EBook

2014
The riveting follow-up to the New York Times bestselling The 5th Wave, hailed by Justin Cronin as “wildly entertaining.”   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.   Praise for The 5th Wave   “Just read it.”—Entertainment Weekly   “A modern sci-fi masterpiece.”—USA Today   “Wildly entertaining . . .

★★★★★ Wow! this book is amazing!

The book, “The Infinite Sea” by Rick Yancey is a fantastic book. It is the second book of The 5th Wave series. This book is science fiction and it is adventure/romance. What I like about the writing style of this book is that it goes back and forth between characters. This helps me understand the book and gives me a better understanding of the characters thoughts and feelings. I really liked this book, it was very well written. The book's main characters are Ringer and Alex. I love these characters so much. They make this book so much better because they have troubled love. “‘You’re free’ Alex whispers.” Ringer and Alex love each other very much, they just have trouble keeping their relationship. I would recommend this book to anyone.

The beginning of the first book was great, but by the ending I did not really care what happened to the characters.

★★★☆☆ The Infinite Sea

Good book although not quite as riveting as the first one. Nice to see Yancey continue character development and focus on some of the other lesser people. More information being revealed about the aliens and their intentions. The 3rd book should wrap things up nicely.
