since this is the third book in the series, in order not to spoil anyone who has not yet read this series or is not caught up on it, i will be providing the synopsis of the first book.
the 5th wave synopsis [from goodreads]:
After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.
Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother–or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.
“Some things you can never leave behind. They don’t belong to the past. They belong to you.” -Rick Yancey, The 5th Wave (The 5th Wave #1)
