"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."

My Thoughts:

Having heard rave reviews, had to check this out for myself. I was not disappointed. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey is told in the point of view of the main female character Cassie Sullivan, a sixteen year old. Her high school crush Ben Parrish, and her little brother Sammy. This is a dyspotian sci-fi world. Where there has been 5 waves taken place. To get rid of the human species for the aliens or are they already here.

After being separated from her brother Cassie is determined to keep her promise of finding Sammy. Along the way she meets Evan Walker. Who is more than meets the eye. He helps her break into Camp Heaven. Where she comes face to face with Colonel Alexander Vosch.

I was on the edge of my seat. During the crazy ride in this amazing novel. This has to be my favorite book of 2013!!!!

5/5 stars, Happy Reading, Ashley
