Product Description


'I really love this series, there's something about it that feels so raw and real' Bloggers Heart Books.

'I can't recommend this series highly enough' Feeling Fictional.

'The third in this series has Marsden's usual well-described scenes, clever plotting, and great dialogue ... a stunning, absolutely breathtaking ending' Bookbag.

Product Description

Ellie and her friends, an unarmed bunch of amateur teen fighters, have achieved more than they ever thought possible. 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.

Can Ellie, Homer, Fi, Robin, Lee and Kevin really stage a major military attack on the enemy? And in their attempt to pull it off, what will they have to sacrifice? They have already lost Corrie and Chris; who else will the group have to lose in their desperation to defend their country?

The Third Day, The Frost, draws the reader deeper into the struggle of these ordinary teens attempting to survive in extraordinary times. It is a tense and moving read that will stay with you forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Non-Stop Action 20 July 2014
By Kat
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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 s*** 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 two in the series, although none of them are a real picnic, this is the one where everything that has happened since the invasion really hits home - they all struggle with different psychological issues, and all their problems feel very realistic.

The characters also continue to examine their personal relationships, and especially Ellie is very honest about how she actually feels about being in a relationship formed during wartime. This honesty is one of my favourite things about Ellie, and all of the characters in the book - even though these books were written in the 1990s, they are still relevant today because they feel so realistic.

Once again, the Australianisms and slang words came flooding back to me, and although they could potentially be confusing for non-Australian readers, Marden's use of this terminology makes it easy to work out what is actually meant - or at very least would make me curious to look them up and see what they actually mean.

This series is so intensly readable - the plot lines move at a fast pace, the characters are so realistic and it always makes me just a little homesick.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another addictive entry. 12 Dec. 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you choose to begin reading this series, I suggest you do it over a weekend, as boy is this series addictive. So far I have read a book a day for the last three days, with my aim to read the fourth one tomorrow. Unluckily for me, I have yet to purchase the final three entries and will probably have to wait until they're delivered before I can finish the series conclusively.

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 outlandish moments, like getting caught up in a tidal wave created by an explosion, seeming realistic and believable. It continues to surprise me how detailed and exciting the author manages to make the `tactics' of the novel, especially with things like sentry duty, which helps the suspense of believing the kids could get caught at any moment. I'm also shocked by how much the violence is escalating with every instalment, with this entry having the main character `toughen up' and realise that she can deal with killing in cold blood and realising as `the leader' of the group that the responsibility to protect them falls on her shoulders. This is also the first time where the main character seems to have a real crisis of faith, and even though we know that she will inevitably be okay, the parts where Ellie simply chooses to accept that death is coming, are a lot darker than I imagined the novels to become.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tomorrow book 3 31 May 2012
By Sarah (Feeling Fictional) TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
The Third Day, the Frost is the third book in the Tomorrow series by John Marsden and therefore this review may contain spoilers for previous books. This is a series I would highly recommend but I think you really need to read the books in order so if you're not up to date with the series then look away now.

The story picks up a couple of weeks after the ending of The Dead of the Night and we see our teenage heroes hiding out in Hell after their latest attack on the enemy. The boredom of remaining hidden is starting to wear on them all and the loss of yet another member of the group has left them all feeling depressed and out of sorts. In the end they decide that they need something to occupy them and start to plan another attack in Cobbler's Bay. When they manage to break Kevin out of a work camp so he can rejoin them things start to look up. Kevin has a new knowledge of explosives and that gives them all the incentive they need to launch their biggest attack yet. But their biggest attack is going to have the worst consequences and they may not all survive the backlash from the enemy.

I have been thoroughly enjoying this series and am very pleased that I still have another 4 books to read. I have absolutely no idea where the story will go next though, I just can't quite see how it will have a happy ending after the events we've already witnessed! Ellie, Homer, Lee, Robyn, Fi and Kevin are all such brave characters - they have all had to make difficult decisions and I'm pleased that the author doesn't hold back on showing how they have been effected emotionally by the things they have been through. They may be proud of their efforts to disrupt their enemy but they are also horrified by some of the things they have done.
