Publisher Comments:

There are many things that Annah would like to forget: the look on her sister's face before Annah left her behind in the Forest of Hands and Teeth, her first glimpse of the Horde as they swarmed the Dark City, the sear of the barbed wire that would scar her for life. But most of all, Annah would like to forget the morning Elias left her for the Recruiters.  

Annah's world stopped that day, and she's been waiting for Elias to come home ever since. Somehow, without him, her life doesn't feel much different than the dead that roam the wasted city around her. Until she meets Catcher, and everything feels alive again.

But Catcher has his own secrets. Dark, terrifying truths that link him to a past Annah has longed to forget, and to a future too deadly to consider. And now it's up to Annah: can she continue to live in a world covered in the blood of the living? Or is death the only escape from the Return's destruction?

From the Hardcover edition.

Reader Eternal, February 28, 2014 (view all comments by Reader Eternal)
This is a book about zombies---but it's not really about zombies at all. It's about what happens when the world as we know it ends. Absent are the gore and kitsch that I---a longtime zombie skeptic---was expecting. There's plenty of horror, but it's the kind that comes from an unflinching look at the best and worst of human nature in impossible circumstances. And if there's horror there, there's plenty of wonder to be found too. If, like me, you have shied away from the zombie genre, I can't recommend this book to you highly enough. It's a perfect conclusion to The Forest of Hands and Teeth trilogy (books one and two are equally excellent). It's a story that will stay with you long after the final page.
