The 5th Wave

by Rick Yancy


No one knows what the 5th wave is yet. The first 4 waves killed almost everyone. For Cassie the only hope for survival has been to stay alone. To keep away from other people, while searching for her younger brother. But when Evan Walker saves her life, she begins to hope that staying with him will be the right choice. As they work together to try and find her brother, she’ll learn things that will cause her to question everything she knew, everything she’s learned since the invasion, and everything that might come after.

Not your typical alien invasion book, Yancy has weaved an interesting tale of a being that comes to our planet with the aim of living here. Cassie is a strong character who has survived through a combination of luck and resourcefulness. The book weaves her story with that of her brother's and her high school crush's. The book is original and keeps you guessing til the end. It's well worth the read, an edge of your seat book you'll have a tough time putting down. It is part one of a series.
