`Be afraid... this book gave me chill after chill' - R. L. Stine on Messenger of Fear. I wanted to touch the boy who was not to be touched. " The Messenger of Fear" exists to punish the wicked, to restore balance in a world where evil seems to be everywhere. He offers sinners one terrible choice: play... or pay? If you win the game, you can go free. But if you lose, you must live out your greatest fear. His assistant, Mara is still adjusting to her role. She must face the worst horrors of intolerance, cruelty and injustice: she, as much as any of the people "Messenger" pursues, is being punished. But Mara has secret feelings for "Messenger," and they're threatening to overpower her. As she learns more about his tragic past, she must make her own choice: how far will she go to gain her heart's desire? This enthralling sequel to "Messenger of Fear" promises just as many heart stopping moments as its predecessor. These books contain all the thrills and surprises that you know to expect from the "Man" who brought you the "Gone" series. Fans of Tom Hoyle's "Thirteen" will love this.
