4 out of 5 stars. The most recent in my V.E. Schwab reading obsession, Vicious is a dark comic book-esque story of ordinary people who, through extreme trauma, become ExtraOrdinary. Victor Vale is out for revenge. Eli Ever thinks he’s doing God’s work. And caught up between their single-minded pursuits to stab the hell out of each other are a cast of interesting and complex side characters.
This year’s holiday season was a huge book success for me: I gave books to basically everyone and I got a slew of books in return. I also got a mini-mountain of Switch games, which is great, but means we’re going to have some competing priorities. Good thing I have a week of vacation next week!
