Mudo, Soulers and Love Triangles.....Oh My!!!!


THE DEAD-TOSSED WAVES
By Carrie Ryan
404 Pages
2010
From Inside Cover:
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.
My Thoughts:
Dark and terrifying-the perfect read for the month of October!
The Dead-Tossed Waves is the much anticipated sequel to The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan. The story picks up with Gabrielle the daughter of Mary from the first book. They live in a seaside village of Vista and the unconsecrated-now called Mudo are still a very real threat. Gabry is content with her life inside the protected walls of her village. Her mother is keeper of the lighthouse and deals with any Mudo that happen to wash up on the beach.
One night Gabry's boyfriend Catcher and best friend, Cira talk her into exploring an area outside the fence. In one reckless moment Gabry's life changes forever. Everything she has ever known is gone-her mother, the boy she loves and her best friend. She isn't sure who she can trust or where she can go.
The Dead-Tossed Waves is a fast paced, action packed thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat. I anxiously await the next installment- The Dark and Hollow Places available March 2011. If you are looking for a scary read for this month, check this one out. You won't be disappointed.

AM I THE ONLY ONE?

AM I THE ONLY ONE? So, last week I was so excited to start The City of Mirrors by Justin Cronin. I was a big fan of his first two books...
