The Dark and Hollow Places Book Cover


There are many things that Annah would like to forget: the look on her sister's face when she and Elias left her behind in the Forest of Hands and Teeth, her first glimpse of the horde as they found their way to 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 him to come home ever since. Without him, her life doesn't feel much different from that of the dead that roam the wasted city around her. Then she meets Catcher and everything feels alive again.

Except, Catcher has his own secrets—dark, terrifying truths that link him to a past Annah's 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 drenched in the blood of the living? Or is death the only escape from the Return's destruction? 

Well, if you have been following this blog a while, you probably know that The Forest of Hands and Teeth, and The Dead-Tossed Waves are two of my absolute favorite books!  So, I'm completely excited about the next book The Dark and Hollow Places.  The release date is set for March 22, 2011.....the agony of waiting!!   If you have read the first two books, you know that DTW is more of a companion book than a sequel to FHT, but Carrie says that The Dark and Hollow Places will be a sequel to Dead-Tossed Waves.  Here are her words: (

I tend to think of The Dark and Hollow Places as more of a sequel to The Dead-Tossed Waves than a companion.  I know there's been confusion before about why DTW is called a companion and I'll post more on that decision later this week.  It's not really a huge distinction and it was more for clarification and to establish expectations than anything else.

But for those of you who have emailed, wondering if we get to know what happens to the characters from the end of The Dead-Tossed Waves -- yes :)

I can't wait for this book!!  If you haven't read the first two, go and read them NOW!!  Here's my review of The Forest of Hands and Teeth.  And my review of the even more fabulous The Dead-Tossed Waves!  Why are you still here???  Go read them!!
