My Rating4star


How do you rid the Earth of seven billion humans? Rid the humans of their humanity.

Surviving the first four waves was nearly impossible. Now Cassie Sullivan finds herself in a new world, a world in which the fundamental trust that binds us together is gone. As the 5th Wave rolls across the landscape, Cassie, Ben, and Ringer are forced to confront the Others’ ultimate goal: the extermination of the human race.

Cassie and her friends haven’t seen the depths to which the Others will sink, nor have the Others seen the heights to which humanity will rise, in the ultimate battle between life and death, hope and despair, love and hate. ”

my review

I loved this book. I think I liked this book even more than the first one.

This time we saw other people’s point of views.

We had a lot of Ringer’s life story in here and I loved it. It was absolutely beautiful.

Yancey’s writing is absolutely stunning. It’s almost poetic at times. There are so many passages within the story that make you stop and reflect on life. The writing never takes away from the story though.

You grow to love the characters even more, and get even more absorbed into the story. We are also introduced to a new character who might be even better than Evan Walker!

I honestly am super excited to see how this trilogy ends. The Last Star will be released May 24, 2016 which is almost here!

*the quote I post might be a spoiler so don’t read further if you’re afraid of a spoiler*

I’ll end this review with a passage that I loved

“Really? And how could one poor human pawn pose any danger whatsoever?”

“He fell in love, and love is the only weakness”


Beside me, Razor’s breath. Before me, Teacup’s uplifted face.

“Becaues love is irrational,” I tel Vosch. “It doesn’t follow rules. Not even its own rules. Love is the one thing in the universe that’s unpredictable”
