Everyone’s heard the rumors. Call on Tall Jake and he’ll take you to Malice, a world that exists inside a terrifying comic book. A place most kids never leave.

Seth and Kady think it’s all a silly myth. But then their friend disappears, and suddenly the rumors don’t seem so silly anymore…

Part thriller, part ground-breaking graphic novel … get into this story, and you may never get out!

Ideology of Madness is pleased to partner with the kind folks at Scholastic to bring you the chance to win one of five copies of the beautiful, hardbound MALICE by Chris Woooding.

Chris Wooding is a British writer born in Leicester, England and now living in London. His first book, Crashing, which he wrote at the age of nineteen, was published in 1998 when he was twenty-one. Since then he has written many more, including The Haunting of Alaizabel Cray, which won the Nestlé Smarties Book Prize Silver Award, and Poison, which won the Lancashire Children’s Book of the Year. He is also the author of two different series: Broken Sky, an anime-influenced fantasy serial for children, and Braided Path, a fantasy trilogy for adults.

Malice is part novel, part comic.

I held the book in my hand for a brief moment before shipping it off to Paul for review.  It is stunning.  Really, a beauty of a book.  It killed me to send it off to that rotten, no-good Paul.

What was that I said?  Five chances to win?  Yep!
