    One thought on “The Messenger”

    1. The Messenger's Handbook is a YA romantic time travel thriller. It's inspired by all the fabulous YA romance adventure/thrillers already out there, as well as Last of the Mohicans, the movie, directed by Michael Mann. I wanted to create a fierce, dangerous love story set during the confines of a real War. I wanted my sixteen year old heroine, Madeline, to arc over the course of the story. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.The Messenger's Handbook: What if you discovered [...]

    2. The best way for be to describe how I felt after reading this book would be that I felt let down.The description of the book sounded so interesting, because I love the idea of time travel and I love romance! At first, I was really enjoying the book. Well, I enjoyed the prologue. It was interesting, had action, and it had mystery. However, I was pretty bored after the prologue. I couldn't really connect with the main character, Madeline. Despite that, I decided to keep reading, because I really w [...]

    3. A big thank you to the First Reads Program.I cannot believe I won the giveaway! I would like to thank Pamela for the book and lovely message of congratulations. Thank you so much Pamela.So where to begin? This book tells the story of Madeline, a 16 year old girl who falls in love with a hundreds of years old boy named Samuel.I didn't really find Madeline to be a convincing and appealing character. I found her to be a bit of a scary cat who faints every time she's off the ground by a few feet. N [...]

    4. [Full disclosure: I requested and received a free ebook through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.]If I had to describe The Messenger in one word it would be ‘disappointing.’The prologue started off promisingly enough, with a girl (obviously the main character) running through the woods in a panic. Okay, that sounds cool; let’s get on with the main event! My excitement dampened throughout the first few chapters because of the pretty stereotypical “main character who has lost her [...]

    5. First of all, that cover is literally to die for. One of my favorites! Reminds me a bit of Entwined. Gorgeous but it draws you in! Very lovely.Now for the innards! This was a very well rounded book. That may not sound like a compliment but let me explain why I think it is. First of all the plot is really interesting. The whole soul mate thing was an added twist that I didn’t even think about while reading and was quite pleased as the relationship between Samuel and Madeline grows. It’s very [...]

    6. Read This Book If…:…you love time-traveling stories!…you have a guilty pleasure for historical romances.…diverse stories involving race and racism resonate with you.…you enjoy books that leave you hanging in suspense until the very last page.I really enjoy time traveling books! I just wish I read more of them. The Messenger combines my interest in time-travel with historical fiction, and I really love that combination because there is always that major predicament: is the main characte [...]

    7. You can read this review on my blog onlectus/2012/07/ How to start reviewing a book you don’t like? There, I said it from the beginning so you don’t have to read through the end to find that out.The prologue starts promising, with Madeline (or Abigail) running in the forest trying to reach a spot that would take her time traveling. I just got excited with this opening to become quickly bored with the rest of the book.Thanks to a “lucky” accident, Madeline travels 300 years back in time. [...]

    8. I had both likes and dislikes in this book. And even some loves. Let me start out by saying the author is a really strong writer. She knows how to keep a reader's attention, and the characters were beyond excellent. I loved the creepiness of Malachi. This is a promising start to the series. SPOILER ALERTHowever, I didn't think there was enough information on the Messengers, and I had so many questions as I read. Who were they supposed to give messages to? Who chose who they were supposed to give [...]

    9. Madeline travels back in time to King Philip’s War in Rhode Island in 1675. There she learns she is a Messenger, someone who is able to carry messages through time and trains to be a warrior. She also learns she has a soul mate named Jamie, oops, I means Samuel. Yes, sounds like a YA Outlander, doesn’t it? I preferred it to Outlander!The time period is not one that I have read about before. Samuel is half- Native American which adds to the suspense. The author does not rush into the romance [...]

    10. I would like to thank AToMR Blog Tours for allowing me to read this book and be a part of the tour. I have to say that I love time traveling books. This book held me captive because not only did it have time traveling in it but it had Native American history in it. I love the combination of both.Madeline and her mother are in a car accident and Madelines mother has disappeared. When everything settles Madeline is given a book that her mother has passed down to her. In the book she reads about fa [...]

    11. This isn't the kind of book I would normally go for and the cover actually put me off, It was going for free so I thought I would give it a chance. I am so glad I did, The story of the book was brilliant. I could not put it down. I loved Madeline, she was intriguing and funny and I enjoyed her story, Samuel I wanted to stick my hands in and grab him by the breeches and pull him out, I loved him, he was my kind of dream man. I finished this book at 4am and went straight on to to see if there was [...]

    12. An fun story about facing your fears, love and time travel. In time travel books, it is key to get down the story about time traveling and Ms. DuMond does it right. She crafted a rich and detailed story that stands apart from others. While Madeline is not the most lovable character at first, as she begins to experience more in the past and grows, the more you care for her. I gotta say, Samuel is a hunk! I really enjoyed this book! Can't wait to read what happens next.

    13. All I can say is the 2nd book better be coming and SOON!I fell totally in LOVE with this book! The writing was great, not a literary masterpiece, but who wants that? Those are boring!Great Love story, great time-traveling story, great mixing of genres! I totally LOVED it!Completely recommend adventerous YA readers to enjoy this book!

