      Plot summary: Following the tragic end of The Dead of the Night, Ellie and her friends are back in Hell. It's now six months since the invasion, and they decide that they should head for Cobbler's Bay and see if they can do some damage there. The journey to Cobbler's Bay brings an unexpected reunion, and a fairly spectacular plan. Thoughts: This is the book in the series that broke my heart the most when I was a kid. This is the one that teaches you - much like Deathly Hallows does - that war is [...]

      Every time I pick up another book in the Tomorrow series to re-read, I'm immediately hit by nostalgia for the first times I read them - and the third installment, The Third Day, The Frost (also published as A Killing Frost), is the book where shit gets really serious.Picking up shortly after the end of book two, the teens find themselves struggling to decide what to do next, and how to continue avoiding the army and colonists that have invaded Australia. This is a far darker book than the first [...]

      oh my god.

    • Noelle says:

      This review contains unavoidable spoilers for the first and second books in The Tomorrow Series but minimal spoilers on A Killing Frost so read at your discretion. Ready? Okay!It’s easy to think that there is no way Ellie and Co. can top the demolition of a bridge and the destruction of an entire city block, but never underestimate just how far the teens are willing to go and just how sick they are of sitting around looking at each other in Hell. Ellie and friends have been hiding out for week [...]

      This review was originally posted on The Moonlight LibraryThe Third Day, The Frost, also known in the US as A Killing Frost, is set six months into the war, and our kids are tired. Exhaustion is a constant companion, but they can’t rest for long. They know their freedom will only last so long and they are determined to fight for their country.On a scouting trip to see if they can do anything about Cobbler’s Bay, a major port in the invasion, they discover Kevin in a work party and set to lib [...]

      **check out my review for Tomorrow, When the War Began for my take on the series as a whole** I am plowing through these books, which is a shame because there are so many great passages and lines that I know I should pause to soak in, but I’m too dang anxious! Suffice it to say, I grew to love each of these characters so freaking much since book 1, that I think the only reason I didn’t cry when a major character died was because I was too numb. Too dead inside to accept it. As amazing as the [...]

    • Kandi says:

      I had read the plot summaries for all of the Tomorrow Series books and knew which characters would die. Even though I knew the characters that would die, I didn't know how or when. When I read the part where Robin diesI was crushed. Knowing she would die versus reading how she died, and actually reading that part brought me to tears. It was such a fast death moment here, the next gone. Like Ellie says, she just disappeared. I hated Captain Harvey so much, especially after how he treated Ellie an [...]

      3rd book of Tomorrow series.This is Cobbler’s bay book. Reading this book is like seeing a good action movie: you will see how a group of teenagers go to attack a strategic harbour. Somethings go well, and somethings go wrong, one of them terribly wrong.I think the author tries to tell us that we don’t have to forget that this is war, and war is ugly. I like this, though I wish the group would always win. The end is a little too far-fetched, but the group deserves a reprieve.

    • Cherie says:

      It took me some time to get through this story because I stopped at 33% done and had to wait to get it back from the library. Re-reading the first part over was necessary because I wanted to make sure I hadn't missed anything. No. It was the same. The typos in the ebook copy are annoying. I was amazed at some of the things this group of kids have done. Amazed at how lucky they were not to get caught and some of the ideas they came up with. I wonder, as I read, how it would be today. It is hard t [...]

    • Agne says:

      Oh yeah, I was quickly reminded why I love this series. It really grips me and the pages turn super fast. It retains the serious YA tone of the previous ones and the emotional parts are pretty hard-hitting. Actions with both tangible and moral/emotional consequences are what make this stand out from many other teen "adventures". The story is still sort of plausible, maybe a bit less so than in the previous ones, but I think the balance between overly lucky and overly unlucky situations is manage [...]

    • C. says:

      I'm having a problem with this series: aside from the obvious fact that Marsden realised he was onto a good thing and decided to prolong for six books and then another series what really could have been dealt with in a trilogy, it all seems too bad to be true.I had this problem in, I think, the fifth Harry Potter book. You remember Dolores Umbridge? She and the things she did just seemed so horrible, so unreasonable, that it was no longer realistic. Obviously, HP is fantasy so by definition it's [...]

    • Brendan Nicholls says:

      Note some SPOILERS will be discussed. The third book hits the ground running and has the group continuing the war against the invasion, the biggest positive in the storytelling is the change in formula. The first two books lead to an explosion and a depressing conclusion, this still has a bleak ending but has set a change for the next novel in the series. Harvey the bigot traitor from the last book makes a return, much to the shock of Elle and her group who believed him to be dead. They bombed t [...]

    • Svenja says:

      Am Anfang ist die Erzählweise ein wenig schwerfällig. Die Clique ist nach den Geschehnissen aus den ersten beiden Teilen kaputt, aber mit neuen Plänen kommt das Leben in die Gruppe zurück.Die zweite Hälfte ist dadurch wesentlich spannender. Aber gerade dadurch, dass die Freunde nicht ununterbrochen irgendwelche Sachen in die Luft sprengen und auch mal psychisch an ihren Taten zu knabbern haben, sind die Bücher so authentisch.Ganz schlimm fand ich aber das Ende. Auch nach 1000 maligen lesen [...]

