The 5th Wave

Rick Yancey

Yancey (The Monstrumologist 2009) opens a gripping new series set after the Earth has been decimated by a crushing alien invasion. Sixteen-year-old Cassie survived the first four gruesome waves of the attack, but now her father is dead and she is separated from her little brother Sam. It's the dawn of the 5th wave and Cassie will do anything to find her brother and escape the "Silencer" trying to kill her. Her grim and solitary existence changes when Cassie is rescued by hunky, but mysterious Evan Walker, who may be her only hope for rescuing her brother and saving herself.
