Publisher's Summary

The second book in the internationally best-selling the Tomorrow, When the War Began series."There was a crashing sound from the bushes. I spun round, wondering if this was my death, the last movement I would even make, the last sight I would see...."It's tough surviving in Hell. But sometimes Hell can be a haven. Their country has been invaded. Their homes have been occupied by strangers, or destroyed. Their families are facing death at the hands of a merciless enemy. But one group of teenagers, fugitives in a remote valley, will never give in. Not without a fight. But sometimes courage demands too high a price.

Not just for teenagers, great second book!

We started with the first book which we watched as a film first and then listened to the audiobook. After that we were of course desperate to see what happened next so we got this book pretty quickly, shame its not planned to come out on film though. This was a great follow up and dealt with difficult themes involved in any conflict such as death and loss very well. It also covered what the usual teenager would be going through but of course they had to deal with it in a very alien situation, they had no parents/adults to turn too and were all alone. Not only did they have to cope with the war but the usual struggles being teenager can bring. This book grabbed us just as much as the first one, we just wanted to keep reading to find out more. Its quite amazing how the author John Marsden, who was a middle aged man when he wrote this has captured the thoughts and feelings of teenagers very well in what is a very stressful and alien situation. Can't recommend this series of books highly enough. Again as we said in our previous review on the first book don't be put off by the classification that audible/book publisher gave to this book as its suitable for far more than just 11-13 year olds. We are adults and we loved this book as well as the others. If you enjoy a well written, well narrated story with three dimensional characters then give this series of books a try and leave your preconceptions behind. If you love apocalyptic stories then you'll love these books.
