"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

Good read so far
I'm halfway to the book so far and have really enjoyed it so far. It doesn't hurt that my last name is Parish and that I was stationed at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base at AFIT and NASIC (formerly NAIC, FTD) for four years about 15 years ago. By the way FTD was where the UFO study Project Bluebook was based out of in the 1960s and maybe early 70s. We joked about finding aliens in the basement but I never saw any.
Outstanding, scary, exciting story!!!
I was hooked from the first page, PLUS I downloaded the book from Audible so that when I couldn't read it I was listening to it! Just finished it this morning and I have to say WAS THAT IT?!? (In a good way) There HAS to be a sequel.... Pleeeeeaaassseee?
Just the Sample
Well if I may say so, the sample of this novel has gotten me hooked. There is such an aura of mystery and suspense and I can't wait to read the rest of this wonderfully adept story!
