"You have to be ruthless to survive".

I think this is one of those short stories that really deserves to be embellished upon and released as a larger story. The is ostensibly a pirates tale, rather than the zombie tale it's intended to be as part of The Forest of Hands and Teeth series. By the way, you absolutely don't need to have read Carrie Ryan's series to enjoy this book; the characters are entirely new and the world mostly separate with no ties to anything you need to know for a backstory.

Its set only a few (maybe a decade?) years after the Return (aka: when the mudo began manifesting) and it gives us a different perspective on things. Iza remembers life before the Return, though really only vaguely. The story is told in both the 'Before' and the 'Now', going back and forth between her memories of growing up on Curacao and the events leading up to an epiphany about not only her father, but herself as well. The ending is...bittersweet. She found her strength, but by doing so she ...more

This is my favorite of her short stories in the world of TFoH&T.

I've read it in a couple different collections that it was featured in, but it's the only one that I really wish there was some expansion on.

Coming back to see what happens to Iza at the end. What happens after. What sort of woman she grows into.

I put it more on the same level as I do the actual books in my head which is saying a lot about a short story and my opinion of it.

*noticed there was an actual entry for it as a solo,

This short story is both sweet and shocking. There is a powerful daughter on a much-wanted island. Can her father protect her from the hoards and the pirates that want to invade? Or can she do something to save herself?

Hmm

I don't really like this book. Can't say I enjoyed it at all. It was kind of boring to me. Totally different from the other short stories to forest of hands and teeth.

This is one of the short stories that I would really like to see expanded into a full novel. I would love to know more about Iza and what happens after this story ends.

FH&T short story. Not my favorite of her stories. Not enough zombies. Not the edge of your seat thriller that I'm used to from her.
