Goodreads Synopsis: 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: I enjoyed this one just as much as the first, in fact, I read this straight after book one, so they both kind of mingle together. It is slightly more fast paced that the first one, but just as fun.

On Earth, we are introduced to some new characters and some of them are actually nice. People at the camp run into a little trouble with the local flora, but luckily one of these new friends saves the day. Up on The Colony tensions run high, not only with the relationships between Glass and Luke, Glass and her mother, but also between the different classes, especially as the oxygen gets low.

As with the first book, the story is told in multiple viewpoints and in flashbacks. I really enjoyed watching some of the characters grow into strong and resourceful people, and the flashbacks shed a whole new light on some of the character dynamics.

If you enjoyed the first book then you are definitely going to want to read this one, especially as book three The Homecoming is coming out next month.
