Overview

The riveting follow-up to the New York Times bestselling The 5th Wave, hailed by Justin Cronin as “wildly entertaining.”
 
How do you rid the Earth of seven billion humans? Rid the humans of their humanity.

Surviving the first four waves was nearly impossible. Now Cassie Sullivan finds herself in a new world, a world in which the fundamental trust that binds us together is gone. As the 5th Wave rolls across the landscape, Cassie, Ben, and Ringer are forced to confront the Others’ ultimate goal: the extermination of the human race.

Cassie and her friends haven’t seen the depths to which the Others will sink, nor have the Others seen the heights to which humanity will rise, in the ultimate battle between life and death, hope and despair, love and hate.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

"More aliens! More mistrust! More betrayal! More explosions and mayhem! Twists, reversals, surprises!" These are the teasers that author Rick Yancey tempted us with about the still mysterious second installment of his addictively popular 5th Wave series. For readers who thought that 16-year-old Cassie Sullivan could not endure more emotional tsunamis, The Infinite Sea will be like a middle of the night wake-up call. The lynchpin novel of a trilogy that just won't let you go. (P.S. Meanwhile, a movie of the series title novel is brewing, with Chloë Grace Moretz slated for the starring role.)

School Library Journal
11/01/2014
Gr 9 Up—The majority of the first-person narration in this second book in "The 5th Wave" series (Putnam) shifts between Ringer, a beautiful teen with deadly aim, and tough-but-tender Cassie, who thought she was the lone surviving human. A third-person viewpoint is used for Evan, an alien who has shifted his allegiance in the face of true love and Ben (Zombie), badly injured but still in command of the ragtag paramilitary group of creatively nicknamed children and teens. The action springs back and forth in place and time as readers learn why Poundcake no longer speaks, how Evan is related to super-strong Grace, and why chess is important to Ringer. The "infinite sea" can be made of snow, of tears, of the floaty feeling of semi-consciousness, and, more than once, it is a sea of blood. Yancey keeps the pressure on, as Cassie and Ben seek to protect the younger humans and outsmart the devious Silencers. Ringer struggles to maintain her humanity in the face of nanotechnology and Evan struggles with turning his back on what his species has been working toward for thousands of years. Yancey's writing can be melodramatic ("The world will be consumed by the crushing dark"; "The Others didn't invent death; they just perfected it"), but will keep action-craving readers enthralled. With a 5th Wave movie in the works, and alien questions left unanswered, expect readers to be interested in this series for the foreseeable future.—Maggie Knapp, Trinity Valley School, Fort Worth, TX
VOYA, December 2014 (Vol. 37, No. 5) - Katherine Noone
In his afterword, Yancey admits to having struggled with this sequel to The 5th Wave (Penguin, 2013/Voya June 2013). The reader may struggle too at times, a year after being absorbed in the first volume. The twists that enriched that story are twisted again in this middle volume of the series. Short chapters with changing viewpoints challenge the reader to untangle who is narrating. The first novel is definitely necessary for understanding this one, though it may take a minute to recall that Zombie is Ben and Nugget is Sam. Cassie and her companions have holed up in an abandoned hotel near the destroyed alien army base, waiting for Evan Walker. Ringer, whose point of view dominates the rest of the novel, is captured while out scouting. She craves games of chess; Commander Vosch supplies them, in life as well as on a chessboard. He has her surgically enhanced, then double-crosses her to allow her to test her new powers. Dizzying moves leave a trail of bodies. There never were any aliens, Ringer concludes, only enhanced humans. But Vosch is still a mystery to her as he allows her to escape a second time. The mind games he plays with her may leave some readers feeling excluded. Fans will relish the charged interplay of suspicion and attraction among Cassie, Ben, and Evan early on. Trust no one, Ringer tells them. Who are the Others, really? Why does Vosch want to enhance humans? A small band from the last humans on Earth and a large band of fans await the answers. Reviewer: Katherine Noone; Ages 12 to 18.
Kirkus Reviews
2014-09-16
When aliens attack: the end of the world as we know it. Book 1 of Yancey's series saw 95 percent of the human population wiped out in a brutal alien attack that coordinated tsunamis, a horrific plague and teen soldiers bent on murdering any survivors. Just when readers might think it couldn't get worse, it does: The extraterrestrials bent on taking over Earth are now implanting carbon-dioxide-triggered bombs inside the throats of young children in order to wipe out any survivors. The first are easily extinguished in the prologue in an ominous tableau that no doubt is meant to foreshadow what will befall Cassie, Ben and the teen survivors from The 5th Wave (2013). What follows is a terse, streamlined volume packed with action and violence that will keep readers on the edges of their seats. At first it's hard to distinguish which character is narrating each sequence, particularly since Ringer, a secondary character in the first installment, takes over much of the page count in this installment. Her nickname says it all: She's tough, fearless, an expert marksman and a survivor—and the bad guys particularly have it in for her. Everything culminates in a 180-degree reversal that turns the series' cosmos on its end and will no doubt have readers impatiently screaming for the third. A roller-coaster ride of a sequel. (Science fiction. 14-18)

