Title: Messenger Of FearAuthor: Michael GrantGenres: YA, Paranormal, Science FictionRelease Date: September 23, 2014
Michael Grant, author of the New York Times bestselling Gone series, has created a powerful and brilliant narrative that examines the nature of good and evil in every human.
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 violence. 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 chosen 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.
WOW!!! Such an interesting concept. Everything about the "Messenger of Fear" character interests me -- his powers, his game and its consequences. I especially want to know who he is really. Having read Grant's Gone series, I wouldn't be surprised if he's got some major secrets to hide. I want to get my hands on this book ASAP.
