    1. Our teen heroes are forced to evacuate Stratton with a bunch of feral orphan children when the soldiers get too close. Upon returning to Hell, the children decide to abandon the teens, who now feel responsible for them. After being rescued, they then celebrate Christmas.The plot doesn’t sound that interesting, but it really is. See, Ellie and Lee rescue the kids at gunpoint and fly out of Stratton with the other teens in a stolen truck. Upon abandoning the truck, it’s found one of the childr [...]

    2. Okay, I LOVE the Tomorrow series, but this one is undoubtedly the nadir. In this book, no lie, the teens stumble upon a pack of feral kids, lead them out into the bush, and baby-sit them. For the entire book. Don't worry, the series does recover in book 7, so if you've made it this far in the series, just stick it out.

    3. I think I started this 2 YEARS ago, and I have finally finished, thanks to the commute to uni :PIt's not that I didn't enjoy it, I just eventually forgot about it over time. So glad I began listening to it again, I can't wait to start the next (and last) book in the series!

    4. 3.5★A bit slow at times & there didn’t seem to be a lot happen in this book (a lot of just hiding out)but when things got going it was action packed with our group of teens coming face to face with the enemy soldiers more than once. Plus we get a lot of insight into Ellie & just how she is dealing with the war & how much it has changed her.This is the 2nd last book in this great series & it ends on a cliffhanger. I am really looking forward to the final book (The Other Side o [...]

    5. Ce tome m'a encore un fois transportée dans la chaleur étouffante du bush australien. Rien qu'en lisant le livre, j'avais la gorge sèche, la sensation d'avoir le visage plein de poussière, et j'entendais les moutons bêler au loin. Ce livre se vit totalement et pleinement, grâce à la plume géniale de l'auteur australien John Marsden qui a le chic pour nous décrire avec beaucoup d'authenticité et d'intensité les pensées et les nombreux états d'âme d'Ellie, notre jeune héroïne, qui [...]

    6. Hat mir besser gefallen als der letzte Teil und ich liebe die Reihe weiterhin.Trotzdem bin ich froh, dass ich nur noch das letzte Buch vor mir habe. Ich will endlich wissen, wie es für Ellie und Co endet.

    7. Aww man, only one more book to go now! I'm so glad I finally got my act together and started reading this series. Just loving it - although I admit that I thought this one started off a LOT slower than any of the others, and I was originally thinking that it was going to be the first three-star book of the series o.O but then of course it picked up and I got way more into it. I think it was just all the fuss over the kids at the start which just wasn't as thrilling as all the other stuff, and I [...]

    8. I was wrong. This was a bit slower paced and not quite as action packed as the previous books however for me it was even more emotional with adding the young feral children. I loved it! They cling to any normalcy they can like with the pseudo Christmas and playing games and telling stories. The little ferals They were strong and resilient how can we not admire them? I cried when they found Darina. I cried when Jack left weedy flowers for Ellie In the end this book was not a filler it was getting [...]

    9. Read all my reviews on urlphantomhiveoklikes This book is a bit slow at times, but still, looking back, quite a lot is happening as it becomes increasingly difficult to find food not just for themselves but also a couple of kids they have rescued, and then get lost. The end is nearing, and it is clear from this book. One more to go!

    10. Maybe 4.5 stars, maybe. There were a few real world topics this book touched on in a way i thought was a little disrespectful, but also true to said real world situations. Not a fan of bad things happening and the characters reactions not helping the situation.Lots more progress in this book. It matched the pacing of the previous book with high tension, suspense, action, and emotional tug of wars. New side characters brought both refreshing and devastating scenes to the story. Also, a new perspe [...]

    11. 3.5 STARS, enjoyed this one also and it is good to see the characters continue to develop and take on more 'adult' responsibilities. PLENTY OF ACTION

    12. Ellie and her friends have decided that it's time for them to leave Stratton and return to the safety of Hell. Their time in Stratton has given them a chance to heal, but also a chance to betray and be betrayed. Still reeling from Lee's actions, Ellie becomes determined to rescue a group of feral orphans. What Ellie hasn't counted on is that the orphans may not want to be rescued. This is the sixth book in the Tomorrow series (after Tomorrow, When the War Began, The Dead Of Night, The Third Day, [...]

    13. Ellie and her friends are still hiding out in Stratton, after deciding not to return to New Zealand. That was until their safety is threatened, they decide to return to Hell once more. This time with a group of reluctant feral children. Can they protect and feed themselves and the four kids. When the safety of Hell is threatened for the first time during the war. They have to decide where to go.This book takes place on May 22. In the city of Houghton, Australia. This is where they were invaded b [...]

