I loved Carrie Ryan's first book in the Forest of Hands and Teeth trilogy. I've yet to read the sequels but I'm expecting good things. However a short story, set in the same world, which first appeared in the Kiss Me Deadly anthology edited by Trisha Telep entitled Hare Moon, has now been made available to buy as a separate ebook. UK prices are £1.14 Kindle and £1.31 (epub at Kobo).
Here's the blurb:
HARE MOON: An Original Forest of Hands and Teeth Story is set in the barricaded village of The Forest of Hands and Teeth, but takes place years before the novel began. Tabitha, an adult character in the first book, is a teenager who dreams for there to be more to her world. This desire pushes her to sneak past her village gates and into the Forest of Hands and Teeth where the undead reach for her from beyond the fence. And where she meets Patrick, who proves there is life beyond her village. HARE MOON answers questions about how Tabitha the teenager became Sister Tabitha of The Forest of Hands and Teeth. Readers will live through the gruesome moment when she realizes just how much she’ll have to give up to live and love among the Unconsecrated.
It appears there are a few short stories set in the Forest of Hands and Teeth world to be tracked down. You can read one of them at Carrie Ryan's website.
