Hare MoonPrequels are new trend nowadays, every series comes up with a prequel at the end. But I wasn’t impressed by Hare Moon. It was a very quick read, only 40 pages. But Carrie Ryan has written this story quite a few times already in her other books and reading it again doesn’t make any sense. Don’t get me wrong, I am a fan of ”Forest of Hands and Teeth” series, but prequel for this doesn’t feel complete somehow.

This book is about a young girl Tabitha and her struggle to get through the forest in search of other villages. As her village is surrounded by forest full of zombies, kept away by a fence she is not allowed to go anywhere out. When she sneaks out, past the gates and down the path into the Forest of Hands and Teeth she finds a village gate and a boy who taught her love. But love doesn’t exist in world like that where everything is surrounded by death. Tabitha as a sister of cathedral slowly realizes that what she has to sacrifice to live among the unconsecrated.

My rating: 2 out of 5. Everything is written in rushed manner and the feelings are incomplete. People who know Tabitha from the book ”Forest of Hands and Teeth” can try to know more about her by reading this book.
