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 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.Read more ›

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.Read more ›

Malice is fantastic!! Griffin Hayes is another writer who does not get anough accolades for his work in the horror field or writing. This book was creepy and scary and perfect!!!Published on February 25, 2013 by djpayn
The book was very good albeit sometimes the twists in the plot sometimes made the story hard to follow. I recommend this book for anyone who likes murder mysteries and the occult.Published on February 15, 2013 by B. Lantrip
