And back at it again, as I just start Rick Yancey's The Infinite Sea, Book 2 of the 5th Wave trilogy. Humanity has been devastated by invading aliens, who then work to turn survivors against each other. A small group, working with an alien who does agree with the genocidal tactics, struggle to survive. Literally just started reading this, but so far it matches the previous book's tone.
