After the first wave, only darkness remains. After the second, only the lucky escape. And after the third, only the unlucky survive. After the fourth wave, only one rule applies: Trust no one. Now, it's the dawn of the fifth 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.
"Not Your Typical YA Dystopian Fare"
How do you rid the Earth of seven billion humans? Rid the humans of their humanity. Surviving the first four waves was nearly impossible. Now Cassie Sullivan finds herself in a new world, a world in which the fundamental trust that binds us together is gone. As the 5th Wave rolls across the landscape, Cassie, Ben, and Ringer are forced to confront the Others' ultimate goal: the extermination of the human race.
"Not as good as the first :("
We're here, then we're gone, and that was true before they came. That's always been true. The Others didn't invent death; they just perfected it. Gave death a face to put back in our face, because they knew that was the only way to crush us. It won't end on any continent or ocean, no mountain or plain, jungle or desert. It will end where it began, where it had been from the beginning: on the battlefield of the last beating human heart.
Dr. Warthrop is a scientist who tracks and studies real-life monsters. Assisted by his 12-year-old apprentice, Will Henry, Dr. Warthrop discovers a pod of Anthropophagi and launches a hunt to destroy the foul beasts.
"Excellent naration brought the horror to life"
Rick Yancey won the Michael L. Printz Award for the stunning first entry in his Monstrumologist saga. In the series’ third entry, Will Henry is left behind as Dr. Warthrop and his eager new assistant Arkwright embark on a quest to find the “Holy Grail of Monstrumology.” But when Arkwright returns with news of the doctor’s demise, Will sets off on his own quest, to the Isle of Blood, to determine the truth.
Will Henry and Dr. Warthrop have encountered many horrors together, but can Will endure a monstrumological terror without his mentor? Will Henry has been through more than seems possible for a boy of fourteen. He's been on the brink of death on more than one occasion, he has gazed into hell and hell has stared back at him, and known his face. But through it all, Dr. Warthrop has been at his side.
Rick Yancey’s first gothic suspense tale, The Monstrumologist, earned him a prestigious Michael L. Printz Award. The second installment of this acclaimed series, Curse of the Wendigo, finds young Will Henry on the hunt for a supernatural beast plaguing New England in the late 1800s. Will and his mentor, the domineering Dr. Warthrop, are enlisted to help the doctor’s former fiancée. It seems her husband has been lost in the Canadian wilderness.

"A good listen!"
Die erste Welle brachte Dunkelheit. Die zweite Zerstörung. Die dritte ein tödliches Virus. Nach der vierten Welle gibt es nur noch eine Regel fürs Überleben: Traue niemandem! Das hat auch Cassie lernen müssen, denn seit der Ankunft der Anderen hat sie fast alles verloren: Ihre Freunde und ihre Familie sind tot, ihren kleinen Bruder haben sie mitgenommen. Das Wenige, was sie noch besitzt, passt in einen Rucksack. Und dann begegnet sie Evan Walker.
Das grandiose Finale der Bestseller-Trilogie. Sie kamen, um uns zu vernichten: die 'Anderen', eine fremde feindliche Macht. Vier Wellen der Zerstörung haben sie bereits über die Erde gebracht. Sie töteten unzählige Menschen, zerstörten Häuser und Städte, verwüsteten ganze Landstriche. Sie verbreiteten ein tödliches Virus und schickten gefährliche Silencer, um jedes noch lebende Wesen aufzuspüren. Jetzt ist die Zeit der fünften Welle gekommen, die Vollendung ihres Plans, alles Menschliche auszurotten.
Die erste Welle vernichtete eine halbe Million Menschen, die zweite noch viel mehr. Die dritte Welle dauerte ganze zwölf Wochen an, danach waren vier Milliarden tot. Nach der vierten Welle kann man niemandem mehr trauen. Cassie Sullivan hat überlebt, nur um sich jetzt in einer Welt wiederzufinden, die von Misstrauen, Verrat und Verzweiflung bestimmt wird. Und während die fünfte Welle ihren Verlauf nimmt, halten Cassie, Ben und Ringer ihre kleine Widerstandsgruppe zusammen, um gemeinsam gegen die Anderen zu kämpfen.
