And here's the cover copy for The Dead-Tossed Waves:Gabry lives a quiet life. As safe a life as is possible in a town trapped between a forest and the ocean, in a world teeming with the dead, who constantly hunger for those still living. She's content on her side of the Barrier, happy to let her friends dream of the Dark City up the coast while she watches from the top of her lighthouse.
But there are threats the Barrier cannot hold back. Threats like the secrets Gabry's mother thought she left behind when she escaped from the Sisterhood and the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Like the cult of religious zealots who worship the dead. Like the stranger from the forest who seems to know Gabry.
And suddenly, everything is changing. One reckless moment, and half of Gabry's generation is dead, the other half imprisoned. Now Gabry only knows one thing: she must face the forest of her mother's past in order to save herself and the one she loves.
Back in April, after The Forest of Hands and Teeth came out, Carrie Ryan released a cover picture of The Dead-Tossed Waves (cover art probably by the same artist).
Then, just a week ago, she announced that there will be new covers for The Forest of Hands and Teeth when it comes out in trade paperback and a new cover for The Dead-Tossed Waves.
Now for the real question - which cover do you like better? I actually really like them both - but I think they set a much different tone for the book. There's a wistfulness and a longing to cover one while cover two is definitely darker. I love the creepiness of cover two, but part of me is still partial to cover one since it matches the tone of my copy of Forest of Hands and Teeth.
