How do you rid the earth of seven billion humans? Rid the humans of their humanity.
Cassie Sullivan and her companions lived through the Others' four waves of destruction. Now, with the human race nearly exterminated and the 5th Wave rolling across the landscape, they face a choice: brace for winter and hope for Evan Walker's return, or set out in search of other survivors before the enemy closes in. Because the next attack is more than possible - it's inevitable.
No one can anticipate the depths to which the Others will sink - nor the heights to which humanity will rise . . .

Like the first book, this book is told in sections and each section is from a different POV. Much of the book is told from Ringer’s POV this time. We also hear from Evan quite a bit. There are some random small sections from other side characters as well. For example we here from Poundcake about his past (which I felt was very manipulative given how quickly his situation changed).
The book starts out with Evan MIA and Cassie and crew trying to find a safe place to stay for a longer period of time. The book doesn’t progress a ton from there. We do find out Evan’s situation but our characters never really make progress on finding a safe haven. Quickly the story completely leaves the majority of our characters stranded while we delve into a side story about what happened to Ringer and Teacup.
As with the the first book (which ended up revealing that aliens were living in human hosts) this book also ends with a big reveal. This reveal was again a huge out-of-nowhere reveal that actually made me roll my eyes more than being surprising. The whole thing was very formulaic and this book felt like it was following the exact same plan and pattern as the first book.
The book is a fast read with lots of edge-of-your-seat action scenes. I do enjoy the characters in here and find them engaging. The writing is well done and very descriptive; this makes it fun to read and easy to picture the surroundings.
Overall this was a good continuation of the 5th Wave series but it wasn’t great. I felt like with all the jumping around between POVs the story didn’t actually progress much. I also felt like we really shifted from following Cassie’s story to following Ringer’s and I just don’t enjoy Ringer as a character much. This was an action-packed and engaging read; I was just disappointed at the progress. I plan on finishing up with the last book in the series, The Last Star, soon.
There is still a mixture of styles between each POV and the point of view is unique for each character in the subtle ways they speak, think, and see a situation. The jumps between past and present can be a bit confusing especially when dramatic events happen and you're not quite sure of the time period that we are seeing events occurring. However for the most part the transitions are smooth and will not lose you completely.
Some of Ringers chapters were a bit confusing but she is smarter than me so that's understandable, and I did find a few events that irked me surrounding her plot. At the same time it was fun to contrast her point of view and Cassie's point of view when they spoke to each other. You'll get to see some background on a few of the characters that will show the tragic events they experience as the world fell apart.
I am not quite sure exactly where the next book and last book of the series will lead but I have no doubt I will end up reading this series multiple times. It does seem that three books would not be enough to complete circle so to speak. But that is just a feeling from the pacing of the story as it ended in the second book.
This book is just about the most depressing SF book that I have ever read. About 98% of the human race are dead and the last 2% are not doing very well. Implanted humans are shooting all humans in their assigned areas. The others are putting bombs in children of ages 3 to 5 and letting them loose in inhabited areas.
We spotted the Alien spaceship when it starting braking at Mars orbit. Ten days later, it went into orbit around the Earth. It was the size of Manhattan and circled at 250 miles up. All attempts at communication failed. Then the waves started.
The first wave: an EMP blast worldwide destroyed all electronics and electrical system. A million people were killed in planes and such.
The second wave: the others dropped a rock a mile wide into the ocean. The resulting tsunamis killed half of the world's population who lived within 60 miles of a coastline.
The third wave: the others infected birds with a highly contagious disease with a 97% fatality rate for humans.
The fourth wave: the others implanted many of their kind into humans who started killing unimplanted humans. Trust no one !
The fifth wave: ...
