Raven PDF, ePub eBook 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.

    That was soooo amazing! I really liked Raven in Pandemonium, well at some point I was really upset with her, but it doesn't really matter. I think that Raven is stronger and more stubborn. And Tack (view spoiler)[Michael (hide spoiler)] is as amazing as in Pandemonium. He's one of the best characters. I also appreciated that Raven was thinking a lot about Blue. The only disappointment that we didn't find Raven's name. But, definitely better than Pandemonium or Annabel Delirium 0.5

    A short novella about Raven. This story tells about Raven's current life, but also flashes back on when she first entered the Wilds. I've read the main novels in the series, and am currently reading the novellas. So far, this was my favorite novella. This story runs parallel to Pandemonium, but should be read after reading it. I enjoyed learning more about Raven, and this book had me liking her more.

You see a girl whose past is bleaker than she let on in her piece of information revealed to Lena in Pandemonium, and you see a girl who dealt with an abusive childhood all her life. Raven is the story of how a girl can find love - something that is forbidden within this society - in other human beings. It talks about all kinds of love, love for family, romantic love, duty, responsibility. Raven was one of the most fascinating characters for me in this trilogy and I loved listening to her voice, to her point of view, and to her dreams and desires. So for that this book is great. As for plot... Oliver, knowing the outcome of this trilogy, WHY would you do this to me?

    Out of the three Delirium stories, Raven is definitely my favorite. Unlike a lot of Pandemonium readers, I didn’t initially fall in love with this character. She confused me and, at times, she annoyed me, but most of all I didn’t understand who she was and why. Now, however, after reading Raven, I do understand and she is one of my favorite characters.

Unlike a lot of Pandemonium readers, I didn’t initially fall in love with this character. She confused me and, at times, she annoyed me, but most of all I didn’t understand who she was and why. Now, however, after reading Raven, I do understand and she is one of my favorite characters. Told from Raven’s point of view, the story flips back and forth between the time she just escaped to the Wilds and current events, particularly saving Julian. We also find out more about Tack and his relationship with Raven: how the two met and what have they become throughout the years. What fascinated me even more than the backstory was Raven’s inner monologue – the personality hidden behind the tough façade. I suspected there was more to her than meets the eye after reading Pandemonium, but some of the things revealed in this short story exceeded my expectations. The book wouldn’t be complete without Laren Oliver’s signature vivid language and an unexpected twist at the end. What more could I ask for? More Raven, I guess. I devoured this story so quickly, that it seemed shorter than the others. The lack of chapters might have had something to do with it, but honestly I think it was just the fact that I wanted to know so much more, now that the veil has been lifted. I have to say, with everything that happened in the first two books and the short stories, Requiem should be one explosive finale. Fingers crossed, because my expectations are pretty high.

    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, I wish I had read this before I read Requiem.

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.

    Raven is perfection! It tells a wonderful story. At first, it never really occured to me to have Raven's Pov, but after reading this, I can honestly say it was perfect.

I regret not reading Raven before Requiem (I have this insane urge to re-read it just to grab hints or something that shows what happens next in Raven's "timeline"). So, yeah... Raven is amazing (but really short) and you should read it while holding your favorite stuffed animal and with tissues at arms-lenght.

    I’m always a stickler for reading books in order -- including their novellas -- but it was really hard to keep myself from diving into Requiem first.

I’ve said it before, but so many times it’s true: the book you expect to like the least will end up being the one you love the most. Raven was my favorite of the novellas from The Delirium Series.

Especially because Raven wasn’t exactly one of my favorite characters. I’ve said it before, but so many times it’s true: the book you expect to like the least will end up being the one you love the most. Raven was my favorite of the novellas from The Delirium Series. I have a whole new opinion of this head-strong, fiery character; and her relationship with Tack led to some extremely beautiful moments in this short story: “So we've made up our own language, in the way we press chest to chest and the way we touch noses when we kiss. I get to say his name - his real name. A name that brings a taste of sunshine, and of sunshine raising mist from the trees, and of mist reaching toward the sky. His secret name, which belongs to me, and to him, and to no one else.” The details in the ‘then and now’ of Raven’s life were extremely captivating. I loved seeing the more vulnerable side of Raven, and there were several revelations that brought me to tears. “… when I knew we’d both been saved – that night, I thought I knew God, just for a second.” Raven’s backstory intermixed with the accounts of what happened at the end of Pandemonium but told from her perspective was not only enlightening but a great recap before beginning the next book. It refreshed the details for me and put me in the perfect place to begin the final book. “Lies are just stories, and stories are all that matter. We all tell stories. Some are more truthful than others, maybe, but in the end the only thing that counts is what you can make people believe.” I’m so glad I read this first, because there is a particular piece of information included that is never brought to light in Requiem. A detail that really impacts the way a certain moment in Requiem affects the reader. Even if you didn’t read Hana or Annabel or if you’ve already read Requiem, this short story is not to be missed. It’s a stunning reminder of ‘never judge a book by its cover’ and of just how extraordinary Ms. Oliver’s writing is! “That’s what you do for family. Anything.” This review also appears on my blog, A Belle's Tales

I wasn't that much of a Raven fan in Pandemonium but after reading this, she really grew on me. It was a pretty decent read and I would have liked to read more of her POV. Raven was far more interesting than Lena, actually all the protagonists in the novellas have been better heroines than Lena. Lena is just a boring cow. I would have much rather preferred Raven, Hana or even Annabel over Lena's narration — it would have made the books far more engrossing.

