The Forest of Hands and Teeth, 18 Aug 2009
The Forest of Hands and Teeth follows the story of Mary, a girl living in a fenced off village surrounded by the Unconsecreated - basically, zombies whos only desire is infect more and more people.
Mary's village is run by the Sisters, a group of religious zealots dedicated to God and the continuation of the human race, who harbour some dark secrets which ultimately drive Mary from the village and into the unknown outside world.
Mary herself dreams of finding the ocean, a place of which she has only heard in stories. This, coupled with her complicated love life leads to a lot of difficult choices and plenty of action.
Although I found the characters a little 2D, The Forest of Hands and Teeth is certainly an exciting story and I look forward to the sequel!
