stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and

When I got to read an advance copy of this book I was so excited because I heard amazing things about this book. It had everything I loved: Science Fiction, Romance, and Action.

In The 5th Wave Aliens have invaded earth and has left only 3% of the population left. One of the lucky ones was sixteen year old Cassie. She went through all Four Waves and is trying to stay alive. The one thing Cassie goes on is the promise to her little brother Sammy to come and find him. Then after an encounter with an assassin, Cassie meets Evan Walker who saves her and helps her regain her health. He is an interesting character himself since he has so many secrets and he could also help Cassie find her little brother.
These aliens are for sure the most destructive and they will definitely catch your attention while reading. All this adrenaline while reading was making me go crazy since I was a bit confused with the many point of views but each one is important because of the things that are beginning to happen during the book. Cassie is a really tough character who many can identify with from the beginning. When she meets Evan, a lot of interesting things happen and you couldn't help falling in love with him since he can be so lovable. Evan is another strong character who is strong and shy but dont under estimate him since he does have secrets of his own.
The secondary characters also make an impression since we follow Sammy (Cassie's little brother) and also a leader where Sammy is being held. These characters have a lot to say since they go through a lot of training and many other things. Poor Sammy. I really did like the ending since it left you wonder what is going to happen after so much has been revealed.
Rick Yancey knows how to grab your attention with this high thriller and making us wonder what will happen next. This book was exciting and flawless. It was one rollercoaster ride that I never wanted to get off since all the twists and turns have you on the edge of your seats. To even wonder what was going on I had to re-read some parts because I did not believe this was happening. I need the next book immediately!! 2014 hurry !!
