The Passage meets Ender’s Game in an epic new series 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.
Expected Publication Date: May 7th, from Dutton
Why I Cannot Wait For This Book: Every now and again, i'm in the mood for a good thriller, and this book sounds like a mix of that with a bit of a dystopian and sci-fi feel to it. I've heard nothing but great things about this book, and as a blogger; I feel like NOT having read any Rick Yancey yet is a bit of a crime.
