Messenger is the masterful third novel in the Giver Quartet, which began with the dystopian bestseller The Giver.
Matty has lived in Village and flourished under the guidance of Seer, a blind man known for his special sight. Village was once a place that welcomed newcomers and offered hope and homes to people fleeing poverty and cruelty. But something sinister has seeped into Village, and the people have voted to close it to outsiders. All along, Matty has been invaluable, carrying information between Village and other communities, hoping to earn the name of Messenger. Now he must make one last journey through the treacherous Forest to spread the message of Village's closing and convince Kira, Seer's Daughter, to return with him. Matty's only weapon against his increasingly dangerous surroundings is a secret power he discovers within himself.
