Author: Kass Morgan
Summary: In the future, humans live in city-like spaceships orbiting far above Earth’s toxic atmosphere. No one knows when, or even if, the long-abandoned planet will be habitable again. But faced with dwindling resources and a growing populace, government leaders know they must reclaim their homeland… before it’s too late.
Now, one hundred juvenile delinquents are being sent on a high-stakes mission to recolonize Earth. After a brutal crash landing, the teens arrive on a savagely beautiful planet they’ve only seen from space. Confronting the dangers of this rugged new world, they struggle to form a tentative community. But they’re haunted by their past and uncertain about the future. To survive, they must learn to trust – and even love – again.
No one has set foot on Earth in centuries — until now.
It’s been 21 days since the hundred landed on Earth. They’re the only humans to set foot on the planet in centuries…or so they thought. Facing an unknown enemy, Wells attempts to keep the group together. Clarke strikes out for Mount Weather, in search of other Colonists, while Bellamy is determined to rescue his sister, no matter the cost. And back on the ship, Glass faces an unthinkable choice between the love of her life and life itself.
In this pulse-pounding sequel to Kass Morgan’s The 100, secrets are revealed, beliefs are challenged, and relationships are tested. And the hundred will struggle to survive the only way they can — together.
My Thoughts: These books were graciously given to me through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
I am going to be reviewing these in one post as I read them that way.
I should start by saying I have seen the 4 episodes of the show. In fact I started with the show and when I realized it was based on a book I stopped because I always love reading the book first.
You get thrown into the world quite rapidly and I loved how it starts with drama and action! But, the flashbacks confused me! They happened so abruptly and trying to get into the past world was hard. And to make it harder we jumped POVs so much that I felt I was in a constant state of upheaval, which I did not like.
The plot kept you engaged throughout the read, and once we got into the current plot a bit more I did not mind the flashbacks as much, as I felt they pulled the story together a bit more.
I completely understand why this was made into a book and cannot wait to finish Season 1!
