Teen Book Review – Elizabeth

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

Genre: Teen Fantasy

“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 get up.”

Personally, I don’t usually like post – alien apocalyptic novels, but this one had me hooked from the start. It’s slightly predictable, but the big plot twists come at you like a curve ball. It reminds me a little of The Host by Stephanie Meyer but it’s not exactly like it.  There are things in this story that makes it unique from anything else. This is the first installment of the series.
