Michael Grant's Messenger of Fear is a haunting narrative that examines the nature of good and evil in every human. Fans of Michelle Hodkin's Mara Dyer trilogy and Stephen King will love this satisfyingly twisted series.

Mara Todd wakes in a field of dead grass, a heavy mist pressing down on her. She is terrified, afraid that she is dead. She can't remember who she is or anything about her past. Is it because of the boy who appears? He calls himself the Messenger of Fear. If the world does not bring justice to those who do evil, the Messenger 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.

About the Author

Michael Grant, author of the Gone series and the Magnificent Twelve series, has spent much of his life on the move. Raised in a military family, he attended ten schools in five states, as well as three schools in France. Even as an adult he kept moving, and in fact he became a writer in part because it was one of the few jobs that wouldn't tie him down. His fondest dream is to spend a year circumnavigating the globe and visiting every continent. Yes, even Antarctica. He lives in California with his wife, Katherine Applegate, and their two children.

I expected one thing, but this book delivered a different story. I was a little disappointed at first, but as the book progressed, and honestly in parts made me think it should be in the horror section rather than the YA, I ended up liking it the way it was. I didn't fall in love with this book, but I did like it.

Not my favorite of his, although picking my favorite Grant book would be hard. I love his style. The heart, the love, the terror, and complete willingness to destroy loved characters. I think he is brilliant, and I can not wait to read more of his work. I read the Gone and BZRK books, loved them all. Thank you Michael Grant!

I read his other series, 'Gone' and absolutely loved it! This book however was nothing like Gone, and was a complete disappointment. He does not jump around different characters, but instead focuses on one girl who is completely confused and dazed throughout the entire book. He takes a long time to reveal any true information, and I found it to drag on throughout the entire book. The pace is slow, and the book, only being 150 pages, left me felling like I had discovered nothing by the end of the book. In all, I would not recommend this book. The Gone series was much more developed and interesting!

Of fantasy messiah scifi and odd ends you will like this book. However it is rated as a YA which to me means simple words and short because they are not use to actually reading more than a few sentences at a time. Buska
