The alien apocalypse is here. Four waves of catastrophes have already passed as we meet our main voice Cassie, even though there are more than her perspectives throughout the book, wandering off in search of her little brother.
The 5th Wave has everything: a bucket load of action, suspense, moments of complete awe, cliffhanger chapters, romance, an abundance of tear jerking scenes, and of course a giant cliffhanger as we wait for book 2 to be released sometime next year.
Holy cow. To compare this to the epic likes of The Hunger Games and Divergent would not do The 5th Wave justice. It's on an entirely different league. In fact, it's been spun out of orbit so far it has its own dimension.
The Passage meets Ender's Game in an epic new series from award-winning author Rick Yancey.
After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.
Now, it's the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth's last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie's only hope for rescuing her brother--or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.
