"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." (Summary from goodreads.com)

I really enjoyed Day 21 a lot. I've been looking forward to this sequel all year because I really liked the first book and I couldn't wait to read what would happen next. (I'm also a big fan of the tv show). I thought that the first book in the series really focused on setting up the world and establishing the characters while this sequel was filled with twists and action. 

Day 21 is told in the perspectives of Clarke, Wells, Bellamy, and Glass. Clarke, Wells, and Bellamy were all part of the first 100 sent to test if earth is habitable. 21 days now have passed and they have discovered that they aren't the only humans on earth. Bellamy is also doing everything that he can to find his sister, Octavia. Meanwhile back on the ship, Glass is facing a difficult choice. 

Once again I loved that the reader gets to see what is going on down on earth with the 100, but also what is happening in space on the ship too. I thought that Clarke, Wells, Bellamy, and Glass were each developed more strongly in this book as well. I really enjoyed the different flashbacks that each character had in their chapters. It definitely helped me understand the characters and their actions better. I also loved that even the flashbacks provided some shocking twists and brought up the connections that these characters already shared in the past.  

I found it was hard to put this book down for long once I started reading. There were so many twists that I definitely never saw coming. I just loved that this book absolutely kept me on the edge of my seat. Then I especially love the world that Morgan has built. The world-building and setting were my favorite parts of the first book and I was thrilled to see that Morgan continued to expand on it in Day 21

Overall I loved Day 21. It is rare that I love the sequel more than the first book, but this was definitely one of those cases. I strongly recommend picking up this series. It's a story that will keep you guessing. I already can't wait to read the next book!
