Book Review #476 - Messenger of Fear (Messenger of Fear #1) by Michael Grant


I remembered my name – Mara. But, standing in that ghostly place, faced with the solemn young man in the black coat with silver skulls for buttons, I could recall nothing else about myself.

And then the games began.

The Messenger sees the darkness in young hearts, and the damage it inflicts upon the world. If they go unpunished, he offers the wicked a game. Win, and they can go free. Lose, and they will live out their greatest fear.

But what does any of this have to do with Mara? She is about to find out . .

My Rating: 3/5

I received this book for review from Hardie Grant Egmont.

This was a very cryptic book. Like the protagonist, the reader is left completely in the dark about everything in what was a rather interesting world.

Whilst cryptic is usually associated with confusing, this book is an exception to that. This book reveals just enough along the way to just understand but not enough where you are able to predict where it's going.

When the plot is revealed rather slowly and meticulously throughout the pacing is important, and I felt like this book was paced rather well.
