For Cassie Sullivan and the rest of Earth’s remaining human survivors, the situation was already desperate when the 5th Wave hit. It’s about to get worse.

No one yet knows the depths to which Earth’s conquerors—the Others—will sink in order to rid the Earth of the human infestation, nor have they guessed the heights to which the human spirit can reach. Characters introduced in Book One will come to the fore—and others will face the ultimate test.
So I just finished this book and I had to immediately come and write up this review because I have so much to say. First off is that I absolutely disliked this book, it was no way near as good as The 5th Wave. Second is that I doubt I will be reading the third book because this book has made me lose interest. How can it go from being one of your favourite series to one you hate? And if I was doing to Taylor Swift Book Tag then this series would be the one to match the song: We are never ever getting back together and I'm in no way sorry because this was terrible!

The first one hundred pages dragged on and on and on and on. I felt like it was taking me ages to read and that's not normally a case for me. Some books drag on in place and last for a few pages, but this never seemed to end. Plus nothing happened, like seriously, nothing. I was expecting some sort of tense build up and then something to happen and BAM! That something never came and if I'm being honest, it never came in the entire book.
Also Rick Yancey turned this series from Cassie's story to Ringers, who is a new character that I hate. Actually I should take that back because I didn't like any of the new characters a part from Razor, who if I may say is a little too like Evan (We saw hardly any Evan. BOOOOO!).
While reading the book all I could think was:
Kill Ringer
Kill Ben
Kill Poundcake (He'll never beat Lil' Miss Poundcake from RuPauls Drag Race)
Just kill them all because they all seemed to be a copycat of the original characters (Cassie, Evan, etc.)

While I was reading this short book (which I'm glad was so short because I would've shot myself in the eye if it was any longer) I saw a bunch of reviews from my friends who had enjoyed it and that was because they liked The 5th Wave, but never loved it.
There were a few good points about this book and those were Evan and Cassie. I love them so much and they make the story. If this book didn't even have any Evan or Cassie then it would've been a zero starred book because lets be honest, Cassie and Evan are a lot of our favourite couple.
However, we saw Cassie and Evan for like fifty pages and then it ended with them, which I'm still annoyed at because like I said: THIS IS CASSIE'S STORY!!
Overall, I rated this book a 2.75 out of 5 stars, but my star review may be changed when I have a few moments to calm down.
