Love, the deadliest of all deadly things.

It kills you when you have it.

And when you don't.

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.

Pandemonium is a poignant, explosive, recklessly romantic and utterly heartbreaking novel. Like Delirium, the first in the compelling trilogy, it will take you to the very edge. That's all you need to know. We'll let Lena do the rest of the talking . . .

About the author (2012)

Lauren Oliver captivated readers with her achingly beautiful first novel, BEFORE I FALL. She followed that up with DELIRIUM and then PANDEMONIUM - the first two books in her compellingly addictive trilogy. The eagerly anticipated final book in the Delirium trilogy, REQUIEM, will publish in Spring 2013.

She is also the author of two novels for young readers, LIESL & PO and THE SPINDLERS, delightful, scary and magical novels that are certain to become modern classics of children's writing. A graduate of the University of Chicago and NYU's MFA program, she lives in Brooklyn, New York.