Read an Excerpt

1.

THE WORLD IS a clock winding down.

I hear it in the wind’s icy fingers scratching against the window. I smell it in the mildewed carpeting and the rotting wallpaper of the old hotel. And I feel it in Teacup’s chest as she sleeps. The hammering of her heart, the rhythm of her breath, warm in the freezing air, the clock winding down.

Across the room, Cassie Sullivan keeps watch by the window. Moonlight seeps through the tiny crack in the curtains behind her, lighting up the plumes of frozen breath exploding from her mouth. Her little brother sleeps in the bed closest to her, a tiny lump beneath the mounded covers. Window, bed, back again, her head turns like a pendulum swinging. The turning of her head, the rhythm of her breath, like Nugget’s, like Teacup’s, like mine, marking the time of the clock winding down.

I ease out of bed. Teacup moans in her sleep and burrows deeper under the covers. The cold clamps down, squeezing my chest, though I’m fully dressed except for my boots and the parka, which I grab from the foot of the bed. Sullivan watches as I pull on the boots, then when I go to the closet for my rucksack and rifle. I join her by the window. I feel like I should say something before I leave. We might not see each other again.

“So this is it,” she says. Her fair skin glows in the milky light. The spray of freckles seems to float above her nose and cheeks.

I adjust the rifle on my shoulder. “This is it.”

“You know, Dumbo I get. The big ears. And Nugget, because Sam is so small. Teacup, too. Zombie I don’t get so much—Ben won’t say—and I’m guessing Poundcake has something to do with his roly-poly-ness. But why Ringer?”

I sense where this is going. Besides Zombie and her brother, she isn’t sure of anyone anymore. The name Ringer gives her paranoia a nudge. “I’m human.”

“Yeah.” She looks through the crack in the curtains to the parking lot two stories below, shimmering with ice. “Someone else told me that, too. And, like a dummy, I believed him.”

“Not so dumb, given the circumstances.”

“Don’t pretend, Ringer,” she snaps. “I know you don’t believe me about Evan.”

“I believe you. It’s his story that doesn’t make sense.”

I head for the door before she tears into me. You don’t push Cassie Sullivan on the Evan Walker question. I don’t hold it against her. Evan is the little branch growing out of the cliff that she clings to, and the fact that he’s gone makes her hang on even tighter.

Teacup doesn’t make a sound, but I feel her eyes on me; I know she’s awake. I go back to the bed.

“Take me with you,” she whispers.

I shake my head. We’ve been through this a hundred times. “I won’t be gone long. A couple days.”

“Promise?”

No way, Teacup. Promises are the only currency left. They must be spent wisely. Her bottom lip quivers; her eyes mist. “Hey,” I say softly. “What did I tell you about that, soldier?” I resist the impulse to touch her. “What’s the first priority?”

