Lena will receive her cure in 95 days. So in just over three months, she’ll be safe from the deliria. Then she’ll have a government-approved marriage match and will never feel pain, hate, or the most forbidden emotion: love. Sarah Drew perfectly exudes Lena’s confused emotions, especially her passion, as she learns to feel. As Lena slowly becomes more aware of the world around her and learns its secrets and horrors, Drew masterfully infuses the story with tension and fraught emotions. Tender moments between Lena and her secret boyfriend, Alex, allow Drew to create warm vignettes amid the depictions of Lena’s life in a rigidly controlled society. Ultimately, Lena’s transformation from a timid teen to a brave young woman who faces innumerable dangers will leave listeners eager for the next volume in this dystopian trilogy.
