The Forest of Hands and Teeth
In Mary’s world, there are simple truths.
The Sisterhood always knows best.
The Guardians will protect and serve.
The Unconsecrated will never relent.
And you must always mind the fence that surrounds the village. The fence that protects the village from the Forest of Hands and Teeth.
But slowly, Mary’s truths are failing her. She’s learning things she never wanted to know about the Sisterhood and its secrets, and the Guardians and their power. And, when the fence is breached and her world is thrown into chaos, about the Unconsecrated and their relentlessness.
Now she must choose between her village and her future, between the one she loves and the one who loves her. And she must face the truth about the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Could there be life outside a world surrounded by so much death?
I loved this book so much. I read it in a couple hours overnight, and I seriously couldn’t put it down. Even when it was three in the morning, and I was convinced there were zombies waiting outside of my room.
It’s excellently written, and I always love an author who isn’t afraid to kill people. Lots of times it did get kind of confusing (maybe because it was three in the morning), but that didn’t really hurt the story. Then there were a lot of loose ends which I usually hate, but it worked here.
The characters were wonderful, the story was wonderful, it was all just perfect.
I’ll give it a 5/5
