Publisher's Summary

The seventh and final volume in the award-winning Tomorrow series.

After six incredible books, John Marsden has written the final volume and a last adventure for Ellie, Lee, Homer, Fi, and Kevin. It may be the end of the series, but does it mean the end to Australia as we know it or the end of the war? Or both?

What the critics say

"Ellie, the narrator, is a strong female character and the weight of her leadership responsibilities and the urgency of the situations the group faces are vividly conveyed. The action sequences are gripping and there is an expected amount of violence. The confusion, depression, and tensions that follow the end of the fighting are also realistically depicted." (School Library Journal)
"Marsden is at his exciting, if somewhat improbable, best." (Booklist)
"As always, the plot keeps readers on the edge of their seats....An outstanding story of friendship, courage, and survival." (Kirkus Reviews)

Aussie Red dawn

This is a long but good series that is intended for the younger set and promoted by Audible kids. It is a lot like Red Dawn but only the plot line. The story is a lot different. I am 68 years old and I enjoyed it, although I did not get the whole 7 book series. I got books 1,2,3, and 7 and must say I don't feel like I missed a thing. That is a good way to get this series unless you really get into it and want to do the whole 7 books. A good listen if you can suspend disbelief and let the drama unfold. Solid four stars.

One of the best series EVER!!

I went through this series one right after the other. And this is my second time around. I know I will be back at it in another couple of years. I'm definitely going to keep it around! I loved the books, the author and especially the narrator. She is a wonderful job on this series!

Will I find another series as good?

I've said that this whole series is great and I have nothing but praise for it. The only thing is that I am not very confident that I'll find another series of Audio books as good as this one. One thing I liked about this was that it never actually said what country the invaders were from, I really appreciated that because if Australia was invaded who's to say what country it would be. I have seen the movie of the first book and there's talk about making two more movies, I thought that the movie was very faithful to the book apart from a few minor differences. I really enjoyed all of these books and I highly recommend them to anyone of all ages

Best series ever

I have read these books around 20 yrs now … and they still are my favorite series … just listened to them all in a week and a half time .. and I felt everything again.. the hurt, excited, the fear, the joy, the loss… and I will reread them next year again…
Started them at 14yrs old and now I am 34… really recommend them to every one!

Ellie writes, “War can never be forgotten.”

This is a beautiful story of ugly and all too real possibilities. This teenagers strove so hard and suffered so much. All the while Ellie is developing her philosophy of life. In the end one suspects she’ll do okay. However, those of us living in the real world must do what she thought at the beginning of the series and pay attention to the every part of the world to help those in dire straits. If we do, maybe someday we prove Ellie wrong because there will be no more wars for people to remember.

Brilliant Ending

The final novel of the Tomorrow series, John Marsden continued to entertain us with the action-packed storyline and deep, suble exploration of the inner world of each character. Exciting and full of twist, emotional yet undoubtly beautiful.

Though personally I find the part with Camp 23 a little disturbing, but it does however enables the novel to further mirror the reality. It's the closest account to a real war possible.

Suzi Dougherty's continues to use her excellent narrating skills to further puntuate the storyline. Well done, a great novel
