Rick Yancey - Az ​utolsó csillag
Az ​ötödik hullám végigtarolta a világot, és elpusztított szinte mindenkit, aki az első négy hullám után még életben maradt. A túlélők maroknyi csapatára már csak a világvége vár. Mindegy, hogy emberek vagy az Azok soraiból származó, hibás programozású lények, továbbfejlesztett szuperhősök. Öt napjuk van, aztán az égen lebegő zöld anyahajóból záporozni kezdenek a bombák, amelyek egyszer s mindenkorra eltakarítják a Föld felszínéről az emberi civilizáció minden nyomát - a fertőzést, aminek Azok az emberiséget tekintik. Cassie, Adu, Zombi, Evan, Dumbo és Sam együtt és egyenként is szembesül a dilemmával: vajon mi a fontosabb, menteni az életüket, vagy menteni azt, ami emberré teszi őket? Rejtőzködés vagy harc? Megküzdenek még egy-egy Némítóval, védelmezik a gondjaikra bízott gyerekeket, igyekeznek betartani régi ígéreteiket, és ráébrednek, hogy a szeretet a világvége fenyegetésétől sem sorvad el. Végül Cassie megpróbálkozik a lehetetlennel: egy utolsó küldetésben, akár az élete árán is megkísérli elpusztítani a mélyében bombákat rejtő anyahajót... Rick Yanceynek több népszerű, díjnyertes sorozat megírása után a 2013-ban megjelent Az ötödik hullám hozta el a világsikert. A kötet kiadási joga néhány hónap alatt közel negyven országban kelt el, és rövid időn belül elkészült a regény filmváltozata. Bestsellere világát a kultikus népszerűségű Stephen Hawking ihlette. Műfaját a szerző ironikusan "popkultúra-ellenes földönkívüli-megszállásos" sci-finek nevezte, és a besoroláshoz hozzátette: "Írásnál a robbantgatás mindig remek móka. Na meg a csók. A csókolózást nem szabad kihagyni." Rick Yancey Floridában nevelkedett, aztán Chicagóban tanult, ahol ki nem állhatta a rettentő hideget, majd már befutott íróként visszatért gyermekkora színhelyére, a napsütötte Floridába. Itt él ma is családjával, és ötletekkel tele dolgozik következő kötetén.
