Weeks after crash-landing onto a rugged, nearly unpopulated planet Earth, the Hundred have managed to create a sense of order amidst their wild, chaotic surroundings. They work together to feed, shelter, and protect one another from countless dangers, including attacks by violent Earthborns. But their delicate balance comes crashing down with the arrival of new dropships from home--dropships carrying Glass and Luke, as well as the Vice Chancellor and his armed guards.

Suddenly, Bellamy must flee transgressions he thought he had left behind in space, as Wells struggles to maintain his authority on Earth. And while Clark searches for clues about her parent's whereabouts, she finds herself torn between finding them and helping the injured new arrivals in camp. Lives hang in the balance, as the Colonists find themselves fighting not just attackers from the outside, but also enemies from within

It's an end of an era. Well, for the book series, anyway. I'm sad to see it end, it's a sort of guilty pleasure for me, since if you've read the books, you know it's more character driven than Sci-Fi,or anything else. Like the show, the series goes into depth in the characters, how they change, how they think when they're in a dire situation. It's like an experiment into ones psyche. Unfortunately, for the books, there are too many characters being focused on for you to really get to know them.
