Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey made my top ten list in 2013, so I was eager to begin The Infinite Sea, the second book in the trilogy. Aliens, human survival and a small group of characters told in multiple perspectives delivers us back into this war torn world. While I think the book suffered middle book syndrome I closed the book impressed by Yancey and the world that holds me captive.
When I read the synopsis and saw “The Passage meets Ender’s Game” I knew I had to read Rick Yancey’s The 5th Wave. I am not familiar with Ender’s Game but I am a huge fan of Cronin’s epic novel The Passage. This was an outstanding dystopian that gave me chills with characters I couldn’t help but root for. At almost five hundred pages I quickly consumed this as I slipped into Yancey’s world. Three word review: epic, believable, genius.