“No bad thoughts,” she answers dutifully.

“Because bad thoughts do what?”

“Make us soft.”

“And what happens if we go soft?”

“We die.”

“And do we want to die?”

She shakes her head. “Not yet.”

I touch her face. Cold cheek, warm tears. Not yet. With no time left on the human clock, this little girl has probably reached middle age. Sullivan and me, we’re old. And Zombie? The ancient of days.

He’s waiting for me in the lobby, wearing a ski jacket over a bright yellow hoodie, both scavenged from the remains inside the hotel: Zombie escaped from Camp Haven wearing only a flimsy pair of scrubs. Beneath his scruffy beard, his face is the telltale scarlet of fever. The bullet wound I gave him, ripped open in his escape from Camp Haven and patched up by our twelve-year-old medic, must be infected. He leans against the counter, pressing his hand against his side and trying to look like everything’s cool.

“I was starting to think you changed your mind,” Zombie says, dark eyes sparkling as if he’s teasing, though that could be the fever.

I shake my head. “Teacup.”

“She’ll be okay.” To reassure me, he releases his killer smile from its cage. Zombie doesn’t fully appreciate the pricelessness of promises or he wouldn’t toss them out so casually.

“It’s not Teacup I’m worried about. You look like shit, Zombie.”

“It’s this weather. Wreaks havoc on my complexion.” A second smile leaps out at the punch line. He leans forward, willing me to answer with my own. “One day, Private Ringer, you’re going to smile at something I say and the world will break in half.”

“I’m not prepared to take on that responsibility.”

He laughs and maybe I hear a rattle deep in his chest. “Here.” He offers me another brochure of the caverns.

“I have one,” I tell him.

“Take this one, too, in case you lose it.”

“I won’t lose it, Zombie.”

“I’m sending Poundcake with you,” he says.

“No, you’re not.”

“I’m in charge. So I am.”

“You need Poundcake here more than I need him out there.”

He nods. He knew I would say no, but he couldn’t resist one last try. “Maybe we should abort,” he says. “I mean, it isn’t that bad here. About a thousand bedbugs, a few hundred rats, and a couple dozen dead bodies, but the view is fantastic. . .” Still joking, still trying to make me smile. He’s looking at the brochure in his hand. Seventy-four degrees year ’round!

“Until we get snowed in or the temperature drops again. The situation is unsustainable, Zombie. We’ve stayed too long already.”

I don’t get it. We’ve talked this to death and now he wants to keep beating the corpse. I wonder about Zombie sometimes.

“We have to chance it, and you know we can’t go in blind,” I go on. “The odds are there’re other survivors hiding in those caves and they may not be ready to throw out the welcome mat, especially if they’ve met any of Sullivan’s Silencers.”

“Or recruits like us,” he adds.

“So I’ll scope it out and be back in a couple of days.”

“I’m holding you to that promise.”

“It wasn’t a promise.”

There’s nothing left to say. There’re a million things left to say. This might be the last time we see each other, and he’s thinking it, too, because he says, “Thank you for saving my life.”

“I put a bullet in your side and now you might die.”

He shakes his head. His eyes sparkle with fever. His lips are gray. Why did they have to name him Zombie? It’s like an omen. The first time I saw him, he was doing knuckle push-ups in the exercise yard, face contorted with anger and pain, blood pooling on the asphalt beneath his fists. Who is that guy? I asked. His name is Zombie. He fought the plague and won, they told me, and I didn’t believe them. Nobody beats the plague. The plague is a death sentence. And Reznik the drill sergeant bending over him, screaming at the top of his lungs, and Zombie in the baggy blue jumpsuit, pushing himself past the point where one more push is impossible. I don’t know why I was surprised when he ordered me to shoot him so he could keep his unkeepable promise to Nugget. When you look death in the eye and death blinks first, nothing seems impossible.

Even mind reading. “I know what you’re thinking,” he says.

