Publisher Comments:

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 mothers past in order to save herself and the one she loves.

Review:

"Ryan returns with a companion to her critically acclaimed debut, The Forest of Hands and Teeth, which functions as something of a retelling of that story, albeit with a different protagonist. Gabry lives in the seaside town of Vista, the same place that Mary landed at the end of the previous book. Like Mary's former village, Vista is carefully protected from the Mudo (the Unconsecrated), zombielike humans constantly seeking people to infect. After a reckless nighttime adventure with her friends turns tragic, Gabry avoids punishment, but can't escape the changes to and revelations about her life that quickly mount. Like its predecessor, this book features a breach of the town, an escape into the Forest, a love triangle, the ever-present and inexhaustible Mudo, and an extraordinarily bleak mood. But it also offers an expansion of postapocalyptic detail (including the Recruiters, a militant, policelike organization that hunts and brutalizes as much as it tries to protect) and a few inspired surprises. Despite the books' similarities, readers are sure to be hooked, as this novel also retains Ryan's gripping storytelling style and engaging prose. Ages 14 — up."

     In this sequel to The Hallowed Ones, it's up to one Amish girl to save her family, her community, and the boy she loves . . . but what will she be asked to sacrifice in return?

This is basically just as gripping as The Forest of Hands and Teeth, but overall I didn't enjoy it quite as much (even if I read it wicked fast). I missed the atmosphere of the first book; while the Recruiters are fine villains here, they're not nearly as complex or creepy as the Sisters in The Forest of Hands and Teeth -- I guess I don't find corrupt military villains as interesting as a religious order keeping everyone in the dark for their own good. I did really like Gabry as a main character; even if I wanted to shake her sometimes, her confusion and fears seemed realistic and I could relate to her. The "love triangle" in this one annoyed me a lot less, probably because it felt less like a contrived romance novel trope.

I think the main thing that frustrates me about these books is that there is often really interesting stuff that's hinted at or partially described, but then left by the wayside. In this case, I really wanted to know more about the Soulers, which are a fascinating group (they worship zombies), and especially about Elias's connection to them.
