The Last Star is the heart-stopping finale to the bestselling 5th Wave series by award-winning author, Rick Yancey. Perfect for fans of The Hunger Games, Divergent and The Maze Runner.

'Wildly entertaining . . . I couldn't turn the pages fast enough' The New York Times

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.

Master storyteller Rick Yancey invokes triumph, loss, and unrelenting action as the fate of the planet is decided in the conclusion to this epic series.

*Thank you Penguin Random House Audio for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review*

Audio: As with the first two books in the series, the narration is done really well. Multiple POVs read by only two voice actors don't always translate well, but both Phoebe and Ben did a good job giving each character their own unique sound. 

Story: There's a lot I could say about this one, all of which is spoilery, and I've been asked by the publisher not to spoil anything. But I will say this...As a reader, it's incredibly frustrating to invest years of your life in a story and it's characters, only to be let down in the end.
