“Remarkable, not-to-be-missed-under-any-circumstances.”—Entertainment Weekly (Grade A)
The Passage meets Ender’s Game in an epic new series from award-winning writer Rick Yancey.
After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky live to tell the tale. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: consider 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 will have to choose: between consider and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To surrender or to rise up.
“Wildly entertaining . . . I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.”—Justin Cronin, The New York Times Book Review
“A modern sci-fi masterpiece . . . must do for aliens what Twilight did for vampires.”—USAToday.com
An Amazon Best Teen Book of the Month, May 2013 Spotlight Pick: Omit your E.T. version of sweet, harmless aliens–in The 5th Wave, Rick Yancey imagines a silent invasion that takes extraterrestrial intelligence to a whole new level. Alternating points of view peel back each new layer of the novel even as death, separation, and love, push his diverse characters to live to tell the tale in a terrifying new world. As a storyteller, Yancey is as cunning as his aliens, weaving the characters’ lives together in unexpected ways. After the first couple of chapters I found myself sucked wholeheartedly into the story, wondering who can be trusted and what chilling new twist is lurking around the corner. Book 2 can’t get here fast enough… –Seira Wilson
