Product Description

Gabry lives a quiet life. As safe a life as is possible in a town trapped between a forest and the ocean, in a world teeming with the dead, who constantly hunger for those still living. She’s content on her side of the Barrier, happy to let her friends dream of the Dark City up the coast while she watches from the top of her lighthouse. But there are threats the Barrier cannot hold back. Threats like the secrets Gabry’s mother thought she left behind when she escaped from the Sisterhood and the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Like the cult of religious zealots who worship the dead. Like the stranger from the forest who seems to know Gabry. And suddenly, everything is changing. One reckless moment, and half of Gabry’s generation is dead, the other half imprisoned. Now Gabry only knows one thing: she must face the forest of her mother’s past in order to save herself and the one she loves.

Last week, I recommended THE FOREST OF HANDS AND TEETH, so of course I've got to recommend it's equally awesome companion novel this week. I think I may have enjoyed this one even more than FOHT. Lots of unexpected twists, thrilling action, great imagery. It's a big more *gross* than FOREST, but if you're like me you kind of like gross. I highly recommend this book.

I just finished reading this AND will be profiling it as part of Elana's 10 Star Books of Awesomeness on May 3rd!

It's so awesome. I've never enjoyed zombies quite like Carrie Ryan's. Can't wait to meet YOUR zombies!

I'm half-way through this one and though I'm enjoying it, I liked FOREST better.

I'll be waiting to read this one. I'm not ready to read more gross yet. :(

Oh, why didn't I buy The Forest of Hands & Teeth? I totally should have bought it when I saw it. *sigh* hopefully I can still find it on my next trip to the bookstore. And I want to read The Dead Tossed Waves, too. I'm hearing such great things about these books!!!

I've read one negative review on this one and while I understand how the reviewer came to that conclusion, I had a totally different experience.

I love both of these books.
