The book trailer for Rick Yancey's highly anticipated novel The 5th Wave, the first novel in The Fifth Wave series, recently premiered on EW's Shelf Life along with an excerpt!

I've been hearing so much online buzz for The 5th Wave lately! I was already really looking forward to reading the book months ago, but it has definitely raised my excitement (and expectations!) even more for the novel. I mean, a post-apocalyptic storyline with a terrifying alien invasion? What's not to like!?

I love the cinematic feel of this book trailer! Enjoy.

Summary (from Penguin Canada):
The Passage meets Ender's Game in an epic new series from award-winning author Rick Yancey.

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.

  1. I'm waiting to see how this does in the review front because it looks pretty good but I'm not the biggest fan of dystopia.

    Thanks for sharing the trailer
