Malice Book Review

Malice Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Oct 28, 2009
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

When his friend Luke disappears, Seth knows that it’s not your average runaway. Luke was taken by Tall Jake, the ruler of the comic book world, Malice. Kidzworld reviews Malice by Chris Wooding

Author: Chris Wooding

Have you ever heard of Bloody Mary or the Sandman? Well, now there’s someone new to be afraid ofTall Jake, the evil metal man inside the Malice comic books. Rumor has it that if you perform a certain ritual while saying “Tall Jake, take me away” six times, he’ll drag you into his world of mayhem and metal beasts.


Missing

Seth’s friend Luke thinks the legend of Tall Jake is just a rumor, so he performs the ritual for kicks. Two days later he goes missing. Seth and his friend Kady search Luke’s bedroom for clues. They find his copy of Malice, but the light-sensitive ink has left the pages blank.


Inside the Comic

Seth and Kady follow the clues to a dumpy comic book store, and, with a little trickery, manage to get their hands on another copy of Malice. They can’t believe what they find inside—Luke, terrified, running into a death trap. Could it be a coincidence that the character in the comic looks identical to Luke? There’s only one way to find out. Seth performs the ritual, eager to see what kind of dangers and adventures lay beyond this world.


At Home in Malice

Death is ready to snap its angry jaws at Seth the moment he enters Malice. Luckily he meets Justin, a teenager who explains to Seth that Malice is more than just a world of nightmares. Kids live there by choice, finding the freedom and dangers of this world more exciting than those of their own. Now Seth doesn’t know whether he wants to leave.


The Bottom Line

Malice will knock your socks off. It’s part novel, part comic book. The story is fast paced, well written and best of all…it’s going to be a series! Definitely grab a copy of Malice by Chris Wooding.

    (So, along with being a fanfiction of  The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time , this story is an attempt at a [character] x reader thing, with Duana representing the reader. It'll be Sheik x reader, but... well, you'll see how it works in the story. There'll be plenty of action and people-hitting to go 'round during it, and the buildup to the ship will be gradual. I promise that things that happen in parts 1-3 aren't necessarily terrible attempts at showing affection. I'm not sure how long it'll go, but it'll have at least ten parts of varying length. At the moment, I have four parts done, but I'll not be posting twice in a day. Feel free to voice any ideas or opinions through comments/PM! If you don't like it, I'd appreciate  constructive criticism , not a rant. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the story!) Part One A Man and a Lyre [Image courtesy of some random person on the Internet. Taken from Google Images.] Duana’s eyes snapped open. A forest. But her last memory was… of being cut into by a Thief's scimitar and falling… in the desert . Was this death? She grunted; attempted getting up. Failed. The nausea finally registered, and the trees spun about her vision. But she couldn’t go unconscious. The king’s forces could be anywhere. Duana would be easy pickings if she was unconscious and they happened to stumble upon her. A second attempt at rising succeeded, and she tightly gripped a tree, sagging against it as the spinning intensified, and she nearly vomited. Slowly, it faded, and she became alert again. She stood upright, looking around; scanning for signs of movement. Her sharp, red eyes at first saw nothing, then noticed a slight trembling of some undergrowth. Duana tensed, but knew she wouldn’t put up much of a fight--regardless of whether she actually fought or decided to run. Promptly, the swaying increased, and then the bushes parted… and a figure came into sight, heading straight towards Duana… ...with the red eye and tear on the navy blue tunic he wore. His eyes were also red, and his ears were pointed. The symbol was the symbol of Duana’s own race; a people trained in shadow and dedicated to protecting the royal family as well as their country, but who had failed miserably in it. Duana gasped in relief, releasing the tension. “I was so paranoid that you were someone working for Ganondorf….” The young man, a fellow Sheikah, tilted his head and frowned. “Ganondorf? He was exiled two decades ago.” “Wha…?” “Nabooru, Sage of Spirit, is now temporarily serving as the Gerudo queen until the next male is born. How do you not know this?” “I….” He peered at her. “What tribe are you from?” “Kakariko.” For a few seconds, he remained staring silently, his face unreadable. “What is your name? And who is your father?” “Duana. My father is Alechjo.” “Alechjo… he doesn’t have a daughter named Duana.” “What… what tribe are you from, then? What is your name?” He paused, drawing himself from thought. “Sheik, son of Geron, of Kakariko. You seem discombobulated. Are you alright?” Duana smiled. Her lips parted to say something, but another wave of nausea slammed into her. It felt like a punch, and she lurched, but the tree kept her upright. “I’m sure you’re not alright,” Sheik firmly said. As he dug through a pouch on his belt, Duana then noticed the lyre peeking around him, held in place on his back by a leather strap running across his chest in a diagonal line. Some of his blond hair escaped a ponytail a few inches long, hanging around his face as it was bent to see inside the pouch.
