    This exciting finale to Lauren Olive's New York Times best-selling Delirium trilogy is a riveting blend of nonstop action and forbidden romance in a dystopian United States. Now an active member of the resistance, Lena has transformed. The nascent rebellion that was underway in Pandemonium has ignited into an all-out revolution in Requiem, and Lena is at the center of the fight. After rescuing Julian from a death sentence, Lena and her friends fled to the Wilds. But the Wilds are no longer a safe haven.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    "Favorite"

    I like the way both Hana and Lena had a chance to share their emotions (or lack of) and feelings. They have both changed so much in the last "year" (book time).


    What does Sarah Drew bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    eh - just different.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I always want to listen or read a book in one sitting. ALWAYS.


    Any additional comments?

    I was a little disapointed in the ending. After having all day to think about why - I've come to terms with the end of Hana's story - I think it makes an excellent point. But, I don't think the love triangle was adequately closed. I think a short epiloge just focusing on the love interest would have been nice.

    The first 2 books were great, but I got the feeling that she wasn't sure how to end the story.

    Sarah Drew did a great job going back and forth between the 2 characters, even when I had to stop mid-chapter it was easy tell who I had left off listening too.

    When prosecutor Vicki Allegretti arrives at a rowhouse to meet a confidential informant, she finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time, and is almost shot to death. She barely escapes with her life, but cannot save the two others gunned down before her disbelieving eyes. Stunned and heartbroken, Vicki tries to figure out how a routine meeting on a minor case became a double homicide.

    What made the experience of listening to Devil's Corner the most enjoyable?

    The storylinew as good and fast paced - kept me listening to the end despite the narration


    How could the performance have been better?

    I don't know what this narrator was doing, I see others saying swallowing, sucking on a cough drop - I was trying to decide between chewing gum and licking lips or swallowing. It was distracting and gross. Will NEVER listen to another book with this narrator.