“No. You don’t.”

“You’re wondering if you should kiss me good-bye.”

“Why do you do that?” I ask. “Flirt with me.”

He shrugs. His grin is crooked, like his body leaning against the counter.

“It’s normal. Don’t you miss normal?” he asks. Eyes digging deep into mine, always looking for something, I’m never sure what. “You know, drive-thrus and movies on a Saturday night and ice cream sandwiches and checking your Twitter feed?”

I shake my head. “I didn’t Twitter.”

“Facebook?”

I’m getting a little pissed. Sometimes it’s hard for me to imagine how Zombie made it this far. Pining for things we lost is the same as hoping for things that can never be. Both roads dead-end in despair. “It’s not important,” I say. “None of that matters.”

Zombie’s laugh comes from deep in his gut. It bubbles to the surface like the superheated air of a hot spring, and I’m not pissed anymore. I know he’s putting on the charm, and somehow knowing what he’s doing does nothing to blunt the effect. Another reason Zombie’s a little unnerving.

“It’s funny,” he says. “How much we thought all of it did. You know what really matters?” He waits for my answer. I feel as if I’m being set up for a joke, so I don’t say anything. “The tardy bell.”

Now he’s forced me into a corner. I know there’s manipulation going on here, but I feel helpless to stop it. “Tardy bell?”

“Most ordinary sound in the world. And when all of this is done, there’ll be tardy bells again.” He presses the point. Maybe he’s worried I don’t get it. “Think about it! When a tardy bell rings again, normal is back. Kids rushing to class, sitting around bored, waiting for the final bell, and thinking about what they’ll do that night, that weekend, that next fifty years. They’ll be learning like we did about natural disasters and disease and world wars. You know: ‘When the aliens came, seven billion people died,’ and then the bell will ring and everybody will go to lunch and complain about the soggy Tater Tots. Like, ‘Whoa, seven billion people, that’s a lot. That’s sad. Are you going to eat all those Tots?’ That’s normal. That’s what matters.”

So it wasn’t a joke. “Soggy Tater Tots?”

“Okay, fine. None of that makes sense. I’m a moron.”

He smiles. His teeth seem very white surrounded by the scruffy beard, and now, because he suggested it, I think about kissing him and if the stubble on his upper lip would tickle.

I push the thought away. Promises are priceless, and a kiss is a kind of promise, too.

    This was a very good sequel to the fifth wave. It is a rarity for sequels to outdo the first book in a series and I think this was the case. This book had a little less action than the first but I liked it because it foccused more on deatails and the thought process of the charactors. I have a comment for the review on the violence and language. Compared to other young adult fiction the language was not that bad. If somebody killed the whole world your not going to say, "I really did not appreciate that you just slaughtered my entire family." Even myself, having never uttered a single swear word would have cussed. Additionally, the violence isn't so bad. In comparison to Divergent and the Hunger games it isn't any more gory. I am not going to live the rest of my life scarred. I reccomend this book.

    To Anonymous,
       I find is ironic that you choose banned book week to write a review about why a book is banned in your school. I also find it humorous that your ranting is so poorly written.
     " With parents so many times absent parents, the conduct and morality of our students have declined so rapidly,
    sometimes as teachers we feel like physiologists and police officers, checking for weapons, thwarting revenge plots,
     breaking up fist fights in the halls (girls and boys)."
       I'm sure you meant Psychologists or maybe Psychiatrists, but beyond that your rant is hard to read.
    If you choose to read this genre you will find that it is sometimes violent, but if you watch the news you will find that our world is a violent place. This is not new, the world has always been violent.
       Children should be encouraged to read whatever touches their souls. You should put down your sanctimonious torch. Books are not to be banned just because someone gets their panties in a twist about the content. Believe or not teenagers are not in their formative years, they are completely able to choose what they like to read on their own.
    Luckily other schools do not have a philosophy of banning books from young adult readers.This series is well written and connects the reader with the story.

