My Thoughts on Malignant by Michaelbrent Collings
This is a story that, if the content warnings didn’t steer you away, you just need to dive into for yourself.
I won’t comment much here, but I will say that this was one of the most brutal things I’ve read.
The overall plot was so well thought out. When the puzzle pieces begin to fall together, you’ll realize that the author thought of everything and that was perfectly laid out in the story itself.
But be warned, this is a page-turner! Once you dive in, you’ll want to see it right through to the end.
My Favorite Passages from Malignant

Fans of crime horror, this is a must read!
Thanks for reading!
