Special Sub-Topic: "The Dead Of The Night"
|Who finally got the group into action at the start of the book?|
Homer. He spoke to them about doing something before something happened to them.
|How did they manage to sneak into the hospital?|
Homer caused the fire alarm to go off with a smoke bomb. The fire alarm caused the guards to come out, allowing our heroic group to sneak in.
|What state was Corrie in when Ellie saw her?|
Coma. They took a while to work on her once they realised it was a bullet wound.
|What happened to Kevin?|
Beaten, questioned and released into the showgrounds. He was in pretty bad shape but okay.
|Who does Ellie believe has a drinking problem?|
Chris. He has been drinking on the sly and risking the whole group.
|What did they do as their first planned attack?|
Attacked a convey with flaming torches and nails on the road. They killed the foot patrol in self defense. The flaming torches were alcohol bottles with burning rags inside of them.
|What animal did Ellie slaughter so that they could have a roast?|
Lamb. Who doesn't love lamb roast? Very Australian, I must admit.
|Who stayed back while the others went off towards Holloway River?|
Chris. Chris was never really part of the group, as his parents were safe and sound overseas.
|What were the band of people that the group came across?|
Harvey's Heroes. Biggest bunch of hypocrites ever. I literally speed-read this section; I couldn't stand the people at all.
|Who was the man in charge of this group?|
Major Harvey. Very important to this story, no matter how much he is detested.
|What happened to the band of people that they came across, led by a military man?|
They were ambushed by the enemy. The books suggests that most were killed but a few captured; no one but Ellie and her friends escaped.
|How did the solider die at the meeting point of Ellie and her friends?|
Lee plunged a knife into his chest. Ellie hit him, but he was still alive, although he would have died eventually. Lee killed him with the knife after seeing what the soliders were doing to Harvey's heroes.
|Who did Ellie meet when they made contact with people tidying Kevin's farm?|
Corrie's Mum. Corrie's mum let her know that Corrie was still in a coma and that some 'chalkie' was turning people in that were related to the army and other such organisations.
|Where did they stay while staking out Turner Street?|
Church. They took shifts to go into the tower, which provided the best view of the goings-on.
|Who did Ellie and Fi see with the soliders?|
Major Harvey. He was on their side and was the new 'chalkie'.
|What is a chalkie?|
Teacher. I guess it comes from teachers using chalk.
|How did they attack the occupied houses on Turner Street?|
Switching on gas and setting timers, causing an explosion. All five chose a house to break into, and with Fi's knowledge knew where to look for the gas outlets.
|Did they succeed in killing the traitorous chalkie?|
n. He obviously had left earlier, and will pop up later in the series.
|Who does Robyn discover dead?|
Chris. He had been drinking and driving, and crashed the ute. A tragic waste of a life.
|What happened to the person that Robyn discovered dead?|
They were buried in Hell. Chris was buried in Hell and had a marker.
