"We'd stared into the face of Death, and Death blinked first. You'd think that would make us feel brave and invincible. It didn't."

About the Book

It started with the Others just watching. For ten days, they just sat in the sky and watched us. But after those ten days, the Others came to Earth to kill everyone. They didn't come to make peace, or watch us, or to abduct our cows. They came to kill us.

And they got rid of 95% of us in just a few months.

The first wave took away all electricity.

The second wave took away the coastal cities.

The third wave was known the Pestilence, the Red Tsunami, the Fourth Horseman, and the Blood Plague. Call it what you like, it's still a virus, and it'll still kill more people than you could imagine. After the third wave, only the unlucky ones survived.

After the fourth wave, there's only one rule: Don't trust anyone. Not even the ones who claim to be on the good side, fighting for the Earth.

And now the fifth wave is coming.
