In a 'Pandemonium' Right Now!
Lena and Alex took off for the wilds in the first book but, sadly, only Lena made it over the fences lining the city of Portland. Lena was supposed to have her cure as she had caught the disease- the deleria- love (as they call it in the book)- to put it bluntly but before it can take palce she ran off into the Wilds.
In Pandemonium, the chapters are divided in the 'Now' and 'Then' moments. The Now focus on her present whereas the Then tells us what happened to her after she took off running into the wilds without any sense of where to go.
New characters are introduced in this book. Lena has now joined 'The Resistance' and she is an active part of the movement and is also enrolled in a Brooklyn high school. She's far away from Portland now, with a false identity.
Lena is given a mission- that is to observe the activities of DFA - Deleria Free America. She is on this mission when Scavengers raid the rally DFA set up. Lena has to keep her eye on Julian- Thomas Fineman's son who is the Head of DFA. In doing so, Lena also gets kidnapped along with Julian.
Lena and Julian suffer alot together, and they escape. Lena finds the truth behind her mission, comes in contact with her mother- yes, her mother.
Lena finds new love in this book and that Raven, Tack and the others have her back.
I liked how Julian opened up to the notion of Love. I hated Thomas. I loved the new characters- Raven, Tack; the others.
I don't know what to expect from the third book as this installment was different then what I was expecting. I'll be ready now for my surprise in the third book. (:
P.S. Love the covers. The eyes, especially and the flowers. T_T
