I loved the first one but this managed to surpass it. Yancey writes with depth and takes what could've been a paint by numbers story (like hunger games) and makes it a philosophical treatise on what it means to be human. I loved this book.

Oh my word. I really really REALLY like this series. I am simultaneously in love and kicking myself because I thought the next book came out way sooner than it did but I still have a whole month to wait for it's release. I like that each book ends in a way that finishes the current story arc but keeps the overall story arc open for the next book. I am really excited to see how this one concludes.

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.

It was slow getting into the first book of this series, but the Infinite Sea picked up the pace and the interest, developing the characters and wanting you to know more about them and how they would deal with their demise. I liked this series from beginning to end and would recommend it.

I absolutely loved The Fifth Wave so I was eagerly anticipating the release of The Infinite Sea. For me, the second book in this series didn't measure up to the first book.

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!

The sequel to 5th wave is, one hell of, a roller coaster.

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!

"It isn't so much about crushing your capacity to fight as it is your will to fight."

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.

To Rick Yancy, what a joy it has been to live in the minds of these wonderful characters that you've created. The world you've created is beyond bleak and horrifying, but the tremendous strength and courage that each of these characters possess is captivating, I can't wait to read how it all ends...
