Messenger of fear
By Michael Grant

ISBN 9780062207401

This is the first book in a new series by Michael Grant. His Gone series is still hugely popular and I have no doubt this series will also be a huge hit.

Mara can remember her name but nothing else. The young man, pale and solemn standing before her, tells her nothing. He does however inform her that at least she isn’t dead. But what is she and what are his plans for her? The messenger of fear sees darkness in the hearts of the young. Left unpunished, he offers a game, a wicked game where losing may be  a living nightmare and the price paid the most ultimate price of all! Where does Mara fit in all this?

I just know this is  going to be brilliant. Can’t wait! Not long now and the trailer is very cool. Check out the website above to read a sample chapter. I did and I loved the great descriptive language and the short sharp sentences. They hooked me in right from the start.

PLEASE NOTE: This book includes the details of a suicide so please ensure that if you are recommending or supplying this book to your students or your own  children that they are mature enough to handle the content. Be prepared to listen if they need to talk about anything that disturbs them in this book. Thanks!
