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.
I am pleased with this last book. The ending I felt was incredibly rushed and predictable, however it was a satisfying conclusion and most likely my favourite book of the series. Surprisingly I really like the TV show inspired covers, most likely because I do love the TV show way more than the books.

Continuing straight on from the first novel, Homecoming begins with the drop ships having crash landed. However, with that comes new laws and conflict, through which the Hundred are opposed to due to the lives they have already built for themselves. So when the rules change, so do alliances, and Clarke and Bellamy will do anything to get things back to normal... or as normal as they can be.

Clarke as in all the previous novels is amazing. She is strong and determined, and will give up all her time to help those in need, no matter what. Bellamy too is a brilliant character, his strive the help his people is immense alongside his passion to help them survive; Bellamy's fight for what is right is very dominant throughout the novel. Then Glass, in this last novel I cannot work out whether I liked her or not. I felt as though she did whine a bit throughout this novel and really relied on others, however I was very pleased to see a growth of character towards the end of the novel by gaining some of the strength I respect in Clarke, becoming a more mature and stronger individual.

The plot of this novel was certainly full of action, danger and suspense; I could not turn the pages fast enough. However, it felt incredibly rushed, alongside the ending being far too perfect and predictable. Though I must say the death of an individual was incredibly surprising, I had not seen it coming at all.

Therefore Homecoming was a satisfying conclusion to this trilogy, but I must say I cannot wait for the next season of The Hundred on TV!
