There are many things that Annah would like to forget: the look on her sister's face when she and Elias left her behind in the Forest of Hands and Teeth, her first glimpse of the horde as they found their way to the Dark City, the sear of the barbed wire that would scar her for life. But most of all, Annah would like to forget the morning Elias left her for the Recruiters. 

Annah's world stopped that day and she's been waiting for him to come home ever since. Without him, her life doesn't feel much different from that of the dead that roam the wasted city around her. Then she meets Catcher and everything feels alive again. 

Except, Catcher has his own secrets -- dark, terrifying truths that link him to a past Annah's longed to forget, and to a future too deadly to consider. And now it's up to Annah -- can she continue to live in a world drenched in the blood of the living? Or is death the only escape from the Return's destruction? Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " The first half was really draggy but it definitely picked up! I still found the first book to be the better of the three (a sort of Walking Dead meets The Villiage). This book was much better than the second one though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tfalcone | 1/24/2014

    " Not as good as the others, I finished it just to stay up on the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 June Woodhouse | 1/23/2014

    " This is the last of the trilogy of books in the forest of hands and teeth series, I found it very edge of the seat stuff and how Annah escaped from her many near death situations was incredible, like a cat with 9 lives. It was very enjoyable although this last book seemed to drag just a wee bit, hence a star knocked off, also there was no history to where it all began or why, but a good page turner and those relentless unconsecrated and vicious recruiters, how they ever stand a chance...well you'll have to see for yourself ;) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chandra | 1/8/2014

    " Wow!! Annah is definately my favorite of the three girls. I loved just about everything in this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lesley | 12/24/2013

    " This book was ok. I loved the original story however this particular story line i had a hard time digesting. If fact, i hated it and couldn't get into the idea of catcher being with someone else. Let alone her sister...call me crazy. However, the zombie thing was done well so i'll give it 2 stars. "

    " As third books often do, this one didn't grip me as much as the previous two. Perhaps something to do with yet another narrator, even with Gabry still present. Elias seemed to completely disappear in this book, which was unfortunate. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris Paul | 11/29/2013

    " It does a good job of wrapping up the series, and I felt like the author's voice was stronger in this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy! | 10/24/2013

    " Definitely the weakest of Ryan's triology. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katherine | 4/1/2013

    " Carrie Ryan's writing style is eloquent, seamless and smooth. From (The Forest of Hands and Teeth) to (The Dark and Hollow Places) she leaves you breathless and craving more! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Orlaith | 11/29/2012

    " Much bleaker than the previous two books, but becoming a bit formulaic and predictable. The city setting makes the outbreak much easier to relate to (and scarier!), but sometimes this feels like a rehash of the same book with different people. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Weena | 11/23/2012

    " Great suspense and intensity. I like that the characters in these books are realistic. They aren't macho butt kicking superheroes, but normal people struggling to survive in a zombie filled world. It did start to fizzle a little bit towards the end, but quickly picked back up again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Madison | 9/13/2012

    " It was a very good book, I really wish that the series wasn't over. There are my favorite books!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Goge (BARRONS) le Moning Maniac, | 5/28/2012

    " STALLLED! Tragically stalled.. because I'm back in college and the book's not here :( I'm 3/4 of the way done though:D "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sierra | 6/30/2011

    " Best Zombie Series ever! This book made my heart jump and I would recomend it. Why aren't there more books like this?!?!? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ami | 6/26/2011

    " A very satisfying end to the trilogy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 6/24/2011

    " I really enjoyed it by the end, but I was slow to warm up to the main character, Annah. So it just gets 3 stars from me. I love this series though and can't wait for the next one! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mana | 6/23/2011

    " i couldnt wait for this book! i love zombies , i love the idea of this trilogy, i love everything about it! worth the read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alisha | 6/17/2011

    " I liked the first book in this series a lot, but 2 & 3 were a little too "Twilighty" for me - just switch out the vampires for zombies :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 6/17/2011

    " Not as good as the other books.....but it's still good. It has slight jealousy in it.....! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vica | 6/17/2011

    " Wow, sooooo awesome! I fell in love with Catcher!!!!! Aghhhhhh! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth | 6/16/2011

    " You do not want to miss this last enstalment of the forest of hands and teeth trilogy. It is an amazing book and Carrie Ryan knits up the story in a nice warm bundle worthy of praise. "
