Ever since the Return, the dead have hunted the living, swelling their ranks with their victims. When Gabry and her friends break the rules and leave the safety of their home, tragedy strikes, and Gabry’s life is torn apart. Now, to atone for her mistakes and save her friends, Gabry must defy the authorities and journey into a forest where she’ll either find death, or the long-hidden truth about her family and her own origins. Either way, there’s no turning back. This dark fantasy, set in a zombie-infested future, is atmospheric, compelling, and unforgettable. While acting as a sequel to The Forest of Hands and Teeth, it stands alone without a problem.
