Product description

Following the major motion picture release starring Chloe Grace Moretz, the heart-stopping finale to the bestselling 5th Wave series. We’re here, then we’re gone, and that was true before they came. That’s always been true. The others didn’t invent death; they just perfected it. Gave death a face to put back in our face, because they knew that was the only way to crush us. It won’t end on any continent or ocean, no mountain or plain, jungle or desert. It will end where it began, where it had been from the beginning, on the battlefield of the last beating human heart. “Remarkable, not-to-be-missed-under-any-circumstances…Just read it”. (Entertainment Weekly). How do you rid the earth of seven billion humans? Rid the humans of their humanity. Cassie Sullivan and her companions lived through the Others’ four waves of destruction. Now, with the human race nearly exterminated and the 5th Wave rolling across the landscape, they brace themselves. For the next attack is more than possible – it’s inevitable. No one can anticipate the depths to which the others will sink – nor the heights to which humanity will rise. The Final wave is coming. Be prepared. Praise for The 5th Wave and The Infinite Sea: “The next Hit.” (Daily Mail). “A modern sci-fi Masterpiece…” (USA Today). “The pace is relentless” (Heat). “Action-Packed”. ( “Chilling”. (Sun). “This gut-wrenching sequel to The 5th Wave careens on a violent course of non-stop action.” (Publishers Weekly, starred review). “Wildly entertaining…I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough” (Justin Cronin, The New York Times Book Review). “Nothing short of Amazing”. (Kirkus (starred review)). “This book’s Scary!” (Teen Now (5 starred review)). “This is Damn and WOW territory. Quite simply, one of the best books I’ve read in years.” (Melissa Marr, New York Times bestselling author). ”...a twisty survival story that borrows elements from romance, horror and dystopian fiction.” (Wall Street Journal). “Breathtakingly fast-paced and original, the 5th Wave is a reading tsunami that grabs hold and won’t let go.” (Melissa De La Cruz, New York Times bestselling author of the Blue Bloods series). “An epic sci-fi adventure about a terrifying alien invasion. You’ll read it in one sitting.” (Bookseller). “Heartfelt, violent, paranoid epic, filled with big heroics and bigger surprises…a sure thing for reviewers and readers alike. ” (Booklist (starred review)). “A gripping SF trilogy about an Earth decimated by an alien invasion…the question of what it means to be human is at the forefront.” (Publishers Weekly).