    14. Wonderful read for all YA paranormal/time travel fans!The description was so vivid I saw the story as a film in my head the entire time.Highly recommended.

He pulled me to him and said, ‘Madeline. I do not care where you are from—the future, the past, a star in the sky. I will love you here, now. I do not care what people think. I will love you in the past. I will love you in the future. I will love you, forever, Madeline.’ And he [...]

    16. Netgalley. Thank you for a copy of this book.The Messenger is a fairly short book. It is about one hundred pages. A bit more than that. Typically, I don't read short stories, but I guess that this one counts as one. Anyway, I believe The Messenger fits the best in YA Historical Fiction. But anyway, let's talk a bit more about The Messenger.I have to say that even though The Messenger is short, it is slow. It is really slow, and I couldn't really get into it for the most part. There is quite a nu [...]

    17. The Messenger by Pamela DuMond is the perfect mixture of so many different elements. With time-travel you get a bit of historical fiction mixed with present day, but there is also romance, mystery and a little action. After an accident, Madeline wakes up in colonial Rhode Island in 1675, and in the middle of a war between the colonist and the Native Americans. She discovers that in this time she is known as Abigail. Since Madeline is from the future, it does make for a bit of awkward, sometimes [...]

    18. angreadsAs an Outlander fan, the description immediately caught my attention. I'm a huge fan of history, so the fact this was a time traveling book about actual historical events got me really excited. This was a very good YA/historical fantasy book. I didn't like Madeline for most of the book. I found her to be whiny, whimpy, and hateful. She seemed to have a serious dislike for rich people. I get it, we are all jealous of those who have more money than us, but her best friend was rich! Also, I [...]

    19. I really wish I could give this book the stars that the story itself deserves, but the execution and lack of a proper editor hinder me from doing so. If you are a fan of My Name is Memory, then you will definitely like the premise of The Messenger's Handbook. But you'll also find yourself, like me, comparing the two, which isn't good. MNiM is executed flawlessly aside from the still lacking sequel. Brashares' debut adult novel is well composed, precisely edited, and told with the fewest inconsis [...]

    21. Awesome! Highly recommendedI have enjoyed Pamela DuMond's humorous mystery series, but while they are well written, they do not emphasize the high quality of writing that I found to stand out in this novel. For the most part, I have turned away from "darker" novels in the last few years, but as a DuMond fan, I had to try this one and luckily for me, I won a copy of the ebook from the author! The realistic depiction of social inequities, political manipulations, and harsh realities of earlier tim [...]

    22. This young adult novel is strong on romance. Unlike most romance novels that are slow and rudderless, this book has a fast pace that employs a lot of thriller elements to keep the main plot moving. I especially loved the historical setting of 1675 as a backdrop. It’s a time of superstitions and blind faith among a group of colonists rigid in their ways and beliefs. In their eyes, almost everything is seen as witchcraft. And they wouldn’t hesitate to hang a teen girl who acted “strange.”I [...]

    23. Like some other reviewers indicated, I really enjoyed the premise of this story - the plot was a lot of fun and benefited from some unique ideas. The biggest detractor was a lack of thorough editing. The writing was solid and the story was fun, but really needed a good editor to clean up some basic grammar and punctuation issues. That having been said, I love time travel novels - I've always had a fascination with the past and any time a story can weave an ancestral mystery into a present day st [...]

    24. The major problems I had with The Messenger involved the writing. First and foremost, who even thinks it is okay to use texting abbreviations in narration? I saw "WTH?" - not as dialogue (which isn't really okay either), not as a text/email/etc - AS NARRATION. No. Just no.I also didn't like the main character. She came off as super immature, very whiny, and overall it wasn't enjoyable being in her head.And, stereotypical mean girls. Not to mention the summary on is completely different from the [...]

    25. Time travel is tops on my short list of wishes. While I would not wish to live through colonial times, Madeline/Abigail's culture shock was entertaining. The book was vivid with imagery and detail. I felt like towards the end, I knew how most of the characters were going to end up was still fun finding out how they got there. The book read like a movie in my mind. I could see one being made, after all, the author has experience with Erin Brokovich.

    26. When Madeline is kicked out of her regular life, she grows by leaps and bounds and she becomes stronger and more real to me. I really liked the last 15 or chapters when the story really began to move. And like all romantics, I love the idea of an everlasting soul mate and the wisdom to love the best we can in this life we're now in. There's a great setup for more

    28. What a great book! I like how the story has been told and the way things are described. Pamela's humor definitely spice up the story. To me, it's more like watching a movie than reading a book. Madeline is a real fighter, Samuel is a real lover and Angeni is a real caretaker. Malachi, is really evil!

    29. Colonial American setting, strong female protagonist, adventure, romance and fantasy elements? Yes, please! DuMond's time-travel romance has everything I enjoy in my favorite genre. I even enjoy Madeline's contemporary voice in the historical setting, which the structure demands. A strong opening to a promising series.

    30. I love this book. It was touching and adventurous. It is YA book and yet I never felt like it had been written for just YA. I was totally wrapped up in Madeline and Samuel. I am happy it is book 1, because I want to know what happens next. Time travel and romance. Beautiful combination.
