The blockbuster bestseller comes to the big screen!

"Remarkable, not-to-be-missed-under-any-circumstances."—Entertainment Weekly
"A modern sci-fi masterpiece . . ."—

The Passage meets Ender's Game in the first book in an epic series by 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.

The 5th Wave (The 5th Wave, #1) by Rick Yancey is one of the best alien invasion books I have read. I didn't watch the movie so I don't have this to compare it to so I am really glad. I usually like the books better anyway. This book grabbed me from the first paragraph in the way the writing sucked me in, made me feel I was the person and feeling and doing the things she was doing. It was crazy. I don't think I will watch the movie now because it might destroy the feelings I have that have been seeped into place from this book. It was so good, I feel like I lived through it, my mind struggled with it. Wow, great and terrible ride but loved it.
