  • The Other Side of Dawn: Tomorrow Series #7

    After six incredible books, John Marsden has written the final volume and a last adventure for Ellie, Lee, Homer, Fi, and Kevin. It may be the end of the series, but does it mean the end to Australia as we know it or the end of the war? Or both?

    Overall

    The final novel of the Tomorrow series, John Marsden continued to entertain us with the action-packed storyline and deep, suble exploration of the inner world of each character. Exciting and full of twist, emotional yet undoubtly beautiful.

    Though personally I find the part with Camp 23 a little disturbing, but it does however enables the novel to further mirror the reality. It's the closest account to a real war possible.

    Suzi Dougherty's continues to use her excellent narrating skills to further puntuate the storyline. Well done, a great novel

    Overall

    I expected the book to be better than this, however I found the book to be a disappointment to my expectations.

    This is a cliche of a weak, disadvantaged hero along with his companions fighting against a overwhelming evil lord of some kind. A trend which tends to happen in fantasy novels.

    I do find the language at times to be too simple, as if prepared for the view of 14 year olds. Yet some of the plot is quite ingenious. The setting and bestiary is fascinating but expected.

    What REALLY put me off is near the end of the book involves almost 3 chapters about how the main character Richard Cypher is tortured, and in detail too. It almost seem as if Terry Goodkind was writing a Torture horror book in fantasy. I was truly revolting.

    I do warn that the book is not one where everything goes in the main character's way. But there's a LOT of sadism towards the characters.

    Some people may like it, but I probably won't be buying the sequels.
