The Tomorrow series is a collection of seven books written by John Marsden, which follows the journey of a group of teenagers as they struggle to survive in a world turned upside down by war. The series is set in Australia and explores themes of survival, friendship, and love amidst the chaos of war.

The first book in the series, Tomorrow, When the War Began, introduces us to the main characters, a group of seven friends who decide to go on a camping trip in the remote wilderness of their country. Upon their return, they discover that their hometown has been invaded by a foreign military force, and their families have been taken captive. The teenagers must band together to fight against the enemy and free their loved ones, all while struggling with the harsh realities of war and their own personal fears and doubts.

The second book in the series, The Dead of the Night, picks up where the first book left off, with the teenagers continuing their fight against the enemy. However, they soon realize that their actions have consequences, and they must face the moral dilemmas of war and the impact it has on their own humanity. The series continues in this vein, with each book exploring different aspects of war and its effects on the human psyche.

One of the strengths of the series is its portrayal of the teenagers as realistic, flawed individuals who are forced to grow up quickly in order to survive. Marsden does an excellent job of depicting the struggles and conflicts that arise within the group, as well as the personal demons that each character must confront. The characters are relatable and well-rounded, and their experiences are both heart-wrenching and inspiring.

Another aspect that makes The Tomorrow series stand out is its depiction of the Australian landscape. Marsden's descriptions of the rugged wilderness, with its lush forests and rocky terrain, make for a vivid backdrop to the story. The setting also adds a sense of isolation and danger, as the teenagers are cut off from the rest of the world and must rely solely on their own skills and resources to survive.

The Tomorrow series is also notable for its commentary on the nature of war and its impact on society. Through the eyes of the teenagers, the reader sees the destructive power of conflict and the toll it takes on both the individual and the community. Marsden's message is clear: war is a senseless and devastating force that should be avoided at all costs.

Overall, The Tomorrow series is a powerful and thought-provoking work of fiction that will stay with readers long after they have finished the final book. Marsden's writing is engaging and emotive, and his characters are well-developed and relatable. The series is a must-read for anyone who enjoys stories of survival and human resilience in the face of adversity.

One of the reasons why the Tomorrow series has remained so popular is its ability to appeal to a wide range of readers. Young adults, in particular, will find the characters relatable and the themes of friendship and personal growth especially poignant. However, the series also contains enough depth and complexity to satisfy adult readers, who will appreciate the series' exploration of the human condition and its commentary on the nature of war.

In conclusion, The Tomorrow series is an exceptional collection of books that explores the enduring human spirit in the face of war and adversity. Marsden's writing is superb, and his characters are both relatable and inspiring. The series is a must-read for anyone who appreciates great storytelling and thought-provoking themes. With its powerful message and engaging narrative, The Tomorrow series is a true masterpiece of young adult fiction.

Description from the publisher:

Tomorrow, When the War Began

Somewhere out there, Ellie and her friends are hiding. Their country has been invaded. Everyone they know has been captured. Their world has changed overnight. They've got no weapons - except courage. They've got no help - except themselves. They've got nothing - except friendship. How strong could you be if the world was full of people trying to kill you?

The Dead of the Night

The Dead of Night continues this gripping story about teenagers facing warfare amid the intensity of first love. Would you sacrifice everything to save your country and your family?

The Third Day, The Frost

Ellie and her friends have achieved more than they ever thought possible as an unarmed bunch of amateur teenage fighters. But it's not enough. The war wages on, their families are in captivity, and their country is on its knees. Hiding back in Hell, the friends face a big question: what to do next? The gang have another success when they manage to rescue Kevin. He returns to them equipped with a new knowledge of explosives. Suddenly the question of what to do next becomes clear - launch an attack on the major enemy target of Cobblers' Bay.

Darkness Be My Friend

Darkness is the friend and enemy of those who hunt by night. Ellie and her friends have found safety after months of fighting. But the New Zealand Defence Force needs their help to infiltrate occupied Australian territory. And so the friends must fight on.

Burning for Revenge

Ellie and her friends are more determined than ever to make an impact on the enemy. But the constant fighting is beginning to take its toll on the group. Kevin is suffering an emotional breakdown, and the friendship that has kept the gang together for so long is under strain. And while there is no time for love in a time of war, Ellie can't forget her feelings for Lee...

The Night is for Hunting

Twelve months have passed since the invasion. Ellie has lost friends, she has taken many lives, and she is still as disgusted by violence as she is determined to stand up to the invaders. Now the friends find themselves back in their sanctuary of Hell, caring for a band of feral children whose lives have been destroyed by the war. Meanwhile, the conflict intensifies, and the enemy draws closer...

The Other Side of Dawn

The war is at a turning point. The enemy is growing weaker and more desperate. And so is Ellie. As the conflict intensifies around her, she is captured and separated from her friends. Overwhelmed by all she has lost, Ellie wonders if she has the strength to survive the final conflict - and if she can live with the consequences of everything she has done.
