In Requiem, book 3 in the bestselling Delirium trilogy by Lauren Oliver, the final showdown between the Invalids and the Cureds ensues. Who will triumph? Kidzworld has the book review.

The Invalids

Now that Alex has returned alive and well, Lena's heart is torn in two. She knows that she will never love Julian as much as she loves Alex. But now, even though Alex has joined forces with their group of Invalids, he wants nothing to do with Lena. Instead, his steady companion is Coral, a beautiful girl who they found unconscious in the woods. While the love triangle drama between Alex, Julian and Lena reaches an all time high, another loved one from Lena's past returns. The Invalids are planning an invasion, hoping to breach the wall surrounding Portland and take back their homes. Unfortunately, they have no idea how strong the Cureds are.

The Cureds

Inside the wall, Lena's old best friend Hana feels guilty for reporting Lena and Alex's relationship, and ultimately forcing Lena into the Wilds. But now her bad karma is earning her a tough lot in life as the wife of Fred, the new mayor. Fred seemed nice enough at first. But as their wedding day draws near, his dark side begins to surface. Hana wonders what happened to Cassie, Fred's previous wife of five years, and why she suddenly disappeared off the map. Meanwhile, Hana has noticed that her Cure isn't working the way it should. She's still having dreams and experiencing emotions - two things that the Cure is supposed to eliminate. Now that the Invalids are invading, which side will Hana support?

The Bottom Line

Requiem is the final book in Lauren Oliver's Delirium trilogy, a bestselling teen dystopian series. This book explores a new format: an alternating narrative between Lena in the Wilds and Hana in Portland. It's an exciting final installment in this beloved trilogy. While we recommend this book, we suggest you read the first two books in the series first: Delirium and Pandemonium.

Requiem Rating: 4
