16. Alex, like her Mother before her has become ‘infected’ and has fallen in love, thus must flee and live as a refugee. Those ‘cured’ are detached from passion, but also from sympathy. She hooks up with one of the leaders of the opposition, which is called DFA or Delirium Free America. A survival story, until a surprise ending tells the reader a third book is next and a love triangle is now front and center.

Loved it!

This is a great sequel. Lena becomes such a stronger and take-charge person in this book. The romance in this book is also amazing and you get to see more of rebelliousness in this book. There is always action and has so twists. I loved it!


Great book. I would recommend it to my friends, of course it was more love then i preferred but hey. its a love book what can i do about it
