Rhine and Gabriel have escaped the mansion but haven’t outrun the danger. On the outside, they encounter a landscape  as mysterious and threatening as the one they left behind. Despite the perils, the two are determined to get to  Manhattan, to relative safety with Rhine’s twin brother, Rowan. But in a world where young women only live to age twenty and young men die at twenty-five, time is precious.

Ever since a devastating nuclear war, humanity has lived on spaceships far above Earth’s radioactive surface. Now, one hundred juvenile delinquents are being sent on a dangerous mission: to recolonize the planet. It could be their second chance at life… or it could be a suicide mission.

Clarke was arrested for treason, though she’s haunted by the memory of what she really did. Wells came to Earth for the girl he loves – but will she ever forgive him? Bellamy fought his way onto the transport pod to protect his sister, and Glass managed to escape, only to find that life on the ship is just as dangerous as she feared it would be on Earth. In a savage land, the hundred must fight to survive. They were never meant to be heroes, but they may be mankind’s last hope. (Beschrijving achterflap)
