Editorial Reviews

“This book gave me chill after chill. My message to you: read it in a safe, well-lighted place. It’s fright fiction at its best!” R. L. Stine, New York Times bestselling author
“The enviably cunning and ever versatile Michael Grant explodes on the scene with Messenger of Fear, a palpitating horror fantasy mash-up with a genius twist that blew my mind. I walked through O’Hare with this book in my face—I couldn’t stop reading!” Lisa McMann, New York Times bestselling author of the Wake trilogy
“Mesmerizing, horrifying, and deeply thought provoking.” Carrie Ryan, New York Times bestselling author
“Grant’s new series starts off with a bang and never lets up. Mara is a strong, relatable character who stands up for herself, while also regretful of some of the things she has done in her past. The games the Messenger of Fear plays with his victims are gruesome and graphic, which will delight those readers who enjoy a little gore and horror in their books…A promising start to a series with a truly unique concept.” School Library Journal
“An unusual and intriguing puzzle of a book.” Kirkus Reviews
