Chris Wooding Malice
This is one of my favourite books so far..........
I have been lucky enough to get my hands on a finished copy of this book and it is really cool. The front cover has a great 3D effect, as one the characters of the book (Tall Jake) emerges from the cover making it stand out. Also what makes this book ground-breaking is that it is part-novel, part-comic which really works well with this story.
Again Chris Wooding has delivered a refreshing style of writing and never ceases to amaze me. He writes with such vigour covering dark characters and gripping sub-plots. I was gripped from beginning to end and was disappointed when I finished the book; I wanted to read the sequel straight away. However "Havoc" is advertised as coming soon but I'm not sure the exact date as of yet.
This book gets five out five well worth reading and owning a copy.
Everyone's heard of it, but nobody's read it... Seth and Kady have heard all the stories about MALICE - a secret comic about a strange and awful world full of traps and tricks, overseen by a sinister master of ceremonies, Tall Jake. But if rumours are to be believed, the children in this comic are real...
This book will be published by Scholastic on the 2 Feb 2009
