The 5th Wave is Coming . . .


Unless you've been hiding under a rock for the last few months I'm sure you've already seen the buzz that is starting to build around the first book in Rick Yancey's new series. The 5th Wave looks set to be a fantastic dystopian thriller and I can't wait to read it! Thankfully we don't have long to wait and the book is released in the UK next week (on the 7th of May).

The Passage meets The Hunger Games in The 5th Wave - a gripping new series from Carnegie-shortlisted Rick Yancey.

THE 1st WAVE
Took out half a million people.

THE 2nd WAVE
Put that number to shame.

THE 3rd WAVE
Lasted a little longer. Twelve weeks . . . Four billion dead.

IN THE 4th WAVE,
You can't trust that people are still people.

AND THE 5th WAVE?
No one knows.
But it's coming.

On a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs.
Runs from the beings that only look human, who have scattered Earth's last survivors.

To stay alone is to stay alive, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan may be her only hope.

Now Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.

Visit Rick Yancey's website or The 5th Wave website for more information.

Now have a look at the fab teaser trailer:
