*The previous places have the trilogy set as well as the fifth wave*
Summary:
When aliens have invaded earth and have a plan to wipe out the entire human race in just five waves 1st wave- lights out, 2nd wave- surf’s up, 3rd wave- infections , 4th wave- silencers, 5th wave- us. Very few have chances of survival but one 16 year old girl manages to fight her way through it armed with an M-16 rifle and a teddy bear Cassie, must find her younger brother taken by the “others” and she must survive from falling in love with the silencer that is trying to kill her. Meanwhile 17 year old Zombie a military recruit has to fight the extraterrestrial beings invading earth and he must also keep his promise made to his youngest recruit that he will come back for him. Through all the tension and dramatic points in Rick Yancey’s novel he gives the story a sense of reality.

The fifth wave is coming out as a major motion picture in 2016 the movie comes out January 29,2016 I believe it’s going to be a pretty good movie.
