Video THE 5TH WAVE Thrills Viewers and Listeners

Hear the story that inspired the blockbuster action movie of the season on audiobook. Rick Yancey’s The 5TH Wave series will have listeners on the edge of their seats.

In the first wave, they lost power. In the second wave, earthquakes shook the globe. The third was a horrific plague that wiped out most of the population, and the fourth was the invasion.

The fifth wave would be the total destruction of the human race.

So begins THE 5TH WAVE, Hollywood’s most recent young adult film adaptation to hit theaters. When aliens attack Earth to destroy all human life, the human race does what they do best – fight for their survival. After being separated from her family, Cassie Sullivan (played by Chloë Grace Moretz) does whatever necessary in order to reunite with them. She stumbles across Evan Walker (played by Alex Roe), who saves her from enemy fire, and quickly falls in love with him. But in the world of the 5TH Wave, is there really anyone you can trust?

THE 5TH WAVE is in theaters now, and if the trailers are any indication, this will be a great one to see on the big screen… just watch:
