The Dark and Hollow Places
by Carrie Ryan

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. Now it's all 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?

The Hunt of the Unicorn
by C.C. Humphreys

Elayne thinks the old family story that one of her ancestors stepped through a tapestry into a world of mythical beasts makes a great fireside tale. But she lives in the real world—New York City. And she's outgrown that kind of fantasy. Until she finds herself in front of a unicorn tapestry at the Cloisters museum and sees her initials woven into the fabric; hears a unicorn calling to her, and slips and falls into that other world. Suddenly the line between fantasy and reality isn't so clear. But the danger is real enough.

The Door in the Forest
by Roderick Townley

At the mid point of three towns, in the center of three streams, in the heart of a forest, lies a mysterious island. Encircled by quicksand and sewn shut by vines, it is impenetrable to everyone except the poisonous snakes patrolling its waters. But Daniel and Emily are determined to get there. Roderick Townley spins a magical tale of lies and truths, of secrets kept and secrets revealed. Sooner or later, we all must step through the door in the forest.

I loved this book just as much as the other two. Though it seemed more contained (by contained I mean it didn't span miles and miles of travel like the other two books), it was equally as thrilling. I was seriously panicking as I read the last few chapters. One of Ryan's greatest strengths is her ability to create incredible tension. I felt this was the perfect finale to a wonderful series. I loved the way each book was told from a different perspective, yet every main character in every book was somehow tied to the previous character. It kep the series cohesive, while giving the reader a fresh voice with each book. My only complaint is that the series is over.
