Tomorrow War is another short book from 22 year military veteran J. L. Bourne, but unlike Day by Day Armageddon there are no zombies this time around. In this story the zombies are replaced something far scarier - other humans and a dysfunctional government. Keeping a similar journal format to the Day by Day series, the main character, Max [Redacted], writes down his experiences as a form of self therapy to help him cope with the things he decides that he must do to survive. Max is a trained killer working for the US government when it all goes to hell and he must live with the fact that his last covert mission is the root cause of the financial collapse that ruins society as we know it.
