The Forest of Hands and Teeth

A chain link fence defines Mary’s world; her life is ruled by traditions imposed on her isolated village by The Sisterhood, a religious order of women charged with protecting the town from “The Unconsecrated.” The Sisterhood selects men as Guardians to roam the perimeter of the fence watching for any breach created by the constant clawing of the flesh-eating zombies that are “The Unconsecrated.” As Mary works to save the people she loves and uncover the mystery of her village, she dreams of things beyond the forest, like seeing “The Ocean,” finding other plague survivors and falling in love.
