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 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
Ok, I wasn’t sure about reading this book, but considering how we left the troops at the end of book 1, curiosity won out. Despite a little hiccup early on when I decided I didn’t like the soundtrack to the book which put me off, (I realise this makes no sense, so I’ll explain, I was sick and sort of sleeping and reading at the same time and the music was from my iPod which holds the entirety of the music library I share with my brother. Some of our music choices are not cross compatible, I blame him…) I did actually complete it, with another need to know what happens next.
I believe this is more of a teen book than a YA, they characters are simple and fall into love easily and fast and sudden and shocking plot lines are rather easy to spot coming. I still haven’t watched more than the first two episodes of the tv series, but I think I may prefer the book story outline. Bellamy is my favourite character and I don’t think he was translated to the screen in his entirety, I believe he was combined with others. Certainly much of the twisty and interwoven plot from the books wont translate to the screen with their additions and subtractions and honestly I like twisty and interwoven.
