Messenger (The Giver Quartet #3) by Lois Lowry, Book Review
Trouble is brewing in Village. Once a utopian community that welcomed strangers, Village will soon be cut off to all outsiders. As one of the few able to traverse the forbidding Forest, Matty must deliver the message of Village’s closing and try to convince Seer’s daughter Kira to return with him before it’s too late. But Forest is now hostile to Matty, too, and he must risk everything to fight his way through it. Messenger is the masterful third novel in Lois Lowry’s Giver Quartet, which includes The Giver, Gathering Blue, and Son—all newly designed!
So books one and two finally come together in book three! I was really bothered that book two didn't provide the answers I sought from book one, but The Messenger answers some of them! I am hopeful that book four answers the rest. I have to say that I really loved Matty's character. He was so sweet, kind, loving and truly one of a kind. I enjoyed learning more about Kira and The Seer, as well as Leader. If you haven't tried The Giver series yet, I definitely recommend it!
You can pick up your own copy via Amazon.
