How do you rid the Earth of seven billion humans? Rid the humans of their humanity.
Surviving the first four waves was nearly impossible. Now Cassie Sullivan finds herself in a new world, a world in which the fundamental trust that binds us together is gone. As the 5th wave rolls across the landscape, Cassie, Ben and Ringer are forced to confront the Others' ultimate goal; the extermination of the human race.
Cassie and her friends haven't see the depths to which the Others will sink, nor have the Others seen the heights to which humanity will rise, in the ultimate battle between life and death, hope and despair, love and hate.
4/5 stars (really liked it)
Great follow-up to the first book. I love how there is so much of Ringer in this book and we get to know her back story and what she had to go through to get to where she is. We also learn a little bit more about the Others and why they are there and what their ultimate plan is. I can't wait to see how this series will conclude.
