WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD
The 100 are not alone on earth. After one of theirs is killed by an Earthborn, they must band together to stop the threat. But that’s not the only threat out there. Some of the 100 are starting to get sick.
So this is the point in the series where I can officially say that the books and the show are nothing alike. I’m glad though. I really don’t think I’d like the books if they were similar to the show.
We finally got to meet the “Earthborn” in this book (they will forever be grounders to me). I definitely expected there to be more conflict with them, a lot more conflict than there was. There really wasn’t any though and the big story with them came at the end. There was a lot more internal drama in this book, a lot more conflict with the main characters. I thought it could be a little childish at times.
There were some major twists and turns in this book that could make the next two books very interesting. I have a feeling I know how at least on of them will play out though. Oh, and I still think Glass is one of the most pointless characters in the book. I know she’s supposed to be the link to the colony but she could have totally written her as a better character.
Overall, I quite enjoyed this book and I’m looking forward to reading book 3!
