It has been reported today by Entertainment Weekly that Kass Morgan, author of the best-selling book series, The 100, is penning the fourth installment. It is to be called, Rebellion.
The 100 books that circles around post-apocalyptic young adults about their return and survival on Earth, after living in a space colony for three centuries inspired the hit CW drama, The 100. Although, similarities between book and show are vague.
The fourth book, entitled, Rebellion follows its predecessor, Day 21. Yet, the description of Rebellion, resembles a very close situation that is currently happening on the show.
Here is the official summary of Rebellion:
Centuries after nuclear war destroyed our planet, humanity struggles to rebuild. It’s been a month since the dropships landed and the Colonists joined the Hundred on the ground. The teens, once branded juvenile delinquents, are now leaders among their people.
The Colonists and the Earthborns are celebrating their first holiday together when, to everyone’s horror, they’re attacked by a group of strangers whose unusual battle cries fill the air. The newcomers kill scores of people, seize prisoners, and pillage crucial supplies. When hotheaded Bellamy and his analytical girlfriend Clarke discover that Wells, Octavia and Glass have been captured, they vow to get them back at all costs. But as they go after their new enemies, Bellamy and Clarke find themselves increasingly at odds, unable to agree on a plan to save their friends.
Meanwhile, Wells, Octavia, and Glass are being slowly brainwashed by their captors, religious fanatics with one goal: to grow their ranks and “heal” the war-ravaged planet… by eliminating everyone else on it.
But centuries of radiation exposure have taken their toll, forcing the cult to take drastic steps to survive. And unless the rescue party arrives soon, the teen captives will face a fate more terrifying than anything they could imagine. In this thrilling fourth installment, the hundred fight to protect the people they love on the dangerous planet they always dreamed of calling home.
The 100 Rebellion will hit book stores and Amazon December 6th, 2016.
