If you’re like me and prefer to have all your books in the same format, then today is a great day to be a fan of Rick Yancey’s Fifth Wave series. I came into this series late and was given the first book as a gift in paperback. Ever since I’ve been waiting for the following books to release and now it’s time for The Last Star!
A fascinating series about a race of aliens called The Others, the 5th Wave series is about the waves of an alien invasion of Earth, each killing more of Earth’s population of humans. Beginning in book one, The 5th Wave, we join main character Cassie Sullivan and other young survivors of the first four waves as they attempt to survive the Others, who are working toward complete human extinction.
The final volume, out today in paperback, is wrapping up the final story and answering the question about what’s more important: Earth’s survivors “saving themselves…or saving what makes us human.”
The enemy is Other. The enemy is us.
They’re down here, they’re up there, they’re nowhere. They want the Earth, they want us to have it. They came to wipe us out, they came to save us.
But beneath these riddles lies one truth: Cassie has been betrayed. So has Ringer. Zombie. Nugget. And all 7.5 billion people who used to live on our planet. Betrayed first by the Others, and now by ourselves.
In these last days, Earth’s remaining survivors will need to decide what’s more important: saving themselves…or saving what makes us human.
As a special treat to celebrate the release of the paperback edition of The Last Star, there’s a giveaway for anyone who’s a fan, who might be a fan, or anyone who needs to be a fan. Check out the Rafflecopter below for entry details.
