Weeks after landing on Earth, the Hundred are finally starting to create order in their chaotic surroundings. But now, new dropships are arriving from space… and with them, disruption of the fragile sense of peace.

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.

Music Monday: What would Clarke listen to? (The 100)

Een paar dagen terug heb ik het derde deel van The 100 uitgelezen. Clarke Griffin is een van de hoofdpersonen en wordt vaak gezien als een van de leiders van de groep. Een bekend gezegde uit de televisie serie – die gebaseerd is op deze boeken – is: What would Clarke do?

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)
