Praise
"Like its predecessor, this book features a breach of the town, an escape into the Forest, a love triangle, the ever-present and inexhaustible Mudo, and an extraordinarily bleak mood. But it also offers an expansion of postapocalyptic detail...and a few inspired surprises. Despite the books' similarities, readers are sure to be hooked, as this novel also retains Ryan's gripping storytelling style and engaging prose."
From the Publisher
Annotation A companion to the riveting young adult novel THE FOREST OF HANDS AND TEETH, this story focuses on Mary's daughter, Gabry. Set several years after Mary's story of escape, her daughter Gabry is more timid and afraid of what's on the side of the barrier in their seaside town of Vista. But when she ventures into an abandoned amusement park with her friends, Gabry discovers the horrors she's been kept from. Soon, she finds herself making rash choices about life, love, and the forest that threatens everyone.
Editors Note 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.From the Hardcover edition.
