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.

My Thoughts

This is a short story giving insight into Raven the leader of the group Lena stays with in the wilds. During pandemonium Raven is pretty guarded so you do not get to know to much about her. This short story is basically to give you more insight into her character and you get to find out about her relationship with Tack. There is also a little something, something going on that will come to light in requiem I won't spoil it for those that have not read Raven.

This is a very quick read ideal as a gap filler just before requiem.
