Lena's mother, Annabel, has always been a mystery—a ghost in Lena's past. Until now.Discover her secrets in Lauren Oliver's brilliant original digital story set in the world of New York Times bestsellers Delirium and Pandemonium. Lena Halloway's mother, Annabel, supposedly committed suicide when Lena was only six years old. That's the lie that Lena grew up believing, but the truth is very different. As a rebellious teenager, Annabel ran away from home and straight into the man she knew she was destined to marry. The world was different then—the regulations not as stringent, the cure only a decade old. Fast forward to the present, and Annabel is consigned to a dirty prison cell, where she nurtures her hope of escape and scratches one word over and over into the walls: Love. But Annabel, like Lena, is a fighter. Through chapters that alternate between her past and present, Annabel reveals the story behind her failed cures, her marriage, the births of her children, her imprisonment, and, ultimately, her daring escape.

Annabel is the story of Lena's mother and it really gives readers of the series a little bit of insight to her. It starts years before Lena was born and shares Annabel's experience with the cure and her time in the crypts. Annabel grew up as society was changing and she rebelled against it, eventu...

After the rather disappointing ending to Requiem, I was relieved to stumble across the set of novellas associated with the series, hoping they would provide further closure. While this was not the case with Annabel, I was glad I took the time to read it. Annabel provides further insight into the cha...

So this was just a short little filler that goes before Delirium, so this will just be a short and sweet little review! We don't know too much about Lena's mother, Annabel, but we learn about the time when she was a teenager until after she gave birth to Lena and her sister, Rachel. She met her hu...

Annabel is an intriguing look into Lena's mother, Annabel. Both past and present actions are shown in this short story and I found myself wanting more. Annabel proved to be a very interesting character and I would love to have had even greater look into the past and present for Annabel. The plight o...
