The Last Star
The Last Star | Rick Yancey
Following the major motion picture release starring Chlo Grace Moretz, the heart-stopping finale to the bestselling 5th Wave series. We're here, then we're gone, and that was true before they came. That's always been true. The Others didn't invent death; they just perfected it. Gave death a face to put back in our face, because they knew that was the only way to crush us. It won't end on any continent or ocean, no mountain or plain, jungle or desert. It will end where it began, where it had been from the beginning, on the battlefield of the last beating human heart. 'Remarkable, not-to-be-missed-under-any-circumstances . . . JUST READ IT' Entertainment Weekly HOW DO YOU RID THE EARTH OF SEVEN BILLION HUMANS? RID THE HUMANS OF THEIR HUMANITY. Cassie Sullivan and her companions lived through the Others' four waves of destruction. Now, with the human race nearly exterminated and the 5th Wave rolling across the landscape, they brace themselves. For the next attack is more than possible - it's inevitable. No one can anticipate the depths to which the Others will sink - nor the heights to which humanity will rise. THE FINAL WAVE IS COMING.

"The Silencer priest felt them inside of me-I thought they were gone, I thought I had lost them,but you never lose those who love you, because love is a constant; love endures.
Someone's arms are lifting me up: Razor's.
Someone's hands steady me: Teacup's.
Someone's smiling is giving me hope: Zombie's
I should have told him when I had the chance how much I love the way he smiles.
I rise."

I recommend this book because the character development is great. There is a lot of depressing death, but I think it is important for the character development. Rick Yancey shows the characters behind their mask by having sections of different character's point of view. This is a great read and I suggest reading the rest of the series before this one.

I finally finished reading the 5th wave series and I highly enjoyed this series overall but I am so upset about the ending of this book. But it still was an amazing read for me it was just a bittersweet and sad ending that I can‘t even stop thinking about that ending. Ugh !

I liked the Fifth Wave series, and now a friend is reading it and I can‘t wait to discuss things with her.

Ship Breaker is a great book, but I like the sequel (The Drowned Cities) better. It‘s set on a dystopian Earth after mass climate change and the sequel features a badass woman amputee as the main character!!

Hounded I liked, but I have problems with most urban fantasy, and this series is no exception.

I was a bit disappointed in the ending to this eerie, atmospheric trilogy. There are more mind games and senseless deaths, as well as musings on what it means to be human. I didn‘t connect with the characters all that much, and the ending, though it made sense, wasn‘t wholly satisfying.

A while back I remember reading that B&N was going to start laying off/downsizing, then I was told that it had been projected that they will go bankrupt/out of business in the near future. I held out hope until we went today... I have NEVER seen so many books bargained price. The only one we paid full price for was Invasion. All of the other hardbacks were so cheap! Makes me happy to get so many, but sad to think it could mean the end. 😕

RebL I went this weekend and got horrible customer service. I figured it was the result of laying off their senior staff members. 2y
BooksTeasAndBookishThings @RebL that stinks. 😕 The service was still great at this one and it was packed! But, I swear when I first walked in there were two whole displays of bargains and then several around the whole store. And that isn‘t even including my member discount. I mean, these were all steals. 🤞they somehow dig out of this hole and keep it around. Or at the very least customer service doesn‘t continue to dwindle like that. 2y
RebL Same. I want them to stick around too. Maybe the poor customer service was a fluke. At least I hope it was, but I‘ve been going to bookstores for a lot of years and this felt different. 2y

⭐️⭐️

Filler, filler, more filler, and a rushed conclusion to such a promising series. I am such a fan of the first book - but the rest of the series struggled from there. I feel like there was nothing but death encircling false resolution - characters had taken a complete 180, and anything that made them unique and interesting was not discussed. Plot-wise, the story lost its quest and purpose, and diluted the traction of the story.

This one falls between so-so and pan. This first half of the book was alright, but the last half held no interest to me and I started skimmed just to get to the end. This is the last book in the 5th Wave trilogy, and I can‘t say that I enjoyed it much. Oh well. ⭐️⭐️

I have a whole bunch of trilogies and series on my shelves waiting to be finished. I also have several waiting to be started. I‘ve decided that before starting a new series I have to finish some others first! Im going to start by finishing the 5th Wave trilogy.

As an aside, I‘m super annoyed that the Costco price sticker seems to be permanently attached to the dust jacket 😡

Horrible! The only reason I didn‘t bail on this book was because it was the last in the series and wanted to know how it ended. I couldn‘t stand how the author would just switch from 2nd and third person writing viewpoints throughout the book, it drove me nuts. The whole series was very confusing and hard to follow. I really think the way he wrote it was more dedicated to getting a movie deal than just having a good book. Very disappointed 😔

I expected so much more from this book. I mean, i loved the other two. And this one beggins "well"... But it gets worse with every chapter. The characters are stupid af and the story is the same all the time, there are no changes. If the second book has a big reveal, i expect to find something interesting about it in the third. But nope. A disappointment for me, sorry ?.

Another really good audiobook. This series is very well written, and I absolutely love that it wasn't like so many other contrived YA dystopian that I have read. No real love triangle, and I don't think I rolled my eyes even once!

Lots of action and deep subject matter that makes you think about what it is to be human. I was not crazy about the way the story ended, but I can respect the direction it went.

Reviewsbylola I am. It took me about half way to really appreciate it. I like King's way of telling a story, even though he can be long winded. It has a slight supernatural/fantasy element though that is off putting to me. 3y

I don't know how I feel about The Last Star. Like all the books in this series, it was fabulously written. Yancey's reflections on what it means to be human were profound. And I think this was an accurate portrayal of what humans will probably be like as we near the end of the world. But it wasn't a really satisfying ending. While I didn't expect to have warm, gushy, happily-ever-after feelings, all the deaths left me with a bad taste in my mouth.

Not at all how I imagined the conclusion of this series. But I really enjoyed it. A little angsty at times, but such a interesting story.
Kept waiting for there to be a trite love triangle but that never happened, which was a pleasant surprised. It was hinted at but never came to fruition.
Would definitely recommend to lovers of YA dystopian.

The paperback finally came out so I bought it to finish the series. Super quick and easy read. I like his style of writing , especially when it is Cassie's pov. Ending seemed very meh.

Even though I loved this series, Cassie never quite evolved like the other characters did until the very end. I never quite liked her. I'd label her a #DramaQueen #Characters2017 – This is the last book the series, the first being 'The 5th Wave'.

Disappointed with the conclusion of this series.

Wasn't fully thrilled with the second book, I didn't feel it was nearly as strong as the first (and best) book but had hope that this final installment might redeem this series and end it on a higher note.
Unfortunately, that did not happen IMO. Bummer.😕

I really liked the first book when I read it a few years ago. Then, I FINALLY got around to reading the last two in the series and I've found that I'm not as interested. It seemed to drag on a little too long and I'm not excited about the ending. At all.
