I love this book! You can not put it down. It has a way of making you feel as if you are there or you know the characters, it all seems so real. It deserves more than 5 stars!

The Dead of Night picks up where Tomorrow When the War Began leaves off. The characters struggle with what they did and worry about their friends Corrie and Kevin. Hell is home and the only place they feel safe, but they also know that sitting around and doing nothing isn't a long-term plan. Once again, they feel compelled to do something. They explore beyond their immediate surroundings and stumble upon another group of free citizen who call themselves Harvey's Heros. After blowing up the bridge at Cobbler's Bay, Ellie and her friends bristle at being treated like kids by this new group and  feel more like captives than the warriors they are. But when the enemy gets too close for comfort, they need to make some tough decisions. Plot The plot is gritty, and as with Tomorrow When the War Began, it's difficult to put down once it really gets going. What makes it so gripping is that it's terrifyingly real. Unlike other young adult dystopian novels, it isn't a stretch to get to where these kids are. John Marsden doesn't rely on alien invasions or weird supernatural events to bring about his world. Everything that happens feels like a natural culmination of events that could really happen. Characters The core characters are strong and even the new cast members have more depth than you would expect from tertiary characters. Major Harvey in particular is complex and hard to pin down. Ellie and the others are deeply affected not only by what happened to Corrie and Kevin, but also by what they did. There are no quick fixes to the psychological trauma they experience which makes this book dark, but emotional and real. One of my favorite things about John Marsden is that he doesn't gloss over the aftermath and have his characters act as if they didn't just suffer horrible losses or inflict unimaginable pain on others. They're haunted by the things they've seen and done, the way human beings they are. Bottom Line The Dead of Night is a solid follow up to Tomorrow When the War Began and carries the story forward without losing the magic of the series. It builds on the plot and characterization from the first book and doesn't let up.

You have to read this book series it is the most outstanding book ever

These are very enjoyable reads about six teens in Australia who are camping when their country is invaded. Circumstances force them to become partisans. Marsden writes with good suspense, action and leaving you looking forward to the next volume. My two main complaints are: we never really find out who invaded Australia and the group never accumulates although they have numerous clashes with th enemy.

Even more chilling than the last one! This series is slowly joining my favorites. When I pick them up, I cannot put them down! I have to time my reading for I have at least a couple hours to plunge into Ellie's world. Marsden is a very convincing teenage girl.

I enjoyed the first two books of this series very much even with all the strange Australian words. Seemed pretty real and always a possibility for something like the takeover by a hostile country of one's homeland. Not sure I will buy another book in the series unless it's a final one because this story can only go on for so long, plus it is very expensive to purchase - around $9.99 for each nook book.

I saw the movie and noticed that is was based on a book, so I came to B&N to look for the nook books and was excited to see that it was a series of 7. Please read series in order! This is supposed to be a youth/teen book, but they did not write them this way when I was young. I recommend that parents glance through these books to be sure they think that their child can handle the "war time" theme. But anyway, i loved the series and really was sad when it was over!! In it's own way, this is educational on survival that unfortunately may be needed one day.

What a Masterpiece! John Marsden has once again left us in awe suspence. His 2nd book The Night Of dead is literally off its chain! I loved it! But it left me in tears especially what Ellie says about not loving Chris at the end.
