Book Review: The Dead-Tossed Waves.

First and Foremost, I want to say that when people say sequels never live up to the original, they are wrong. Secondly, I really liked this book. Unlike it's companion, it did not take me long at all to jump right into this story, I was grabbed and yanked in,right from the beginning. However, roughly around pages 100 through 150, I felt as if I were drowning in repetitiveness, but it didn't last long. Carrie Ryan did a great job with this second novel in the series, and so I can only imagine that the third time will be a charm when the final book in this trilogy is released next year.

Gabrielle grew up on the shores of Vista, tending the lighthouse with her mother, Mary. Living among the living, in a safe, secure and happy world. Until her best friend and her friend's brother talk her into sneaking over the barrier, into the abandoned amusement park, next to the ruins. Until they don't see the Mudo Breaker until it's almost too late. Then Gabry's world changes overnight, she runs away, Catcher gets infected, Cira is arrested, her mother goes back into the forest of hands and teeth, and Elias seems to be her savior.Trying to protect her friendship, her love, her mother and all she believes in takes Gabry down a path she never could have imagined, one that is neither safe nor secure. Killing a man, running from the Recruiters, finding her real home, and losing everyone she loves will either destroy her permanently or will wake her up to realize the person she has always been, but was just to afraid to become.
