"Remarkable, not-to-be-missed-under-any-circumstances."—Entertainment Weekly (Grade A)
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.

This book had me from the beginning. Fast paced yet still able to keep you connected to the characters. It's truly a thought provoking story - what if aliens did exist? What if they showed up one day and just parked their mothership above Earth? What would you do? What would any of us do? Scary and yet poignant.
THIS IS THE BEST BOOK EVER
This book is so amazing it was enlightening,like aliens are probably out there and coming to either meet or destroy us make, peace or conquer us you get it, soooo... yeah this is definitely a must read!!!
