Vicious – V E Schwab

SYNOPSIS

Victor and Eli started out as college roommates—brilliant, arrogant, lonely boys who recognized the same sharpness and ambition in each other. In their senior year, a shared research interest in adrenaline, near-death experiences, and seemingly supernatural events reveals an intriguing possibility: that under the right conditions, someone could develop extraordinary abilities. But when their thesis moves from the academic to the experimental, things go horribly wrong. 

Ten years later, Victor breaks out of prison, determined to catch up to his old friend (now foe), aided by a young girl whose reserved nature obscures a stunning ability. Meanwhile, Eli is on a mission to eradicate every other super-powered person that he can find—aside from his sidekick, an enigmatic woman with an unbreakable will. Armed with terrible power on both sides, driven by the memory of betrayal and loss, the archnemeses have set a course for revenge—but who will be left alive at the end?

REVIEW

OMG I LOVED VICIOUS! 🖤

Eli makes me want to commit murder! I cannot stand him and I found Serena really annoying. She doesn’t redeem herself in my opinion in the end although some many argue differently.

The relationship between Victor and Sydney is adorable! I loved Victor and thought that he was an awesome character. He may do some bad things but he’s a good guy at heart.

Mitch and his chocolate milk just made me laugh. I love the idea of having someone who is described as big and intimidating but is actually really sweet. I love how V E Schwab portrays the fact that we shouldn’t judge people by their appearance because it’s such an important lesson to learn for everyday life!

Overall I thought this was brilliant and I can’t wait to finish Vengeful!

5/5 ⭐️
