There are many things that Annah would like to forget: the look on her sister's face before Annah left her behind in the Forest of Hands and Teeth, her first glimpse of the Horde as they swarmed the Dark City, the sear of the barbed wire that would scar her for life. But most of all, Annah would like to forget the morning Elias left her for the Recruiters.

Annah's world stopped that day, and she's been waiting for Elias to come home ever since. Somehow, without him, her life doesn't feel much different than the dead that roam the wasted city around her. Until she meets Catcher, and everything feels alive again.

But Catcher has his own secrets. Dark, terrifying truths that link him to a past Annah has longed to forget, and to a future too deadly to consider. And now it's up to Annah: can she continue to live in a world covered in the blood of the living? Or is death the only escape from the Return's destruction?

I've had this book on my TBR pile for ages. So last week I decided it was time to finish off this excellent zombie trilogy. Besides, my daughter's waiting to read it. :)

Annah has been surviving in the Dark City all by herself since Elias left her to join the Recruiters over three years ago. Just when she's ready to leave the city, she gets dragged back in when she's positive she spots her twin sister. A sister she hasn't seen since Elias and Annah left her alone in the Forest when they were kids.

But the city is a very dangerous place and the night a mysterious man who calls himself Catcher saves her, she meets the only immune person she's ever known. He also leads her to her sister, Elias, and a sanctuary that presents more problems than safety.

I really enjoyed this book. I think it was an awesome end to an awesome trilogy. It was scary, filled with tension, danger and a sweet romance between two very broken characters. Annah hides behind her scars, while Catcher hides behind his immunity. But in a dead world, it's not worth denying what your heart feels... Otherwise, what's the point of fighting so hard to live?

Loved it!!
