The Infinite Sea
Author: Rick Yancey
Genre: Young Adult
Publication Date: 16th September 2014
Goodreads Summary: The riveting follow-up to the New York Times bestselling The 5th Wave, hailed by Justin Cronin as “wildly entertaining.”
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.
[[ Thoughts ]]
So I’m currently doing some work experience at Penguin Children’s and there are currently copies of The Infinite Sea sitting less than 2 metres away from me!! This title has been heavily embargoed so I haven’t even touched a copy yet but I’m so excited for its release. The 5th Wave was such an exhilarating read and was definitely one of my favourite books of 2013. I hope there’s a bit more romance in this book but then again I like the darkness of The 5th Wave. The film rights to The 5th Wave have already been sold and Cassie is to be played by none other than Chloe Grace Moretz! As you can see, a lot of attention has been drawn to this series so I’m confident that The Infinite Sea will be amazing!
What’s everyone else waiting for this week? Any other fans of The 5th Wave out there? Let me know in the comments below!
