SPOILERS: Some small spoilers, nothing big. This is the third book in the series. In this review I reference story lines in the first two books. If you have not read THE GIVER and Gathering Blue this review will contain spoilers.
Messenger is the continuing story of Matty and the blind man, both characters we met in Gathering Blue. The Village in Messenger is different from any we have experienced yet, people actually have choices and freedom, there is kindness and fair treatment. It is known as a place oppressed people can come to.
But things have changed, the village is being closed, the forest surrounding the village seems to be alive with a malevolent influence, in Matty’s last trip through the forest to post notices and deliver a special message, he needs to use his power in a way he never expected.
In this world everyone has a unique power, some gift, most are benevolent, but one with an evil gift has crept in. If I say anything more it will most likely give away the whole thing. I don’t like doing that so I will stop now.
Once aqain, I am of the opinion if you liked the two previous books you will like this one also.
