A New York Times Best Seller

In Mary's world, there are simple truths.
The Sisterhood always knows best.
The Guardians will protect and serve.
The Unconsecrated will never relent.
And you must always mind the fence that surrounds the village....

Mary has always lived in the village, protected by the fences that keep the undead from devouring her. She's dreamed of a life beyond the fences, of the ocean in the stories her mother told her about life before the Return. Her hope has all but faltered until the day Gabrielle wanders in from the forest. Until the day the fences are breached.

Heart-stopping, eye-popping. This books is incredible! One can't help but feel connected to Mary and her world. To feel her yearning for the ocean and to solve the mysteries surrounding the Sisterhood and the Guardians.

The ending does leave something to be desired but have no fear, THE DEAD TOSSED WAVES is here!

Part horror, part romance, this book is impossible to put down.

  1. Ooh, sounds cool, and creepy ... thanks for sharing L.J.

    Now I have a new gift idea for one or both of my daughters.

    Books make the best gifts ever. They please and entertain the one who receives them and support an industry and art form that I love - and hope to break into one day.

    Other novice writers: Buy Books, lots of em, especially debut novels if you ever want to get published.

    Shameless promotion for other reader/followers of your blog:

    I have an awesome guest post today on my blog by Cole Gibsen.

    This one is pure query/submission gold folks in which she shares the ACTUAL query that landed her an agent and the correspondence that ensued.

    Please stop by to read, comment and follow.


  2. Lacey - I knew you'd love this book as much as I did. I'm reading GONE by Lisa McMann right now and then it's on to The Dead-Tossed Waves!

  3. I've got GONE on my TBR pile. Reading Dead Tossed Waves right now and loving it just as much as this one. Her writing is so awesome!

  4. Matt, this book does have some pretty creepy imagery in it. Not for the squeamish!

    Going to check out your guest post. Loving your blog!
