Review: The Messenger

User Review  - Goodreads

Small book - 4 1/2 by 7 with only 140 pages. Kind of creepy reading about the dark shadows that follow Manny around while he is searching for Ariel. Good reminder of how we are either on God's side or the dark side. Can't have it both ways. Read full review
