Sequel to The forest of hands and teeth
Read as part of the Once Upon a time IV challenge.
The story goes that even after the Return they tried to keep the roller coasters going.
All her life Gabrielle has grown up sheltered by the Barrier. It protects the town of Vista from the Mudo, the zombies, or the unconsecrated. But one night she allows herself to be persuaded that sneaking out, just once, couldn’t do any harm. That there are so few of the Mudo around that they’ll be fine. And Catcher is there, the boy she fancies. But that decision costs the teenagers dear. Some are killed, others turned or infected, and the rest face punishment for risking the whole town. Apart from Gabry, she wasn’t caught, at least not physically, but now she has to face up to the reality of her situation.
I think this is the last book in this series that I’ll read. The first one I found entertaining, if flawed, but this one feels like a rehash of it in so many ways. And while I think Ryan has a good style that keeps you reading once you’ve started, I finished this book with a meh feeling. Probably because the love-triangle did very little for me, I didn’t really get a sense of any of the characters as being developed. To be totally blunt I really didn’t care if they survived or not. Which is not what you want in this sort of a book. However I think I’m in the minority.

The Unconsecrated will never relent.” Continue reading
