Day 21 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.
(Synopsis from Goodreads.)
I read The 100 by Kass Morgan a couple of weeks ago after I had heard all the buzz surrounding the television show. I really enjoyed it. After the crazy cliffhanger ending of The 100, I knew that I needed to read Day 21 as soon as possible. Even though I enjoyed Day 21 quite a bit, I didn't like it as much as The 100.
Day 21 seemed like it was a bit slower paced than the first book. I think that's because the first book had all the world building, and anticipation of what would happen after a certain point (trying to be vague so I don't spoil anything). In this book, it seemed like not much happened for the first 50-100 pages. Once things started taking off though, holy crap! All of the different plot twists and information that we learn in this book... all I can say is wow! There were several things revealed towards the last few chapters of the book that were absolutely crazy. They came out of nowhere. I have the third book in the series, Homecoming, coming in from the library as soon as possible. I can't wait to read it and find out how the series ends.
I give Day 21: 4/5.

I received this book from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review. I was in no way compensated for this review.
