The Colonists and the Earthborns are celebrating their first holiday together when, to everyone’s horror, they’re attacked by a group of strangers whose unusual battle cries fill the air. When Bellamy and Clarke discover that Wells, Octavia and Glass have been captured, they vow to get them back at all costs. But as they go after their new enemies, Bellamy and Clarke find themselves increasingly at odds, unable to agree on a plan to save their friends.
Meanwhile, Wells, Octavia, and Glass are being slowly brainwashed by their captors with one goal: to grow their ranks and “heal” the war-ravaged planet.
Another story with a cult in it. Honestly it has become a bit of an obsession of mine, which could be unhealthy (possibly...) All cults aside I enjoyed this book much more than the previous two books, and managed to remember what happened in this one!
We get to see how the four main characters cope in stressful situations, having to react quickly to what is attacking them. We finally get to see them being strong, independent characters instead of whiny children. The evolution of all the characters from book one to this book is really incredible; maybe the best character development I've ever read.
The writing was once again astounding. Even though my journey with this book series was rocky I will always be in awe of Kass Morgan's writing style. She spun this world perfectly and captivated me; so much so that I almost missed my bus stop. Almost.
The ending was all I could have dreamed of and more. I won't spoil anything but Bellarke shippers will love the ending; I know I did! There were a lot of twists and turns, ups and downs but the book finally settled down in a way that surprising but not unpredictable. And yes, I cried like a little baby.
Overall it was a well-written conclusion to the 100 series. It wasn't an intense work of literature but it was an enjoyable read. I don't think this book is for everyone at all but if you love the T.V show you should give the series a try.
