Editorial Reviews


Praise for the work of Griffin Hayes

"Nail-biters beware: Griffin Hayes will have you chewing off your arm!"
-- Hugh Howey, best-selling author of WOOL

"Griffin Hayes brings to-the-point characterizations, a crisp writing style, and well-written action scenes."
-- Keith C. Blackmore, best-selling author of MOUNTAIN MAN

From the Author

Although the main characters in Malice are teenagers (17-years old), the novel was written to appeal to all fans of the supernatural regardless of age. If you are on the look-out for a seriously creepy thriller set in a small town with witchcraft,  unexplained murders and a touch of romance, then Malice is definitely for you.

More About the Author

I grew up watching grainy reruns of The Twilight Zone and rereading worn-out copies of Raymond Chandler novels. Eventually, my taste for the unsettling and the inexplicable found an outlet in my short stories; two of which have been published: The Grip with Black Ink Horror and Last Call with Alienskin. I've written a handful of books to date. The latest is a post-apocalyptic series called Primal Shift about a worldwide amnesia that sends humanity back to the dark ages.

I'm always thrilled to hear from readers, so feel free to drop me a line at: griffinhayesbooks[at]gmail[dot]com.

I discovered Malice when its author, Grifffin Hayes, started following me on Twitter. Out of curiosity, I downloaded the sample version and started reading. By the time I reached the end of the sample I was hooked and happily paid my $0.99 to see where the story went from there. I couldn't be happier that I did.

Malice was a thoroughly engaging read from start to finish. With likeable protagonists, a swiftly moving plot, and a villain as despicable as they come it's pure entertainment. Hayes pulls no punches and constantly keeps you wondering exactly how the story is going to end. If you're a fan of horror and the paranormal, you can't go wrong with this one. I sincerely hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

I picked this book up because a friend recommended it,and the cover really drew me in. I finished it just now and i have to say I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The hero's an outcast who has out of body experiences and sees a murder. It had all the things I look for, face moving plot, characters you care about, parts that spook you. If I had one slight complaint, I would have liked more scenes set in the 1600s. Maybe thats because I normally read historical fiction. I liked the donnie darko feel i got from the main character. loved that bit. All in all, though, my two cents: pick this up, you can't go wrong.

Won from a giveaway on Librarything I was curious when I saw the cover and read the synopsis of the book. A little leery and on my way to wanting something more new and fresh to read than the usual of my genre pool as of late I decided that a break from Zombies or some Paranormal Romance this would be just my cup of tea and picked it for my read this week. I was gladly not disappointed. Upon reading the book I was pulled in and could not stop turning the pages. The concept was nice and fresh with a little bit of the old classical horror feel from most angles.

It's about Lysander a young man new to the area alienated not only by peers and classmates for how he dresses and how he acts sometimes but as well by his own father who seems to hold a grudge against him for the past loss of his little brother that never came to full term and the injury to his mother. Now with their home having been burned down they have moved to the town of Millingham and little did they know that the darkness there was ready to consume them all or at least Lysander.

Samantha Crow daughter to the town Sheriff and all around dark girl or Wiccan as most do not know or understand has been having nightmares herself of her mother and her mothers death. She doesn't believe that her mother committed suicide like her father and others of the town are trying to make her believe and she's not only right the murderer is out there still and looking for her and Lysander.

This 3 part, 36 chapter novel spooked me from literally the first sentence--"The stranger grinned and his sunken cheeks made his face look like a skull."--to the very end. It was creepy like a movie you'd find on the Chiller channel. With chills running down my spine, every so often I stopped reading to look around my room, definitely over my shoulder. There's a painting of five ballerinas that I kept staring at to make sure their eyes didn't move. That's how great the author is in being very descriptive and creating a frightening vibe.

I loved that it was a mystery. Lysander tried to figure out why he's seeing unusual things. Samantha (a.k.a. Sam) doubted her mom committed suicide, and Deputy Alex realized something went on than meets the eye.

Even though Lysander was the main character, readers get a chance to understand everyone else as well through their third person point-of-view narratives. I liked that I knew the reveal of a solved clue before certain people in the story realized what was going on.

The most frightening scenes for me were when Lysander enters Millingham and the sign says 'STAY AWAY', whenever it described the character's suicide in detail, and whenever it mentioned Peter Hume and Reverend Small. I could picture them looking so deathly and menacing.

I loved the sarcastic sense of humor, especially in the library scene. I enjoyed Lysander, Sam, and Derek's friendship. I liked Derek, so with the house party scene, I was like "NO!" The story brought me back to my high school days with the classroom and hallway scenes, and with teens being frustrated with their parents but not communicating it in an effective way.

When everyone was finally on the same page in believing Lysander, my heart raced.

I've been on a roll lately with my reading. One great book after another has passed through my hands all year, both independent and professional fields of publishing, too. When I decide to do my top ten reads of the year in month or so, it's going to be one of the most difficult lists I've ever had to make since I started recording these things.

One book that might make that list is Malice by Griffin Hayes. I felt a familiarity with the prose and characters almost right away. It reminded me of late summer nights I used to stay up and read the darkness away when I was a lonely teenager. Back then, I would read books from the likes of Dean Koontz, Robert McCammon, and Stephen King. Malice reminds me of them.

Lysander is the new kid in town. Right away he makes more than a few enemies, but he also makes some friends. Which is a good thing, because he's going to need their help. Something is after Lysander, something that is killing other people in town and making it look like suicide.

I don't want to go into too much more plot for fear of ruining things. But, let's just say that there are a few twists and turns and a lot of action along the way that will keep you guessing.

The two main characters interested me a lot, too. Both Lysander and Samantha were both the reason I was reminded of those other authors. Watching them develop and get out of the perilous dangers hunting them was a lot of fun. As this is a YA novel, I think that Hayes will have similar sixteen year old readers, identifying with always being the odd one, the outcast.
