Book Review: The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey

The sequel to The Fifth Wave does not disappoint. In addition to having lots of fighting and action sequences, we get to know an expanded universe as we get inside the heads of new characters- people like Ringer, and Poundcake. Plot wise, this sequel has a huge twist at the end- one that redefines what it means to be a survivor of the war.

The only complaint I had was that there was too little time given to the main characters from The Fifth Wave. This is largely Ringer's story, and although her POV was gripping and well written, I still wanted more time with Evan and Cassie. There is a lot less romance in this version, as well.

But clearly, I loved it. It was an amazing follow up- pretty much everything I'd hoped for. Five stars, all the way.
