Have you ever wished to hear a gentle, inner voice that advises you on what to do, what to say, or where to go?
Imagine that one day this wish gets granted. However, this voice is a far cry from the kind voice of your imagination. Instead, this voice demands your complete compliance to their wishes and you find yourself doing the unthinkable like betraying your best friend from childhood and professing your love to a stranger. According to the voice, all these actions will change the course of the future.
A future where two-thirds of the human population were wiped out because of a virus someone in your school has made.
With the fate of humanity in your hands, would you be willing to kill for the future?
In her latest work, Malice, Pintip Dunn wove a stellar narrative where the past and future of a young girl collide on a mission to save humanity from a lethal virus. Alice was a wonderful individual who melts your heart in how she tries to keep her brother and father as a family unit after their mother abandons them. After a few chapters readers are bound to find her sweet nature and love of food photography (even though she is capable of burning water) absolutely endearing. The voice of the future is sharp as a wire with the knowledge that a slip from the past can spiral the future into its current chaos.
Both Alice and the voice from the future are putting everything on the line to save what they hold dear...even if it means sacrificing parts of themselves. The manner in which Dunn placed readers in Alice's first person narrative was absolutely gripping where the twists and turns put readers on a thrilling rollercoaster.
If you enjoy time traveling adventures, this is definitely the read for you!

What I know: a boy in my class will one day wipe out two-thirds of the population with a virus.

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....
