I've Moved!

Hi all, just a quick note to say that I’m no longer going to be updating The Fictional Hangout at least on blogger. You can instead find a new and improved TFH over on Wordpress here, so remember to update your bookmarks and links! I’ve imported all the reviews from this site onto that one but have not gotten around to correctly formatting them all, so at least for the moment, if you’re interested in my older reviews then by all means feel free to use this site, it’s not going anywhere, it just won’t be updated.

The Hundred #1: The 100 by Kass Morgan (Hodder & Stoughton)

No one has set foot on Earth in centuries - until now.
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 re-colonize 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 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.
