Kicking off the New Year right with a 5 star review.
Vicious by V.E. Schwab is a flawless masterpiece.
In a scientific experiment turned wrong, Eli and Victor, two college students, die and come back to life as ExtraOrdianaries, superhumans with strange abilities. Victor and Eli are both morally grey characters but though they both have their faults Victor is depicted as more of a hero and Eli as a villain. Victor is a mysterious badass with a soft heart as he takes in a young ExtraOrdinary who also craves revenge from Eli.
Schwab's characters are dynamic, and each have morbid abilities making Vicious a viciously dark tale. This story reads as a stand alone but it was been confirmed that Schwab is working on a sequel entitled Vengeful, expected to be released sometime in 2017.
Anyway this is the kind of book you'll read in one day and be left breathless.
