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.
This was one of my favourite reads of 2013 and I’m stoked they’ve made it into a movie! To celebrate the film Penguin Random House has released a new “movie tie in” of the 5th Wave (it has a different cover to the one I have).
If you haven’t given it a read yet you really should. It’s absolutely brilliant, such a great take on the usual alien invasion. I could somehow see this one happening. And Cassie is a brilliant, strong and determined character. I haven’t seen the movie yet, not sure why. Maybe cause I’m scared it won’t live up to the book (as with most).
It also happens to be our February BOTM over at the secret book club (come find us on FB and request to be added if you’re seriously into books).
If you don’t own a copy yet and you want one here’s your chance cause I have a copy of it with your name on it! (no it’s not signed, sorry) Just leave a comment letting me know what you’re currently reading :)
** Draw closes Friday the 26th and I’ll email the winner to get their postage details.
Just a little heads up – it has a weird ending cause there’s a book two which you can purchase here > Infinite Sea.
And book three (the last star) is said to publish May this year. FINALLY!
