If you haven’t yet read Rick Yancey’s YA sci-fi thriller The 5th Wave, can I ask what you’re waiting for? Because it’s really that good. (Read Sara Vilkomerson’s review here.) I’m fairly confident I wouldn’t have even survived the first wave, let alone the fifth one. And equally so—due to my impatience—I’m not sure I am capable of surviving the wait for the much-anticipated sequel. (And yes, I realize that’s dramatic. But again, it’s that good, you guys.) The follow-up to Yancy’s Wave isn’t due until May 6, 2014, but I can at least whet your appetite with the title. Drumroll please…
Book 2 in the series will be titled: THE INFINITE SEA. Here, Yancey tells us why he chose that name and teases what he can about the book. READ FULL STORY
I should have learned by now that openly declaring my skepticism about a book pretty much ensures that it will become one of my absolute favorites. That’s exactly what happened when I was handed The 5th Wave earlier this year. But boy, was I wrong. (And don’t just take my word for it.) So stop reading this post and go get a copy of The 5th Wave right now. I’ll wait…. Anyway, since Rick Yancey’s sci-fi thriller is out today, we caught up with the author so he could answer some of our burning questions. Check out his answers after the jump. READ FULL STORY
It seems like the majority of high-concept young-adult novels boast some comparison to Harry Potter, Twilight, or The Hunger Games. Judging from the pre-publication buzz for Rick Yancey’s The 5th Wave (May 7), this alien invasion page-turner has a chance at joining those series in the pantheon of not just popular but ubiquitous YA franchises. There’s an elaborate online campaign for the novel; more than 5,000 Goodreads users have already marked it as “to read”; and the early reviews have been very positive, drawing comparisons to Starship Troopers, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and Stephen King’s The Stand.
The 5th Wave follows Cassie, whose parents are both dead and brother is missing, as extra-terrestrial attackers track down the world’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.
