Title: Malice Author: Pintip Dunn Genre: YA Sci-fi, Thriller My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Are you the same person now as you will be ten years from now?

Who is Alice Sherman? She would say she’s a loyal sister, loyal friend, a person who sees the best in things, but admittedly, the worst baker. Alice is chugging along despite difficulties in a broken family, keeping a STEM preoccupied older brother anchored to the outside world. And this girl has her eyes on the prize; she isn’t going to let boys distract her from surviving highschool. She doesn’t date.
Pintip Dunn sets up this story with slow-rolling reveals which increase the pace and urgency of the evolving narrative. Couched inside the mystery is an ever-present reminder that there is no way we can know today what challenges to come will change us fundamentally. What motivates us right now can flip on a switch with a new catalyst.
Zombie Year 2099 series has another release, and it’s Kira Nyte’s Hellsbreath Sector, a refuge for humans and supernaturals with a zombie outpost next door.
As a Fae Princess, Ysaria hasn’t ventured into the human realm despite being very curious about it. She foolishly convinced her brother to open a portal so they could adventure but found their magic bound and themselves imprisoned in cages by zombies. This species of zombies is much different than other Zombie Year 2099 undead; they are intelligent with a hunger for flesh. Their prisoners are slaves; supernaturals aren’t on the menu because they taste horrible to zombies, but they do have value in another flesh trade.
Yet slaves are slaves, beatings and violations are frequent. Ysaria keeps them angry, so she takes the punishments rather than worse. Not being able to access her powers is a further complication. Her brother Dastion and she are helpless. The only chance they have–an escape, she takes advantage of the first chance she gets. But weakened after days of captivity, she fears it will prove fruitless. It almost is.

Maddox’s face darkened. He stepped closer, crowding into my space and pushing me back against the wall.
“Maddox-” I started but he cut me off with a low snarl, his chest vibrating with the cruel sound.
My chest cracked, open wide and the fissures of my broken heart scattered on the ground at our feet.
His eyes blazed with rage and… raw pain. “I’m self destructing every time I look at you, every time my eyes seek you out when we’re in the same room. You make destruction and melancholia taste like sweet, sweet fucking poison.”
