Review: It's the end. I have been whole-heartedly dedicated to this series for the past two and a half years. I pre-ordered Pandemonium and Requiem. I died at the end of the books because of cliffhangers and I waited out the long year between each book. When a series that you are this attached to ends you lose a bit of yourself because you have to say goodbye to the characters. I don't want to say goodbye to these characters.
Requiem is told from two point of views Lena's and Hana's. Lena is still in the wild. Alex is back. Julian is there. Then you have Hana who we haven't seen since book one. She's cured and she is preparing for her wedding, where she will marry the Fred Hargrove who became the mayor after his father died. Even though Hana is cured she still doesn't agree with everything. She's still curious and she still cares about some things. In there world she would probably be considered a sympathizer.
The resistance is growing and becoming stronger. Lots of people die and it is horrible. Everyone has hope for a better world, even if it is the wrong world they can choose it.
This book as is beautifully written as Delirium and Pandemonium. It is a amazing final book for a wonderful series. In the end the resistance is still fighting and the government has not yet changed. Lena chooses between Alex and Julian. Things look like they will be ok but it isn't a happily every after ending. I realize that is totally unrealistic but I want to know all the characters are happy and safe and that the government will change and that things will be ok. I'm probably just saying this because I don't want the series to end. Well now it is time to say goodbye to the characters.
This book is incredible and it really is a great end to this series.
