Waiting on Wednesday: The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

A weekly feature showcasing upcoming books that we want in our hot little hands right now! Thanks to Jill at Breaking the Spine for hosting this feature. Be sure to head over there to check out more books to add to your wishlist!

Ummm... The Passage meets Ender's Game? Yes, please. Sold! The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey sounds spooky and awesome!

Release Date - 5/7/13


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.

Be sure to pop over next week to see what else we are ardently (yet patiently...sort of) waiting for!
