Review: The Last Star by Rick Yancey

The Last Star by Rick Yancey

The Last Star is the third and final book in The 5th Wave series. I loved the first book, I liked the second book, and I thought this book was a good conclusion. Although it was really confusing. The book alternates between many characters – some in first person, some in third person, and half the time I didn’t know what was going on. I knew it would be explained at the end, so I tried to just go with it.

This book picks up 6 weeks after the end of book 2. Once again, I liked Yancey writing – short chapters, alternating voices, but the plot development could have been better. I did appreciate that this book focuses less on Cassie and more on Ben and Ringer because they’re my two favorite characters.

It’s hard to say more without giving away the plot, but I was satisfied with the conclusion of this series. I really hope they continue making the movies.

They’re down here, they’re up there, they’re nowhere. They want the Earth, they want us to have it. They came to wipe us out, they came to save us.

But beneath these riddles lies one truth: Cassie has been betrayed. So has Ringer. Zombie. Nugget. And all 7.5 billion people who used to live on our planet. Betrayed first by the Others, and now by ourselves.

In these last days, Earth’s remaining survivors will need to decide what’s more important: saving themselves…or saving what makes us human.
