Tomorrow Land Review

Can true love survive the end of the world? Imagine finding your first love, only to be ripped apart by the apocalypse. Peyton Anderson will never forget the day she was forced to make a choice--between her family--and Chris Parker, the boy she'd given her heart. Now, four years later, as she steps from the fallout shelter and into a dead and broken world, he's the only thing on her mind. All Chris "Chase" Parker wanted was to take Peyton away and keep her safe from harm. But he waited for hours in the rain on judgment day and she never showed--breaking his heart without ever telling him why. Now the two of them have been thrown together once again, reluctant chaperones to a group of orphan children in a post-apocalyptic world where the dead still walk...and feed. As they begin their pilgramage to the last human outpost on Earth, can they find a way to let go of old hurts and find the love they lost--all while attempting to save what's left of the human race?

Review (ARC):
I never get tired of the zombie apocalypse novels. Something about the danger adds some adventure to the novel. In this novel the view points alternate between Peyton and Chris in the past and present. Peyton is a strong female heroine who's father has been training her for the apocalypse he believes to be coming. Peyton also gets some added enhancements that make her tougher than normal people. I didn't like the fact that Peyton didn't do much with the enhancements and definitely didn't appreciate them by the end of the novel. Chris has been in love with Peyton forever but he goes through a lot of changes when Peyton leaves him. When Peyton and Chris finally meet up again its interesting to see the way their emotions and changes affect their relationship. I think there should have been a lot more awesome fight scenes in this book to make it even more exciting. Don't get me wrong, it was a pretty good book as dystopian novels go but it didn't really pull me in. I liked the fact that this book actually had an ending and not a sequel because its nice to see a conclusion to a story in one reading. I would recommend this novel to anyone who likes dystopian, zombie novels.
