The Fifth Wave: By Rick Yancey

Hey readers, Happy New Year!

I have a great new Sci-Fi book to share with you all. The Fifth Wave is a book I've heard about for a while now and I have finally picked it up.  I decided to read this book due to the fact that I realized the movie is coming out soon and I thought I should give the book a try first before I went and saw the movie. Because like we all know, no movie can ever live up to the wonders of a book.

The First Wave cut out their power, technology, and anything that ran on electricity or batteries.  It was all gone, totally wiped out. The Second Wave earth quakes and tsunamis ravaged the coast and destroyed all the major cities and flooded the coasts. The Third Wave was the blood plague. The disease killed most of the world's population. The only ones that survived were those who were immune or survived by luck. The Fourth Wave was where the motto "trust no one" came into play. You couldn't tell a human from an "Other".

Since the "Others", or aliens, arrived, the world has gone into complete and total turmoil. Cassie who lost her mother to the plague was left to fend for herself after her fathers death and after her brother was taken. She promised her brother, Sammy, that she would get him back. With the constant issue of trust, Cassie never knows who's human and who's not. There is also constant danger of being killed by others. When Cassie is shot in the leg by an "Other" she has no choice but to put her trust in Evan Walker; the person who could be her only chance of finding her brother. She is confused but must do what she has to do to keep her promise.

I hope you all enjoy this riveting Sci-Fi filled, action packed, romantic book and that you read it before seeing the movie that comes out later this month. I know you won't regret it.
