OH MY GOD THIS BOOK!!!!

Blurb:

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.

Just one word.

Evan.

Evan

EVAN

EVAN!

Oh my god this book was just… There are no words and no air!

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Seriously this book was just perfectly flawless. Everything about it. I can’t even fault it!

The Infinite Sea picks up not long after The 5th Wave’s jaw dropping finale. Cassie and the group (minus Evan) have made it to their rendezvous point in an old abandoned hotel. Supplies are low, Zombie is injured, Cassie wants to wait as long as she can for Evan because he promised her he would always find her and Ringer has just about had enough of Cassie waiting on him.

Ringer decides to go it alone and she is followed by Teacup (who she mistakenly shoots, thinking she’s a Silencer) The pair are captured by Vosch and Ringer is forced to comply to his rules.

They mutate her, make her a super powered human and there she falls hard and fast for her guard Razor. But is he all he seems to be?

Back in the hotel, Zombie is getting worse, his wound isn’t healing as much as the others would like and he’s weak. Worse yet, Evan still hasn’t arrived and the others want to move on.

Then there’s Evan himself; Where is he? Is he alive? (dur of course he is haha) and more importantly is he on his way to Cassie? Well he was. Until he’s found by another Alien, Grace (who is MENTAL!) And she tries, unsuccessfully, to get him to sleep with her like the last time they were together. With a bit of violence from Evan he manages to escape and ends up at the rendezvous point where he finds Cassie and the others.

But he’s injured too and in no fit state to move anywhere until he’s healed.

Then there’s an unwelcome guest at the hotel, well two unwelcome guests and the group has to fight to stay alive.

Oh and the newest weapon in the Aliens midst?

Innocent children with a bomb.

The bomb is in their mouth and is activated by CO2 (breath basically)

What better way than to get rid of humans than to use bombed up children?

Then of course there’s another huge finale and I swear Rick Yancey ends his books and does things that make us bite our nails in anticipation.

I DO NOT WANT TO WAIT FOR THE NEXT BOOK!

A whole freaking year!

This book was so similar in its style to The 5th Wave, started off a bit slow, tensed up in the middle and went epic at the end, that I thought it was a brilliant sequel in the trilogy.

I loved the duel POV’s, although it does you leave you guessing as to who it is sometimes.

Where the first book centred around Main Character Cassie, in this book she took a back seat and became a supporting character to Ringer.

Ringer.

Damn that girl.

She is so awesome and kickass and strong.

She falls hard and fast for her guard Razor and I really really really liked him and WHY RICK YANCEY WHY DID YOU DO THAT?!

But Evan.

Evan will always be in my heart,

He’s created a such a brilliant dystopian world. This book is hard to categorises as it falls into a lot of them. Although its YA it could just as easily be in the Sci Fi adult section in bookstores.

Everything Rick Yancey writes is visually perfect and I cannot wait for The 5th Wave to hit movie screens. I want it to live up to my visual.

I want the third book now but alas I have to wait until next year!

Seriously read these books. You will not be disappointed when you do.

5 out 5 stars
