A Young Adult Novel That Will Blow Your Mind!
THE INFINITE SEA by Rick Yancey is the second book in The Fifth Wave series.
The book jacket reads, “How do you rid the Earth of seven billion humans? Rid the humans of their humanity.”
Wow! If that doesn’t peak your interest, then YOU just aren’t human.
“The mechanized world had died. Earthquakes and tsunamis had obliterated the coasts. Plague had consumed billions.” Cassie Sullivan and her band of misfits have survived the first four waves of devastation and are trying to survive the 5th Wave.
The first book ended with their escape from the alien camp. Now they need to figure out what’s next and how they will survive the winter.
Cassie Sullivan has rescued her brother, Sam (also called Nugget) from the alien reeducation camp. They escaped with a few others to a nearby hotel after blowing up the camp with the help of Evan Walker.
Everyone, except Cassie, believes that Evan was killed in the explosion. Evan told Cassie that he would always find her and she believed him.
Ringer (also known as Marika) goes out to scout a location to house them for the winter, but is caught.
What they do to her is unspeakable. What they are doing to the youngest kids is even worse.
Will humanity win out? Or will the aliens complete the 5th Wave and annihilate everyone who is left?
With quotes like: “The world is a clock winding down,” how could the reader not be instantly sucked into this book? Readers will not want to put this book down.
The story moves along rapidly and will enthrall any reader. More than that, the reader can’t help but be invested in the story. It is hard not to hope for humanity to prevail. But, will it? Or is too late?
I won’t spoil it by giving away too much information, but there is a twist near the end of the book that readers will not see coming and it will blow your mind.
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and I can’t wait until the conclusion to the story is released.
Nail biting excitement mixed with heart pounding terror! In short, this is an awesome read.
