The Hunger Games meets Lost in this spectacular new series: soon to be airing on US TV channel CW, home of The Vampire Diaries and Gossip Girl

No one has set foot on Earth in centuries - until now.

Ever since a devastating nuclear war, humanity has lived on spaceships far above Earth's radioactive surface. Now, one hundred juvenile delinquents - considered expendable by society - are being sent on a dangerous mission: to re-colonize 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, the chancellor's son, came to Earth for the girl he loves - but will she ever forgive him? Reckless BELLAMY fought his way onto the transport pod to protect his sister, the other half of the only siblings in the universe. And GLASS managed to escape back onto the ship, only to find that life there is just as dangerous as she feared it would be on Earth.

Confronted with a savage land and haunted by secrets from their pasts, the hundred must fight to survive. They were never meant to be heroes, but they may be mankind's last hope.

I read this book because I’m blazing through the TV series and am hooked. If you like the TV show (Which despite my prolific speed of binge watching it I sometimes do and sometimes don’t...some of the writing in the show gets to me and my husband with too many stupid decisions made by main characters and too many failed plans) this may not be the book for you. It has very little to do with the TV show (at least book 1, I’ve not read the others yet). Only four characters from the book made it to the show. Once I realized that I just read it as it’s own entity. It’s pretty “teeny” with the focus on romance, but I liked the past and present stories mingling and I still really like the premise (which is why I started to watch the show in the first place and is why I wanted to read the book when I discovered it was a book). It wasn’t amazing but I’m willing to read the other books in the series to see where the author goes with it all which is why I’m giving it 3 stars instead of 2. Book 1 ends with a cliff hanger and much left unanswered.

This book was amazing, I hardly could put it down! The people are amazing and everything about it was so real, it made me smile, laugh, frown and I felt like i was there standing next to everyone. I love this book, that's the best way to put it.

This story actually differs quite a bit from the TV show (from what I can remember). The characters are a lot more complex and some of the alliances/factions that are seen in the TV show don't appear to be followed in the original book.
