Waiting on Wednesday (86)

Waiting on Wednesday
is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine
 that showcases upcoming releases 
that people are very much anticipating.

The following book comes from an author who has no boundaries. His books (at least, the series I read) are complete f-ery and totally messed up, but also very, very good. I can only imagine what he'll deliver in his latest novel.

Title: Messenger of Fear
Author: Michael Grant
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Publishing Date: September 23, 2014
Pages: 272

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.

I really liked Becca Fitzpatrick's Hush, Hush series (though I don't remember some of it, oops; it's been a while since I read the books), so I'm interested to see where this one goes!
