Malady Cover


Let’s play a game…

Words can be powerful things, and those four just granted me a golden ticket straight to hell.
Two beautifully deranged boys have decided I’m their next acquisition.

To make things fair they give me a chance to save myself.
All I have to do is beat them at a few games of their choice.

Truth or dare.
Hide and seek.
Simon says.

Seems simple until you account for the bloodied twist they each have.

They say in all chaos there’s calculation.

For my sake I hope that’s true because if weโ€™re going to play, Iโ€™m playing to win.

Malady is a complete novel.
There is no cliffhanger, but Malady must be read AFTER Crucible.

After reading Crucible I couldn’t wait to find out what happened next. It had been quite a while since I read Crucible so I did a quick re-read and remembered exactly why I couldn’t wait for Malady! Malady picks up right where Crucible left off so you definitely need to read Crucible first. Malady is a fast-paced, page-turner that will keep your jaw dropped the entire read trying to figure out what game these psychopaths are going to play next. This is NOT your normal romance, so if that’s what you’re looking for you have come to the wrong place.

This one is a fast-paced, full-throttle read but the ending left a bit to be desired… There’s no cliffhanger and I THINK I get where it goes, but I wish it had been explained a bit more. I just felt like there was SOMETHING missing from that ending. Other than that, another good release from Natalie Bennett.

Jace and Kaiden Blackwood come from a long line of deviants and they are surely living up to their family name. These boys have no regard for anyone else’s life, no matter who they have to use to win their game and claim their prize… Rae.
