review 1: What can I say? Alien books are just the best! I definitely need more of them in my life. I'm glad that I didn't read this when it came out because now I only have to wait a little bit for the infinite sea. although I might reread since I had to take notes and it took me longer I...

review 1: I chose to read "The Infinite Sea" because it was the sequel of a book I liked a lot. I had high expectations and although it didn't completely meet my expectations it was still pretty good.I was impressed by how much the characters have changed since the first book. Cassie kept ...

review 1: i read the second book in the series first because i didnt know any better. though it wasnt necessary to read the first book to follow the second book, i wouldve liked to have read the first one first because it was supposed to have been a better book than this one. this book...i...

review 1: First, if you haven't read the previous books, you will probably find this book confusing. Second, there is much more violence (not the monster variety) in this book, plus alcohol and drug usage. Third, spoilers ahead. While the end of the Monstrumologist and Will Henry's journey...

review 1: I could barely put this book down. It is definitely one of my favorite books I've read this year. It is YA sci-fi, yet Yancey used vocabulary, partly to date the book and mimic the era of the setting, but I would like to believe that it is also partly to appeal to readers who app...
The Isle of Blood (2011)

English

review 1: There is something about these books (in the Monstrumologist series) that elevates them above your typical YA novels. The characters are so compelling to me....Will Henry, Pellinore Warthrop, nd even Jack Kearns. They are all gruesome, although this one less so than the others,...

review 1: This is the 2nd book in the series & it is just as good as the first. This time the Doctor & his assistant are off on a thrilling adventure to rescue an old friend. I don't like to over analyze my entertainment, especially books, but this brought back memories of watching scarey ...

review 1: I was so ready to give this book 5 stars as I had the prior 3 books of the series, just for having Dr. Warthrop, Will Henry, and horrifying monsters. But no, this book, though I enjoyed it because it is the Monstrumology series and I could read about Will Henry and Pelinore Warth...

review 1: This novel has a lot of gore, so if that puts you or your YA off, don't read. The prose is superb. The characters are richly drawn; however, Will Henry is the only truly sympathetic and likable character. I happen to be a scientist, so the dispassionate and emotionally distant p...

review 1: I have mixed feelings about this book. It took me a lot of time to get into it and understand where it was going, and still the plot felt a bit lacking. The writing style was weird as well. Let me explain: the whole story is like an autobiography, the adventures of an 11-year-old...

review 1: Rating: 3.5 - 3.75Yancey's writing exceeded my expectations, being descriptive and imaginative. I loved the premise and plot of the story although I generally disliked a majority of the adult characters in the book. I enjoyed how everything in the book tied up neatly in the end a...

review 1: Ugh! It is very rare to find a book that I crave reading all day long and cannot put down, especially a series that I cannot put down. This series is epic to me. And the Final Descent is in the mail and I am dying that it won't be here for another few days :( (even though I order...

review 1: What is with modern society and its obsession with the end of all ends? Just look at all the dystopian books that are out there, stories where humanity is on the brink of extinction. And I suppose it is quite easy to put Rick Yancey’s ‘The 5th Wave’ in that same category, because...

review 1: umm okay, so I just finished the book. Not quite sure how I'm feeling... sad, confused, relieved, hopeless, did I mention CONFUSED? I really have no idea what just happened - I'm probably going to have to read this again to try and wrap my head around it. Fingers crossed the fina...