    Parents Beware!

    First off, the author is a gifted writer. There is no question about that and this book has some great writing.

    Now on to the rest: This book has been banned at my school, and this is huge where I am, not only for the foul language, but for the violent content. This was a consensus from parents, the school board, the teaching staff, and the library staff. The book simply is TOO VIOLENT for young adults, more violent than the evening news, or war footage.

    As a former middle school teacher, and current high school teacher, it is my duty to ensure our teenagers, especially those in their early formative years, not only learn, but become strong, conscientious human beings with stable, intelligent minds to make good choices as they grow older. I take this very seriously! With the world as it is, teenagers are swiftly becoming conditioned to violence. With parents so many times absent parents, the conduct and morality of our students have declined so rapidly, sometimes as teachers we feel like physiologists and police officers, checking for weapons, thwarting revenge plots, breaking up fist fights in the halls (girls and boys). Lately, with the Hunger Games and the Fifth Wave, the rise of violence in young adult literature has spiked and with it long-lasting, negative effect on its young readers. Believe me, it's pretty dismal to begin with, but why do authors have this need to outdo each other in writing such violence. Kids killing kids! In the Fifth Wave, which made no sense, the element of slaughter was over the top. We had the plague, then children who became soldiers shooting, maiming, slashing, cutting throats of others. A father of one of my students was especially concerned about this book, and told me it was as real as any scene he's witnessed in Iraq. THE SLAUGHTER OF INNOCENCE and how unemotionally detached the characters are to the act of killing, how it has become a plague that haunts those young soldiers we sent to battle. So as the guardian and teacher of our youth, I ask this question: Just because you can write it, should you?

    Now on to the actual content: I am not against swearing in books. I hear it from students like water running out of their mouths every day, also the viciousness that comes with it, (we still have a huge problem with bullying) but the author has populated the book with such foul language, and so many times, I had to recheck that this isn't an actual memoir of a Iraq soldier. So many f*ck yous, and other curses. Just to show you what I mean: page 161: "F*ck you and the horse you rode on you f*cking alien motherf*cker." Really, do we need to constantly hear children say this in a book? Do they need to say the latter, which is particularly appalling to any mother. (I had to bleat out parts of the words because, even though they are allowed the book to have them, our reviews cannot.)

    I absolutely loved The Fifth Wave so I was eagerly anticipating

    I absolutely loved The Fifth Wave so I was eagerly anticipating the release of The Infinite Sea. For me, the second book in this series didn't measure up to the first book.

    What I loved was the character development that continued in Book 2 and the relationships that evolved. In addition, Yancey is a master at creating tension in a book. The action-packed storyline kept me reading.

    What I didn't like was the lack of plot line. As the story unfolded I was filled with a sense of despair. All the characters face challenges that seem almost impossible to overcome. Perhaps this is the point of the book, though, as they seem to be facing an impossible situation.

    But what I really didn't like in this book was the ending. Without giving anything away, I will just say that the conclusion was abrupt and seemed to be placed in an odd section of the book. I hope there is a third installment in this series (and soon) because as a reader I was left with no sense of closure.

    Despite the negatives, I am looking forward to more in this series. That in itself suggests that The Infinite Sea is a success!

    Possible Spoiler: My guess midway through the book

    What if they lived on Earth originally? The way Vosch said, "Your pathetic stewardship of this planet," or something. Maybe they were exiled away with no bodies, and finally found their way back?

    I wanted to like it, but...

    This book had a lot of content that didn't really forward the plot. I suffered through 250 pages before I became interested in the story. I wonder if this wasn't a decent single novel stretched into a trilogy. I guess we'll never know. I don't know if I'll bother with the third installment.

    There's a certain point where it gets ridicolous.

    These cats have 7 inch di<_>cks? I barely have a 7 inch di<_>ck and I'm nearly 6 feet tall. Also, learn to swear. Seriously. These di<_>cks would be like 2/3 their body length.
