What I know: a boy in my school 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...

Pintip Dunn is back and her words are just as addictive. This is a suspense novel with a dash of romance and a whole lot of mystery. To save the world you must sabotage your future.

I went into Malice with a slight bias, but I'm glad that this book only cemented the fact that Pintip Dunn is my favorite author.
If you're a fan of well executed plot twists with Malice you're in for a treat. I found myself guessing along the way, only to be absolutely mistaken for the most part.

By Heather❀Book and a Blanket❀ February 04, 2020

This YA sci-fi had me hooked from the very first chapter! Storytelling at it's finest with a loveable, slightly awkward heroine that gets thrown into a mission that's so much bigger than her semi-normal high school life.

Time travel plays a big role in this book in the most unique way. I don't think ...more

A Malice Driven Virus and the Girl Who Must Stop It

I saw several positive reviews for Malice and decided to jump in and try to have fun with it. I enjoy time travel premises when it’s creative and doesn’t stretch its credibility too far. The title is kind of stupid though? It really was shoehorned i ...more
