"Remarkable, not-to-be-missed-under-any-circumstances."
--Entertainment Weekly

"It has the dark, swoopy adrenaline of The Hunger Games, but the elegiac tone of The Road. Who cares what shelf you find it on? Just read it."
--EW.com

"Makes for an exhilarating reading experience."
--Tor.com

"Wildly entertaining.... I couldn't turn the pages fast enough."
--Justin Cronin, The New York Times Book Review

"A modern sci-fi masterpiece... should do for aliens what Twilight did for vampires."
--USAToday.com

"Step aside, Katniss."
--The Cleveland Plain Dealer

"Action-packed intrigue."
--MTV.com

*"Gripping!"
--Publishers Weekly, *starred review*

*"Nothing short of amazing!"
--Kirkus Reviews, *starred review*

*"Yancey's heartfelt, violent, paranoid epic, filled with big heroics and bigger surprises, is part War of the Worlds, part Starship Troopers, part Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and part The Stand . . . a sure thing for reviewers and readers alike."
--Booklist *starred review*

"This is DAMN and WOW territory. Quite simply, one of the best books I've read in years."
--Melissa Marr, New York Times bestselling author

"Breathtakingly fast-paced and original, The 5th Wave is a reading tsunami that grabs hold and won't let go. A postapocalyptic alien invasion story with a smart, vulnerable heroine."
--Melissa De La Cruz, New York Times bestselling author of the Blue Bloods series

"A fantastic read. The 5th Wave is an electrifying page-turner."
--Kathy Reichs, New York Times bestselling author

"Prepare to set everything else aside when you launch into this one. The break-neck pace and high stakes will draw you in, but it's the characters who will keep you turning pages. It's been a long time since I've read a story this compelling."
--Cinda Williams Chima, New York Times bestselling author
