The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey
Series: The 5th Wave #2
Genere: Young Adult, Science Fiction
Publisher: Penguin Group

Book Synopsis
How do you rid the Earth of seven billion humans? Rid the humans of their humanity.

Surviving the first four waves was nearly impossible. Now Cassie Sullivan finds herself in a new world, a world in which the fundamental trust that binds us together is gone. As the 5th Wave rolls across the landscape, Cassie, Ben, and Ringer are forced to confront the Others’ ultimate goal: the extermination of the human race.

Cassie and her friends haven’t seen the depths to which the Others will sink, nor have the Others seen the heights to which humanity will rise, in the ultimate battle between life and death, hope and despair, love and hate. 

Since I finished the first installment in the 5th wave series (review) I had to read the second one ASAP. This book felt more like filler than an actual story. The book picks up a few days later of where The 5th Wave left off. This book concentrated mainly around the transformation of Ringer and fill out a lot of holes while there are still many left to be answered. We get the vague idea about the alien infestation however many questions are still unanswered. 

The POV changes was within three characters, Ringer, Cassie and Evan. Cassie and Evan deals with world outside of camp haven however not in long term length. While Ringer counts her days in another 'camp haven'. Cassie and Evans storyline takes a backseat while we see the process of Ringer taking on a new environment all together. Through this change in Ringer we get some explanation which also leaves a whole lot of unanswered questions. 

The third book supposedly clears everything out, which will be released next year. Between the two released books this was not that appealing to me but I shall wait for the third book to have a final opinion about the series. 

I give this
