'We're big fans of Lauren Oliver and this is the emotionally charged follow-up to last year's futuristic love story DELIRIUM. With echoes of Brave New World, we catch up with young heroine Lena as she attempts to survive in the dangerous Wilds ... Now we just have to wait for the final episode in the trilogy.' -- Bella on PANDEMONIUM 'Thrilling and thought-provoking... Fast paced and consistently poignant, this tale quickly becomes hypnotically addictive. We almost missed our stop on the bus because we were so engrossed. Lena is a strong multi-faceted character and the future society in which she exists genuinely terrifying... A thoughtful, exciting and moving story that reminds us just how important love is. Devour it, then go and give all your friends a big hug.' -- Heat on PANDEMONIUM 'Crackling with tension, Lauren Oliver's follow up to DELIRIUM is as whip smart and addictive as her dystopian debut.' -- Marie Claire on PANDEMONIUM 'Prepare to become completely absorbed.' -- Glamour on PANDEMONIUM 'Oliver is a considerably better writer than the Twilight creator - an adept and occasionally courageous storyteller who can shock and awe with a well-placed twist.' -- Independent on PANDEMONIUM 'Beautifully written in Lauren Oliver's inimitable style.' -- daisychainbookreviews.blogspot.co.uk on PANDEMONIUM 'Oliver writes in such a beautiful way, it's hard to put the book down. 5/5' -- Press Association on PANDEMONIUM
