The Infinite Sea / Richard Yancey / 421 pages
This second book in the Fifth Wave series is riveting as it examines what it means to be human. After the apocalyptic five waves of tragedy vastly reduced earth's populations; young children were turned into robotic soldiers; and certain individuals were inhabited by the alien force, a ragtag group of survivors heroically fight to reclaim their civilization. Cassie Sullivan and her companions face seemingly insurmountable odds. Children are implanted with bombs activated by a human's carbon dioxide exhalations. Evan Walker must be eliminated. Can Cassie and her friends succeed in this ultimate battle between life and death, hope and despair, and love and hate?
