It has been a long six months since Ellie and her friends returned home from a camping trip to find their families imprisoned by an enemy that threatens to steal Australia's freedom. Only they can stop this. Like seasoned soldiers, their methods have become extreme, even involving terrorism.
When she's not gathering food and supplies or running like prey to survive, Ellie wonders at what they've become: Are they now ruthless terrorists? The more involved and vicious it gets, the higher the stakes are raised. Everyone is fighting for their lives.
My Rating: 4/5
This is by far the best book in the series so far. It is darker and more emotional than the first two books combined. Marsden writes the characters very well, giving them alot of dimension. This book was action packed and very thrilling. The characters are starting to grow up as they start realising the cold hard reality of the situation they are in.
