How do you rid the Earth of seven billion humans? Rid the humans of their humanity.
Surviving the first four waves was nearly impossible. Now Cassie Sullivan finds herself in a new world, a world in which the fundamental trust that binds us together is gone. As the 5th Wave rolls across the landscape, Cassie, Ben, and Ringer are forced to confront the Others’ ultimate goal: the extermination of the human race.
Cassie and her friends haven’t seen the depths to which the Others will sink, nor have the Others seen the heights to which humanity will rise, in the ultimate battle between life and death, hope and despair, love and hate.
The Infinite Sea was a rush. It was high action from start to finish, and I could not put it down for the life of me. There were unseeable twists and turns, as well as those moments where you wish you could yell at the charater and tell them something they don’t know, but of course it’s a book so they can’t hear you.
There are two “books” in The Infinite Sea. The first book follows Cassie, Evan, Zombie, and the recruits (minus Ringer becuase she goes off on a mission). The second book follows Ringer, which I didn’t think I’d like, but I ended up loving more than I can possibly tell you. And the ending of that section tore my heart out. I mean, just when you think there are no good people left, one comes and rips out your heartstrings.
Rick Yancey has a way of building intricate backstories into the book that is absolutly beautiful. It builds this connection between you and a character, like you have known them your whole life. They seem like real people rather than characters written in the pages of a book.
If you like sci-fi and/or dystopia, this series is definately a series you need to read. And like I said in my review of The 5th Wave, if you are someone that wants to try a dystopia series, this is a great one to start with.
I am going to give The Infinite Sea five out of five stars! I can’t wait to see what happens in The Last Star!
