Overview

The Other Side of Dawn is the long-awaited, riveting, final title in the Tomorrow series about a group of teenagers in war-torn Australia. Since their home was invaded by enemy soldiers and transformed into a war zone, Ellie and her friends have been fighting for their lives. They have learned survival skills out of necessity and taken care of each other through impossibly dark times. Now, with a roar like a train in a tunnel, the war has entered its final days. There’s no more sitting around, no more waiting. There’s only fast decisions, fast action, fast thinking—and no room to get it wrong. As the enemy forces close in on their hideout in Hell, Ellie, Fi, Homer, Lee, and Kevin, and their adopted group of orphaned children, find themselves facing the last chapter of their struggle for freedom. But it may just be the most dangerous yet. And not everyone will survive.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Although stunning action sequences have always been a hallmark of the series, its true excellence is due in large part to Marsden’s thoughtful exploration of the psychological costs of the teens’ heroic, violent exploits." In the closing sequence, he realistically examines the emotional turbulence of the sudden attack of peace…it may be time for Marsden to shut down his engines, but it’s been one heck of a ride." The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"As always, the plot keeps readers on the edge of their seats… an outstanding story of friendship, courage, and survival." Kirkus Reviews

“Marsden is at his exciting, if somewhat improbable, best when writing about Ellie’s single-handed train sabotage and the teens’ attempts to blow up a huge truck stop on the road to Cavendish.” Booklist, ALA

“The action sequences are gripping and there is an expected amount of violence.” School Library Journal

    Solid Ending

    I have read and enjoyed the whole series. I think it is an excellent option for the young reader looking to read adventure.

    Good Fun and Adventure

    It was a great ending to an amazing series which John Marsden kept real and believeable. It would have been an excellent and fantastic series if not for the somewhat happy ending. However, John Marsden did an amazing job with the characters and their journies in discovering themselves and the final paths each took at the end. He did end it with the predictable Hollywood ending and I think that's why I enjoyed the series.

    It's all over.........

    Omg, it's all over. I've read the entire series and I couldn't wait to read this one. Overall the book was great and I still couldn't put it down, but the ending left something to be desired. I was dissapointed that there wasn't much about the other characters and I was hoping for a more dramatic ending, one where the friends stayed together. It felt as though I was left with a lot that wasn't explained. Even though the ending wasn't what I expected, I still the loved the book and the ENTIRE series!!!!

    This was a great ending to the series

    I started reading the series about a month before I finished it. I had bought the first 3 at a bookstore, and when I realized there was 4 more, I knew I had to get them. When I ordered them online, I read a few reviews from other people who had read the series. Even though it focused mainly on Ellie, and you didn't hear about the other four at all, it had a good turn to it. And the ending was surprisingly good. You have to read it!!!

    The last one :(

    This was a great book but the ending was really bad. In this book they just really follow Ellie and almost forget about everyone else. In this book I think you see a lot of strengith in each character even Kevin. Make sure you read it with a box of tissues.
