Author Information

John Marsden is Australia's bestselling author for teenagers and a highly acclaimed picture book writer. His previous titles include Winter, The Head Book, The Boy You Brought Home and Millie.

John Marsden lives at the Tye Estate, just outside of Melbourne, where he opened a school called Candlebark in January 2006. The school currently has 52 students, ranging from Prep to Year 7.


Book six in the Tomorrow When The War Began series sees the group grow with the five new children rescued from the encounter at the end of the previous book. This union is short lived before the new group of kids runs off, only to be tracked down by Ellie and her group and brought back to the safety of Hell.

Having the younger members of the group proves to be a blessing and a curse, with the group enjoying the innocence of the children and their actions, but also leads to another unnecessary encounter and capture by the invaders.

After six books in the safe haven of Hell, the invaders finally locate them and now the group have to find a new sanctuary.

Another well written and fast paced book by Marsden.
