***I received an e-galley of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review***

***This is part of a series. There could be spoilers of things that happened in the other book(s) so if you haven't read it and don't want to know things that happened, please stop reading now.*** 

The Story:

Overall, I still found the storyline to be interesting. And it was a pretty quick read for me. I found the pacing to be good.

This story picks up close to where the first book left off. The juveniles have been on Earth for twenty-one days now and  there still doesn't seem to be a sign that any of the Colonists are coming down to join them. They must figure out how to survive, when there are others that want them gone. 

I feel like there was a lot more drama in this book than in the first. And there were a few things that I saw coming. But it didn't stop me from reading the story. Because even though there were a few plot points that I guessed before they happened, some were still able to surprise me. 

But I felt like I have more questions than answers so far. 

I really liked that they were able to explore Earth a bit more. And that they were able to learn some things about the plants and things around them. I am really intrigued by the Earthers and want to get to know more about them.

I did enjoy the book enough to want to find out what happens next. 

The Characters:

I like that the main characters all have flaws. Most of them each have past decisions that haunt them. Yet they don't regret what they have done because they did the thing they thought was best. 

Clarke: She is struggling with what she did up on the ship before getting confinement. I like that after everything that she has been through she still has hope. She can be stubborn and determined. I like that she wants to figure things out on Earth and will do whatever she can do complete this. I was a bit frustrated with her character a couple times due to the romantic drama. But overall, I am interested to find out what will happen to her next.

Wells: I feel that he is doing what he can to protect the group and help them at the same time. He still shows that he is a natural leader. 

Bellamy: I found Bellamy to be a bit of a jerk. There were moments where I really like his character, then others when I am not sure if I like him that much. I think I understand why he reacted the way he did to a certain situation. But I struggle a little bit with how he handled it. 

Glass: I was really interested in her storyline. I really like being able to still know some of the stuff that is happening on the ship through her character. She does have a little bit of drama happen with her character. And I might not like her past decision, but I feel that I have an understanding of why she did what she did. I feel bad for her. And I really want to find out what is going to happen to her character next. 

My Recommendation:

I think if you loved/liked the first book, then you might enjoy this continuation. Although at times the drama frustrated me, I am left wondering what will happen next. Which means I will probably read the next book.
