Book Review #81 - The Dead Tossed Waves (Forest of Hands and Teeth #2)

One night beyond the barrier. One boy she's known forever. One veiled mystery. One reckless moment.....and half of her generation is dead.

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 the lighthouse. 

Home is all she's ever known 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'd left her secrets behind in the Forest of Hands and Teeth but now, to save the one she loves, Gabry must face the Forest of her mother's past. 

My Rating: 5/5

I found this book to be incredibly slow-paced, yet very exciting at the same time. 

The writing style the author uses is unique and it builds the world and the characters in such a way that they seem very real. 

When I first found out that the protagonist was not the same as in The Forest of Hands and Teeth I was a little hesitant that I would like that aspect, but Gabry is introduced in such a way that you forget that she is even a new character.
