The Last Star by Rick Yancey: WOW

The Last Star by Rick Yancey is a book that I am so, so, so excited for 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!

Author: Rick Yancey

Publication Date: May 24, 2016

Summary (from Goodreads):

The enemy is Other. The enemy is us.

They’re down here, they’re up there, they’re nowhere. They want the Earth, they want us to have it. They came to wipe us out, they came to save us.

But beneath these riddles lies one truth: Cassie has been betrayed. So has Ringer. Zombie. Nugget. And all 7.5 billion people who used to live on our planet. Betrayed first by the Others, and now by ourselves.

In these last days, Earth’s remaining survivors will need to decide what’s more important: saving themselves…or saving what makes us human.


Book Quotes: The Last Star by RIck Yancey

Love is forever. If it wasn’t, it wouldn’t be love. The world is beautiful. If it wasn’t, it wouldn’t be the world.

Some things down to the smallest of things, are worth the sum of all things.

Really, science is wonderful, but why does it tend to suck all the joyous mystery from the world?

    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
