My Rating: Thumbs Up


Have you ever played with a paddle ball? You know that moment when the ball is not quite at the end of its tether, but hasn’t quite yet made it back to the paddle? That’s “Malicious,” the third installment of the Back to Bad series by Jade Eby.

Once again, the action picks up right where “Voracious” left off. Quickly Lacey is on her own to reflect on her cation and contemplate her next move. Just as she decides what to do next another obstacle (or two) is lobbed at her. This leaves Lacey, and the readers, wondering how Lacey will escape this time.

While this installment of the Back to Bad series isn’t as tension fraught as the first 2 short stories, it is a solid bridge chapter leading to the final two stories featuring Lacey Caldez.
