If you spend anytime in the library, and many of you do, chatting to me about which book to read next, you’d know that my favourite genre is science fiction. So I am a little excited that there is a new trilogy out by Rick Yancey. The first book – The 5th Wave is an action packed read that has a bit of everything; it is end of the world disaster meets alien invasion, boy meets girl, girl tries to rescue younger brother type scenario. If you enjoyed Ender’s Game, Hunger Games and Divergent – then this is a must read. A little more action packed – if that is possible – and the actual writing is rather good.
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’sonly hope for rescuing her brother—or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender. http://www.the5thwaveiscoming.com/books