    ‘Raven’ is yet another short novel inside of the ‘Delirium’ series by Lauren Oliver, and this one tells a background story of Raven, one of the prominent characters of the second book ‘Pandemonium’. Anyone who is familiar with the series knows, that these books are about a Dystopian futuristic world, where love and any affections are considered a disease preventing the society’s proper functioning. So every citizen at the age of 18 has to undergo a cure to get rid of the virus called Amor Deliria ‘Raven’ is yet another short novel inside of the ‘Delirium’ series by Lauren Oliver, and this one tells a background story of Raven, one of the prominent characters of the second book ‘Pandemonium’. Anyone who is familiar with the series knows, that these books are about a Dystopian futuristic world, where love and any affections are considered a disease preventing the society’s proper functioning. So every citizen at the age of 18 has to undergo a cure to get rid of the virus called Amor Deliria Nervosa. This procedure has been functioning for many years and appears to be succeeding. But, of course, things are not what they seem, and aside from all these cured and emotionless people, living in their guarded, isolated cities, there are also rebels, or invalids, living in the Wilds, who try to sabotage this whole system. When the main character of the first book ‘Delirium’, Lena, escapes to the Wilds, she sees this other, free world and meets people, who also managed to get away. Among these people is Raven, who has already spent years in the Wilds. Raven is a tough and strong girl, who at first doesn’t show any weakness or emotions. But as time goes, Lena learns that, just like her, Raven cares very much about her future and people she loves. I generally like all the short additions to this series, primarily because they don’t focus on Lena, as she has now three long books dedicated to her solely, and her story is thoroughly explored. Instead, it’s nice to get to know more about other characters as well, as they too, naturally, have to survive in the same world as Lena, they also have their struggles with finding what’s wright and wrong. ‘Raven’ is definitely my favorite among the others (‘Hana’ and ‘Annabel’), and this mostly has to do with the story’s total changing of my impression of Raven. I didn’t like her in ‘Pandemonium’, even though she obviously didn’t have it easy, with so many bad stuff happening to her. But she was a closed book to me, and I didn’t have that clear picture of her in my mind, as I have of Lena’s. This short novel is told from Raven’s point of view, and it finally opened up to me Raven’s inner world. It’s now understandable to me, why Raven is the way she is, and I consider her the true image of an Invalid, a person who continues fighting for her beliefs, no matter how hard and heartbreaking it may turn. ‘Raven’ also turned my attention to another character, mostly overlooked by me in ‘Pandemonium’, Tack. I didn’t care much about him before, but now I’d love to learn more of his background story. And also Raven and Tack’s romance was so beautifully written, that now I’m just as worried about their future as I am about Lena and Alex’s. This is definitely a book worth reading to any fan of the series. It’s pretty short, but it’s quite informative and sort of prepares the reader before continuing with the final installment ‘Requiem’.

Another thing I like about Ravens story was how she compared the life in the Wilds, how hard it was, the pain etc. to her abusive father. It hurt me to read about him. One thing that stood out to me was when Raven talks about a scene including her father and her mother. How her nasty father grabbed Ravens mother by that hair and slammed her face into the counter. I just wince every time I think of that. Ugh. Horrible. That is another downside of the cure. I now a lot more respect for Raven. 5/5

Then, she is talking about the day she and Tack save Lena and Julian from the surgical center when Lena had gone to rescue Julian. Up until now I was sort of on the fence concerning Raven. She is a tough girl and I wasn't sure how I felt about her. But this really helped me to see her differently. It gave us a lot more insight into her relationship with Tack. She really is just a girl, deep down inside, that wants all the normal things other girls want. Someone to love, a family, a safe home. But, during the times they live in, this seems like a lot to hope for.

I think Raven has some explaining to do in REQUIEM… Hopefully she takes some responsibility for this screw-up!

    The best novella of the Delirium series! I love the time lapses of Raven's life before the Wilds, her introduction to the new life, meeting Tack and her perspective of saving Julien. Out of all the novella's this one felt like it had the biggest impact on the rest of the series since Raven is such a private person. I'm so happy I finally decided to read this! Now I want to re-read the whole Delirium series again.

    Words fail me so... PS. I was listening to this song when I reached the end of the novella. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcihcY... So yeah. That did not help.

    Loved Raven. Hated the book. I thought maybe in this one Lauren Oliver will add something worthy. Nope :(

    Raven reminds me so much of Ringer from the 5th wave series. This one made me cry.
