Wooding, Chris

Book - 2009
Average Rating: 4.5 stars out of 5.
Once you get into the story, there's no way out. Everyone's heard the rumors. If you gather the right things and say the right words, you'll be taken to Malice, a world that exists inside a horrifying comic book. It's a world that few kids know about ... and even fewer survive. Seth and Kady think it's all a silly myth. But then their friend, Luke, disappears and suddenly the rumors don't seem silly after all. Malice is real. Malice is deadly. And Seth and Kady are about to be trapped inside it.

I loved this book! The drawings are wonderful, and illistrate the dark world and creatures wonderfully.

The plot is creepy, and well written.

The world is menacing. The mythology is compelling. Unfortunately, the execution leaves something to be desired. Wooding leads readers around by the nose too much. The comic pages are poorly drawn, even though they should be a fine complement to the story. Doesn't quite live up to the promise of the ideas.
