First PANDEMONIUM Summary Revealed!

11:39 PM Posted by Bonnie @ A Backwards Story

HarperCollins released its Winter 2012 catalog today.

Why should you care?

The synopsis for PANDEMONIUM is finally here:

Lauren Oliver captivated readers with DELIRIUM, the first book in a thrilling dystopian trilogy in which Lena Haloway dared to fall in love with Alex and escape the cure, the government-mandated procedure that renders a person immune to the disease of love. Lena and Alex staked their lives on leaving their oppressive society, but only Lena broke free.

PANDEMONIUM continues Lena’s gripping story. After escaping from Portland, Maine, Lena makes it to the Wilds and becomes part of an Invalid community, where she transforms herself into a warrior for the resistance. A future without Alex is unimaginable, but Lena pushes forward and fights, both for him and for a world in which love is no longer considered a disease. Swept up in a volatile mix of revolutionaries and counterinsurgents, Lena struggles to survive—and wonders if she may be falling in love again.

Full of danger, forbidden romance, and exquisite writing, Lauren Oliver’s sequel to Delirium races forward at a breathtaking pace and is sure to appeal to fans who crave the high-stakes action of THE HUNGER GAMES and the bittersweet love story of ROMEO AND JULIET.


The only bad news? The Strict on Sale Street Date is currently set for March 6, 2012, not February like we all thought. That’s an extra month of waiting for PANDEMONIUM!

The cover has yet to be revealed, but DELIRIOUSLY FALLING will reveal it to you as soon as it’s available, so keep checking back!

    Oh, goodness. The wait for Pandemonium is going to be a killer. Thanks for sharing the description! :-) (I need to get cracking on a new song now...)

  2. busbedhe-v said...

    Am I reading correctly? Will Pandemonium introduce us to a love triangle? :(
    Or maybe Alex is really gone? :'(

  3. Ella Press said...

    @DJ: Yes, make a new song! We'd love to hear it!

    @busbedhe-v: Don't think that! Alex WILL come back, he has to! *sobs*

    The wait for Pandemonium is killing me, man.

  4. busbedhe-v said...

    @Ella Press: A part of me is certain he'll come back but the thing I don't like about the summary is that it gives me the feeling about an upcoming love triangle and I am not a fan of them.

  5. Marisa said...

    Oh Em Gee!! I don't think I've ever been THIS ANXIOUS for a book release. How am I supposed to survive? March is like soo far away xD

    And Alex *IS* going to be okay. That's just non optional.

    Ah exciting... but what does it mean for Alex? I hope he isn't dead...

  7. Ella Press said...

    @busbedhe-v: Yeah, I'm not a fan of love triangles either, but coming from Lauren, I bet that it's a wonderfully written one (if there even is one in Pandemonium).

    @prettybooks: We ALL hope he isn't dead! *crosses fingers*

    @Vicky: Didn't we all? *swoon*

    Glad I'm not the only one waiting for the return of Alex!

  13. Abby said...

    Alex HAS to be alive, and he HAS to come back! If Lena falls in love with someone else I will cry.

  14. AnnieStarr said...

    I really hope Alex is still alive! If he isn't, I'm totally not gonna read the book. Besides, what kind of a let down would that be?? Lauren Oliver basically has no choice but to let him live!

    i strongly dislike love triangles.
    cant anyone just love one person?
    i sort of dont even want to read the second book
    it might just be better to leave it at the fact that maybe Alex is alive and i'll pretend that he breaks out and finds her :)

    If Alex does not come back I am prepared to issue a protest. She can't kill him off like that and have Lena fall in love with someone else, she just can't!!

    ALEX DOESNT DIE HE COMES BACK WHILE LENA IS MAKIN OUT WITH ANOTHER GUY :P

    Damn. I am 101% sure that the author wouldn't let Alex be gone just like that. I mean, what's the thrill in that? And according to the summary, there WILL be a love-triangle. I think Pandemonium will be one roller coaster book once it's released and I just can't really wait for it!

    Team Alex. <3 ;)

  27. Bribri said...

    Same. A love triangle is just going to ruin everything.

    i don't want to read if lena is going to fall in love with someone else. she needs to go find alex because they belong together!!!

    I just finished reading Delirium, I swear, and I am online reserving Pandemonium at my local library. LOL! If she falls for someone else I will die of depression. I honestly fell for Alex right along with Lena.
