Tomorrow Land

Tomorrow Land - Mari Mancusi *Previously published by Shomi under the title Razor Girl -now self-pubbed with a ROCKING new cover*The Bookish Brunette thought:Tomorrow Land is told in alternating between past (before the apocalypse) and present (when Peyton leaves the fallout shelter) chapters... and in alternating POV's of Peyton and Chris.In the year 2030, Peyton Anderson lives in a world of simulated living. Kids and adults alike live through sim decks (a vitual reality video game system) and vicariously through avatars.Peyton wouldn't give Chris Parker the time of day. Dodging his advances since the first grade- nine years later, not much had changed... Until the Super Flu virus started killing or changing anyone who had received the AIDS vaccination into cannibalistic, mutant zombies.Peyton's "lunatic", scientist father outfits her with enhanced vision, RAZORS embedded in her fingers and wicked fighting skills. That's right guys... I READ a book about a cyborg!!!! Although I really didn't KNOW it when I started!Four years after the Super Flu began Peyton comes out of the fallout shelter with plans to head to Disneyworld, where her father instructed her that he would be waiting. Just as her journey begins, she has some zombie trouble and runs into CHASE. (who is really ... *gasp* CHRIS, but is called Chase now because no zombie can catch him)Tragedy strikes again and again, but Peyton and Chase  always manage to claw their way back to each other. I REALLY enjoyed most of Tomorrow Land, the jumping back and forth between past and present (EVERY other chapter) was a bit 'meh' for me... and Chris was addicted to pain pills (and everyone knows my PERSONAL feelings about substance reliant people.)Tomorrow Land takes sci-fi, post-apocalyptic, romance, adds one kick ass chick with razor-tipped fingers and gives us a quick and entertaining addition the the zombie genre!
