Spoiler alert: If you haven’t read The 5th Wave, the first book in the series, stop reading this blog posting and instead read that book first.
The Infinite Sea begins after the 4th wave. With winter fast approaching, Cassie Sullivan, her younger brother, Sam, Teacup, Dumbo, Poundcake, Ringer (Marika) and Ben know that they can’t survive in the hotel they currently inhabit. Their goal is to get to the caverns where they stand a chance of being warm enough to endure the harsh winter. If they stay above ground, their fires to ward off the cold will draw The Silencers to them.
Cassie doesn’t want to leave the rat infested hotel. She is still waiting for Evan Walker’s return. So boldly Ringer and Teacup start the walk (about 20 miles) to see if the Other’s might be setting a trap for them at the Caverns or whether this will become their winter hideout.
Ringer and Teacup are captured. Ringer knows that Vosch will use Teacup’s life to force Ringer to comply with his devious plans to exterminate all life on earth.
“I’m dizzy; the room won’t stay still. Bluffs inside bluffs, feints within counter feints, I’m in a game in which I don’t know the rules or even the object. This is the bind. This is the trap. This is where the road of impossible promises dead-ends.”
This book The Infinite Sea and The 5th Wave are recommended for mature readers. The plots are very complicated and some of the plot twists and turns could cause nightmares. Be warned! This title is not for everyone. Fans of The 5th Wave should love it. A final book will finish the series.
