I was twelve when it happened. I felt like the happiest girl in the world back then. My name was Willa Merciful, though I’ve changed it now.

Born into a doomsday cult, young Willa feels privileged to be one of the special people chosen to survive Judgement Day. She’s part of one big, devoted family living in an isolated commune led by the charismatic Messenger of God, Father Merciful.

But one day, Father Merciful asks his followers to drink special medicine to help them survive Judgement Day. As she is drifting into unconsciousness, Willa sees a hurt little boy asking for help. When Willa wakes, she realises that life on the commune isn’t as safe as she once thought, and not everyone in the family can be trusted…

Messenger can be read as book 3.5 in the Mary Hades series, or enjoyed as a standalone story.
