The Dead Tossed Waves
By Carrie Ryan; Delacorte Books
Summary: Gabry lives a quiet life, secure in her town next to the sea and behind the Barrier. She's content to let her friends dream of the Dark City up the coast while she watches from the top of her lighthouse. Home is all she's ever known and, and all she needs for happiness. But life after the Return is never safe and there are threats even the Barrier can't hold back. Gabry's mother thought she left her secrets behind in the Forest of Hands and Teeth, but, like the dead in their world, secrets don't stay buried. And now, Gabry's world is crumbling.
One night beyond the Barrier . . .
One boy Gabry's known forever and one veiled in mystery . . .
One reckless moment, and half of Gabry's generation is dead, the other half imprisoned. Now Gabry knows only one thing: if she has any hope of a future, she must face the forest of her mother's past.
My Review: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Alright I'm glad I got that out of my system! So I've been waiting to read this book every since I picked up The Forest of Hands and Teeth which is a companion to this book. It is almost as amazing as The Forest of Hands and Teeth. The reason it isn't as good is because I like the character Mary better than Gabry in this book. Gabry at first comes across as a wimp and always trying to be apart of the crowd, but she eventually starts to grow on you when she starts risking her life and acting brave.
Carrie Ryan has officially made it to my list of favorite authors. Her writing never ceases to amaze me. She can really draw a person into her books. For instance I hate horror movies and books, but I decided to try out her books and fell in love with the whole zombie thing. I find it all so intriguing and addicting. I secretly want to go into one of her books and live in that kind of world and see how I would deal with living in a dystopia environment and have Mudo surround me. It so eerie but so cool at the same time. I seriously can't wait for the last companion book to come out. I recommend reading these books if you are into horror/romance/ survival/ ...but read at your own risk!
Things to Watch Out For: Violence, killings,a cult that preforms a sacrifice, graphic depictions of the Mudo (zombies), and some kissing,
