Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Carrie RyanWhen I began writing The Forest of Hands and Teeth, I was pretty sure it wasn’t going to sell. Not only were there not a lot of zombie books being published, there certainly weren’t any set decades after the zombie apocalypse (that I knew of). But I kept writing anyway because my husband had suggested “Write what you love,” and what I loved was the idea of surviving in a world that’s so irrevocably different from the one we live in now where the existence of the walking dead isn’t an accepted reality.

Because really, aren’t we all--teens and adults--still trying to figure out how to bring meaning to our lives amidst the chaos of the world around us? I just added zombies to that chaos to heighten the stakes and pinpoint that part of ourselves that yearns to do more than merely exist.

They say that the increase in popularity of zombies can be tracked against worsening economic circumstances; the stock market takes a dive, zombies start to rise. For me, as a zombie fan and an author of zombie books and stories, that’s at least one positive aspect of the past several years. I feel lucky that my debut novel was able to ride the swell of zombie popularity--it allowed me to quit my job as a lawyer and write more stories set in the world I’d created including The Dead-Tossed Waves and The Dark and Hollow Places which released this month.

But more than that, as someone who definitely did not grow up a fan of monsters and scary movies, I get a thrill every time someone says, “I never thought I’d read a zombie story, much less like it, but I loved yours.” My husband expanded my horizons when he convinced me to go see that first zombie movie on one of our earliest dates. I’m glad that, because of my books, someone else out there may become as voracious a fan as I am.

The book begins with an emotional, not action-oriented, bang. Right from the start we see exactly what is at Annah's core and the rest of the story deconstructs what we see in the first chapter, removing layer by layer the hard outer shell she has constructed around her heart. Annah is, by far, Ms. Ryan's most mature and well-developed protagonist to date. She is intelligent, sometimes (appropriately) naive, vulnerable, and street savvy. We are given so many reason to care about her and her survival even when she's being a bit dramatic (what teen isn't?) or indecisive (what human isn't?). What I found I liked best about Annah is that she is very real. She is a girl who could be set into any time or place and resonate perfectly.

I was pleased with how Ms. Ryan has grown up her other characters, especially Gabry who seems to have finally made a choice she is willing to live with for a good long time. One of my frustrations with being in her head (for Dead Tossed Waves) was that she flip-flopped so much between the two guys that I finally didn't care who she picked as long as she did it and stopped thinking about it in the middle of a zombie infested present. This time around, Gabry has matured and is even able to express more of her innate sweet nature and true romantic sensibilities.

I was pleasantly surprised with how the Ms. Ryan progressed the relationship between Annah and everyone she comes in contact with, especially Catcher who has his own wounded character to overcome. Catcher is now my absolute favorite of Ms. Ryan's male characters. He's got the whole dark and brooding with a hidden soft spot down pat and he's been written so well that it doesn't ring false in any way.

In The Forest of Hands and Teeth and even Dead Tossed Waves our view of the world is very limited. The characters are all hemmed in by the fences. Their whole worlds are their villages then what's inside of the gates. We don't really get to see how the rest of the world survives and is dealing. It's in human nature to be greedy and selfish, so I was fascinated in Dead Tossed Waves at the mention of the Dark City. Certainly we would be able to see how humanity (those not `protected' by the gates and fences) survived. We definitely get a look at that in this book.

Annah (Gabry's twin) lives in the Dark City. Her view is vastly different than Mary's longing for more and Gabry's need for safety. No Annah lives in a scary world where the unconsecrated aren't the worst threats out there. Annah also is angry and hurt that Elias left, but is constantly waiting for him to return to her. She misses her twin, she misses Elias... but she is so brave and instinctual when it comes to her decisions. Elias isn't so pretty from Annah's perspective, but we see Catcher all over again through her eyes. The zombies in this book are a little more `real' then before, we see more of them, and many encounters remind me of Mary's with the girl in the red vest/jacket. Very eerie, and very sad.

At the end of the Forest of Hands and Teeth I cried (something I rarely do with books) because it was like... is this it? Mary lost so much, gave up so much and this is it? A beach covered with bodies and no end in sight? At the end of Dead Tossed Waves I found myself worried for Annah and especially Catcher as he represents a new aspect and twist of the infection. At the end of The Dark and Hollow Places I was again filled with this horrible empty feeling... is this it?

Every now and then you might get a bit sad when you come to the end of a series that you loved so much, this is how I felt after reading The Dark and Hollow Places. I fell in love with this series unintentionally, I started reading The Forest of Hands and Teeth thanks to the high recommendations from book friends. Of course at the time they didn't know that I had a huge phobia about anything zombie related and well by reading the synopsis I wasn't aware that it would be about zombies because they are called the Unconsecrated. After reading a few chapters and even after figuring out that there were zombies in the book I couldn't force myself to give it up, it was too late for me, I was invested in these characters because this series was about so much more than just the creepy flesh eating undead, it was about survival, hope and love and I was in it for good.

In the Dark and Hollow Places we get taken to the Dark City, and see the story unfold through the eyes of Annah, the other twin. At first I was a bit sad that we wouldn't get to see it from Gabry's point of view, I wanted to know more about her and what happened after the end of The Dead Tossed Waves but I quickly got over that once I got to know Annah and her story. I really admired Annah for her courage and will to live, I mean this girl spends most of her time and spent pretty much years on her own waiting for Elias and she's still not willing to give up. I would've been freaking out in some of these scenes in the book and locked myself in a closet shaking with fear waiting for death, yeah, I'm a wuss. Not Annah, she was willing to fight her way to survive and sacrifice herself for her loved ones if she had to, the fact that she never gives up throughout the whole book is why I admire her so much.
