Review: Malignant by Michaelbrent Collings @mbcollings


by Michaelbrent Collings

Published: October 25, 2021

Publisher: Written Insomnia Press

Genre: Horror, Fiction


Global bestseller and multiple Bram Stoker Award and Dragon Award Finalist Michaelbrent Collings brings you his most thrilling tale yet!


When armed commandos storm an elite boarding school, the police think it’s a plot for ransom, or an attempt to extort favors from the teens’ powerful parents.

But the men, led by a killer who calls himself ‘‘Teacher,” have much darker plans in mind.

Teacher intends to give a lesson unlike any taught before. Written on flesh, inked in blood.

A lesson about monsters.

The bell has been rung, the lesson begun. And the lesson is this:

The monsters are real, and to them... you are just a plaything.

My Review:

Malignant opens with a bang and never lets up from one page to the next. While Malignant is a fast-paced read and in no way slow to build in the action department it does have a slow build in the way it reveals what is happening and why it is all taking place. Malignant has a large number of characters and we get to see the story from different points of view.

A man known as Teacher storms into an elite school for delinquent students over Memorial Day. A few students have stayed over as they are in detention. Teacher takes the students and faculty hostage.

Malignant is a hard story to read but knowing that it is written as fiction makes it a little easier to read even though the contents of the story take place every day are real in some form.

Everything that takes place in Malignant makes it a horrific story. The things Teacher and his band of merry men do are very horrific indeed. Malignant has quite a few gruesome murder scenes. The descriptions were so vividly written to the point where I could see each and every horrifying scene as if I was there when they took place.

Malignant will definitely take you on a roller coaster of a ride as your emotions will be all over the place. A few of those emotions are fear, sadness, disgust, and anger.

Malignant is one of the best books I have read this year if not ever. I can’t wait to read more by Michaelbrent Collings.

I highly recommend Malignant to anyone who loves a good horror fiction! I also recommend that you one-click your copy of Malignant today!
