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 Messenger inflict, caring in this world is the hardest part of all.
I was given an ARC by the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
There's just something about this series that's addicting.
I started reading this series when I received a copy of the first book in the series from Harper Collins. I did not request it, but it just came to me. The first book was just okay for me, but when I closed the book I felt like I needed to read the next one. The same thing happened
To be honest, I don't really like this series much. It's more of an 'okay' series. For the most part I felt bored. This is a weird series because I am not interested in the details. I am only interested in the bigger main story arc. Even though the ending is not a cliffhanger, there's just something about it that just makes me want to read the series.
I cannot wait for the next book and I really hope that the release date gets revealed soon!
