The 5th Wave Universe to Continue with New Books

There’s great news this week for fans of Rick Yancey’s The 5th Wave trilogy. Yancey has just entered a deal with Putnam’s Jen Besser to write three more books set in the world of The 5th Wave.

The original book trilogy consists of The 5th Wave, The Infinite Sea and The Last Star, released in 2013, 2014 and 2016. In this world, aliens are attempting to annihilate every human, and they do this in multiple phases, called waves. The first book follows a teenage girl named Cassie Sullivan trying to find her younger brother and avoid being killed by alien snipers. The first book has a film adaptation, which was released in January 2016.
