    "A low in the series, but still well worth the time"

    I think the trouble with this book is the huge leap of faith we need to take in order to accept that any adult would ask children (or even untrained adult civilians) to go into such a heavily contested military zone. I had trouble swallowing this, and so the rest of the book also felt a little more "make believe" than the previous books had.

    Even with that aside, however, I didn't find this book as compelling as the first three. I have purchased the next in the series, but feel a bit wary. It is difficult to put my finger on the problem exactly (it is still a good listen), but this installment felt a little forced. I got the impression that there were meant to be only 3 in the series, but the publishers made such a great offer Marsden dusted the characters off for number 4.

    I have marked the narrator lower on this recording than the first 3 - this is simply because she has so much trouble with the New Zealand accents! She does a fabulous job otherwise and captures the personalities of the main characters well.

    "Another brilliant book"

    We have read all his other books and this was the next one. Its a truly gripping story that keeps you wanting more. Its hard to stop listening and both me and my husband finished this audiobook so quickly. The narrator is as good as always and reads the story perfectly, it adds to the enjoyment of the audiobook.



    This book is all about them first being taken from the war to New Zealand and then being taken back to war to help as Gorilla's. As you can imagine it was hard on the teenagers,leaving the war thinking they were safe and it was over for them to having to go back and continue fighting. It makes a very interesting story and one you'll enjoy to the very end....wanting to then start the next book ASAP.



    Highly Recommended and as said in all his books of this series this book isn't just for teenagers as adults will enjoy it too. We are both adults and we both loved this and all his other books in the series.
