What was a series about teenagers surviving the invasion of their country on their own has turned into a story about farming and an insufferable child.

There is nothing to like here. If I had never read the Tomorrow series I would not have finished this book. I only kept reading because I hoped for #1 a plot (like the others had) and #2 the return of all the characters I knew and loved.

Do not buy this if you are new to the stories. Definitely do not buy it if you've read the Tomorrow books.

I am so disappointed.

Gavin has been unlikable and in the way since he showed up in The Night is for Hunting. Unfortunately, Incurable was all about this nasty little sociopath. I miss Ellie. I miss her friends. I wish she'd turn Gavin over to family services so he could get the intensive help he needs and quit being such a complete drain on Ellie.

The battle for Australia has ended but 17 year old Ellie Linton is still fighting. A peace treaty has been signed splitting the country between the Australians and the Invaders. It's an uneasy truce; along the border citizens on both sides, who may or may not be covertly supported by their respective governments, cross over with violent intent. And because of her actions during the war former guerrilla Ellie is a target.

In the previous book in John Marsden's long running teen angst/action/adventure series, While I Live, Ellie's parents were killed in a raid and a grieving Ellie struggled to keep the family farm running and look after her troubled adopted brother Gavin, all while doing battle with enemies from both sides of the border.

While I Live had the tough act of following an instalment that provided a perfect end point for the series and while WIL does undermine that ending and doesn't provide anywhere near as much closure I still thought it was a very engaging book. I liked how that the references to, and flashbacks dealing with farm life which were some of favourite bits of the war-set novels were carried over and expanded upon. The overarching narrative of Ellie coming terms with the murder of her parents was powerful stuff.

The overarching narrative in Incurable on the other hand, is... nothing. Ellie still hasn't quite recovered from her parents' deaths, which leads to a couple of affecting moments, but mostly she's functioning OK. There are some good episodes of farm life (a chapter where Ellie describes her morning routine is one of my favourite passages in the entire series). The action sequences are exiting, frequent and varied.

Format: Paperback
This book and the entire Ellie trilogy get bad reviews, but I think most people have missed the point of the trilogy.

The characters faced many adult problems while being guerrilla fighters during the war, but they never faced normal adult problems. Ellie and Lee don't know how to parent effectively. Most teenagers don't. Many reviewers complain about Gavin, that the books are all about Gavin. Of course they are; Ellie is the "author" and protagonist, and she's learning how to parent a little boy who's only known terror for many years and was a leader for children younger than he was for a long time.

The Ellie books aren't without their flaws, amongst which is some overdescription during action scenes. Ellie has always rambled in her descriptions, which is part of her charm, but I think this sequel trilogy overcompensates for the lack of action by making the action scenes far longer than they need be.

Incurable keeps the story going at a pretty fast pace. It touches on the good, the bad, and the all around ugly.

Once again, a good and quick read.

Chapter 6 comes before chapter 5 in the ebook, so make sure you go to the table of contents to get to chapter 5, then go back to 6. Hopefully, the powers that be will get it corrected soon, but it's not that big a deal.

The Tomorrow series should be read before this one. I wasn't crazy about the first book in this follow up series, but this one is right back on track. Love it! Marsden can't write a bad book!
