This is the companion to The Forest of Hands and Teeth. I have heard many people say that it is not as good but i think it is, if not better. Mary goes on the adventure of a lifetime trying to figure out her life and who she is. Torn between two loves, her life before she was discovered, and the moudo, Mary sets out on an adventure to find answers to these questions. This is a really good book that i would reccomend to anyone looking for an adventure.
