Rating: Essential

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? - Goodreads

This. Was. Amazing! I was so shocked at how much I enjoyed this book, and I'm also shocked at how few people have read this.

The points of view in this novel switch between Peyton and Chase, and also from 'Then' and 'Now', so we get to see inside both of their heads at two completely different times. This was great because it showed the changes that the two characters had gone through since the Plague hit, and how they are now. It also shows how some things are still the same.

I really liked both Peyton and Chase (okay, I adored him, but whatever). I may have almost cried at one point towards the end because I just loved them both so much and their relationship had had so many bumps. I was just thinking "When is this going to end?!"

I also loved Tank (or Trey), Chase's older brother. He was the 'leader' of their little group of kids and he was so adorable. I also liked the other secondary characters such as Helga and David, although we didn't see too much of them. The only character that I despised was Peyton's father, and I felt so sorry for her and her mother at times because he was just such a prat.

There were lots of twists in this book, some that I was expected and some that I definitely wasn't! The ending completely shocked me.

I really wasn't expecting Tomorrow Land to be as amazing as it was. It was a thrilling novel that was brilliantly written. It's definitely the best zombie novel I have read!
