Leaving Alex behind was the hardest thing she ever had to do. She was not sure how she could go on without him and indeed she almost doesn't, more then willing to join him in death when her first few days in the wilds leave her starved, exhausted and on the very brink of death. However it is Raven who finds her, Raven who saves her, and Raven who gives her a new life.
She is starting again, in a new school within the protected boundaries of the city, only this time she is starting as someone else, the procedural mark on her neck to prove it. She is the new cured version of herself and she is on a mission. With the demonstration in the city rumoured to be hijacked by invalids, scavengers, Lena is forced to fight to protect all that she believes in.
Pandemonium and chaos ensue as lives are ripped apart. Hardships are born to those on both sides of the fence and despite best intentions, someone is going to get hurt. A story that flips from one side of the fence to the other, a telling of what is happening now, and what went on then. An absorbing and exciting follow-up to Delirium.
