Victoria Schwab is a unique writer for me; I love about half of her books and strongly dislike the other half. I can’t think of another author I feel that way about.
Anyway, I think that’s why I had Vicious for so long before reading it. Which is too bad because it is a great book! Two college students, Victor and Eli, discover that there is a pattern for those who have developed supernatural abilities: they had a near death experience prior. Naturally, they decide to experiment on themselves.
The direction each one takes with their new abilities makes for an exciting read. It’s another example to prove that what one does with the hand they’ve been dealt makes all the difference.
I’m keeping this review short and sweet because I don’t want to give too much away. I highly recommend reading this one soon because the sequel, Vengeful, comes out on September 25th, 2018. For those in the Seattle area, Victoria will be at Third Place on September 28th.
