    1. ”Whether you know it or not, each one of you is at a critical turning point. If you are willing, there is still time to turn back from the terminal paths you have chosen. But Holbrook is your last chance. In the peace of these woods, we can lead you back to society, show you how to assimilate, nurture appropriate behavior. But if you turn your back on this final opportunity, the rest of the world will not be so kind.”Well, they weren’t exactly kind either. Faye Robson has been fighting wit [...]


    2. I I really have no idea of what to say to this. I had this whole speech planned out about how buried deep within Harbinger, there was a good book - great even - dying to come out, but clunky writing, choppy sentences and pandemic insta-love made sure it didn't. But that was before I read the last hundred pages of this and now I'm like Because I don't. I have seriously no idea of what happened here. This book was headed on a clear path to disaster and then it suddenly morphed into this confusing [...]


    3. I can honestly say that i tried hard to like this book I even tried to like Kel (i always tend to like the main guys so what? ) i tried, but i failed miserably. There's just nothing in the story that i can relate to. Their world was a messed up one, which made me feel like this one is a mixture of dystopian and paranormal I usually like those types but now errm i just feel awkward.I don't feel good after reading it. I feel weirded out and i admit that i did not exactly get the point or Harbinger [...]


    4. A dark, mysterious, disturbing, disturbing, disturbing, and beautifully written masterpiece. If you start it, you won't be able to finish it until you find out what the hell is going on at Holbrook Academy.



    5. I can't do it. DNF at only 14%.This book wasALL OVERTHE ACE!There was info dump, instalove, hell we even got a "I forced out the breath I didn't know I was holding" on PAGE ONE, people!"My main problem was that instead of being shown what was happening, we were very abruptly told what was happening and just forced to believe it. It was the reading equivalent to being splatted in the face with a giant water balloon full of piss. I'm not going to tell you not to read it, but YOU DO NOT WANT TO REA [...]


    6. 4 1/2 starsYes yes yes, "never judge a book by its cover," I know, I know. But can we just PLEASE sit here for a minute and appreciate that AMAZING artwork. LOOK AT IT. Sara Etienne's debut novel will knock your socks off. I'm serious. Etienne's mastery of storytelling and remarkable characters will not allow you to put this book down, and if you do, you're stuck wondering how it's all going to end. Faye is tricked by her parents into enrolling into Holbrook Academy which caters to students who [...]


    7. First, I want to start off and congratulate Etienne with creating a story world seemingly set in reality, but with the paranormal influences of Native American myth and tarot cards. I really liked the world she created. Now, I want to preface the rest of my review by beginning with a quote by John Gardner from his The Art of Fiction: Notes on the Craft for Young Writers, “It is this quality of the novel, its built in need to return and repeat, that forms the physical basis of the novel’s chi [...]


    8. I loved this book so much I don’t know where to start. Yes, I have said I loved a book before but you don’t understand I want to write the Harbinger sonnets, sing it love songs, and woo it until, Harbinger loves me back. Take another look at that cover, amazing right? You know how I am about covers! Harbinger totally lives up to its cover.Once I started reading Harbinger I became so enveloped in the world that Ms. Wilson Etienne created. (Like to the point of being late for picking my kid up [...]


    9. 1.5/5(c) andrea offermanna story along the lines of l.j. smith's deliciously creepy dark vision seriestually it reads as if the author wanted to pay homage to smith and wrote this book, to do so. a mysterious thriller, complete with eerie happenings in this school for 'special' children. plot:the protagonist, faye is sent to a reform school run by dr. mordoch, because she's different. each morning faye and her group (called "family") wake up with red-stained hands from the night before. wth happ [...]


    10. aaaaaaallllllrrrriiiiiiggggggggghhhhhhhhhttttttttyyyyy tttttthhhhhhhheeeeennnnnnnat didn't make a lot of sense which I mean that it made absolutely no sense at all.It was all this book meets that movie for some time, channelling degradation and bad people who think they're good and crazy people who think they're sane (maybe?) and it was very difficult to keep reading because that kind of stuff is never going to be a bucket of fun, but I was interested? Yeah, I guess I wanted to find out what wa [...]


    11. I don't even know where to start. This book was just plain weird. Sometimes weird can be a good thing. Other timest so much. Harbinger had an interesting hook with a unique idea for expressing it. But the onslaught of dystopian, oddity, & paranormal mashed into one 300-page book was just too much. Things happened at such a rapid pace that I was left struggling to keep up. The turning point came in such a way that I lost interest on the downslide to the climax, & the final 100 pages were [...]


    12. Me while reading this book: Every once in a while you come across that one book that looks/sounds so good that you just want to take it your bedroom and whisper naughty things to it seductively. Or maybe that's just me. Then that book pulls a Harbinger on you. Let me make this very clear, this isn't a review. This is a rant. Harbinger is fucking eerie and I mean that in a totally good way. I loved being kept in the dark about stained hands and weird designs on the floor. I loved wondering if Rit [...]


    13. As seen on Zombie Mommies.I really really wanted to like this one: Mind Games, Visions, Sleepwalking, A Boarding School, A Mystery, A Dark and Handsome Mysterious Boy? All the perfect ingredients for a great storyat fell flat like a homemade souffle.The main problem with Harbinger were too many lose ends. With thrillers, I am completely prepared for unanswered questions that compel me to turn the page, eager to find the answer. But with this one, when i finally got to the end, all the lose ends [...]


    14. 3.5 stars - Some spoilersHarbinger introduces us to Faye, a troubled sixteen year old who's parents enrol her at the newly opened Holbrook Academy. Holbrook Academy is a school for disturbed and unruly teenagers. Faye is distressed when she finds out her parents have betrayed her and abandoned her at Holbrook so she can get the 'help' she needs. From a young age, Faye has had strange and frightening visions of the sea. On top of that, Faye has never had any friends and is very much alone due to [...]


