The games continue in New York Times bestselling author Michael Grant’s sequel to Messenger of Fear—a haunting tale for fans of Stephen King that combines fantasy with real-world horror stories.

Mara has learned to punish the wicked as the Messenger’s apprentice. Those who act out of selfishness and greed and others who become violent because of prejudice and hate pay the ultimate price. But Mara is constantly reminded that Messengers are serving their own kind of punishment—for every person who is offered justice, they wear a tattoo that symbolizes the heart of the crime. As Mara delves deeper into her harsh reality, she will discover that in spite of all the terror she and the Messenger inflict, caring in this world is the hardest part of all.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This will appeal to fans of the first installment as well as those who enjoy gory reads.”

    School Library Journal

  • “The second book in Grant’s series moves as quickly as Mara and Messenger do when they are working, gliding from one event to another, narrated by Mara’s sometimes-philosophical, sometimes-snarky voice. The horrific punishments are sobering, but so are the realistic horrors that the guilty inflict on the innocent…Readers will…be satisfied with Mara’s growing maturity and acceptance of her own fate.”


  • “An absorbing morality tale of guilt and redemption.”
