Review: The Dead-Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan

Gabry lives a quiet life. As safe a life as is possible in a town trapped between a forest and the ocean, in a world teeming with the dead, who constantly hunger for those still living. She’s content on her side of the Barrier, happy to let her friends dream of the Dark City up the coast while she watches from the top of her lighthouse. But there are threats the Barrier cannot hold back. Threats like the secrets Gabry’s mother thought she left behind when she escaped from the Sisterhood and the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Like the cult of religious zealots who worship the dead. Like the stranger from the forest who seems to know Gabry. And suddenly, everything is changing. One reckless moment, and half of Gabry’s generation is dead, the other half imprisoned. Now Gabry only knows one thing: she must face the forest of her mother’s past in order to save herself and the one she loves.
My Take
To start off I did not even finish this book. Their is 404 pages in this book and i only read 230
Well this book wasnt really for me, or this trilogy. I wasnt relating to the charectors and over all Sci-Fi Fantasy isnt for me. I just wasnt able to get into all the action parts. Dont get me wrong i did like some parts. But it wasnt enough to continue the book. The book is better then the first one I must say. This book is about Mary's daughter Gabry. This book holds some things that will shock you. Gabry's whole life has been a lie, now she must find it in herself to continue and build a new world. Gabry sees some things that i could never imagine in a life time. I would recommend this book to any one who likes to read about vampires,monsters or zombies. Those things just arn't for me. However I did find I liked the way that Carrie Ryan was able to add so muc hdetail into certain parts of the book. It really created suspense.

My Rating

2 out of 5 stars


  1. I think this is one of those genre books that people are only going to like if you're into the genre.

  2. I've actually really enjoyed this series so far! I'm sorry you didn't like it. I agree with Sara, it's definitely one of those genre-specific sorts of books. Thank you for the honest review :)

  3. goodmorning! I would have to say sci-fi or anything like that isnt for me. But im happy your liking it though=)
