While the world they live in is deteriorating, Faye is forced to move into Holbrook Academy, an isolated school meant to help “troubled kids”. Faye’s trouble is that she experiences very realistic visions that include the sea and waves coming for her and overtaking her. It’s interfering with her life and her dad takes her and abandons her at the school. The school isn’t what it seems and neither is the headmistress. Shortly after arriving at school the friends she is introduced to are swept up with her troubles as well. Stranger things start happening including a mysterious student that only Faye sees. Faye soon finds out that the schools outlying buildings are holding even more secrets. One part mystery with a lot of paranormal thrown in, Faye is trying to unravel it all. The beginning of the story started off a bit slow and I wasn’t quite sure where everything was going. The story throws you into their world without explanation. I found the fact that the world around them was dystopian to be just a side fact, it didn’t bear much importance on the story or the life they led at the school. The middle started to pick up speed and become more interesting. I liked the introduction of Kel and the mystery that surrounded him. The story doesn’t tell you too much about why the other kids are there, so you are left to wonder about that. As a few of them are major supporting characters, I wished that I would have known more. The last 50 pages was a disappointment for me. I was sad that this is where the story went. It felt like an easy way out, as if the story wasn’t planned out and this was the only way for the ending to be resolved. Reviewed by Jessica for Book Sake.

Words cannot adequately describe Harbinger because the book is an explosion of misleading statements and confusing events. The entire time I was reading it, I was attempting to sort out one clue from the next, constantly wavering between fiction and reality. Sara Wilson Etienne has crafted an incredible, phenomenal, and radically unique debut that will mess with your mind and open your eyes. It’s part disturbing – it takes place in some future world where cities are full of savagery and scarcity runs rampant – part sexy – Kel is mysterious and dangerous, but definitely has a side of yummy to him – and all-absorbing. Etienne’s storytelling has fast-paced moments, character depth, and a history that is as unpredictable as it is complex. From the very first page, readers will be taken by Faye, curious about Holbrook, and fearful of what the future holds. The creepy undertones, the nightmares, and looming unknown add this tension to the book that made me furiously turn the pages, desperate for more. The mystery behind Faye and her new Family’s blood-stained hands is ever evolving. One answer only leads to more questions and I was eager to know more. Harbinger is a bold debut from a hugely talented author. Each and every character has a purpose in the story and wow, is it quite the story! The twists are unexpected and the mystery ever-evolving. Readers will eat it up.
