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.

4.5 starsWhy did I put this book off for so long?! I LOVED IT! I started listening to the audiobook, but it was so good that I was to impatient to listen to the audiobook, so I borrowed an e-copy from the library. If you're a fan of post-apocalyptic fiction like I am, give The 5th Wave a shot.
Note: I just started reading the Infinite sea and remembered that I never got around of reviewing the 5th wave. So there you go: I both did and didn't like this one.

**SPOILER FREE** While I did like this book, part of me felt like it was just another end of the world survival, cant trust the government, so ill try to expose them and make an insane dangerous get away at the end. 1st Wave: Total Darkness 2nd Wave: Tsunami 3rd Wave: Plague 4th Wave: Silencers...