    15. Teenage Faye finds herself at the creepy Holbrook Academy where she struggles to maintain her sanity, while unraveling her true destiny. Not since the Grandmother in Flowers in the Attic has there been a villain so villainous as Holbrook's headmistress, Dr. Mordock. "Fear is an illusion," Faye repeats to herself as Holbrook's bone-chilling happenings go from strange to life-threatening. For the reader, Fear is *not* an illusion. Be afraid, be very afraid. Do not read this book during a hurricane [...]


    16. Couldn't get into this. Writing was annoying me with all the telling. "My sense of direction deserted me". And then the insta-love took the cake this time. The girl "met" the guy when they were on solitary confinement and spoke through the walls and at the end of a few paragraphs she was already thinking she would "lose him" when she was released. sigh. (Ana)


    17. A highly original, edge of your seat, page turner. Not for one second did I suspect how it would end--nice work Ms. Etienne. Keep those combat boot wearing kick ass girls coming and I'll keep reading.


    18. Well, this book isn't fire-worthy. But it's not shelf-worthy either, and it's not money-worthy, and it definitely isn't time-worthy. It was a senseless mess of narrative that kind of hurt me on the inside.This story is about Faye, a strange girl with odd waking visions and a fascination with dead things. That's what turned me on to this book; she seemed like an interesting character that I'd like to follow around. Well, it was tolerable, at least.Oh, and then the obligatory love interest. I have [...]


    19. I’m not even sure what to say about this other than wow. It definitely lived up to my expectations. Before you start this one make sure you have a good chunk of time set aside to read it in one go. I had to keep putting it down because that icky thing called life got in the way and I found myself wondering constantly when I could get back to it. It’s one of those books that sucks you in completely. Faye may be one of my favourite heroines so far in 2012; she’s flawed, in fact at times she [...]


    20. That was interesting…Ok so it took me a bit of time to sort through my thoughts on this book and I have finally decided. No wait I lied… no I’m sure (view spoiler)[I lied I have no idea what I’m talking about! > (hide spoiler)]Anyway, I had a hard time deciding whether I loved or loathed this book. I think I settled on loved because this book was just filled with awesomeness. So I came into this thinking it was another one of those camp for people with powers where a girl will fall in [...]


    21. 3.5 starsA gripping, psychological thriller that's hard to put down. This debut is as terrifying as it is fascinating. Sara did a masterful job at creating a story that will make the reader feel just as insane as her main character Faye. Getting inside the head of Faye made it hard to distinguish what was real and what was an figment of her imagination. I have to say, that really made for an interesting read, because it was impossible for me to figure out what was really going on. This is one of [...]


    22. You can find more reviews @BloodyBookaholicThis book is just plain weird. In a good way? I am still on the fence on that. I saw so many excellent reviews on the book, so I thought "ugh, maybe this book will be kick ass (even though the cover isn't my favorite)" but after reading it, I was more looking for the 3-4 star reviews, because to be completely honest I was confused for the most part of the story, with the story line and how the things, like the hallucinations, were taking place, and I ju [...]


    23. Harbinger is a book unlike any I have read. It was not at all what I expected and in this case that only made it better. It was creepy, suspenseful, and at times, confusing (but in a good way!)Holbrook Academy is a place for kids who need help. Some of them have mental issues, some have anger issues, some have issues with authority, and some have issues that they would rather keep hidden. Holbrook, however, does not plan on helping them. The headmaster of the school has a different agenda, one t [...]


    24. Harbinger had a lot of things going on. I mean a LOT. There were elements that were dystopian, paranormal, psychological thriller, or romance. Unfortunately these ideas were not strung together well and gave Harbinger a disorderly and confusing plot.Harbinger is set in a post apocalyptic type world, but because Faye is secluded in an institution type place, we only get hints at the dystopian world around her. This would be ok if the action was only in Holbrook Academy, but the story eventually s [...]


    25. 1.5, since I'm torn between 1 and 2.So . . . The main thought I had while reading this book was "What. The. Eff." Not at first, because at first I really tried to get into it. As the book progressed, though, it just got messier and messier and made less and less sense. Even at the ending, when things were supposedly "explained," I still had no idea what was going on or why I'd wasted my time. The whole story just feels sloppily put together. As the main character delves into the mystery of Holbr [...]


    26. Faye is going crazy, seeing things that aren’t there. Since she can remember, she’s had a weird connection to death and the ocean. When she is sent to Holbrook Academy to ‘get better’, everything only gets worse. Faye and her friends wake up every morning with blood on their hands, and mysterious symbols written on the floor. She knows it’s her causing this, but how? Working with her friend Kel, she starts to unravel an age old prophecy foretelling madness and death, and soon no one ca [...]



    27. Well this was an eerie read. The kind of eerie you get when watching Shutter Island. All through the book I was expecting monsters to claw through the ventilation, half-hidden eyes peering through the windows, children's laughter echoing in the distance.Sara Wilson Etienne sure knows how to set the mood. I think in this debut, that was her strong point, and what won me over in the end. She kept me flipping through the (digital) pages, wondering what was happening; if Faye was psychotic, or if sh [...]


    28. NOTE: This one actually got 3.5 starsHarbinger was a super creepy, darkly mysterious book with amazingly good writing that was also nothing like what I was expecting it to be. It definitely stood out from a lot of other YA fiction out there because it had such a unique and interesting plot twist-- which I'm not going to give away here, because I want you to be just as surprised and taken away as I was if you decide to read it! Faye has suffered from terrifying visions and nightmares ever since a [...]
