Everyone's heard of it...but nobody's read it. Luke, Seth, and Kady have heard all the stories about Malice — a secret comic about a strange, awful world full of tricks and traps, and overseen by a sinister master of ceremonies, Tall Jake. But if rumors are to be believed, the children in this comic are real... Luke is the first to fall into this trap — and Seth and Kady are the next to follow. They have left our world and entered the sinister comic book. The question is — can they make it out alive? From acclaimed author Chris Wooding, a novel that's half fact, half comic — and all thrills.
