For the last couple of weeks I have been completely obsessed with The 100, both the books and the TV series. Today I finished reading the second book in the series, Day 21 for the 2016 Reading Challenge, and remain absolutely enthralled by the world and its characters.
Title: Day 21
Author: Kass Morgan
Category: #49 A sequel
“We aren’t born for ourselves alone. You have to take care of other people.”
Day 21 is the second novel in The 100 series: with the characters firmly adapting to their new lives on earth, this volume features mystery, murder and romance. The character development is excellent, with more details being revealed about our four protagonists: Clarke, Bellamy, Wells and Glass, all of whom are becoming stronger, more interesting individuals.
The primary issue that occurs in this novel is the developing conflict between the Earthborns and The 100. This makes for an entertaining, fast-paced read as the characters war amongst themselves and the outsiders.
This series just keeps getting better! I adore all the characters (I previously had an issue with Glass, as I thought she was weak and infatuated with Luke) and they have developed beautifully. Clarke remains strong and largely independent, yet it was fun to see her relationship blossoming with Bellamy (and I now finally understand the Bellarke ship, although having just finished watching Season 2 of the show, I am 100% shipping Clexa – no spoilers!) I can’t wait to continue on with this series, both by page and screen.
