Chris Wooding began writing at the age of 16, and his first novel Crashing was published when he was 19. Since that time, he's written dozens of novels in several genres, notably the award-winning The Haunting of Alaizabel Cray; Poison; Storm Thief; the Malice series; and the graphic novel, Pandemonium.
"An exciting read with danger to spare." - Booklist"Like the opener, this features expertly meshed multiple plotlines, colorful supporting characters (notably a clockwork sabertooth and a Malice resident afflicted with "regenerative leprosy," meaning that he keeps losing body parts that then grow back), frequent eerie skitterings and sudden feelings of dread plus nonstop action that breaks, occasionally, from prose into graphic-novel-style panels festooned with noisy sound effects. A real crowd pleaser, with further episodes possible but not necessary." - Kirkus"Reluctant readers will be drawn in by the simple writing style interspersed with pages of comic-book-style illustrations that propel the story forward. Characterization is a little thin, but that won't deter those who are hooked on the book's relentless action, mild horror, and inventive world-building. A satisfying conclusion to a compelling read." - SLJ
