When I was first reading this book I was a little bit upset because I wanted more of Mary’s story, which I didn’t realize she wasn’t supposed to be the main character. Then of course we found out what Gabry had to do with Mary and their relationship and everything, and as the story unfolded we did learn more about what happened to Mary, so then that was a lot better. That aside, The Dead-Tossed Waves was just as good as The Forest of Hands and Teeth, which I loved, because sometimes sequels/companions really don’t live up to the first book in the series. I liked Gabry as the main character a lot more then I liked Mary. I also thought the story might’ve been more interesting as it just seemed to go more places, there wasn’t a lot of lingering. I loved the whole mystery of who Gabry was, and her discovering that and Elias and everything. I also enjoyed getting to figure out more about the Unconsecrated/Mudo/Infected (Breakers, Immunes) especially because that wasn’t really elaborated on in The Forest of Hands and Teeth. Anyway, I don’t want to say much else because I don’t want to spoil things for people that haven’t yet read The Forest of Hands and Teeth. I highly recommend this series! I can’t wait for “The Dark and Hollow Places” to come out later this month.
