It was awesome. I read the whole book in a day. It was one of those books that grabs you and pulls you into the story like you are there with Ellie and her friends. I laughed and cried with Ellie, not many books can make me do that. The author is a genius!! The other books fromt he series are the same way. AWESOME!!!!!!

The Killing Frost is probably the most intense and tragic book in the Tomorrow When the War Began Series. It opens with all of the characters really struggling to come to terms with their own inner demons. Instead of drawing together, though, they begin sniping at each other. The stress takes its toll on this group of teens in a very realistic fashion. Once again, not content to sit around and let the enemy run amok in their country, they decide to strike back. They choose a target that is the most dangerous to date, but also far more strategic . Which means things are going to go horribly, horribly wrong. Plot John Marsden tells a gripping tale that keeps us on the edge of our seats. This story moves along at a faster pace than either of the two previous books and almost never lets up. As a result, I finished it in just three days – it was impossible to put down. While the plot careens along, Marsden doesn’t let up on his characters either. They have emotional as well as physical challenges that test not only themselves, but the bonds of their friendship. They might be in this war together, but when it comes right down to it, it’s the character you least expect that stands up and does what needs to be done. Characters The characters are all so incredibly real, it’s hard to remember they’re all just figments of our imaginations. I love how the author forces them to deal with the realities of the world they live in, rather than just existing alongside those realities. These are teens, afterall, and believably so. Even though they perform a number of truly selfless acts, they can’t escape the fact that at their ages, so much of their world revolves around them. Marsden crafts them beautifully so that we never forget this about them. Bottom Line A Killing Frost is a thrill-ride from the opening pages. It takes us on a heart-pounding journey through a fictional world we’d never want to live in, and yet we’re somehow better for having read about it.

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. 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.

Lots of typo's. I love the series, but there are a lot of mis-spellings and mistakes. Where are the editors?! If I were John Marsden, I'd be pretty upset.

Had a great time with this book. Even though it may have been a little far fetched as to the luck of the main characters, it was at the same time, possible. John Marsden did have you wondering the fate of the characters and also how they would evolve. Extremely fun and kept you wanting to read more.
