Product Description

Cassie isn't sure if she is the last human on Earth or the galaxy anymore. She's on the run from the beings who only look like humans, those who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. With the 1st wave, only darkness remains, after the 2nd only the lucky escape, and after the third only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one. To stay alone is to stay alive, and Cassie's one driving force to stay alive is to find and save her brother. But when she meets Evan Walker, she isn't sure what is right anymore. . . he may be her only hope for rescuing her brother and saving herself.

Publisher's Description

"Remarkable, not-to-be-missed-under-any-circumstances."—Entertainment Weekly (Grade A)

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.

"Wildly entertaining . . . I couldn't turn the pages fast enough."—Justin Cronin, The New York Times Book Review

"A modern sci-fi masterpiece . . . should do for aliens what Twilight did for vampires."—USAToday.com
