Editorial reviews

Editors Select, September 2014 - To say "we’re excited about this one" would be an understatement. The sequel to Rick Yancey’s best-selling, YA alien invasion epic, The Fifth Wave, has everyone on our team – from editors to VPs – buzzing (in fact two of us decided to get behind this one jointly!). In a literary landscape soaked with teen dystopian thrillers, the world Yancey created is a cut above. His multiple perspectives round out the unique world he has created, and his portrayal of Cassie – the teen heroine – is beyond believable (and unbelievable when you note she was written by a male author!) If you haven’t gotten on the Rick Yancey bandwagon, we recommend you do so now – you don’t want to miss out. —Audible Editors, Chris and Emily

Publisher's summary

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.

Cassie and her friends haven't seen the depths to which the Others will sink, nor have the Others seen the heights to which humanity will rise, in the ultimate battle between life and death, hope and despair, love and hate.

"This gut-wrenching sequel to The 5th Wave careens on a violent course of nonstop action.” (Publishers Weekly, starred review)
