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 recolonize 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 pair of 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.
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

This was an enjoyable sci-fi story, and there were lots of individual stories going on within the main storyline.
I liked the characters in this, and it was interesting the way the story followed so many characters, and each characters individual problems all fitted into the main storyline. Each character had their own problems and agenda’s though, and it was clear how things could become difficult when all these agenda’s didn’t mesh!
The storyline itself took place over quite a short period of time, so it felt like we got lots of beginnings of individual storylines, but not a lot else. If I had one complaint I think that would be it!
There were a couple of romances going on, which were fairly interesting, but the story seemed to end too quickly, and I want to know what happens next!
Overall; good sci-fi story,
7 out of 10.
