Book Review: The 100: 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 loved Kass Morgan's The 100 (read my review here), and started reading The 100: Day 21 immediately after finishing book one.  I didn't want to leave Morgan's unique, thrilling world (and I still don't!). 

I started this book expecting a gripping plot line, well-developed characters, and a fast pace.  Morgan delivered on all of those things, and more.  I loved the turn the story took in this installment.  It was unexpected and exciting.  The pace was even faster than The 100, again, I read this book in one sitting. 

I had two complaints about The 100: Day 21.  The book felt transitional to me, like Morgan was busy setting up book three and slacked a little on the action in this book.  My second complaint is that I wanted this book to be longer.  I finished it so quickly, and while I loved it, I wanted more to the story.

Many of the questions I had after finishing The 100 were answered in The 100: Day 21.  I enjoyed the flashbacks, as they provided a lot of history for each character.  I have even more questions now, and I cannot wait to find out more in book three.  The 100: Day 21 ended on a very surprising note and all I can say is that the ending definitely left me excited for book three. 

If you haven't tried The Hundred series yet, I highly recommend it!

  1. This book Just no. Everything I enjoyed about book one was the glaring problem in book two. It's like everything amplified until I couldn't stand it anymore.
