Teaser Tuesday: The Dead-Tossed Waves reviews & blurbs

I honestly can't believe that the paperback release of The Forest of Hands and Teeth is a week away. A WEEK! Yesterday my UPS man stopped by with two boxes of them! This is on top of Friday when he dropped off a case of the FHT re-jacketed hardcover and the day earlier in the week when he dropped off a case of FHT with the old cover! I'm swimming in them (and am natch planning a contest)!

In second book news, reviews of The Dead-Tossed Waves have started coming in. This is that point in the process where I tend to open official emails with only one eye open, a little scared of what will be inside. Thankfully so far everything's been great! Here are a few things people have been saying:

"Proving once again why she is one of the most gifted voices in modern YA, Carrie Ryan threads life, love, and subtle beauty throughout a monstrous, post-apocalyptic world."
- Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl, bestselling authors of Beautiful Creatures

"The Dead-Tossed Waves was even more engrossing than The Forest of Hands and Teeth. Beautiful, romantic, horrifying and heart-breaking."
-Jennifer Lynn Barnes, author of Raised by Wolves, Tattoo, Golden, Fate and more!

"The second book in Ryan's zombie series moves the story ahead in some surprising ways as it introduces compelling characters. Readers will be up late with this one, turning pages and biting their nails."
-Romantic Times

"Fast-paced... [The Dead-Tossed Waves] will be gobbled up by fans of the first volume like brains."
-Kirkus Reviews (yes, they came back from the dead to give me that review)

YAY! Now I'm off to finish working on the third book in the series!

Congrats Carrie!! The early reviews sound fantastic. I cannot believe the release is a week away! Man, I'd kill for a review copy. Guess I'll shell out for it the old fashioned way :)

I just finished reading TFOHAT, and I must say, I really don't doubt any of those reviews! I'll be awaiting by the bookshelves eagerly for the release - with a droplet of drool sliding down the side of my mouth!

I still have my signed hard copy you sent me. I truly cherish it. I was so glad to have the original artwork on the cover of that one.

Can't wait for the Dead Tossed Waves. Congratulations on all the positive buzz. (Hugs)Indigo

Oooh, can't wait until March!

And I'm psyched to hear the paperbacks are almost out. I'm going to get a few copies of FHT for my classroom.
