But then she and her friends dare to go through the barrier and the very worst happens, shattering the life she knew forever. Gabry’s world is destroyed she now has to face not only her fears, but all that is terrifying.

Sequel to the well-received The Forest of Hands and Teeth, The Dead-Tossed Waves continues to consider the question of what it would be like to live in constant terror of being over-run by a menace that could not just kill you, but could mean the destruction of the entire place you live, and all those around you.
