Weeks after landing on Earth, the Hundred have managed to create a sense of order amidst their wild, chaotic surroundings. But their delicate balance comes crashing down with the arrival of new dropships from space.
These new arrivals are the lucky ones—back on the Colony, the oxygen is almost gone—but after making it safely to Earth, GLASS’s luck seems to be running out. CLARKE leads a rescue party to the crash site, ready to treat the wounded, but she can’t stop thinking about her parents, who may still be alive. Meanwhile, WELLS struggles to maintain his authority despite the presence of the Vice Chancellor and his armed guards, and BELLAMY must decide whether to face or flee the crimes he thought he’d left behind.
It’s time for the Hundred to come together and fight for the freedom they’ve found on Earth, or risk losing everything—and everyone—they love.
OK I have to keep telling myself how completely different Homecoming and the other books are from the TV series. Besides having the same title and some character names, they are completely different things.
Like, Clarke and Bellamy need to move over! It is all about Luke and Glass. I love their relationship, it seems the most genuine and it the one and I most invested in. Basically the story could be all about them and I would be so so happy. Although maybe Glass could develop some sort of skill? Anything to make her an asset to the team. She only ever seems to do stuff to protect Luke. It would be nice if she could branch out, even a little.
What I did enjoy is how different Earth became with the arrival of the drop-ships. There are subtle shifts in the balance of power. Rules are implemented and the 100 must learn to get along not only with those already on Earth but also those that they thought that they had left behind for good.
Homecoming is apparently the last book in the series. If so it ended in a great place. All questions were answered (well the major ones any ways) and there was enough information that you can use your imagination to continue the story. If there are more books on the way then there is so much more to explore. Either way, the ending greatly pleased me.
