This captivating story set in the world of Lauren Oliver’s New York Times bestselling Delirium series focuses on Raven, the fiery leader of a rebel group in the Wilds.

As a teenager, Raven made the split-second decision to flee across the border to the Wilds, compelled to save an abandoned newborn—a baby girl left for dead and already blue from the cold. When she and the baby are taken in by a band of rebels, Raven finds herself an outsider within a tight-knit group. The only other newcomer is an untrustworthy boy known as the Thief until he finally earns himself a new name: Tack.

Now she and Tack are inseparable, committed to each other, the fledgling rebellion, and a future together. But as they both take center stage in the fight, Raven must decide whether the dangers of the revolution are worth risking her dreams of a peaceful life with Tack.

As her story hurtles back and forth between past and present, Raven transforms from a scared girl newly arrived in the Wilds to the tough leader who helps Lena save former Deliria-Free poster boy Julian Fineman from a death sentence. Whatever the original mission may have been, Raven abides by a conviction that she believes to her core: You always return for the people you love.

By turns surprising, revelatory, and poignant, Raven’s story enriches the Delirium world and resonates with a voice that is as vulnerable as it is strong.

Raven. Sejujurnya, baca novella ini agak lambat. Awalnya malah aku mau kasih rate 3. Tapi…. tapi setelah aku baca sampai ending….. Aku naikkin jadi 3,5 deh..

Dari antara novella lainnya, Annabel dan Hana, sejujurnya menurutku ini yang paling nggak menarik. Kenapa? Menurutku pribadi, ceritanya datar. Nggak seperti Lena yang complicated dan naikturun, Hana yang juga agak misterius, rasa-rasanya aku sudah tahu kisah yang disebut Raven disini.

Kalau sudah baca Delirium series, semua juga tahu kalau Raven sama Tack saling jatuh cinta kan? Mungkin yang paling menarik disini adalah, ending dari cerita ini. Kalau ternyata…. ternyataa….. rahasia! Ayo, baca sendiri :p

Di novella ini sih kembali diulas bagaimana Raven datang ke Wilds, bagaimana Raven harus pertama kali menghadapi para Invalid? Dan, bagaimana awalnya Raven dan Tack bertemu. Disana juga disebutkan, bahwa sebenarnya Tack adalah pencuri (sebelumnya ia tak bernama). Setelah ia membantu Raven menyelamatkan Blue, mengambil resiko didalam hidupnya hanya untuk menepati janjinya kepada Raven untuk menyembuhkan Blue, orang-orang disana memangggilnya Tack. “He is as sharp as Tack.”

Dan, satu quote yang saya suka dari Raven…. “Love. I love you. I’ll always love you, my love. You are the love of my life.”
