Part novel/part graphic novel, Chris Wooding’s Malice tells the tale of a Land Called Malice (am I the only one who hears a Jam song all of sudden?) that exists in the page of a comic book. Per urban legend, if you call upon a mysterious figure named Tall Jake, he’ll take you to Malice, but beware – most kids never leave. Created by British YA fantasy author Chris (Poison, The Haunting of Alaizabel Cray, Storm Thief, more) Wooding, Malice is an intriguing blend of fiction and comic book (the latter illustrated by up-and-coming illustrator Dan Chernett).
Published by Scholastic Books, the 380-page book is the first half of a duology (the second half, Havoc, is set for release next year) centers on the adventures of Seth and Kady, two kids who find themselves trapped in the frightening world of Malice after a friend of theirs goes missing.
