The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

Title:  The 5th Wave

Author:  Rick Yancey

Collection:  Adult Fiction

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.

Best book of the summer!  Years ago, I read Rick Yancey’s Alfred Kropp series and recognized an author that I would put on my must read list.  But Mr. Yancey has outdone himself with this latest release.  A page turner that I couldn’t read fast enough, yet didn’t want to end either.  If you are a fan of science fiction, you must pick up a copy of 5th Wave.
