Picking up directly after The 5th Wave, The Infinite Sea finds Cassie and the rest of their squad holed up in an abandoned hotel, where they take refuge to stay safe and plan their next attack against the Others.
With Evan presumed dead, Cassie and the squad are torn between staying put and leaving to find a safer place to be while the Others search for them. Tensions run high between Cassie and Ringer, and when Ringer leaves to find caves from a brochure they found in the hotel she is captured again by the others and turned into one of them. Evan returns fulfilling his promise he made to Cassie which brings the Others directly to their door and they have to run for their lives yet again.
The Infinite Sea, although important in the series, was no where near as exciting as The 5th Wave. I found myself trying to get through it just so I could read the next book in the series and not much happened besides the hotel blowing up and a few deaths, all which lacked shock factor. With the exception of a couple new characters, both of which lacked any real depth, the story was kind of a snooze fest.
Although the writing can keep you intertwined in the story, it is much more due to character investment than it is interesting storyline. The Infinite Sea is a must read, but only so you can get to the next book in the series and find out what happens to all your favourite post-apocalyptic survivors.
Lots of love,
