Synopsis: What I know: a boy in my class will one day wipe out two-thirds of the population with a virus.
What I don’t know: who he is.
In a race against the clock, I not only have to figure out his identity, but I’ll have to outwit a voice from the future telling me to kill him. Because I’m starting to realize no one is telling the truth. But how can I play chess with someone who already knows the outcome of my every move? Someone so filled with malice they’ve lost all hope in humanity? Well, I’ll just have to find a way—because now they’ve drawn a target on the only boy I’ve ever loved….
I’ve read quite a few books by Pintip Dunn, and I have to say, her science fiction masterpieces never cease to make my day. Whenever I see she has a new book coming out, I get really excited for it.
I was super excited for this one, especially with that super pretty cover.
I always read Pintip Dunn’s books fairly quickly, because I always feel like I’m pulled into her stories, like I’m a part of them. This is the sign of excellent writing, and I have to say, I was impressed with Malice‘s ability to do that, too. I’ve actually come to love her books because they always transport me to another world and it’s so awesome.
This book was really good – the plot, like every one of her other books, was unique, easy to follow, and really pulled you in and makes you think about what if this was our reality?
The characters, again like always, were likeable and full of personality. They are the kind of characters you develop feelings for and end up feeling quite like they could be your friends in real life, if possible!
I do wish this had been a bit more evenly paced; at times it felt fast and at other times a bit too slow. It didn’t make me dislike the story or anything though – I still felt like it was a great read and I really enjoyed it.
I’m super excited for Pintip Dunn to write more books, because they’re always such awesome reads.
Note: I received an eARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
