There are so many twists and turns in this one that aren't as easy to spot as in The 5th Wave which gave you a lot of everything right off the bat through switching perspectives. This one slowly leads you to the conclusions but gives you enough along the way that you can come to a couple conclusions but also not be completely on the mark. It is an exciting and inventive way to continue along with the story.
I thought there were a couple too many povs in this one though. I feel like we saw a lot of the same scenes happen through other people's eyes which took away from the story for me. As well, the length of the povs was a bit blah for me too. I found myself dreading Ringer's last pov chapter because it was a third of the entire book! We learned a LOT in it but it was still daunting going into it because of the length.
It also felt like the story was semi told out of order? I was okay with Ringer's initial perspective because it put us back in the "edge of your seat" feeling but then we got a similar description of Ringer's departure from Cassie and it was as if Ringer and her story line didn't matter anymore. We then cut back to Ringer after a huge event in the Cassie timeline and her pov is ... confusing, to say the least.Read more ›
What I loved was the character development that continued in Book 2 and the relationships that evolved. In addition, Yancey is a master at creating tension in a book. The action-packed storyline kept me reading.
What I didn't like was the lack of plot line. As the story unfolded I was filled with a sense of despair. All the characters face challenges that seem almost impossible to overcome. Perhaps this is the point of the book, though, as they seem to be facing an impossible situation.
But what I really didn't like in this book was the ending. Without giving anything away, I will just say that the conclusion was abrupt and seemed to be placed in an odd section of the book. I hope there is a third installment in this series (and soon) because as a reader I was left with no sense of closure.
Despite the negatives, I am looking forward to more in this series. That in itself suggests that The Infinite Sea is a success!
It starts a bit slow at first, but picks up quite nicely. The plot unravels in an unique way. It keeps you guessing, wondering, and then you feel like you're back at square one. And as you keep reading, you start to accept that nothing is what it seems...
Anyway, it was a truly well-written sequel from Rick Yancey!
The war between humans and aliens seems to be unending. They are no signs of anyone other than Cassie and her friends helping the cause. And all they keep hoping for is survival -- defending the planet is a long step away. This time around, the group will encounter new and old enemies who will try to infiltrate at all costs. Why such effort? If they are not a threat, why not just annihilate them fast and save time?
Yancey surprises once more by setting up different ruses along the story and making everyone a possible target. The characters have become tougher -- ready to handle whatever this writer throws at them. Even their dialogue is harsher. But above all, Yancey demonstrates the importance of love; and how that aspect alone separates us from monsters. Love for humanity, for innocence ... heck, even puppy love.
Can't wait to see how the series will end.
