Overview
The Message worth dying for . . .

The government tells fifteen-year-old Simon Clay everything he needs to know. Except what really happened to his mom. And why no one can go out at night. And why the Darkness is so dangerous.

By day, Simon pushes against every boundary there is. And by night, secret visitors and hidden messages make him question everything his life entails.

There’s a truth out there to be discovered, a truth the government will stop at nothing to stamp out. Join Simon and the Messengers as they risk their lives to protect it.

Book one of The Messengers Series. 


Praise for The Messengers: Discovered

“In a trend that will surely be replicated many times but never perfected in the same way, Lisa Clark has combined heady Christian theology and a dystopian YA thriller for middle-grade readers. Simon is the son of a secretive—but loving—father who discovers that the Darkness (the nameless fear that his community of rules and order pins everything on) is actually the message of the Gospel. Doled out in small but potent doses, the Message is sweet like honey to all who hear it in this debut thriller that is appropriate for children probably as young as ten. Lisa Clark's writing is tightly effective, but the heart with which she deals with the theology is light and jubilant. Young readers will love the rebellion against the authorities, while parents will delight in handing their children a book that not only encourages sharing their faith—even in the worst circumstances—but also embraces the importance of family, love, and friendship. The first of a series, I have no doubt that Clark's writing will quickly take this book to the top of the growing YA inspirational genre.”
—Colleen Oakes, Author of the bestselling Queen of Hearts Saga


“There are writers, and there are artists. Lisa Clark is both. Her storytelling voice is compelling and consistent—a magical combination not easily achieved in first novels—and her venture into dystopian fiction serves only to make clear the certain and enduring reality of Christ and His church. If The Messengers: Discovered is any indication, then this series is gearing up to be one of my favorites.”
—Katie Schuermann, Author of the Anthems of Zion series and Pew Sisters


“Lisa Clark's Discovered adds to the growing genre of juvenile dystopian literature a well-written first installment in The Messengers series. In Simon Clay's story, both young and young at heart will be drawn into a story of renewal amid adversity, courage in the face of resistance. I recommend this book and look forward to the next installment.”
—Jeff Alexander, Pastor, Mount Olive Lutheran Church


“Lisa Clark writes in a way that we will sit up and take notice that the world around us isn't quite the way it's supposed to be. We begin to find ourselves in the story of Simon, of Jonathan, of Charity, of Zeke. We are reminded that each of us has a message worth dying for.

“Engaging characters, a fascinating dystopia, and a truly worthwhile message. When I turned the last page, I instantly thought of three people to share it with!”
—Heidi Goehmann, Writer
