Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Australia has been invaded. Nothing is as it was. Six teenagers are living out their nightmare in the sanctuary of a hidden valley called Hell. Alone, they make their own rules, protect what is theirs, and struggle for courage and hope in a world changed forever. Seeking supplies, allies, and information, the friends make forays into enemy territory, drawing on nerve and resourcefulness they never even knew they had. As the risks become greater, so too do the sacrifices they must make. Intense, passionate, and compulsive, The Dead of Night continues the frighteningly real story begun in Tomorrow, When the War Began.

Review:

"Once again, Marsden's story is riveting because he makes it feel so real....Thoughtful explorations of the nature of fear, bravery, and violence...add depth and balance to the edge-of-the-seat action." Horn Book

Review:

"Though it's still a superior adventure tale, it lacks the provocative edge and hard-hitting moral challenges of the author's best work." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"[R]ealistically depicted human conflicts make the book much more than just an exciting apocalyptic adventure....Although this sequel can stand on its own, readers of Tomorrow will find it far more satisfying." School Library Journal

Review:

"[A] strong adventure story, a little romance, and an excellent psychological study." VOYA

Synopsis:

War rages on! The second installment of the internationally bestselling Tomorrow series is even more action-packed than the first...

A few months after the first fighter jets landed in their own backyard, Ellie and her five terrified but defiant friends struggle to survive amid a baffling conflict. Their families are unreachable; the mountains are now their home.

When two of them fall behind enemy lines, Ellie knows what must happen next: a rescue mission. Homer, the strongest and most unpredictable among them, is the one to take charge. While others have their doubts about his abilities, Homer has no choice but to prove them wrong - or risk losing everything to the enemy.
