'The 5th Wave' by Rick Yancey is one of my most highly anticipated books of the year. Mark the 7th May 2013 on your calendar and in your diaries now because that's when Penguin will be publishing this title for UK readers to enjoy.
Here's the incredible trailer and synopsis of the book:
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.
