Did you think Jumanji was the bomb? Did you think Never Ending Story was practically perfect in every way? Yeah, me too. Well, Malice is a hybrid of the two.

I will not recap the description, you’re welcome. But know this. Malice’s opening is beyond brilliant. It’s enchanting, arresting, pure funivity at its finest. Malice is completely immersive. As close as you can get to a movie experience, IMO. A total page-turner. Unputdownable. Did I mention that I really liked this tome? Sometimes I’m not...more

I never thought a book aimed at such a young audience could be as dark, smart and exciting as Malice. Combining elements of both the comic and novel mediums, Malice thrusts us into the sinister world of the evil comic; a place where nothing is as it seems.

The book opens with a very Jumanji-like scene where a guy tries to impress a girl he has a crush on with a neat, but somehow creepy object he's found. Here it's Malice, a creepy comic that details the trials of children being chased, maimed and...more

I'll admit the cover is what drew me to the book but I bought and read it because I had absolutely loved Poison, one of the author's other novels.

I'll have to say Malice did not disappoint. It was engaging, interesting, and it even took me by surprise once or twice. My only beef with it is that for me it's slightly difficult to tell exactly what's going on in the comic only scenes. But that could be just a me thing. Other than that, I had no complaints. It was a great read through and through a...more

Recommends it for: EVERYONE!
I cannot tell you how fantastic this teen read is. I LOVED it - was totally creeped out, couldn't put it down, can't wait to tell all my students to read it. I can barely wait for the sequel.

Part graphic novel - part all out teen terror, this book has something for everyone. My favorite part is knowing that there are whole sections of Malice we have yet to explore! Havoc is coming, and I wish I were a part of it!

As young adult books go, Malice's plot line is fantastic. Mixing the urban legends we all grew up with (ours was Bloody Mary in the bathroom mirror) and the fantasy world of a comic book. Wooding does a good job of fleshing out the alternate reality, making it feel real and threatening. And integrating the graphical novel with the written is a superb change of pace, although I wanted more quality from the comic panels that felt rushed and, sometimes, difficult to discern. I'm guessing the qualit...more

This book was really adorable and I love the format of the half novel half comic style. It isn't particularly stimulating to me as an adult, but if I was a kid I would love it.

Cuando el río suena...
Como nadie experimenta en cabeza ajena, Luke decide probar suerte con el misterioso cómic en cuyas páginas aparecen niños... Chicos que también, por alguna extraña razón, son reportados como desaparecidos. Y él no piensa quedarse con las ganas así que invoca a Jack el largo y días después desaparece.

Los verdaderos amigos...
Seth supo que Luke estaba actuando raro, pero el día que habían quedado de verse para discutir su extraño comportamiento, que tenía relación con Malice,...more

So scary and so much fun!

Remember when we would dare each other at sleep-overs to look into a mirror in the dark and say "Bloody Mary" three times? Well, such is the urban legend of Tall Jake in Malice.

Imaginative, suspenseful, original, exciting, and, yes, a wee bit scary!

I really enjoyed Chris Wooding's Malice, a story about an underground comic book named Malice and an urban legend called Tall Jake. All the kids have heard about Malice and Tall Jake, but few took the journey to the comic book...more
Krista Stevens
Loved this series. Very dark and scary (ok - for me who does not like any horror, but also thought it would be better for Grade 8 and above. I was surprised to see in a review a Grade 5 student reading this, but I could be over-reacting). An alternate world exists in the dark comic of Malice and kids keep disappearing into it. It's up to Seth and Kady to try and do something about it, but this journey may be more than they can handle. Great, tight writing and characterization (though the bad are...more

First of all I have to say that the cover of this book is startlingly creepy. It’s bold red with the title and an antagonist in eye-catching relief. I love it! I’ve traced the lines of that character (Tall Jake) a hundred times while reading it!

The description on the back cover pretty well sums up the plot of this YA horror novel. It says: “Once you get into the story, there’s no way out.” Well, the truth couldn’t be any plainer. Malice is the name of a comic book but it’s also the name of the p...more

It took me almost a week to finish this book--but that's only because my 5th grade daughter kept sneaking it away from me and when we took a car trip with friends, the 5th grade son of my friend kept sneaking it away from her. Of course the flashy 3-D cover caught their eyes right away but it was the inside that hooked them. This book starts right out so creepy and mysterious that it pulls you right in. The mystery of the comic book featuring kids from missing children flyers and the chant to ha...more

Have you seen the film "The Ring?" Do you remember summoning "Bloody Mary" at sleep-overs? Well this hybrid horror genre graphic novel is about a mysterious underground comic book that is obtained by curious and adventurous teens who disappear after reading it. When one of the boys disappears, his friends find him in the pages of the next comic. Hoping to help him come back, they search for him by invoking the magic chant. There are dangers lurking on either side of the world- on the comic pages...more

Malice is basically a bout a horror comic that is entirely real. Do the ritual, say the chant and you'll find yourself inside it.
We're your only goal is to survive and escape.

I don't know how he did it but Chris Wooding managed to write my favourite book of all time. It was uncharacteristically dark for s middle grade novel and i loved it. I loved the whole world he created that I could get lost in forever. He had me hooked from the first chapter. Especially with all the little graphic element...more
Stephanie
Wow. A very creative premise--and well executed, too! Minus one star for the graphic panels of the story. They were hard to see and therefore confusing, and a bit ridiculous sometimes with the ugly creatures, in my opinion (I'm thinking particularly of the last creature in the shrine).

