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. (Goodreads)
The story is told from the same character’s point of views as in the previous novel. Clarke is still doing her best to take care of everyone, and succeeding at that. I liked Wells a little more in this book than I did in the previous book. He’s definitely starting to become more of a leader than a follower, and he does a pretty great job as a leader. Bellamy is more determined than ever to find his sister, even despite the setbacks that are keeping him from her. Glass is determined to be with her love, and is willing to do anything to be with him, even some pretty dangerous things. These characters keep the story really interesting, and I enjoy reading the story from each characters perspective.
There are also a lot of secondary characters in this series that you will come to care for as well; like Luke, who is super sweet, and Sasha, who is a new character that is introduced in this book. There are also some characters that you are really not going to like so much.
The storyline for the book stays true to what happened in the previous book, and I really enjoyed getting back into the world that Morgan created. I love that while this book is a fantasy novel, it feels so very realistic; something that could totally happen in the future. The book ends on quite a cliffhanger, and I’m dying to know what is going to happen next!
Overall; I am really enjoying this series so far. Day 21 is a great addition to this series. I’ll be waiting impatiently to get my hands on the next book in the series, as I have TONS of questions that need answers as soon as possible!
