The Forest of Hands and Teeth

In Mary's world, there are simple truths.
  • The Sisterhood always knows best.
  • The Guardians will protect and serve.
  • The Unconsecrated will never relent And you must always mind the fence that surrounds the village. The fence that protects the village from the Forest of Hands and Teeth.
But slowly, Mary's truths are failing her. She's learning things she never wanted to know about the Sisterhood and its secrets, and the Guardians and their power. And, when the fence is breached and her world is thrown into chaos, about the Unconsecrated and their relentlessness.
Now she must choose between her village and her future, between the one she loves and the one who loves her. And she must face the truth about the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Could there be life outside a world surrounded by so much death?

This book was breathtaking, literally! From the moment it began I was drawn inot the story and was constantly wondering what would happen to the characters.

One of the things about paranormal books it that every author has their own version of what a zombie is in this case or what a vampire is. Some think of them as just misunderstood broken people while other imagine them as they have always been. Monsters that are to be feared! Carrie Ryan's zombies are the terrifying kind, the kind that you hope don't exist and that you hope will never find you.

One of the things about zombies at least in this book is that you in a small way feel bad for them because they were changed and they really did not have a choice as is reiterated throughout the novel. So you kind of feel bad until they start chasing you and trying to change you then you are just disgusted.

Carrie Ryan does and exquisite job in her descriptions they are not to much but you feel as if you are there. Also the characters are somewhat relate able!

Great Book and have a great September Zombies Week!
