Messenger is a extension of Gathering Blue. Messenger is from Matty's view. After he leaves Kiras village he finds his way to another town called Village. In Village he finds a home with the blindman named Seer and is tamed by all the townspeople. As he grows he begans delivering messages for anyone who may need to contact someone out of village. Matty is sent on a very dangerous trip back to his original village to get Kira and bring her back to Village.
The end of the book takes a pretty unexpected twist. It was pretty good, just not quite as good as Gathering Blue and The Giver. If your a Louis Lowrey fan I would defently recomend you read it.
