It's so intriguing and sad. May 06, Christina Harris rated it it was amazing That was 70 pages? It went by in a blink.
Can't wait for the rest! May 11, Rob Kristoffersen rated it really liked it It seems more and more that the full exploration of alien encounters has lost its PG branding. Yancey does this in a biblical sort of style, as waves of plagues, disease, natural disasters, and distrust wipe out the population It seems more and more that the full exploration of alien encounters has lost its PG branding.
Yancey does this in a biblical sort of style, as waves of plagues, disease, natural disasters, and distrust wipe out the population and hit the survivors. A couple of gripes; early on, Cassie says that the human element is as dangerous as the alien element.
That could be just because there aren't that many humans on the planet. The second problem I have is the back story at the end of Cassie's last current scene. We end with her underneath a car, and at least three subsequent chapter explores back story.
I have no problem with exploring back story, hell, it's very much needed, but I don't like long deviations from the current plot. Other than that, this is a fantastic free preview.
Continuing on with this for sure! I'll absolutely be reading this soon! A very bitter and cruel end to the world.
The aliens came, and there was nothing anyone could do. The 5th Wave, written by Rick Yancy, is a dystopic novel that takes the genre to a new level. In the novel, aliens invade the earth, bringing death and destruction in five well defined waves.
During the first wave, an EMP destroys all electronics on earth. In the second wave, a massive bar is dropped from space that causes total destruction on every coastline in the world. The third wave occurs when a modified Ebola virus wipes out more than seven billion people.
Then, in the fourth wave it is discovered that some humans are hosts to the alien forms. The fifth wave is just beginning as teenagers Cassie and Ben make their way separately through a world they no longer understand. Cassie is alone. She thinks she might be the last human left on Earth.
Cassie is a survivor of an alien invasion that has come in four waves. Cassie's mother died from the Ebola virus in the second wave. During the fourth wave, her father was killed by soldiers. Ironically, before the soldiers gunned down her father, she had believed that they would save her family. Cassie now lives alone in the woods.
She has a promise she must keep. Cassie promised her little brother Sammy that she would come for him at the military base where the soldiers took him after their father's death. However, as Cassie makes her way to the military base, she is shot in the leg by an alien hosts she refers to as Silencers. Cassie becomes sick as the snows begin to fall and nearly dies.
