Description
In Mary's world there are simple truths. nbsp;nbsp; The Sisterhood always knows best. nbsp;nbsp; The Guardians will protect and serve. nbsp;nbsp; The Unconsecrated will never relent. nbsp;nbsp; And you must always mind the fence that surrounds the village; the fence that protects the village from the Forest of Hands and Teeth. nbsp;nbsp; 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, when the fence is breached and her world is thrown into chaos, about the Unconsecrated and their relentlessness. nbsp;nbsp; Now, 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? [ STAR ] "A bleak but gripping story...Poignant and powerful."- Publishers Weekly , Starred "A postapocalyptic romance of the first order, elegantly written from title to last line."-Scott Westerfeld, author of the Uglies series and Leviathan "Intelligent, dark, and bewitching, The Forest of Hands and Teeth transitions effortlessly between horror and beauty. Mary's world is one that readers will not soon forget."-Cassandra Clare, bestselling author of City of Bones "Opening The Forest of Hands and Teeth is like cracking Pandora's box: a blur of darkness and a precious bit of hope pour out. This is a beautifully crafted, page-turning, powerful novel. I thoroughly enjoyed it."-Melissa Marr, bestselling author of Wicked Lovely and Ink Exchange "Dark and sexy and scary. Only one of the Unconsecrated could put this book down."-Justine Larbalestier, author of How to Ditch Your Fairy From the Hardcover edition.
