The much-anticipated movie adaptation of Rick Yancey's novel, The 5th Wave,  opens in cinemas around Australia TODAY. Just ICYMI, here's the basic plotline:

The 1st Wave took out half a million people.

The 2nd Wave put that number to shame.

The 3rd Wave lasted a little longer. Twelve weeks . . . Four billion dead.

In the 4th Wave you can't trust that people are still people.

And the 5th Wave? No one knows. But it's coming.

On a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs. Runs from the beings that only look human, who have scattered Earth's last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan may be her only hope.

An absolute heart pounding read! When you read from Cassie's perspective, it's hard not to believe that aliens have taken over the Earth and the end of the world is upon us. Twists and turns kept me reading all through the night, and even after the last page I was begging Yancey for more. This book will not disappoint anyone who likes a bit of action, love and mystery, just be prepared for a sleepless night! - Chey, QBD Hornsby

Are you going to read it before you see it? We can't get enough of it! And Book 2, The Inifinite Sea is released on 18th January- so you don't have to sit biting your fingernails, waiting to find out what happens!
