These books are nigh on impossible to put down. So addictive.

I've read the first four books so far (as I haven't been able to find the last three books in my library yet), and for me, this series was a great surprise! I had been willing to read the Tomorrow series for years, but somehow I never really got to the point where I would buy and eventually read them. Till last year! And I may say that I thought it to be the best series I've read that year! This second book, I thought it to be thrilling, and I love the fact that (even though the things that happen are terrible) the story is original and full of suspense! I would recommend this book to a lot of people, but please read the first book first! ( )

We zijn een paar weken verder dan in het eerste boek, en nog steeds is Australië bezet. Een groep tieners hebben het geluk gehad dat zij niet thuis waren toen de invasie begon.

Hun verzet tegen de bezetters van het land gaat door. Ook in dit boek slaat het noodlot toe. Een van hun vind de dood, Zouden de vrienden het overleven? ( )

The story is just as gripping as the first book, but there were two areas of illogic that bothered me. The smaller one is the medical condition of Ellie's friend, Corrie. Corrie was shot in the back and brought to the local hospital. She remains unconscious, but without real medical care.
The larger illogic is the Harvey's Heroes camp. For being there at least a week, the teens learned almost nothing about the other enlistees and it's history. And when Harvey appears again, as a high ranking enemy officer, there is much disconnect.

But this group manages to pull several awesome missions together using whatever materials they have to hand. Another testament to Outback self-reliance. ( )

Everything gets more intense for the young friends caught in a war zone. The questions of what to do become less intense, as the kids feel that have no choice but to fight. I appreciated Marsden showing multiple sides of his characters; they are definitely flawed, and ultimately children stuck in an adult world. ( )

Damn this writing. I'd rather sleep. God how I'd lvoe to sleep. But I can't. It's been a long time since I had a peaceful night's sleep. Not since I went to Hell.