    14. The Night Is For Hunting, the sixth book in the Tomorrow series by John Marsden, is as can't put it down as the previous ones. It has a different focus than before though. Less on Ellie, Homer, Lee, Fi and Kevin damaging the enemy and more on protecting themselves and nurturing the future by hiding where they are sure they will be safe, taking care of a bunch of feral kids they've rescued (against their will mind) and trying to remember the good times over the bad. I guess that is what this whol [...]

    15. This one wasn't quite as good as the others. I'm not sure why younger kids had to be added to the mix. It almost seems to me that the author had a contract to write so many books so he needed to add something so he could add another book. Once they get they kids to Hell, I don't understand why they don't ask the New Zealand people if they can take the children. New Zealand was willing to pick them up at the end of the last book so it wouldn't have hurt to ask if they could come get the children [...]

    16. I think a lot of people probably will like this book less than all the others. Mainly because by book 6 if you're still reading, it's because you've got the formula down, you expect some explosions and close calls, and you like that! (I do) This book doesn't follow the formula the previous 5 did, but the tension is still high. I have to say I was bored by the first half, but really appreciated that Marsden changed the storytelling, introduced some new characters that showed the reader another si [...]

    17. Conclusion: It is incredibly difficult to write a review for a book that is a continuation in a series. How can I say much that is meaningful without giving too much away?!This is the second last book in the Tomorrow series. Surprisingly, so late in the series, there is an introduction of some new characters. There is also some development of the existing characters.I think the biggest difference about this book was how most of the plot concentrated on the development of the new characters and t [...]

    18. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it was an interesting deviation in the overall plot, but the negative is that it didn't fix that deviating until the very end of the book. What I'm trying to say, all that really happens that is important is character growth and one other thing which I shall not say. I'm saying that if you didn't read this book and just went on to the book after you would be able to find out what happened fairly easily, because not much did happen. I enjoyed the change but I want [...]

    19. This is the 6th book and the 2nd last in the final series. The teens had to witness so much death in this book that it was emotionally exhausting to read. Also they soon discover that even their hiding place, ‘Hell’, is not safe any more as the enemy are closing in. The ending left me hanging so you know something very big is going to happen in the final book. I extremely anxious now to find out how it’s all going to end.

    20. The tomorrow series is a great series and it makes me want more books. The night is for hunting Is one of its outstanding books. There is a lot of suspense keeping the reader on their toes and making me not being able to take my eyes off the book. Overall is a terrific book the everyone should read.

    21. This book started out great, with a big chase/escape scene, and i thought, yes, here we go again! Unfortunately, 5 more young kids, who were little shits most of the time, were introduced. They ran away, and the other characters literally spent about 50 pages looking for them. after that it got back on track. I can't wait to read the last one!

    22. I think I liked this one the best so far. Not that the others were particularly lesser than this one, but I felt like there was something a little different, a bit more in this one, particularly the way the epilogue worked. It really leads up well to the final instalment.

    23. I'm so amazed Marsden still manages to make every single one of these books so engaging and exciting. The mood of this one is a bit different from the previous five, and now I'm really looking forward to the last book! Though, I will REALLY miss the series once it's over. :P

    24. Man, these are getting long. I'm getting to the point where I can't wait for them to be over. This one was definitely the least interesting so far, and I hope the final one gets exciting again.

    25. Quality Rating: Four StarsEnjoyment Rating: Four StarsIt's been a couple of years since I read the previous book in the Tomorrow series, and I was getting a little worried I'd forgotten too much or I wouldn't be able to get into it again. Luckily, I was wrong, and I fell right back into this story. Strangely enough, I think I remembered the majority of major events as they became relevant, and I whizzed through the book. It was very enjoyable.I'm amazed by how much detail there is in these books [...]

    26. Finally finishing this series, which it feels like I started a lifetime ago! War is brutal, and the more you get into the books, the more you feel that, and so maybe that is what explains my long break Whatever it was, I'm back and I plan on finishing this series now and continuing on with Ellie's Chronicles to follow This book starts a bit slower than the rest and really gives you a glimpse into the mental battle inside Ellie's head far more than the physical battle of the war A lot of us want [...]

    27. In this book Ellie and her friends decide to leave Stratton and go back to the Hell. When faced with a couple of difficult decisions, they decide to look after the Stratton orphans which they encountered multiple times before.I feel like this is one of the slower books in the series. It took about 100 pages for me to get interesting and catch my attention. And even then the orphan kids annoyed me to no end. The book is supposed to make you pity them, but I don't feel like their characters are lo [...]

    28. Another installment down, boredom is slowly starting to sink in. I feel like even the style of writing is snippy and lazy, missing many details. There's also some cringe worthy similes. At one stage a character is referred to as being as lazy as a glob of blu-tak Many of the chase scenes are becoming predictable, they're in a truck again! Steering widely behind the 'wobby wheel' again! I feel like many of the other books have met a purpose, whether it be to show the mental effects on war, to sho [...]
