Dark hollow places ”Dark and Hollow Places” is the 3rd installment in Forest f Hands and Teeth series. The first book in the series was such a great story, then came the second book ”The Dead Tossed Waves” with completely different set of characters which failed to answer the questions from the first book. And then came this 3rd book, even though most of the characters are familiar, the story looses the track. I started skimming through the mid book because things were repeated over and over.  What a lousy sequel for a great story.

This story is about Annah, sister of Gabry from the second book. Elias went in search of Gabry leaving Annah behind, where she faces the loneliness and learns to live with it in the memory of her lover and long lost sister. But one day she meets her sister and come to know that her lover is no longer hers, now he is her sisters love,her own twin sister who just looks like her but more beautiful and scare less. She learns to live with it and she finds her love in Catcher who was heartbroken by her sister and who is immune to this walking dead infection. There are some people who wants to use his immunity to survive the horror.

My rating: 2 out of 5. It was very slow and repetitive. I had high hopes for this series but only first book in the series was good.

the forest of hands and teethVery dark, chilling tale of those who can walk even after death, Zombies- who never stops. I really like reading about zombies after reading Walking Dead Comics and watching the series on TV. ”The Forest of Hands and Teeth” is a heart breaking and horrifying tale.

Mary, the main character, lives in a village there civilization has been set back by hundreds of years, because of   “The Return.” The village is surrounded by a fence which holds back the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Within the forest are Unconsecrated or simply you cal them zombies. Villagers live their life as zombies moan and push the fence everyday. But Mary has dreams of ocean from the day she saw a old photograph as a child. But no one believes in such thing anymore because no one knows what is there behind the forest of zombies. In between this she falls in love with a man whom she can’t have according to sisterhood. Sisterhood rules over the village as they help people to survive from zombies. But Mary finds out that there is some dark secret sisterhood is keeping from villagers. Before she could do anything about it the village is under attack from zombies. Mary and her friends run away through forest when everyone turns into zombies. Now Mary  has got her chance to explore what lies behind the forest and find a way to ocean.

I loved this book ♥ I am definitely going to read the remaining books in ”The Forest of Hands and Teeth” series. Highly recommended for people who loves to sink their teeth in zombie novels 🙂
