Reseña del editor
Lauren Oliver's thrilling second novel in the powerful DELIRIUM trilogy! Lena joins the resistance effort against the oppressive government and fights for freedom.
After escaping from Portland, Lena makes it to the Wilds and becomes part of an Invalid community. Weak and grieving for Alex, Lena fights to survive. And then she fights her oppressors.
As the viewpoint shifts between Lena's time in the Wilds and the present day, which is set in Brooklyn, Lena transforms into a warrior for the resistance. In New York City, the grass-roots movement for a Deliria-Free America (the DFA) is gathering strength, and its leader, Thomas Fineman, recruits more supporters by the day. His son Julian--as-yet uncured--heads up the DFA's youth organization. Lena is tasked with blending into the DFA's rallies; she seems to be a supporter yet she is really a spy.
Here, Lauren Oliver tells an epic story, bumping Lena out into the world and into the resistance movement. This is a sophisticated, wide-ranging novel that explores the large issues of society, government, and resistance, and of course, there is romance.
