Mara wakes in a field of dead grass, a heavy mist pressing down on her. She is terrified, afraid that she is dead. Then, a beautiful young man dressed in black appears. He calls himself Messenger of Fear.
This boy is able to move effortlessly through space and time. He also sees the darkness in human hearts. He sees the evils done: the destructive lies, the cruelty, the bullying, the voilence. And if the world does not bring justice to those who do evil, he will. He offers the wicked a game. If they win, they go free. If they lose, they will live their greatest fear. Either way, their sanity will be challenged. It is a world of fair but harsh justice. Of retribution and redemption. And mystery. Why was Mara chose to be the Messenger’s apprentice? What has she done to deserve this terrible fate? She won’t find out until three of the wicked receive justice. And when she does, she will be shattered.
Michael Grant is the author of the Gone series, which has consistently flown off book shelves across the globe, and I’m going to predict that this new book, is going to do the exact same. I haven’t had the opportunity to read the Gone series, yet (its on my list!) but I’ve heard nothing but fantastic things. I’m super excited to pick this up tomorrow and see what it’s like. It has a little bit of everything that’s gonna make it a great read!!!
