Messenger of Fear
Grant, the author of the Gone and BZRK series, writes a haunting tale about the terrible choices people make in life. Mara is terror-stricken when she wakes up in a field of dead grass and finds herself with a strange boy, the Messenger of Fear. Dressed in black and displaying frightening supernatural powers, he tells Mara that she has become his apprentice and together they will bring justice to evildoers. The Messenger offers the wicked a simple game of life and death. If they win, they go free, but if they lose, they'll end up living their greatest fear. Either way, their sanity will be challenged.
