I am finding it extremely difficult to come up with the right words to accurately describe just how much I adored this novel. I completed it well over a month ago and I am still constantly thinking about it.

It has been quite a while since I was so quickly pulled into a novel. Vicious follows the story of two best friends turned archnemeses, with a narrative that jumps between the present day and their time in college together ten years prior. During their study of extraordinary abilities, things get out of control, landing Victor in prison, bent on getting revenge, and Eli attempting to wipe out every super-powered person in existence.

In alternating time periods and perspectives, the story of their falling out is gradually filled in, and the mystery pieced together in a fast-paced and suspenseful way. Victoria Schwab is an absolutely brilliant writer with an incredibly addicting writing style that flows beautifully. Her innovative ideas, particularly in the depiction of the super-human abilities, make a well-loved topic into a remarkable and unique reading experience.

She is spot on with her level of detail and description when it comes to her world and character building, and she masterfully creates a dark, chilling mood and atmosphere all the way through.

Her words, her details, her plot points, everything just flows so nicely.

Early on, I had my doubts about the way the novel jumped around in time so often. That is something I typically do not enjoy, as I have found that I tend to get lost and confused easily in books that skip around too much.

However, this did not happen at all as I was reading this book, and I actually ended up loving the style. In general, this can be a rather dangerous and risky way to write a novel, but Schwab executes it perfectly and completely nails this method of storytelling.


Since the plot is so connected to the past and the history of the characters, being able to jump back and hear first-hand what happened to them definitely contributes a lot to the novel as a whole. There is also plenty of suspense within each chapter to boot. All of this really succeeds in fully immersing the reader in the story and making them want to read on.

The character creation and development is one of the strongest and most important aspects of this novel, and is definitely some of the best I have ever come across.

It is a novel about villains, revenge, and the dangers of extreme power.

Schwab works hard to create vivid and complex characters, and she presents the reader with a comprehensive portrayal of every single one. This is one of my personal favorite elements to see in a story. And whether they are hero or villain, this connection is essential.

No matter what side their loyalties lie on, every character needs to be relatable in order to have an impact on an audience. Vicious contains a very flawed group of individuals, and none of their negative qualities are sugar-coated. Their flaws are a driving force in the plot. That is exactly what she has succeeded in creating here, and it adds a great amount of depth to the story.

Whether you like them or not, they are utterly fascinating, and you find yourself fully captivated by their plotlines, constantly wanting to know more.

This book is filled with many magnificent examples of antiheroes, and what comes from this is an absolutely enthralling character study. Victor is one of the most amazingly well-imagined characters I have ever read about in my life. His characterization was brilliantly done, and his storyline was absorbing from the very first page.

V. E. Schwab

Overall, Victor is a surprisingly relatable and likeable villain, and an impeccable choice for a main protagonist. He was by far my favorite character in the novel.

Though he is an intensely dislikable character, his plotline was fantastically well executed. As a reader, we are meant to feel that he is entirely immoral. His actions are not at all condonable, nor is there any justification for anything he does.

And we as the reader are correct in thinking this, because his inhumane actions are not and should not be justifiable; he is a monster. However, it is also easy to understand why he justifies his own actions to himself. Victor is much more aware of what he is doing and, though he does questionable things primarily for his own motives, that is not the definition of all of his actions.

V.E. Schwab

There are certain actions each do individually that it would be hard imagining the other doing. Victor is certainly more aware of the consequences of his actions, and though that might not prevent him from ever doing evil, he has limits and never has any misconception about his purpose in life.

Schwab also fills this book with an all-star set of secondary characters. Sydney is a downright lovely character, and by far the most purely endearing and innocent of the bunch.

I can't even say I "liked" the main characters of Eli and Victor——they're both sociopaths——but they were just so fascinating. I could read about these two all day long and never be bored. The side characters, were all very interesting.

I have huge soft spots for Sydney and Mitch——and I found Serena to be quite complex. You could never really predict her or her motives. As always, Schwab's writing is absolutely beautiful.

I honestly can't stop gushing about this book, which is perfect in an age where superheroes get all the spotlight. It was pretty interesting and did a good job of keeping your attention. I'd recommend this one for anyone looking for a light action novel. Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by Jesse from Awesome I wasn't sure if I'd like this book but it was the complete opposite.

Loved it! I found it to have a really strong start and to be quite intriguing. Felt very Gothic, s London-esque. And never quite the same again.

Anyway after the initial beginning and learning about these characters and their goals, it started to feel a little cliched Some additional characters felt arbitrary as Victor the anti-hero works his way back to finding Eli the actual villain, if we are to decide and even the language the author uses seemed cliched at times.

I felt like I'd read this before; it reminded me of harlequin paperbacks that are essentially all the same novel and dialogue, but with a different setting and character names. I can't quite put my finger on it.

Reward Yourself

Nearing the end it also felt like it went around and around, talking the reader through the plot, telling you what was happening even though it was obvious, and saturated with inner dialogue. I skipped through probably the last 30 pages, skimming as I went, and didn't feel I missed anything or surprised in the least by what occurred. I suppose I was entertained enough to see it through; Victor and Eli are well-written and the first half of the book was fairly decent.

I would not pick up the sequel, and I wouldn't read others by the author, either. They had the air of being a tad juvenile. Date published: Rated 4 out of 5 by Mahera from Superheroes But really, are they heroes? The ones in this book are crazy and lack morals to get what they want, can't wait to read the next one Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by Star from Outstanding book This book was truly a wonderful read!

He wanted his attention. 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. Skip this list. You knew what you were getting into when you signed up.
