MALICE was a excellent book. Prepare to be amazed. I had a dream that I was in MALICE and I met Seth with my friend, she FREAKED OUT ON ME when i told her! I like Kady because she is adventurous and sick and Seth he was cool but not clever at all. I also think its sad about luke.

A bit too long for me. The parts were it turned into a comic were good. My favorite character was Tatyana because she turns into a robotic tiger thingy and kills a huge robot thing.

This book is a great book and it really catches you out and it keeps your heart racing as the speed of the book is great. One of the best books I've read in a long time.

Review by Conor - Big Wood School
This book is rated 4 star

Malice is good book to read. I like how it is half comic and half book. It is supposed to be scary but I thought it was hardly scary at all. I found The Pickle King scarier than this. It is still quite good and finishes on a cliffhanger.

Review by Rehan - Rushcliffe School
This book is rated 5 star

I loved the book because of the cliffhanger at the end and it has made me want to read the next book Havoc.

Review by Karli - Bulwell Academy

I quite liked this book, but I couldn't really get into it. I found it rather boring in the middle.

Review by Hope - Long Eaton School

I really liked Malice, it was very exciting to read. It scared me a bit at the start but apart from that I really enjoyed it. I'm eager to read the next book which is called HAVOC.

not the best book ive ever read however it wasnt bad either i would only reccomend this book to certain people

Review by max - Ellis Guilford School
This book is rated 3 star

This book was not to my taste because the opening was quite boring so I could not get into it and I find when I can't get into a story I just can't carry on. It needs to be quite gripping to get me interested and if it's not I can't see any point in reading it.

Review by Georgina - Brunts Comprehensive School

I haven't read the book yet but it looks good fro the cover and the blurb.

Review by kurtis - Nottingham University Samworth Academy
This book is rated 4 star

Everyone's heard of Malice, but hardly anyone has actually seen it: a comic about a horrifying world of tricks and traps, overseen by the sinister master of ceremonies, Tall Jake. The story goes that the kids who go through Tall Jake's deadly trials are real kids, who've disappeared from the real world and turned up in the comic. But it's just an urban legend, right?

Malice is a really gripping story that always keeps you on edge. I love the fact that some of it is a comic book which really keeps you hooked. The story is very creative. It took a while to get into the action but overall really met my expectaions.

Review by jake - Alderman White School
This book is rated 3 star

I think that this book is ok, but I think that the idea of having a world in a comic book is a bit strange.

Review by Roderick - John Port School
This book is rated 3 star

This was an interesting mix of comic book and story book, which sadly did not really work for me. The story was good but I did not like the comic strips which I though interupted the flow of the story. I did, however, think that the plot was well writen.

Review by Michael - Ecclesbourne School
This book is rated 2 star

The book was slow to get into and it shouldn't have a comic half way into the story because then it isn't a book it's a bomic. DON'T READ IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Review by james - Ecclesbourne School

An excellent read and the comic really adds to the story.(I'm that excited I want to read the follow up).

Review by Rosie - Brunts Comprehensive School

Review by Kofi - Brunts Comprehensive School
This book is rated 5 star

This book is an eye-catching adventurous book. It is about a comic book called Malice where kids get trapped in. Sometimes they leave, sometimes they die. I can't wait to read the next book Havoc!

Review by Simran - The Kimberley School
This book is rated 4 star

Seth and Kady hear these rumours about Tall Jake but they don't believe. But when they witness something it's not so fake. Can you help them unravell the mystery? I liked this book because it was mysterious and strange. A great book.

Review by Adam - Carlton Le Willows Academy

I loved this book, it's so cool and scary. The only thing I didn't like about it was the ending because its a cliffhanger and it annoyed me.

Review by Amira - Chilwell School
This book is rated 5 star

MALICE... Prepare to read an amazing book, this madly-gripping-with-terror book, is just the thing for you if you are adventurous, but if you are VERY adventurous - like Seth, Malice is for you... For full effect, read in a big room with a twitchy light, alone. But careful, this book will suck you inside, don't be surprised if your friend disappears, leaving a blank comic book and ashes...

Review by Sajid - Chilwell School

Very good I think it's the best book in ages.

Review by Matthew - Chilwell School

I didn't like Malice cause of all the comic strips in it and i didn't like how it went. I thought it was boring and very boyish it is not my cup of tea!!!

Review by Teresa - John Port School
This book is rated 4 star

I really enjoyed this book. At first, I found it a bit dark and gruesome, and slightly intense for a children's book. Afterwards, I started to absolutely love it. The plotline and the characters are brilliant and so imaginative, and so thrilling and adventurous. I would definitely recommend this book to my friends, I liked it so much.

Review by Rachel - Brunts Comprehensive School

This book was a good book. I found the comic strips hard to read but very good. One person gets taken to Malice and his friends come to find him. In the end one of his friends escapes, but the others...

Review by Abbie - Brunts Comprehensive School

It is a good book if you are into comic books. I enjoyed it but not as much as I thought I would. I like the part when the 2 boys get on the train and try to get out.

Review by Darcy - Brunts Comprehensive School
This book is rated 1 star

This book is not easy to get into and is quite boring at the beginning. This book is also very big so if are not a big reader it is best to stay away and some readers may find some parts scary. It is not a easy read.

Review by John - Brunts Comprehensive School

I enjoyed this book but I didn't get the comic strip in the middle. The ending was really good and I didn't see it coming.

Review by Adam - Brunts Comprehensive School

WOW what a great book .The best part of the book was if you said Tall Jake 6 times he would take you to malice world. If it was up to me I would read it again and again !

Malice is an very unusual book but it is thrilling at the same time. I dont't usualy read horror stories, but I loved this one.

Review by Rachel - John Port School
This book is rated 5 star

Malice is a brilliant story that makes you want to read more. It brings you into the atmosphere of the book and it feels real. It is quite scary. I can't believe the boy in the book called Luke died. The next book which continues the story is called 'Havoc' which I will read soon.

This book is great. It is exciting all the way through, and makes you sit on the edge of the seat. The story seems very realistic, even though it can't be real. I really enjoyed it from cover to cover.

I really like this book it was good how it goes from Malice to the real world then comic in the middle.But for Seth it's hard to understand.

I thought it was a good book, a bit weird and boring at times - but it was still good. There were good characters in it. It was a good adventure that Seth went on.

It's a really gripping book and right from the start I enjoyed it! The front cover is really eye catching and I think that if they make these books into a series it would be excellent. It's full of suspense, mystery and adventure on each page I just couldnt put it down!

I didn't get to read all of this book but these are my thoughts so far. So far it has been kind of spooky. I chose this book to read because of the cover. There are comic books in here too as well as the actual story. More suited to boys. Wasn't my kind of book .

A great book about a comic named malice and there is a rumour that the comic takes children at the middle of the night. They dont belive it but then a friend of their goes missing then they think otherwise.

Review by Alec - Fernwood School
This book is rated 5 star

This book is a really good book.If you like to have a book that catches you in the moment, and gets your heart racing, this is brilliant. It all starts with a comic book and a tale about a man called tall Jake. The saying is call upon tall Jake six times and you will get taken to the world of Malice. But for all the kids that have gone in,have never come back!

Review by Mia - Chilwell School
