‘Remarkable, not-to-be-missed-under-any-circumstances . . . JUST READ IT’ Entertainment Weekly
THE 1st WAVE – Took out half a million people.
THE 2nd WAVE – Put that number to shame.
THE 3rd WAVE – Lasted a little longer. Twelve weeks . . . Four billion dead.
IN THE 4th WAVE – You can’t trust that people are still people.
AND THE 5th WAVE? No one knows…. But it’s coming.
For Cassie Sullivan and the rest of Earth’s remaining human survivors, the situation was already desperate when the 5th Wave hit. It’s about to get worse.
No one yet knows the depths to which Earth’s conquerors – the Others – will sink in order to rid the Earth of the human infestation, nor have they guessed the heights to which the human spirit can reach. Characters introduced in Book One will come to the fore – and others will face the ultimate test. GOODREADS
The 5th Wave saga continues in this wonderful book about the continuing decline of Earth at the whim of the Others. THE INFINITE SEA follows Cassie Sullivan and a small group of survivors who must find a way to continue to evade the Others and make some sort of future.
The plot is full of twists and every chapter brings new questions. It seems that the Others will stop at nothing to wipe out the last remnants of the human race. They have no conscience and stoop to new lows. How this series is going to pan out, I have no idea. Anything seems possible at this stage.
Ringer has a higher profile in this book, with her story becoming one of the main focus areas. She’s tough, she’s damaged and she’s enhanced. I can’t wait to see where her story goes. Overall, the characters are varied and deep, the plot is multi-layered, the tension is intense. There’s so much to like.
The only thing that bothered me was the changing POV. I know this happened in book 1 as well, but it did take me time to switch my mindset and understand which character was the focus of the chapter.
What a great follow-up to The 5th Wave. I loved this book and I’m looking forward to reading book 3, The Last Star.
