Weeks after landing on Earth, the Hundred have managed to create a sense of order amidst their wild, chaotic surroundings. But their delicate balance comes crashing down with the arrival of new dropships from space.

These new arrivals are the lucky ones—back on the Colony, the oxygen is almost gone—but after making it safely to Earth, GLASS’s luck seems to be running out. CLARKE leads a rescue party to the crash site, ready to treat the wounded, but she can’t stop thinking about her parents, who may still be alive. Meanwhile, WELLS struggles to maintain his authority despite the presence of the Vice Chancellor and his armed guards, and BELLAMY must decide whether to face or flee the crimes he thought he’d left behind.

It’s time for the Hundred to come together and fight for the freedom they’ve found on Earth, or risk losing everything—and everyone—they love.


3 out of 5 stars

Have to admit, a kind of sucky end to a trilogy. I really enjoyed the first two, the first especially because I loved the dystopian/sci-fi elements, but this one fell so short. I got so angry at this book because I wanted to shoot the Vice Chancellor in the face for trying to take over everything on earth. The original hundred knew things about earth that no one else did. Let them lead you. Oh my gosh I literally wanted to push Rhodes off a cliff because of it. Also, I hated that the adults hated Bellamy. Yes he kind of got the Chancellor shot, but he did it out of love for his sister. He wanted to help her and make sure she didn’t get hurt. He wanted to protect Octavia because she was in trouble for being born. ugh ugh ugh.

Clarke still remains my favorite character from the series. She’s so strong and really sets her mind to things. The only thing I didn’t like about Clarke was her relationship with Bellamy. I promise that I like romance just as much as the next girl, but it was soooooo unrealistic. Like seriously, come on. They have so many other things to worry about than dating each other. They just landed on earth and they’re still trying to figure their lives out and how things work. Like stop focusing on one another and make the most of what you’re doing.

Glass was my least favorite character from the whole series because she was a whiny baby. “I just wanna run off with my boyfriend. By ourselves. Into the unknown. We’ve only been here for a week, but we know how things work. No one will attack us. We’ll be fine. We’ll forage for food even though we’ve lived in a spaceship our whole lives. Don’t worry about us… Well shit now bad stuff is happening better go run back to camp!”

Figure. Things. Out. First. Run. Away. Later.

All in all, I think the series would have made a great duology with a little added to the second to wrap things up. I didn’t love this book, but I loved being back with these characters. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes dystopian or sci-fi!
