Darkness, Be My Friend is the continuation of the story of a group of teenagers inadvertently caught up in a war zone, but luckily not caught by the enemy like the rest of their community. In this story, the teenagers are happily being teenagers in New Zealand, until the NZ defence forces decide to try hijacking the foreigners and use our heroes as their guides. Sadly, things don't go as planned and this group of friends are once more stranded and left to their own devices in their native countryside.

This book was more about failure than success, and I found it harder to accept than the happy success stories of the past books. However, as usual, this book has been written by an author with an active imagination, and the details of his plot are extremely enjoyable, and have left me wondering what they will do next!
