He carried messages for [the people]. It was his job. He thought that when it came time to be assigned his true name, Messenger would be the choice. He liked the sound of it and looked forward to taking that title.
But this evening Matty was not carrying or collecting a message.... He headed to a clearing he knew of, a place that lay just beyond a thick stand of bristly pines.... He needed privacy for this things he was discovering about himself: a place to test it in secret, to weigh his own fear for what it meant.
Six years earlier, Matty had come to Village as a scrappy and devious little boy. Back then, he liked to call himself "the Fiercest of the Fierce," but since that time, Matty had grown almost into a man under the care of Seer, a blind man whose special sight had earned him the name. Now Matty hopes that he will soon be given his true name, and he hopes it will be Messenger. But strange changes are taking place in the Village. Once a utopian community that prided itself on its welcome to newcomers, Village will soon be closed to all outsiders. As one of the only people able to safely travel through the dangerous 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 has grown hostile to Matty, too, and he must risk everything to fight his way through it, armed only with an emerging power he cannot yet explain or understand.
