Title: Harbinger
Author: Sara Etienne
Publisher: Putnam BYR
Publish Date: February 2, 2012
Genre: YA, Mystery, Thriller
Pages: 320

When sixteen-year-old Faye arrives at Holbrook Academy, she doesn’t expect to find herself exactly where she needs to be. After years of strange waking visions and nightmares, her only comfort is the bones of dead animals, Faye is afraid she’s going crazy. Fast.

But her first night at Holbrook, she feels strangely connected to the school and the island it sits on, like she’s come home. She’s even made her first real friends, but odd things keep happening to them. Every morning they wake on the floors of their dorm rooms with their hands stained red.

Faye knows she’s the reason, but what does it all mean? The handsome Kel tries to help her unravel the mystery, but Faye is certain she can’t trust him; in fact, he may be trying to kill her—and the rest of the world too.
Ok, we all know I love me some dark books, and let's be honest - it doesn't get much better than some crazy chick loving dead animal bones. Am I right? Right. Harbinger sounds deliciously twisted in the best possible way. I love stories set in academies and remote locations, and it's my true hope that this one is as fast-paced and edgy as they say because it could very well be a great book! What do you think, and what are you waiting on this week?

  15. it doesn't get much better than some crazy chick loving dead animal bones. LOL, Melissa! You are totally right! I love the cover with the red blind fold and her hair all fluttering up behind her head. Although, I feel like her hands are strapped down to her body. Creepy, Creepy!! :D I heart CREEPY! (that may say something about me, but I choose to ignore it.)
