Overview

Burning for Revenge by John Marsden

From Hell to Stratton isn’t an easy trip, especially when the enemy’s headquarters lies somewhere in between. And that’s exactly where Ellie and her friends unwillingly find themselves — smack in the middle of the Wirrawee airfield. With only five of them against hundreds of armed soldiers, escape seems like a suicide mission. The odds aren’t good, and Kevin’s nervous breakdown isn’t helping matters.
Ellie and her compatriots are back, battling to stay alive and struggling to stay together in John Marsden’s latest book in the TOMORROW, WHEN THE WAR BEGAN series. High-speed truck chases, unexpected river journeys, and treachery by one of their own are just a few of the problems these Australian teens face in this gritty tale of war and survival.

Burning for revenge is a great action packed thriller. Burning for revenge is the fifth book in the tomorrow series. The tomorrow series is about 8 teenagers who go camping in the Australian bush. While they are gone their entire country is taken over. They return home to find their homes ransacked and the entire countryside on fire. They have to use wit and cunning to get out of many dangerous situations. In burning for revenge the New Zealand army has enlisted the help of the teenagers to try to destroy the Wirrawee airport but it is too much for one of the teenagers who then has a mental breakdown. The war has a devastating impact on all the teenagers. They have to see their own country burned. Their own parents turned into slaves. Their own houses inhabited by the enemy. The author of this book gave me a new perspective of life and just what it means to have freedom.

I loved this book! The title goes along with the book, and the suspense is exhilarating! Anyone how has followed the Tomorrow series (Tomorrow, When the War Began, The Dead of Night, A Killing Frost, and Darkness Be My Friend) is bound to enjoy this book. I highly recommend this book to anyone 13 and older, or a mature audience. The story is about teenagers, so I'm not sure if adults will relate as well.

This book was the most enthralling of the entire 'Tomorrow, When the War Began' series. I was on the edge of my seat throughout the entire book, just waiting to find out what new dangers Ellie and her friends would encounter next! I am anxiously awaiting the release of the next!
