Waiting on Wednesday 4/2/14 Messenger of Fear

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week I am so excited about this one:

 messenger of fear

Messenger of Fear by Michael Grant. August 26, 2014

From Goodreads:

“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.”

If Michael Grant’s name is on it, I will read it. Always and forever because the man is a genius. Disturbed, but genius.

Happy Reading!

  1. I’ve not read any of his books yet. I heard the Gone Series is really good!

  2. This sounds intriguing. I’ve had trouble getting into the Gone series, but I do want to try again. I can’t understand why I haven’t been able to get into it because it seems like something I should love.

  3. This looks great! I know a kid who’s a real Michael Grant fan, I can’t wait to tell him about this book!

  4. So I’m lame and I haven’t read Michael Grant, but this? Yeah, definitely going on my TBR because it sounds haunting and a perfect read for me:) Thanks for opening my eyes to this wonder!
