Overview

This captivating 50-page digital-original 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.

    And it¿s really over¿if I thought Requiem was going to leave me

    And it’s really over…if I thought Requiem was going to leave me with PTSD then Raven may have just tipped me over the edge. I am bereft. This world, this amazing wonderfully crafted world Ms Oliver has chosen to share with us is over.

    This story was my favourite of all the novellas and quite possibly is higher than Requiem! The story of Raven and Tack, a quiet unassuming love, no wild declarations, no breathless pleas of “I can’t live without you” just pure, deep, mature love.

    The events of Requiem make this peek into their world even more heartbreaking as we see hints of plans for the future, happiness, peace obliterated.

    Lauren, you’ve done it again. Beautiful, compelling and utterly heart wrenching.

    Now…just do us all a favour and write Book Four dammit!!

    Raven can be read after Pandemonium; but I chose to read it afte

    Raven can be read after Pandemonium; but I chose to read it after Requiem, and, I couldn't stop crying for quite a while. Raven's story is heart-breaking. But, I wouldn't change it for anything - everything that she went through is what made her into the Raven that we got to know and love... we see a totally different side to Raven. We actually get to find out what she was thinking and going through in the last half of Pandemonium. Everything that she did makes so much more sense now. 
    Also, I really liked that we got a peek into Raven and Tack's relationship - got to see how they met and how they ended up together. We also get to see how she found Blue and the special relationship and bond that they shared... my heart aches for all three characters, so very much.

    In my honest opinion, in order to get the full effect of Raven's story - really feel for her - I would definitely wait to read it after you have finished reading the series.

    I wish I had read this before I read Requiem. If I were to make

    I wish I had read this before I read Requiem. If I were to make a recommendation, I would probably say you should definitely read this in order. Then again, had I read it first I would have been really annoyed. And this is why, because there is stuff that happens in Raven's story that is not at all addressed in Requiem. And that is just so annoying to me. Why would Oliver put this stuff out there and then not do anything at all with it? 
    If you have not read Pandemonium, there are spoilers below, so don't continue to read! You've been warned.
    In any case, this was a great glimpse into Raven. It is told in a now and then type of scenario but only broken up by paragraph separations. The before is Raven's life right after she escaped to the Wilds and a few years after as she forms relationships with the other Invalids. The now is when they get Lena after she saves Julian from sure death in the clinic.
    I liked reading about Raven as a younger girl, after she escaped into the Wilds and how she adapted. The story hit a nerve especially because there is information about Blue in it that tugs at your heart. I so missed her after she was gone. We also get a glimpse of Raven's relationship with Tack. We learn about their love and how they express it to each other, how they met and how their love grew.
    As always, I just love Oliver's writing. She just has such a way with descriptions and words it's impossible not to get pulled into her stories.
    Without telling spoilers, I will say that things are revealed in this novella that are never again addressed in Requiem. As I said above, no matter when I would have read this it would have bothered me. Oliver drops a big bomb about Raven, but you never ever see it in Requiem. Why she put it out there when she wasn't ever going to address or have it come up at all is beyond me.
    So, I will give this 4/5 stars because the writing is great and I love Raven's character, despite my annoyance by knowing things are left in the wind in the next book. I was jaded by having read the third book of this series before this novella and I can't get that out of my mind.

    It was okay

    It was a nice view of Raven's personal life. The details it gave ended up being crushing, considering what happens in Requiem. Very short, but if you're going to read the whole Delirium series, it's worth knowing Raven's perspective too.

    Whoah! Pretty good. One simple fact you got wrong, though: Crows don't have teeth. Other than that, five stars!
