leedock’s CBR-III Review #14-“The Dead-Tossed Waves” and #15-“The Dark and Hollow Places”– Carrie Ryan

These are the 2nd and 3rd books of the Carrie Ryan post-apocalyptic zombie trilogy. (I reviewed the first one here.) The entire trilogy is a great read and probably the best one that I have read since “The Hunger Games.” Coming of age during the zombie apocalypse could easily become a melodramatic cheese fest, but Ryan pulls it off with engaging characters, compelling emotional struggles outside of the horror plot and suspenseful action that isn’t restrained for a young adult audience. The shift of voice from book to book gives an interesting look at each of the characters in terms of how they see themselves as well as how the other characters see them.
