The Infinite Sea (The 5th Wave #2) by Rick Yancey

                                                         Book Blurb (from Goodreads)
How do you rid the Earth of seven billion humans? Rid the humans of their humanity.

Surviving the first four waves was nearly impossible. Now Cassie Sullivan finds herself in a new world, a world in which the fundamental trust that binds us together is gone. As the 5th Wave rolls across the landscape, Cassie, Ben, and Ringer are forced to confront the Others’ ultimate goal: the extermination of the human race.

Cassie and her friends haven’t seen the depths to which the Others will sink, nor have the Others seen the heights to which humanity will rise, in the ultimate battle between life and death, hope and despair, love and hate.

My Review:
Mind boggling. That plot twist at the end was, oh my, HUGE. My head is still spinning from it and I still have not even began to fully understand what has just happened. This big a plot twist deserves and EVEN bigger explanation. 
It was really refreshing to start of the book with Ringers perspective. Unlike most people I was able to remember who she was and identify when she was speaking. I think that Ringer may be my favourite character. 
I loved how Rick Yancey went more in depth in to the characters and we got a better understanding of their actions and how they were thinking. The idea of chess was quite smart because that is exactly what this book is: moves and counter moves. 
Like always Rick Yancey likes to give us small heart attacks because he likes to make us think that a character is going to die and then they live. 
When the action was turned up in this book (which was like half the time) really got turned up. The action and suspense in this book is amazing. It has you squirming, giggling and shouting words of encouragement and a book. 
This is still my favourite science fiction series and I really, really REALLY need the next book. Rick Yancey please write faster.
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars:
