Synopsis
The Passage meets Ender’s Game in an epic new series from award-winning author Rick Yancey.

After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.

Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother—or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up. (Goodreads)
Why I'm Waiting
I saw The Passage mentioned, and I was immediately onboard! That's one of my favorite horror books EVER!

I mean, what isn't there to like about The 5th Wave? It sounds terrifying! And Rick Yancey is also the author of the popular The Monstrumologist series which I will be starting this month! So excited!

What is everyone else waiting for?

  2. At the risk of sounding like a crazy person, I've read The 5th Wave and it is OMIGOD AMAZING. It's pretty long so it took me a few days to read and while I was reading it, I could pretty much only think about that book--I can't wait until the world gets its hands on it.

  8. I'm definitely excited to read this myself! Though I may have to temper my excitement if this turns out to be more scary than thriller-esque. The title comparison also excites me, but from the Ender's Game perspective. And not too far away from publication yay!
