Book Description

"A high-stakes, high-octane tour through a devastating and deftly imagined future. This is Mancusi at the top of her game."
--Diana Peterfreund, author of For Darkness Shows the Stars

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. And 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 of a group of orphan children in a post-apocalyptic world where the dead still walk...and feed. As they begin their pilgrimage 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 the while attempting to save what's left of the human race?

Previously published in paperback as RAZOR GIRL.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read! April 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I was blown away by this novel. While initially confused by the back and forth nature of the story, each chapter alternating between the past and present, by chapter four I had figured out this writing technique and found myself quickly falling in love with it. Instead of giving the reader all the information up front, or glossing over the past in order to write the present, Marcusi alternates between the past and present to divulge this beautiful story of the zombie apocalypse. This technique also helped build suspense as Peyton and Chase touched upon certain elements in the present that weren't yet fully explained in the past, allowing the reader to begin piecing facts together and come to his/her own conclusions before Marcusi hands them the truth. I really enjoyed this, and found that Marcusi did a phenomenal job stringing the reader along, giving him/her just enough information to fit the puzzle pieces together correctly, while also keeping the reader's interest as this tale of love and survival unfolds. And I loved every minute of it.

What I really liked about this novel, more than anything else, was being able to watch Peyton and Chase fall in love twice, four years apart. Through our glimpses into the past, and our knowledge of the present, Marcusi gives the reader a true love story chalked full of mystery, suspense, and intrigue as the characters strive to make it to the rendezvous point and, ultimately, save mankind.

Peyton's ex-scientist father is "crazy," and his non-stop talk of the end of the world, along with his strict training of Peyton set the tone for this amazing novel.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good idea with some problems in the execution May 2, 2012
By Rea
Format:Kindle Edition
This book uses a sort of duel narration. There are two storylines that follow the characters: one as their society starts to break apart due to a plague that transforms some of the sufferers into zombies; and the other is four years later after society has completely broken down with only a handful of survivors left... and the zombies, of course. Though it was certainly interesting to observe the factors that led to the downfall of the current society (the book is set about 25 years from now) - something that I often bemoan in other books because I find myself wanting to know why and how things changed to become what they are - in this particular set up I was always far more interested in the storyline set in the `now'. Sometimes I toyed with the idea of skipping chapters set in the `then' but in the end I didn't give in to temptation.

At the start of novel, especially in the first chapter as the scene was originally being set, there were a few things that didn't strike me as being in the story's best interests:
- First off, there was a fairly heavy reliance on pop culture from our time, such as references to Twilight (which I consider especially dangerous to use in a story as you audience will either lap up your reference, or be annoyed by it. I'm in the latter group. Plus, Edward's described as a brooding hero... he gave me the creeps!), Ghostbusters, etc.
- Secondly, the teen culture there is based on the government having made sex illegal to any who haven't received an injection making them immune to AIDS. I don't believe for a moment that this is even remotely possible. Sex is an innate drive within almost all humans. Over the centuries there have been many attempts to control sexual encounters between humans and they have all failed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tomorrow Land Review - RIA April 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a very interesting dystopian novel. Throw in some zombies, a mad scientist, and two kids in love and you have an amazing book called Tomorrow Land. I was pulled right into this book from the very beginning. I loved how the book jumped between the past and the present. I really enjoyed all the glimpses of what had happened before. I also love that we got to read what was going on with Peyton and Chris. This book didn't just stay with one main character.

Peyton was so well written. She was so strong. She was a real fighter. I loved reading about her enhancements and her struggle with dealing with who they made her. If it was the end of everything she would definitely be someone to have around. At times she seemed just a little heartless in her constant need to get to her father. Really though, she is just trying to be tough.

Chris was a big mess. I still loved him but he was really struggling through this book. The poor guy was always blaming himself and he did some unsavory things. Like I said, I still loved his character. I think that Mancusi did a really good job of addressing his issues and still making him a lovable character.

The children that Chris and Peyton are caring for are fun to read about. All these poor children left in a world full of zombies. They were so brave. The other people that popped up along the way were so well written. I loved Helga's character. She was one smart girl. The zombies, or The Others, were amazing. Mancusi did such a great job of painting this picture of what happened to the people with the Super Flu.

This book was a really great read. I would definitely suggest it if you enjoy dystopians and zombies. The adventures in this book were amazing. There were rescues, a race against the clock, and romance. It is a great YA book that I think many people will enjoy.

Today she works as an award-winning young adult author and freelance television producer, for which she has won two Emmys. When not writing about fanciful creatures of myth and legend, Mari enjoys goth clubbing, cosplay, watching cheesy (and scary) horror movies, and her favorite guilty pleasure--playing videogames. A graduate of Boston University, she lives in Austin, Texas with her husband Jacob, daughter Avalon, and their dog Mesquite.
