Too good to be true? Nope. Lauren Oliver comments on it herself:
We definitely learn some new information about the final installment of Oliver’s trilogy in this review. So read at your own risk! Having read the review myself, I can say that it’s exciting to get a taste of Requiem. But if you want a completely clean slate when opening to Chapter One, I recommend not reading these reviews of ARCs, which are bound to pop up more and more often as we get closer to that wonderful day in March 2013.
If you’ve read the review and would like to comment, please put a spoiler warning before your discussion of anything that is new info from Ms. Appelhans’s review!
So far I’ve gotten almost 200 responses to the Requiem ARC giveaway! I’m so excited to sit down and read all of those stories, but in the meantime I’m really excited to announce the next part of the collaboration writing challenge! Once again, we had a lot of great entries, so remember to keep submitting, even if yours hasn’t yet been selected. There’s a lot of this story yet to come and we need as many voices as possible. This week’s story is extra long. The first part was written by, Heather Kirby, and the second part was written by my friend and assistant Natasha! Next week, along with you guys, I’ll jump in with a second of my own!
I can’t wait for you guys to let me know what happens next! Remember, send the next 200 words of the story to email@example.com by AUGUST 8TH. That’s ONE WEEK guys! And have fun with it!

The biggest question on everyone’s minds after finishing Pandemonium: Will the Portland characters from Deilirium return in Requiem? Well — other than the OBVIOUS question involving a certain love triangle.
Lauren Oliver has given us some pretty strong indication that they will, in that tongue-in-cheek, cryptic (no relation to The Crypts) way she often does. See this question and answer from her Tumblr:
OK, so it’s not OFFICIAL, but we’re reading it that way. Personally, that makes me quite excited! Grace was such an intriguing character, and it will be fascinating to see how Lena’s old world interacts with the new. We even wonder: Would Grace stand in for Blue in Raven’s eyes? (Just a thought!)
