Forest of hand and teeth series

Dopo qualche giorno eccomi quì, sto ancora leggendo la saga di un paio di posts fa ma questo libro l'ho già letto e quindi ne parlo. In italiano diventa La foresta degli amori perduti ma leggendo sinceramente non si capisce quale mente malata ha partorito questo bizzarro titolo. In titolo originale invece è chiaro, parla di gente che ha chiaramente qualche problema dopo un morso...zombies?? Boh, forse non è chiaro, di sicuro quella sadicona di Carrie Ryan che mi ammazza uno dei protagonisti subito così nel primo libro...NON SI FA!!!

1. La foresta degli amori perduti
Nel mondo di Mary ci sono delle semplici verità e un bellissimo ricordo. La Congregazione delle Sorelle sa sempre cos’è meglio, i Guardiani proteggono e servono, e il racconto della madre, persa nella Foresta, sul colore e l’odore dell’oceano è sempre nella sua mente. E bisogna sempre sorvegliare il recinto che circonda il villaggio, che lo protegge dalla Foresta e da coloro che la abitano, gli Sconsacrati. Ma poco a poco le verità di Mary cominciano a crollare. Imparerà presto cose che non avrebbe mai voluto sapere sulle Sorelle e sui loro segreti, sui Guardiani e sul loro potere. E quando il recinto verrà aperto, conoscerà gli Sconsacrati e ciò che li anima. Dovrà scegliere tra il villaggio e il proprio futuro, tra colui che ama, Travis, e chi è innamorato di lei, Harry, il fratello maggiore di Travis. E infine dovrà affrontare la verità su ciò che nasconde la Foresta e sul destino di sua madre, che per amore del compagno, preso dagli Sconsacrati, finisce in un mondo pieno di insidie, fascino e mistero.
2.The dead tossed waves
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.
3.The dark and hollow places
There are many things that Annah would like to forget: the look on her sister's face before Annah left her behind in the Forest of Hands and Teeth, her first glimpse of the Horde as they swarmed the Dark City, the sear of the barbed wire that would scar her for life. But most of all, Annah would like to forget the morning Elias left her for the Recruiters. Annah's world stopped that day, and she's been waiting for Elias to come home ever since. Somehow, without him, her life doesn't feel much different than the dead that roam the wasted city around her. Until she meets Catcher, and everything feels alive again. But Catcher has his own secrets. Dark, terrifying truths that link him to a past Annah has longed to forget, and to a future too deadly to consider. And now it's up to Annah: can she continue to live in a world covered in the blood of the living? Or is death the only escape from the Return's destruction?

0.1. Hare moon
Tabitha can’t shake the feeling that something exists beyond the fences of her village. And when she sneaks out, past the gates and down the path into the Forest of Hands and Teeth, she meets a boy who teaches her heart things she never knew. But love in a world surrounded by so much death doesn’t come without its sacrifices, and Tabitha gradually realizes just how much she’ll have to give up to live among the Unconsecrated.
0.2. Flotsam & Jetsam
New York Times bestselling author Carrie Ryan returns to the terrifying world of the Forest of Hands and Teeth with the short story, "Flotsam & Jetsam." When the zombie outbreak erupts on their ship during their senior cruise, two friends escape in a life raft only to find themselves adrift in an endless ocean with no rescue in sight. What’s worse: one of them is infected.
0.3.Scenic route
New York Times bestselling author Carrie Ryan returns to the terrifying world of the Forest of Hands and Teeth with the short story, "Scenic Route." In the wake of the zombie apocalypse, Margie and her sister Sally think they’ve found safe refuge in a remote cabin on top of a mountain. But when a charming stranger arrives at their door, they learn that sometimes the living can be more monstrous than the undead. 
0.4. Bouganvillea 
In the wake of the zombie apocalypse, the island of Curacao becomes one of the few remaining pockets of safety. Iza's father rules the island with a cruel and militant fist, showing little mercy to those who come begging at his docks. Iza chafes under his absolute control, refusing to believe that ruthlessness is the only path to survival. But when zombies breach their compound one night and rebels take her hostage, Iza must decide for herself what it truly takes to survive in a world filled with death and betrayal. Set in the zombie world of The Forest of Hands and Teeth, Bougainvillea is the story of growing up between two worlds: the living and the dead, the rulers and the ruled, the privileged and the cast off. PLEASE NOTE: this is a short story, not a full novel. It was originally published in the Zombies vs. Unicorns anthology and is included in the collection, The Dead and Empty World (also available).
0.5.What once we feared 
When the zombie apocalypse hits and the dead begin to rise, Jonah and his friends are on a class field trip downtown.  Panicked, they make a split-second decision to seek shelter in the Overlook, an apartment complex built like a fortress on the edge of town.  But as they begin to face the realities of what it will take to survive, they realize that while making the decision of where to run was easy, living out the consequences of that decision may be impossible.  From Carrie Ryan, the New York Times bestselling author of the Forest of Hands and Teeth books, What Once We Feared is an original digital short story about facing a world that is forever changed and in which survival means more than merely escaping the undead.

  1. Mannaggia, speravo di prendere spunti dalle tue letture ma vedo che abbiamo proprio gusti diversi. Comunque ...Piacere di conoscerti!

  2. Ciao Anna Maria, mi spiace, in realtà io leggo anche altro ma ho scelto di parlare di urban fantasy perchè mi piace e perchè è meno "trattato" e lo si può intuire dalle pubblicazioni sospese. Che genere cerchi?


Grazie per il tuo commento!!!
