WOW. This series is immense!!! Bring on Book 3 - I can't wait!!! I really hope they make movies of the Parallon Trilogy, they would be amazing. I love the characters so much. Dee Shulman is such a brilliant writer! I can't recommend these books more!!! Only make sure you read them in order.

WARNING: May contain spoilers for those of you who have not read book one of this trilogy.

If you've been following my reviews, you'll know that I absolutely hated book one of the Parallon Trilogy, Fever. There was poor character development, a poor plot and the most insta-lovey insta-love I have ever seen. Suffice to say, Fever was a major disappointment for me which is a shame because it had so much potential. Unsurprisingly, I didn't have very high hopes for Delirium, though I had read some r

This review is also available on my blog: http://bonfirebooks.wordpress.com/201...



This book continues from the cliff-hanger of book one Fever where Eva has awoken after her kiss with Seth. Eva tries to continue searching for her mysterious disease and the strange case that is Professor Ambrose but her illness causes her to take several turns for the worst. This causes Seth to become extremely worried and continue his rigorous search for a way for them to be together.

ATTENTION : cette chronique peut contenir des spoilers du tome précédent !

Bon... J'avais refermé le tome 1 légèrement mitigée et c'est aussi le cas pour ce tome 2.

Nous retrouvons Eva et Seth au même point qu'à la fin du tome 1 ; et nos deux tourtereaux vont en profiter un peu. Toujours aussi motivés à trouver un remède au virus, ils cherchent désespérément une solution notamment avec des tests... Mais, alors qu'ils sont tous les deux plongés dans ce travail, des évènements étranges apparaissent

This was great - better than I could have hoped for. The drama unfolds and the prospect of global catastrophe colours the suspense as the story builds. I can't wait for book three and I'm mystified as to how the story can play out and be resolved in only one more volume! I also fail to see why any reviewer who "hated" the first book in the series would bother to read the next instalment, only to write a bad review (unless she's in the employ of Cassius of course!!)

Absolutely brilliant book! Could not put it down once I started it! This series just gets better and better which I didn't think was possible! A very clever read, while being thrilling, romantic and original. Still can't stop thinking about it and trying to work out how its all going to resolve in the final book. Dee Shulman - we want the final instalment NOW!!!

1ère Partie

Eva
Londres, 2012 apr. J.-C.
Dès son plus jeune âge Eva Koretsky s'était rendue compte qu'elle possédait une intelligence et une mémoire plus importante que la normale. Cela lui permit, par exemple, de pirater de nombreux sites internet. Expulsée des différents collèges où elle avait été scolarisée, sa mère et Colin - son beau père - l'obligeaient pourtant à y aller. Jusqu'au jour où, par erreur, elle tomba

Eva und Seth haben sich geküsst, doch der Virus schien nicht auf Eva übergesprungen zu sein und dennoch ist sie Gesundheitlich immer mehr angeschlagen.
Als wäre das Bangen um ihre Gesundheit nicht genug gibt es immer mehr Opfer des Virus und der Druck steigt bei Seth, den Virus endlich zu verstehen.
Auch die Öffentlichkeit schaltet sich mittlerweile ein und der Fall geht an die Polizei, die allerdings weitestgehend im Dunkeln tappt.
Nur ein von dem Fall abgezogenen Polizisten scheint den Ausmaß zu

J'avais acheté le tome 2 de PARALLON avant le tome 1 parce que le résumé me tentait énormément. Alors j'ai pris le tome 1 et - oh surprise !- je n'ai pas été si emballée que ça. Quand j'ai attaqué ce tome 2, je me suis dit que ce serait génial puisqu'il m'intéressait et re - oh surprise ! - j'en sors dépitée et sans doute un peu déprimée.

Je m'attendais à tellement mieux !

Voici mon avis sur Parallon, tome 2

Donc on retrouve Seth et Eva là où on les avait laissé. Le gladiateur a franchi le pas et

Pierwszy tom „Gorączki” nie wywarł na mnie większego wrażenia i pewnie przeszedłby bez echa, gdyby nie to, że na półce już czekała kolejna część. Liczyłam na to, że Dee Shulman poprawi kilka niedociągnięć oraz rozwinie niektóre wątki i pełna oczekiwań rozpoczęłam lekturę.

