I held my line. I knew from the war, if not from shooting rabbits, that we were safe enough for the first moments. It is too impossible to hit a target like us from a helicopter that's rocking and rolling and trying to find its target. But maybe this guy had new equipment or maybe he was a brilliant shot or maybe he was just plain lucky. Bullet holes tore through the ute like a huge metal punch was suddenly and roughly slamming a simultaneous line of them from our rear to our front.

Ellie has struggled to put the war behind her and lead a normal life. Although what's normal about your parents having been murdered; trying to run a farm and go to school; and bringing up a young boy who's hiding terrible secrets about his past?

    " This second book is good because we see a different side to Ellie. She has to deal with a number of different issues regarding the farm, her parents death and looking after Gavin. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 2/15/2014

    " Solid 4 stars. Didn't love the knife scene at the end; it came out of nowhere, and not in a believable way. But the rest of the book was good enough that it's still an amazing read. I think I just love this author. I'm going to try some more of his books when I finish Ellie. "

    " I don't think The Ellie Chronicles has quite the oomph that the original series does, but I still thoroughly enjoyed reading these books. I love seeing the subtle-yet-all-too-real struggles that have replaced all-out battles now that the war is officially over. Some people have complained that they got sick of all the talk about cows and everything. Honestly, it never got boring to me. I love Ellie, and I'm invested in her. I love reading about her life, and that was just another part of it. "

    " WoW... As a series goes or a trilogy of the main character of a series.. these books just keep getting better and better. I have to say I am happy with this book because it slows down a bit of the intensity and non stop action. It gets you more in the lives of Ellie and Gavin and really lets you get to know them as people. Then the intensity picks up and it's non stop all over again. As with all of the other books I've read regarding the 'When the war began' series and the 'Ellie Chronicles' trilogy, very well written. While reading you can actually picture yourself there in the thick of things with the characters. Loved it! "

    " I've been listening to this series from Tomorrow When the War Began to the Ellie Chronicles and with this book the reader changed and as you may know, the reader can make all the difference. This gal just isn't Ellie and it distracts from the story of her struggles after the war. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trufflebum | 1/9/2014

    " Gah this series is ok, Previous series is better though "Tommorow series" that is. It's ok though... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mateesha | 11/14/2013

    " If I was Ellie, I'd tie Gavin to a tree and leave him there. That kid would drive me crazy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa Bower | 10/28/2013

    " I enjoyed this one much less than the others in the series. Slightly disjointed, and a few surprises just sprung on the reader with the seeming casualness of afterthought. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nerida Hart | 10/1/2013

    " once again, tomorrow series was better, but still readable to find out what happens "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Annenz | 8/27/2013

    " I love this series, totally awesome!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dorothy | 8/23/2013

    " It had a couple of good action parts, but this new series does not live up to the original series. But Ellie is one of my favorite caharacters and so I keep reading them. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kyle Wadsworth | 8/8/2013

    " I just finished reading this book; it took me a year to read becusse I just wasn't into it. But I finally got round to reading it properly and I enjoyed reading it, but it lacks the 'power' of the tomorrow series, and does seem to be farming-based which gets boring fast. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 8/7/2013

    " Always an adventure, and always a good time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denis | 2/22/2013

    " Ellie Linton is one of the best characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindi | 12/18/2012

    " As exciting and compelling as one would expect! That John Marsden really knows how to write a page-turner! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rebecca | 11/25/2012

    " lazy lazy lazy. Pretty intense and interesting in parts but Ellie's character is still woefully missing despite using her name. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cortney Maasjo | 4/19/2012

    " I liked finding out more about Gavin but boy do they get themselves into trouble. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Haider | 1/11/2012

    " Definitely not the same league as tomorrow series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jojiwoji | 12/25/2011

    " Ellie is getting annoying. Oh well theres only one book left, may as well read it "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shane | 12/1/2011

    " A nice twist in this story which I didn't see coming. Has set up the last book quite well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nerida Hart | 11/16/2011

    " once again, tomorrow series was better, but still readable to find out what happens "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 10/15/2011

    " So, if I had not read the first 8 books it probably would have only gotten 3 stars. By now I am invested in the characters and still continue to like the story but not nearly as action packed as the others but still worth the read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Georgia | 7/31/2011

    " I loved Tomorrow When the War Began and I was so pleased when I saw this series! They were all great, I was upset that I couldn't read more of them "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 sarah | 6/14/2011

    " So pointless. Honestly, it feels like the book is just a series of events strung together with mindless stories leading to nowhere. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Taryn | 5/18/2011

    " Still plenty of nail-biting action, but we get a little more of Gavin's story in this one, and Ellie's tangled love life takes another turn. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Madi | 3/15/2011

    " As always john marsden writes a stunning story and we particularly get to see Ellie's feelings in this book, while lacking some of the action of the tomorrow series this book is a definite must read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Devereau | 1/10/2011

    " it had plenty of action! cant wait to find out the end! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Libby | 5/27/2009

    " Another blockbuster by Marsden. Gavin and Ellie hit more tight spots, survive, and grow closer, and we learn more about Gavin's past. Liberation is still catching the two of them up in its activities as well. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dorothy | 1/12/2009
