In Mary’s world there are simple truths. The Sisterhood always knows best. The Guardians will protect and serve. The Unconsecrated will never relent. And you must always mind the fence that surrounds the village; the fence that protects the village from the Forest of Hands and Teeth. But, slowly, Mary’s truths are failing her. She’s learning things she never wanted to know about the Sisterhood and its secrets, and the Guardians and their power, and about the Unconsecrated and their relentlessness. When the fence is breached and her world is thrown into chaos, she must choose between her village and her future—between the one she loves and the one who loves her. And she must face the truth about the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Could there be life outside a world surrounded in so much death?

    " So finally finished the Whole trilogy! yea!, So the dark and hollow places is quite an interesting book as the rest are as well, thank god the main character "Annah" is the more Tough chick in the series instead of the whyneness and drama, of gabry did get on my nerves a bit on the last book, but this one is much better! she does what she has to do to survive. the ideas for the Zombies are great and so is the plot of all 3 books really, though the whole trilogy does have a bit of a problem, the drama can get annoying at times, I feel it centers a little to much on the romance and not as much on the Zombies and Survival. It did end on a satisfying note, idk if there will be more, though despite the flaws the series has I think it is defanatley worth a read. I just feel if Carrie Ryan made the other two characters a bit more tough and not as whiney about the Love triangle it could have been a very popular series like the Hunger games or close around there.Dont get me wrong I would be a lttlte whiney as well in thier situation, but they whine and focus too much on the guys, Annah in this book not as much but still a little bit. hopefully Carrie ryan will hit the Bulls eye next time, regardless though it Was a very unique take on zombies and plot which is why I gave this series a good review. Def. worth a read, I really gave this book 4.4 Stars and the Trilogy as a whole 4.3 Stars :) "

    " To be honest, I thought this one would be better after reading reviews on it. I liked Annah, but unlike the two main characters in the books before this one, who put on a weak front then showed their strength and determination, I thought it was almost the opposite with Annah. I liked her a lot though. Her determination and fight. I love her relationships and her protectiveness over her vulnerable past and the burden she carries from it. I thought she was an intriguing character, but the writing got really repetitive and I started to loose interest. Gabry seemed really different to me and I was really sad that she was so different from the last book. I liked the last two much better than this one and found them much more engaging, but this one was alright and ended well. I don't know if I'll ever read it again, but it left you with a good feeling and that these people who have been through so much intense suffering might finally have a happy furure. "
