‘Be afraid … this book gave me chill after chill’ – R. L. Stine
“Who are you?”
That was the first question I asked the boy in front of me. The pale, solemn young man in the black coat with small silver skulls for buttons.
But he didn’t answer it. Instead he answered the question I never asked, but which was nevertheless what I really wanted to know.
Am I dead?
No, not dead, he told me.
But surely not quite alive, either. How could I be?
I remembered my name – Mara. But, standing in that ghostly place, still shuddering at the memory of the creeping yellow mist that had awoken me in that strange, silent land, I could recall nothing else about myself.
The Messenger sees the darkness in young hearts. 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.

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 and The Unwanteds series
“Mesmerizing, horrifying, and deeply thought-provoking.” — Carrie Ryan, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Forest of Hands and Teeth
