Review: Day 21 by Kass Morgan

Day 21No 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.

Spoiler Alert: Day 21 is the sequel in The Hundred series, which means spoilers run rampant in this review. Read here for my review of The 100.

Review

I believe I enjoyed Day 21 just as much as The 100, but for different reasons. The need to read the next instalment isn’t as fierce as it was with The 100. I think the ending was squared off nicely, but knowing what was coming downplayed it some.

The characters were far more likeable this time ’round. They’ve had the chance to grown on me. I think it helps several of the other 100 not previously mentioned in The 100 were making more of an appearance in Day 21.  The expansion of character cast gives more dimension to the relationships between characters and doesn’t overly focus on the main characters. It also gives you a break from the love stories.

The love stories were ok, although I didn’t like Clarke and Bellamy’s romance ARC. I realise it’s been three weeks, but the chopping and changing of those two did not help their declarations of love. Just calm down.

I am curious to know what happens next with Clarke’s parents and Kendall. Actually I think the idea of Kendall and her psychopathy is the most intriguing thing about what could come next.

I’m kind of bummed more of the colony has come down, although I guess it’s good in a way. The story would become stale if the 100 got too comfortable. I’m excited to see what happens with the changes in dynamics, but I really hope the Earthborns can make peace with the 100. I just want everyone to get along!

I still don’t think the show is better, but I can understand a few more things now. Although I still would like to know who the hell Jasper and Finn are!
