Waiting on Wednesday: The Dead-Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan

The Dead-Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan (published by Delacorte, March 9, 2010)

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.


I really liked the first book, The Forest of Hands and Teeth, so I am looking forward to reading this one. It sounds like the main characters are new, but I hope the characters from book one make an appearance as well.

while i liked the first one, i'm looking forward to reading about a new crew who have to deal with the future world.

The Forest of Hands and Teeth is one of my favourite books ever, so I'm really excited about this one.

I hadn't seen a summary yet either, so thanks for that! Is Gabry perhaps Mary's daughter? I'm intrigued by this.

I really love that cover too. (Fangirl? Me?!)

Those look like great books. Happy reading. :)

Lauren, I also think Gabry could be Mary's daughter. Which would make it interesting I think!
