The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie RyanIn Marys 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 by so much death?
The Forest of Hands and Teeth - Carrie Ryan
The Forest of Hands and Teeth
No, we're not talking about M. Or… wait… maybe we are. Let's see. Small village surrounded by a barrier? People stuck with prehistoric technology and no access to the outside world? A group of elders who rule the village? Creepy monsters outside the borders?
The Forest of Hands and Teeth is a massive plot of woodland that surrounds the village, and is divided up by small, fenced-in paths. The Forest of Hands and Teeth is populated by isolated, small towns and villages, and borders the ocean. It is into the Forest of Hands and Teeth that Mary and her companions seek to escape through using the paths. The village is surrounded by the Forest of Hands and Teeth, and is dominated by the Cathedral. It is a well-populated village, having grown up from an isolated, at-risk hamlet.
The Sisterhood always knows best. The Guardians will protect and serve. The Unconsecrated will never relent.
