The Infinite Sea
|Source: Publisher Website|
“What does it take to rid humans of their humanity?” In The Infinite Sea, Rick Yancey continues his exploration of this theme that he began in The 5th Wave. As the story begins, Cassie and her crew are holed up in an abandoned hotel, keeping watch for an enemy—the Others—that could close in on them at any second. When the attack finally does come, their stronghold is destroyed, their group scattered in the wilderness. Some end up in the hands of the Others as test subjects, while the rest struggle to survive. As with The 5th Wave, the protagonists are well-drawn, and the adventure they helm is full of non-stop action, suspense, romantic tension, and entertaining dialogue. Like the first book, there is also strong language, violence, and even a love scene, but nothing is graphically described. Recommended for fans of the preceding volume, The 5th Wave, and other post-apocalyptic fiction, ages 16-18.
