It's been 21 days since The 100 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.
I really loved this book, much more than the first book! It was also better than the TV series in some aspects, and had lots of adorable scenes between certain characters. *Bellamy and Clarke*
This book felt more like a book than the first one, rather than a companion novel to a TV series. It may have been because the world was already built, and I could see the change in characters from the first book to this book. It was faster paced than the other book, and held my attention much better. There were also less flash backs, which I enjoyed because it made the book more plot based than character based.
My only problem with this book is that Kass Morgan kept on recapping the previous book. It felt like you didn't actually have to read the first book to be able to understand this book because if something big happened Morgan would mention the events leading up to it in the previous book. It broke up the story and made me a little annoyed because I already knew what had happened.
This book, as heavy as it sounds, is a light and easy read. There is very little depth to the story, it is literally what you read on the page. On reflection I don't think I would continue reading this series if I hadn't watched the TV show. However that plot twist at the end blew everything up for me, so I kind of have to find out what happens next!
