Rating: 5 stars

I was so excited to finally be able to read this book because I love the spin off tv series “The 100.” This book did not disappoint my expectations. It was hands down my favorite book I have read so far. I think the reason why this book appealed to me so much is not only because it has a spin-off, but because I was so eager to hear the story be told by all the characters' own points of views. Each chapter was told by one of the main characters, bringing up flashbacks and jaw dropping moments that you would not expect to happen.