W drugiej części wreszcie zaczyna się coś dziać. Ewa i Seth zaczynają pracę nad tajemniczym wirusem, powodującym całkowitą dematerializację ciała, jednak ciągle nie mogą rozgryźć zagadki do końca. Dowiadujemy się również więcej

A raging fever, a consuming passion and a love worth fighting for!

Blending sci-fi and Dystopia within a YA setting this immaculately researched and convincing story, incorporates evocative and highly imaginative settings.

Le premier volume avait été un coup de cœur, celui-ci ne déroge pas à la règle également. Bien meilleur que le précédent, l’intrigue prend une allure d’enquête avec l’apparition de nouveaux personnages, de nouveaux rebondissements. De quoi nous retourner davantage le cerveau.

La fin du précédent volume nous laissait décontenancé, ne sachant pas si nos amoureux survivraient à l’expression de leur amour, et nous laissant toujours dans l’ombre du virus. Ici, on retrouve avec joie les différents poin

The premise was so good. So, so good. There was real potential here. So what happened along the way that bumped Delirium down from a potentially 4-star review to a low 3-star? Well...

Okay, here's the thing. I love time-travel. It's confusing and complicated and it messes with my head just when I think I have a handle of how it works. I've loved it since it first showed up in Harry Potter, and I love it still. So, I was excited about reading a story all about time-travel. Except... it's not reall

I dont know why but I thought this would be a good read. I dont know what I was on to get through the first book and then give it three stars but anyway.

The negatives:
what a copious amount there are.
- I was eye rolling all the way through this book; cliches, bad lines said by bad bad guys and oh so many romans using the word baby. I mean it, if I had made a tally, by the end of the book It would have summed up to about 20-30 babies. It was horrifying.
- Seth and Eva's relationship is a textbook

For me this book was an interesting enough read but possibly a bit too much of a 'second book in a series' book for me to really get as much as I would have liked for it.

To start off what I enjoyed about it.

I loved the book had a 'so far in the series' page. I read so many series that I struggle to keep up with all the ones I'm part way through and I loved that this book did this as it meant I go go back into the series without too much problem about who was who and why they were doing what th

Cette suite n'est pas mauvaise, elle a eu l'avantage de se lire très vite, mais clairement elle n'est pas passionnante du tout. Je ne me suis pas ennuyée, mais je n'avais pas d'intérêt pour ce que je lisais. L'histoire qui défilait sous mes yeux avait du mal à me captiver jusqu'à ce que je sois lassée que rien n'avance. Les quelques nouveautés ne font pas grand effet, on continue de naviguer dans un brouillard s’épaississant toujours plus. Je n'ai pas senti d’anicroches avec les personnages, ce ...more

I read this after reading fever and was thrilled when it turned up on the spinebreakers book list, I leapt at the chance to get this book, as I absolutely loved fever and this book didn't disappoint!
After surviving the virus, Eva starts to get ill again and to make matters worse, the amount of people going to parrallon has caused an imbalance and Seth must travel to parrallon to save Eva, Parrallon and (dun, dun.....dddduuuuunnnnn) the world.
Not aided of course, by the return of villain, Cassius

Ce tome est bien meilleur que le premier cependant on reste toujours dans le flou quant aux tenants et aux aboutissants de l'histoire. J'avoue, cela dit, que l'idée de base est très bonne et les personnages intéressants. J'ai beaucoup aimé le couple improbable que forme la journaliste et le flic. La fin en cliffhanger est plus que frustrante.

Une belle et bonne surprise pour moi.

Olśniewająca...takim słowem opisałabym tą książkę. Historia Setha i Ewy się rozwija. Seth chce być cały czas ze swoją miłością lecz ma jeszcze obowiązki Parallonie. Postacie jak zawsze świetnie opisane, akcja ciekawa i żwawa. Koniec taki niespodziewany! Jestem wściekła na wydawnictwo, które ukazało, tą serię, ponieważ jej nie dokończyła! Trzeciej części nie ma, a tak się zakochałam w tej historii...

I fell in love with Fever and I was so happy when I got my hands on this book. The beggining wasn't that much interesting but soon the plot got really, really good. And the end was just freakin asom! I was like wtf just happened, I need book 3 like yesterday! I just hope Serbian edition come out soon!

I loved Fever (book 1) so much, and this was an epic follow up. I absolutely adore Dee Shulman's books and can't put them down. I am hanging for the 3rd one! MUST READ!

What! There's another book that I might become obsessed with that is titled 'Delirium'? What!? Delirium must be code for epic book. So far it has been. Please continue with the chain.
