Strange changes are taking place in Village. Once a utopian community that prided itself on its welcome to new strangers, Village will soon be closed to all outsiders. As one of the few people able to travel through the dangerous Forest, Matty must deliver the message of Village’s closing and try to convince Seer’s daughter to return with him before it’s too late. But Forest has become hostile to Matty as well, and he must risk everything to fight his way through it, armed only with an emerging power he cannot yet explain or understand.
This ebook includes a sample chapter of SON.

Definitely my least favorite book of the three. I felt Gathering Blue and The Giver had more to offer than The Messenger. Lowry is still a great author and brought the characters together well, however the book didn't capture me as the others did. Read full review

Wow, just wow. I really liked this book. I remember reading "The Giver" and "Gathering Blue" when I was a child. I didn't understand the books like I do now. I love this series. "Messenger" offers more of a follow up on past characters in "The Giver" and "Gathering Blue." Read full review
