SchwabIn flashbacks and I think the less I say about that the you ll enjoy reading about how it all went down in the pastI do think you should know that neither of them are sympathetic characters but you do end p rooting for Victor to winI gotta say I thought the ending was a little Land Grants and Lawsuits in Northern New Mexico underwhelming but that may only be because I thought the rest of the book was so good that it didn tite meet my expectations Still I ended p tearing through this thing in a few days and thought it was overall a pretty fantastic storyDefinitely

Extraordinary abilities But when their thesis moves from the academic to the experimental things go horribly wrongTen years later Victor breaks out of prison determined to catch p 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 enigma. Vicious is the story of a villain and a hero Or that s what it disguises itself as It s really the story of five different morally grey characters all out for themselves battling it out This is a book that explores the hero villain dichotomy and promptly shatters it to pieces Someone could call themselves a hero and still walk around killing dozens Someone could be labeled a villain for trying to stop that person Plenty of humans were monstrous and plenty of monsters knew how to play at being human I love books that subvert and explore tropesVicious sets itself apart from Schwab s other adult releases with a far faster pace My main complaint about Darker Shade of Magic was the lack of character driven plot events happened to the characters "Rather Than Because Of Them That S " than because of them That s true here Every single plot twist is due to an action by a main characterIn terms of characters this book absolutely rocks Schwab s characters have such clear motivation for everything they do Not a single character here is particularly good everyone is a solid chaotic neutral except for Eli who s one of the best lawful evil antagonists I ve ever read Interlude Me Ranting About How Much I Love These Characters they re evil you shouldn t love them we all have
problematic favesVictor is the technical villain but he s far easier to root for and empathizefavesVictor is the technical villain but he s far easier to root for and empathize Eli is a believable well developed character but his cruel fanaticism isn t a well sold brand Maybe Eli has a moral code and Victor doesn t but Eli is lying to himself about his motives Victor is evil but he s absolutely aware of his place in the narrative which made him easy to root for Schwab s development of these characters makes the book s main conflict even high stakes She also shows off her talent for relationship building here the conflict between Victor and Eli is so dynamic and interesting The difference between Victor and Eli he suspected wasn t their opinion on EOs It was their reaction to them Eli seemed intent to slaughter them but Victor didn t see why a seful skill should be destroyed just because of its
I m always ready to read about friends to enemies and Victor and Eli s is especially cool Even so because they have genuinely touching moments Tell you what said Victor You remember me and I ll remember you and that way we won t be forgotten But they re not the only interesting 3 D characters here Serena and Sydney are two incredibly compelling characters and their sisterly conflict makes them ever interesting Sydney is a 13 year old girl who can raise the dead Serena can make everyone around her follow her suggestions Despite being on evil sides these two girls are so believable and their motivations so clear that it s hard not to root for their respective sides I hated Eli yet I rooted for Serena despite her being on his side The other side characters are eually as developed I especially loved Mitch he s a criminal down on his luck Possibly my favorite thing was the odd familial dynamic between Mitch Victor Sydney and Dol the dog The dynamic between Victor and Sydney is totally awesome Safe had ceased to be a place for Sydney It had become a person Specifically safe had become Victor Tell me you didn t cry reading that You re LYINGMitch and Sydney and Mitch and Victor s relationships both stand out as well I don t need a bodyguard said Victor I noticed that said MitchVictor let out a cough of a laugh Yes well I don t want everyone else to notice too So what do you want he askedVictor s lips curled into that same dangerous smile A friend I don t know if I can pick a favorite character here They re all so interesting and memorable Definitely recommended for any fans of morally ambiguous antiheroes and thanks to everyone who wouldn t stop recommending this Blog Goodreads Twitter Youtube A Tale of Two Sociopaths One is just ever so slightly lovable than the otherThis was right p my alley with all the Create A Superhero stuffThe reality of course is that neither of these guys are heroes Victor and Eli were college roommates who experimented with a theory that Eli had about how Extra Ordinary people were created Turns out he was right Ta da Due to some Bonsái unfortunate factors Victor s transformation doesn t goite as smoothly as Eli s And because of that little snafu Victor ends A Want of Kindness up spending the better part of a decade in prison Where he plots his revahnge revenge The whole storynfolds.

an exciting plot and some of the most addictive writing I veexciting plot and some of the most addictive writing I ve readSchwab s other books never appealed to me but I suddenly find myself wanting to see if all her writing is like this Some books just have that spark It s a compulsive readability in the writing style it demands to be read it demands that you keep turning pages like a crazy person You can t really explain or define it you can only point to examples of where it exists And it exists here Everything about this book draws you in the characters the plot the way the book moves fluidly from past to present everything I can t tell you how much Vicious surprised me and I can t find words to explain just how exciting gripping and beautifully twisted it is But I shall tryVicious falls into the adultnew adult category as opposed to young adult To break it down simply this is a story about superheroes and supervillains and how it isn t always so easy to tell which is which Victor JAPAN 1/1M3. uestions at one pointThe paper called Eli a heroThe word made Victor laugh Not just because it was absurd but because it posed aestion If Eli really was a hero and Victor meant to stop him did that make him a villain It s all about the ambitions the betrayals and the jealousies of people who are far too clever for their own good People who work together to obtain power but whose friendship is torn apart by said power The characters including the protagonist all have dark sides hiding beneath their calm collected exteriors Perhaps this will put some readers off but I was absolutely fascinated by the exploration of the fine line between the good guys and the bad guysThe story is split between the present and ten years ago The present tells of Victor an escaped convict who is determined to find his old friend turned enemy and deal out the revenge that is burning inside him Flash back to ten years ago and Victor is a bright young niversity student who is practically inseparable from his best friend Eli When Eli proposes a plan to discover whether EOs Extra Ordinaries exist he and Victor become partners in a scheme that will take them to hell and back and maybe just maybe grant them supernatural abilities I adored the complex friendship between the two men
