Product description

Brilliant apocalyptic fantasy to rival The Hunger Games! Aliens, plague and a terrible survival pact: kill or be killed. Will Cassie do it?

After the first wave, only darkness remains. After the second, third and fourth, only the unlucky survive. Now it’s the dawn of the fifth wave. A terrible game of kill or be killed, set up by Them: the beings who only look human. To stay alone is to stay alive – until Cassie meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and remote, Evan may be her only hope. Now she must choose whether to live or die, to give up or to get up. So Cassie Sullivan gets up. With its M16-toting heroine and murderous aliens, this book will give you the most thrilling fright of your life.

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

“A modern sci-fi masterpiece… should do for aliens what Twilight did for vampires.” USAToday.com
