Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey

Title: Infinite Sea (book 2)
Author: Rick Yancey
Genera: YA, Sci-Fi, Dystopia, Alien/Apocalyptic
Publisher: G.P. Putnam's Sons Book for Young Readers

My Rating: 4.5 STARS

Okay, I'll be honest, this book wasn't as good as the first one BUT it was still REALLY REALLY GOOD. 

First off, I just have to say that Rick's writing style is pure gold. I love the way he puts such thoughtful and mind blowing quote/sayings into his books. I think it give the book depth and it just makes the character so much more wise when they say things that blows your mind.

Not a lot of things happened in the Infinite Sea (compared to the 5th Wave) but there was still the aspect of action and fighting and survival. But I think this book was more about explaining to us what the eff is going on. We don't learn everything but we learn about the 12 Systems and all that nice stuff (not gonna say due to spoilers) which helped explain some questions I had in book 1. 

Ringer: She has her own POV in this book! (and her POV is like basically 1/2 the book so if she was your fav. character in the 5th Wave, then YAY YOU!) For me, I don't really know if I LOVE Ringer but I don't dislike her, I just don't think she is my fav. character. She just isn't the most open and engaging character but I still liked that I got to learn a bit more about her and her past.

Poundcake: He has a POV too! Wow, his POV was just really really sad. I really liked that Rick give us info about his past, I feel like sometimes the side characters are neglected. So its good I got to understand why Poundcake is always silent and I got to see his life before the Waves. 

Basically all the characters are the same from the 5th Wave EXCEPT 2 people who I am not going to name. I really liked one of them and I hated the other so there's that little note for ya, haha. 

All in all, I really liked this book and I highly recommend this trilogy to fans of aliens and end-of-the-world books. Can't wait to read the last book! 

Happy Reading!