    • Cass -Words on Paper says:

      This series is so good! Just getting the series one by one as I go along. Makes it more suspenseful that way. :POMG! OHHHHHHH LORDY LORDY LORDY.Phew. This one was intense. I don't even know what to say other than that. Read this series. Just I'm speechless. My heart! I feel so downcast, this book was all over the place. When I say that, I mean that in a good way. Just. Ahhhhh!!!I'm not waiting a minute longer. Off I go to order the next book in the series. I HAVE TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!!!* Wi [...]

      Read all my reviews on urlphantomhiveoklikes It's been years since I read the Tomorrow series, but A Killing Frost is the book that stayed with me the most as it sort of broke my heart. Their plans are getting bolder and more thrilling, but they will also find out that these things are not without consequences. As a kid I liked this series a lot. I would like to re-read them sometime to see if they can stand the time.

    • Esther says:

      I'd forgotten the sad part of the ending, so I'm crying over that. But the relief part of the ending - that was, well, a relief!This series is so much better than I remembered it from high school - all the detail, the complexity, the moral dilemmas, and the amazing characters. It really paints such a vivid picture of what these experiences were like for Ellie and her friends. I love it.

    • Mish says:

      I wasn’t expecting this book to get even better. Its heart pumping action as the teenagers pushes themselves to the limits in mind, body and soul when they take on a bigger target and hit enemy line where it hurts the most. It’s a ripper of a book and it actually feels like a war zone.

    • Louise says:

      I've been sucked in and it's getting better. This one had no awkward sex scenes, were packed with action and once again I couldn't stop reading. It's easy reading and YA, but I'd recommend it for dystopian fans. Also, the proofreading is much better!

    • Zoey says:

      4.5★Definitely the best in the series so far

    • Ashley says:

      After reading so many fantasy YA and Middle-Grade it's almost jarring to read this series. It's so saaaad ahhhhh

    • Bodosika Bodosika says:

      Not my thingI give it 1 star

    • Sarah says:

      Despite being less than half way through the series, this feels like the climax of the story in many ways and it is indisputably a major turning point for the characters and plot. It's my favourite in the series because I don't think Marsden betters the action sequences, tension and character development in any of the other books. (view spoiler)[And it's the most moving and tragic. (hide spoiler)]Here's my review of the series as a whole.When The Wire first came out, it was hailed as the greates [...]

      I missed you so!!!!!!!!!!Alrighty A Killing Frost, which I mistakenly referred to as "A touch of Frost" which is something completely different. I loved the first two installments of this series, so I was surprised when I start the third one and its just not doing it for me, like at all.Ellie and the gang are still trying to take down the invading army with little to no outside information, they are tired and hungry and getting on each others nerves. You know who is getting on my nerves? Ellie T [...]

      "Lo único que podía hacer ahora era sobrevivir al instante siguiente, al minuto siguiente"Wow. Wow. Wow.Los dos libros anteriores los leí a principio del año pasado, pero no me había animado a leer este porque los que siguen todavía no están traducidos (aunque, tal vez los lea en inglés) y sentí que extrañaba a los personajes cuando lo comencé. Eso es algo muy bueno de la saga, les tomas mucho cariño a cada uno de los personajes que cuando volves a ellos sentís esa sensación de "es [...]

      Oh God! I am addicted to the Tomorrow series.I berated myself for having those books on my kindle and not starting them until 2 days ago. Was it really two days? I feel like I have lived so much since then! Well, I suppose I did, in my head.These books have been around for long I guess, but last year I saw the movie of the first book, Tomorrow, When the War Began and got intrigued. I got my hands on the entire series and waited for the mood to strike for some guerilla action!I have gotten tired [...]

    • Lukas (LukeLaneReads) says:

      Another great entry.In this entry we catch up with the group as they take on their biggest military target to date; Cobbler's Bay. The Bay has been referenced in the other books yet I always assumed it would be attacked in the finale book, which I was wrong about, and from the end of this book it's clear that the series will be going in a completely different direction to the one I had first assumed.The suspense of the attack is handled (as always by this point) brilliantly, with even the more o [...]

      Entre 1993 y 1999, John Marsden publicó una saga de siete novelas situadas en su Australia natal con un controvertido argumento que buscaba responder a una serie de inquietantes preguntas: ¿qué pasaría si su país fuese repentinamente invadido? ¿Se someterían al nuevo poder regente, o habría quien se enfrentase al invasor? ¿Cómo respondería el resto del mundo a la conquista de Australia? Aprovechando la publicación en España del tercer volumen de la saga, Mañana: muerte blanca, de l [...]

      No, no, no, no Ese final ese epílogo no.Después de seis meses, la guerra continúa, Ellie junto a sus amigos -Homer, Lee, Fi, y Robyn- deciden cometer nuevas hazañas contra la guerra.Me fascino. Estoy atónita con el capítulo y el epílogo de este libro tengo una gran nostalgia porque los próximos libros no están traducidos, y tengo tantas preguntas, tantas dudas, tantas ganas de saber qué va a pasar con Ellie y los demás.(view spoiler)[La muerte de Robyn no no no puedo.

      Let me start out by saying, please please please read the other two books in the series before you pick up this one. THE KILLING FROST, also called The Third Day, The Frost in some places, is the third book in the Tomorrow Series. Ellie and her friends are in much the same position as they were at the end of the second book, but things change fast. THE KILLING FROST is packed with a lot of action for the characters of the book. One of the friends they lost track of in the earlier books is found [...]
