Review: The Dead-Tossed Waves
The Dead-Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book follows Mary's daughter, Gabry. She has lived a safe, sheltered life inside her village, as the lighthouse keeper. Her and her mother keep the shore safe from the Mudo (zombies) who wash up from the ocean. Soon she realizes that her world is turning upside down. She must learn about her past, her mother's past, and the world around her. After a series of dangerous events, she must flee the village and go into the forest if she is to save herself and her friends.
All I can say is, whoa. This, in my opinion was even better than the first book because it kept my attention and I really could not guess what would happen next. It kept surprising me again and again until I had no idea what was going to happen.
I liked that the story was about Gabry. It gave another perspective of the world they live in. There was another love triangle, and, as in the first book, I wished there was more explanation of the relationships going on there. Even so, it was still an excellent book and kept me entertained.
Action-packed zombie-fighting, twists and turns, abandoned villages, creepy forests...yea, it was pretty awesome. Can't wait to read the next book.
