Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine. This feature highlights an upcoming release that I am excited about.
The Last Star by Rick Yancey
Release Date: May 24, 2016
Genre: Young Adult, Dystopia
Goodreads Book Description
We’re here, then we’re gone, and that was true before they came. That’s always been true. The Others didn’t invent death; they just perfected it. Gave death a face to put back in our face, because they knew that was the only way to crush us. It won’t end on any continent or ocean, no mountain or plain, jungle or desert. It will end where it began, where it had been from the beginning, on the battlefield of the last beating human heart.
Master storyteller Rick Yancey invokes triumph, loss, and unrelenting action as the fate of the planet is decided in the conclusion to this epic series.
Why I’m Excited
I fell totally head over heels in love with The Fifth Wave when it was released. I gifted it to every book lover that I knew, basically forcing it upon anyone that was willing just so that I had an excuse to keep talking about it. The Infinite Sea, though it did not draw me in quite as much as the first book, was still excellent! Therefore, it is pretty obvious why I am excited for the wrap up of this series! I will admit, that I am in desperate need of some reminders about what happened in this series thus far (it’s been 3 years since book #1 and 2 years since book #2 – I can’t remember everything!), so I am going to need to do some ramping up before I dive into this. I am also planning to watch the movie adaption of The Fifth Wave before I start this, because I still haven’t done that yet either, and I think it will just make me (if possible) even more excited to finish the series.
