Waiting on Wednesday #56: The Last Star by Rick Yancey



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week’s book:

Book cover for The Last Star by Rick Yancey
The Last Star (The 5th Wave #3)
Author: Rick Yancey
Publisher: G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: May 24, 2016

Summary (from Goodreads): We’re here, then we’re gone, and that was true before they came. That’s always been true. The Others didn’t invent death; they just perfected it. Gave death a face to put back in our face, because they knew that was the only way to crush us. It won’t end on any continent or ocean, no mountain or plain, jungle or desert. It will end where it began, where it had been from the beginning, on the battlefield of the last beating human heart.

Master storyteller Rick Yancey invokes triumph, loss, and unrelenting action as the fate of the planet is decided in the conclusion to this epic series.

I am so, so, so excited for this one! I absolutely loved the other books in The 5th Wave series, and have been waiting for this final instalment. I am certain that this will be the perfect conclusion to the trilogy, and I can’t wait to experience it for myself!

    I do have the first book but never found the time to read it. I might wait until all the books are out and then pick it up. It certainly enjoys very good reviews.

    I love the covers of this series. I have mixed feelings about this series, mostly due to the mixed reactions I’ve heard from others. But I’m still willing to give this a go. #dontjudgeabookbyitsmovie
