"Remarkable, not-to-be-missed-under-any-circumstances."
Entertainment Weekly

“It has the dark, swoopy adrenaline of The Hunger Games, but the elegiac tone of The Road. Who cares what shelf you find it on? Just read it.”
—EW.com

“Makes for an exhilarating reading experience.”
—Tor.com

“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

"Step aside, Katniss."
The Cleveland Plain Dealer

"Action-packed intrigue."
—MTV.com

*"Gripping!"
Publishers Weekly, *starred review*

*"Nothing short of amazing!"
Kirkus Reviews, *starred review*

*"Yancey's heartfelt, violent, paranoid epic, filled with big heroics and bigger surprises, is part War of the Worlds, part Starship Troopers, part Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and part The Stand . . . a sure thing for reviewers and readers alike."
Booklist *starred review*

"This is DAMN and WOW territory.  Quite simply, one of the best books I've read in years."
—Melissa Marr, New York Times bestselling author

"Breathtakingly fast-paced and original, The 5th Wave is a reading tsunami that grabs hold and won't let go.  A postapocalyptic alien invasion story with a smart, vulnerable heroine."
—Melissa De La Cruz, New York Times bestselling author of the Blue Bloods series

"A fantastic read. The 5th Wave is an electrifying page-turner."
Kathy Reichs, New York Times bestselling author

"Prepare to set everything else aside when you launch into this one. The break-neck pace and high stakes will draw you in, but it's the characters who will keep you turning pages. It's been a long time since I've read a story this compelling."
Cinda Williams Chima, New York Times bestselling author
