The Dark and Hollow Places

THE FOREST OF HANDS AND TEETH introduced us to Mary and took us into her world - a world where decades after The Return mankind is hanging on to survival surrounded by the endless hordes of the undead; the Unconsecrated. A novel of extraordinary power and imagination, FOREST took you to the centre of a terrible future and showed you that even there the hardest decisions are the decisions of the heart. A companion novel, THE DEAD TOSSED WAVES, followed in Spring 2010 and this novel will continue Ryan's superb story. Perfect for readers looking for their next injection of supernatural thrills and dread, the series has already proved to be a word-of-mouth sensation, powered by extraordinary internet activity.

About the Author

Carrie Ryan lives in North Carolina with her partner. She trained to be a lawyer before becoming a full-time writer.


Gr 9 Up-What would you do if you knew you only had a few days left to live? This question haunts Annah nearly as much as the ever-present Unconsecrated (zombies) that thirst for human blood in this, the final chapter in Ryan's thriller/romance trilogy. Every day in the Dark City is a struggle for survival, but when a series of mishaps unites Annah with the mysterious Catcher, she wonders if she has finally found a reason to live in a world overwhelmed by death. The well-paced story churns along, fueled by an overpowering sense of dread and Annah's immediate narrative voice. Though unafraid to go into gory detail, Ryan skillfully balances the gross-out bits with romance and beautifully written passages highlighting hope amid chaos and despair. The easily identifiable characters are developed well; even some of the zombies are shown in three dimensions. Some readers may grow tired of Annah's rather repetitive (and often annoying) self-reflection, but the romantic entanglements and plentiful flesh-eating action should keep the teeming hordes of zombie fans sated.-Sam Bloom, Groesbeck Branch Library, Cincinnati, OH (c) Copyright 2011.
