Book Review: The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey

The Infinite Sea (The 5th Wave #2) by Rick Yancey
Genre: Young Adult (Science Fiction)
Date Published: September 16, 2014
Publisher:  Putnam Juvenile

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 is the second book in The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey. Like the first book, this one had a lot of things going on, and also like the first one, it had a lot of dragging time too. I prefer reading from Cassie's point of view over the others. A good portion of this book was told from Ringer's point of view. While I love her attitude and spunk, and I think she's turning into a really interesting character(especially towards the end), her point of view contained a lot of the draggy parts. Until the end that is. The end picked up quite a bit. This author is not afraid of death and killing people off. Don't get attached to anyone. I made that mistake already. These deaths really made you feel the gravity of the situation these people are in though. I don't know how I'm going to wait until May 2016 for the next book! Eeek! Want to read an excerpt?

If you haven't read the first book, check out my review below!!

Rick is a native Floridian and a graduate of Roosevelt University in Chicago. He earned a B.A. in English which he put to use as a field officer for the Internal Revenue Service. Inspired and encouraged by his wife, he decided his degree might also be useful in writing books and in 2004 he began writing full-time.

Since then he has launched two critically acclaimed series: The Extraordinary Adventures of Alfred Kropp, for young readers, and The Highly Effective Detective, for adults. Both books are set in Knoxville, Tennessee, where Rick lived for ten years before returning to Florida.
