The Fifth Review Now this is how you write a book ladies and gentlemen. The book The Fifth Wave, written by the brilliant author Rick Yancey, takes the post alien apocalyptic novel to a whole new level. Now, when you think about an alien invasion it’s usually aliens running around the planet aimlessly, and us fighting them to keep our planet and race alive!
