Review: Day 21 (The Hundred #2) by Kass Morgan
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.
I received this book via NetGalley to give an honest review.
As soon as I finished book one and had my review up and posted I dived into book two.
So we are 21 days into the kids or young teenagers on Earth. They are slowly learning how to survive, with the help of Wells everyone is learning how to build huts to live in, we have Bellamy who is hunting and helping by bringing food when he can, and of course Clarke is doing all she can to help those that are injured or sick.
We still have 4 POV's and they are the same characters as in the first book which I thought was pretty good to keep the same characters so we didn't get thrown off.
The only problem I had with the POV's was in book one the author did a great job letting us know in each chapter the present and the past. By the change of the font so it all didn't blend in together. In this story she didn't do that. I found myself on more than one occasion going back to make sure I was reading the past and not the present as it was hard to tell being as the font was not changed. I know something silly to complain about.
So at the end of book one we learned that Octavia who is Bellamy's sister was kidnapped. Then in this story Wells actually captures someone who is trying to sneak away from their camp. But this is not just someone this is someone who actually lives on Earth. That means that there have been people here before the one hundred. And we get to meet them just once so it makes me want to read more to find out about these people. And revelation that was revealed to Clarke!
There are no laws that are set and everyone well almost everyone wants to kill this Earth person. But Bellamy needs her alive to tell him where his sister is at. The question is will this girl live or will she die? Will Octavia be found?
As we are getting POV's from Bellamy, Clarke and Wells on Earth. We are getting the POV from Glass who is still on the ship. And what she is going through is something that is scary. They are running out of oxygen in space and some people will live and some will not. From those in space who will make it to Earth?
There is some action, and still a whole lot of people kissing each other. I did enjoy how the characters were learning to adapt to living on Earth, and were trying to come together as one. I have to say I did enjoy this book not sure if I liked it more than the first or if I like them both the same. Hopefully there is another book.