However, aside from this, Wooding has created a unique story that is just frightening enough to scare you, but not scary enough to put me off (I have a low tolerance for horror).

The book is also notable for its de...more

THIS IS THE BEST BOOK EVER. malice is about a legendary comic that says if you burn cat hair your hair a tear drop a black feather and a twig and chant TALL JAKE COME AND GET ME 6 times Tall Jake the guy on the cover he will take you to malice but only when your alone. this book gave me a nightmare that i was in malice and fell in to one of tall Jakes traps.I would recommend this book to anyone that likes horror.this book has a equal called havoc i look forward to reading this book. this book is...more
Drake
A well written book with great events. Great concept of part novel part comic book. This book will keep you turning the pages and you won't want to put this book down. Overall this book is a great story for people who like new books. The only problem that some of the comic book section is not clear on what is exactly happening but you get the main idea. With that minor problem the book will be a great read for young adults.


Once Luke disappears and everyone expects he ran away from home Seth know...more

i loved this book, but i wouldnt say that this is my top 10 books. i felt ( at times ) the author put to much detail into the much into the book about one topic which made it a lil boring. though dont get me wrong i love details.

Recommends it for: Last Apprentice and Neil Gaiman fans
Super suspenseful. Kind of _Last Apprentice_ meets _Coraline_. Uncanny at it's best. Loads of boy appeal.

Very dark, full of actual kids dying in a sort of parallel world...and yet, there is a decided lack of blood and guts. They are alive and then they are not without graphic detail. It's a sanitized death that somehow makes it all the scarier. The language is rather young (ie- not too many touch vocabulary words) but the subject matter is older.

My only complaint is the art. Sometimes it was har...more
Raymond
Overall i greatly enjoyed the book, it was interesting and entertaining and had a lot of action. The book is about a comic book that comes to life once the character Luke is sucked into it, his friends soon join him and they go on an insane adventure through the comic book. "The books were legends and tales, stories from all over the Realm" that shows that they went on a wild adventure, the book had a lot of action and was easily enjoyable.

"Malice" is the sort of book that leaves you on a cliff, where you only have one foot on the cliff and the other outside it!

I've had Malice on my shelf for 3 years now, and I finally picked it up for BookTube A Thon! I'm so happy I did because this book was so so good! I feel so sad that none of my BookTube friends on GoodReads have read it! They definitely should!

I started this book, and it gave me a sense of some sort of Middle grade story. It took about a hundred pages to get me really hooked...more
Tasha Robinson
Interesting concept—a kids' horror adventure about an evil comic book that draws kids in, traps them, and often kills them—and the book itself is part novel, part comic, with much of the buildup written out in prose, and the action scenes more often illustrated via comics panels. The problem is that both halves feel a little amateurish—the comics are sketchy, and it can be hard to tell what's going on, or to tell the generic-looking characters apart, while the prose is pretty basic. The villains...more
Kenzie
This book is so captivating! Ironically, it REALLY pulls you in and makes you feel like you are a true part of its world! I've never read anything like it, and I absolutely loved it! Admittedly, I was truly creeped out by the first chapter. Of course, it didn't help that my lights flickered just a minute after it said that in the book (Not kidding)! But once I gained control of myself and the plot started laying out, I loved the book and couldn't put it down! Even though it did kind of scare me...more

I'll admit, when I found this book at the library I was really hesitant to pick it up and take it home. The cover was startlingly eerie, and while I do enjoy comics from time to time, I wasn't sure if this comic-book crossover hold my interest.

I decided to bring it home anyways.

O.M.G.

I couldn't put this down. I devoured it - finding myself immersed in the world that is Malice. I was on the edge of my seat to find out who was going to survive, who would make it out, what did the rest of this fasc...more

I borrowed this for my son to read but he didn't want to. The first few chapters were a bit creepy and it takes a while to pull you into the story. Next up is Havoc!
Shane Harcombe
A great book (along with its sequel Havoc), that had me gripped right from the start. I loved the mix of novel and graphic novel, used to differentiate between our world and the world of Malice. I also like that the graphic novel element can encourage reluctant readers. Every kid I've given this book to has loved it (so far).

The character of Tall Jake was suitably chilling and reminiscent of the stories we used to tell ourselves as kids and the adventure was great. My only downside was that I wa...more
Bella
Great book. It scared the wits out of me and I slept with brothers for a couple of nights so I would feel safe. After all, Tall Jake takes you when your alone. Really, I still am not over it. Right now, I need to read Havoc or else I'll worry myself to death. One thing against this book. In the first few chapters your with Luke in Heather, and next thing you know, you with a dude called Seth (who is hanging off a cliff) and a girl named Kady (who obviously is trying to help Seth). Anyway, if you...more
Lily
CREEPY AND DARK! I couldn't stop reading this book. The plot is incredibly engaging, the characters are lovable, and Tall Jake is SCARE-EE. Throughout the story, I had questions like, "what IS Malice?" "Where is it?" "What do these bad people want with these kids?" "WHY DO KIDS HAVE TO DIE THIS WAY?!" and "is this book going to have a happy ending...?"

Gosh I loved this story, and I love how it still remains mysterious and unknown even after finishing the whole thing. I'm definitely going to read...more

Interesting book. Definitely worth the read.
