Rachel Churcheris on my auto-buy list. I absolutely love her writing and the Battle Ground series has been absolutely incredible. What I love is that consistently, the books have just gotten better every time.Victory Dayis no exception. What is so compelling is just how realistic this story has been from the beginning.

The characters are wonderful. The representation of PTSD is clearly portrayed in a very real light.Victory Dayis about how people’s lives change after the end of a conflict. Not

It’s always going to be hard ending a series and especially one that has been as emotive and compelling as Battle Ground. Living up to reader expectation about a finale that has been building over four previous books may not always hit the mark, but interestingly, what Rachel Churcher does, is to take you in a completely unexpected direction entirely!

Rather than slowly building tension up to a final climactic showdown and rescue, that is only part of the story and one that is over surprisingly

This is the latest in the Battleground series, a YA dystopian set in th near future. Bex and her group are in hiding in Scotland while family and friends are awaiting a trial. Ketty is feeling the pressure in London as the tension increases and her position is reliant on her boss.

Up to this latest instalment in the series, the focus has been on Bex and the resistance trying to evade capture, getting embroiled in skirmishes and trying to survive. The government is using Bex and the resistance in

You’ve probably all realised by now that I have loved every second of this series so far, and Victory Day really was no exception. Although reading it was a bitter sweet experience, as it always is when you reach the end of a favourite series, this book really is a fitting ending and provides an extremely satisfying conclusion.

As the conflict between the resistance and the Home Forces reaches fever pitch, emotions are running high on both sides of the battle lines. The short chapters in this

A great end to one of the most relevant series of books I've read in years! Set in a near future UK after Brexit and Scottish Independence, the parallels to the current political and social situation in the UK are truly scary.

Many series end with an explosive finale where the good guys win and the bad guys get their just deserts. I was expecting the same when I read this, the final book in the Battle Ground Series, and it delivers. The explosive finale packs in a huge amount of action and

Victory Day is an elegant and worthy conclusion to a fascinating series. Churcher ratchets up the tension between antagonists Bex (The Face of the Resistance) and her former trainer Ketty with short alternating chapters until they meet face to face for the first time since book two, False Flag.

I especially liked how the book succeeds in making both Bex and Ketty more sympathetic characters than they had been in the earlier books. Bex had become less likable the more she resisted her role in the

The Battle Ground series followed me through most of 2019 & finishing it at the start of 2020 was very satisfying. This series was so engaging, but also terrifying because of how true it could turn out to be. Victory Day turned out to be a surprising end to the series, throwing plenty of surprises my way, & I love that the book included the aftermath of the final battle, rather than just giving us a short epilogue. I will miss Bex & her friends as the characters have been in my life ...more

Victory Day is the final book of the five-book Battle Ground Series, and what a great way to finish.

The final battle is coming, but not quick enough for Bex and her friends. They need to fight now, to save the government prisoners from execution.

Ketty and Bex meet face to face during the final battle, and while Ketty prevents Bex from being killed, she still has an agenda. She needs to survive the outcome, no matter who wins.

Victory Day is action-packed and thrilling, keeping me in suspense from

This is a fitting conclusion to the whole gripping series of the Battle Ground series. We have been taken on parallel journeys with Bex and Ketty with whom we have felt frustration, empathy, understanding and even admiration at different times. It has many twists and turns, keeping us guessing all the way to the end. Definitely a five srar series.
