Book Synopsis
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.

Cast


You may remember Chloë Grace Moretz from the movie If I Stay (another book to movie) but she has been in a ton of other movies. Her upcoming projects are Neighbors 2: Sorority Uprising, Brain on Fire and the just announced The Little Mermaid where she will be playing Ariel. But you will have to wait until 2017 for that one.


Nick Robinson is most known for Jurassic World and The Kings of Summer. As of now no upcoming projects.


Maika Monroe has been in many movies and tv shows but maybe not any you have heard of but she is working hard. Have you seen It Follows? She has a ton of upcoming projects so I think you might start to recognize her more. Look for her in Independence Day: Resurgence and Hot Summer Nights. 


Liev Schreiber has been in a ton of movies. His most notable being X-Men Origins where he plays Victor Creed. His upcoming projects are The Bleeder and Goon: Last of the Enforcers. You also might have seen him with his fiancé Naomi Watts


Zackary Arthur has been in a couple of things but his most famous is Transparent. He will also be in another movie this year called Pals.


Oh I love Maggie Siff. I am a big fan of hers. I especially loved her in Sons of Anarchy. She was also in Mad Men, and the new TV show Billions on Showtime. Her upcoming projects are A Woman, A Part and The Sweet Life. She is married to Paul Ratliff and have one child together.


Ron Livingston is  most well known for Office Space and Swingers (Swingers was one of those movies that I like more and more every time I watched it). He was also in the recently remade move Vacation.  His upcoming projects is Shimmer Lake.


Alex Roe was in the horror film The Calling in 2000.  (He must have been seriously young in that movie.) He has three movies coming out this year including the 5th Wave the other two are Rings and Hot Summer Nights.

J Blakeson has only directed a few movies. His last one was in 2009 called The Disappearance of Alice Creed. He is also a writer. He has no other projects as of now.

Rick Yancey {Author}
Rick Yancey has many books under his belt. This book is the first in the series so hopefully they will make the other books into movies also. He also wrote The Monstrumologist Series which I thought was interesting and unique. A different look at the monsters under your bed.
