“Remarkable, not-to-be-missed-under-any-circumstances.”—Entertainment Weekly

The Passage meets Ender's Game in an epic New York Times bestselling series debut 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.

“Wildly entertaining . . . I couldn't turn the pages fast enough.”—Justin Cronin, The New York Times Book Review

“A modern sci-fi masterpiece . . . should do for aliens what Twilight did for vampires.”—USAToday.com

Editoral Review

An Amazon Best Teen Book of the Month, May 2013 Spotlight Pick: Forget your E.T. version of sweet, harmless aliens–in The 5th Wave, Rick Yancey imagines a silent invasion that takes extraterrestrial intelligence to a whole new level. Alternating points of view peel back each new layer of the novel while death, separation, and love, push his diverse characters to survive in a terrifying new world. As a storyteller, Yancey is as cunning as his aliens, weaving the characters’ lives together in unexpected ways. After the first couple of chapters I found myself sucked wholeheartedly into the story, wondering who can be trusted and what chilling new twist is lurking around the corner. Book 2 can’t get here fast enough… –Seira Wilson
