Mara wakes in a field of
dead grass, a heavy mist pressing down on her. She is terrified, afraid that
she is dead.
There is a boy in that
mist, a beautiful young man dressed in black and able to move effortlessly
through space and time. He is the Messenger of Fear.
The Messenger 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, 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 of 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.
Told through compelling
stories that are masterfully intertwined, Messenger of Fear is about the
terrible choices that people make in life. 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. Download and start listening now!
