Waterstones Says

A thrilling blend of dark academia, superhero fable and gothic character study, this electrifying fantasy from the author of The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue centres on two students who develop extraordinary supernatural abilities which prove both blessing and curse.

Victor and Eli started out as college roommates-brilliant, arrogant, lonely boys who recognized the same sharpness and ambition in one another. A shared research interest in adrenaline, near-death-experiences, and seemingly supernatural events reveals an intriguing possibility: that under the right conditions, someone could develop extraordinary abilities. But when their thesis moves from the academic to the experimental, things go horribly wrong.

They become EOs, ExtraOrdinaries, leaving a body in their wake and turning on each other. Ten years later Victor has escaped from prison and is determined to get his revenge on the man who put him there, aided by a young girl with the ability to raise the dead. Eli has spent the years hunting down and killing every EO he can find, convinced that they are a crime against God, all except his sidekick, a woman whose power is persuasion and whom he cannot defy.

Armed with terrible power on both sides, driven by the memory of betrayal and loss, the arch-nemeses have set a course for revenge-but who will be left alive at the end?

We find ourselves in a thrilling world of EO’s or superheroes to you and me, and Victor and Eli are experimenting with the idea that EO’s are made not born, which ultimately has crippling consequences. It is brilliant... More

“No good guy, no bad guy. Just EOs.”

I fell under Schwab's spell with her Shades of Magic trilogy and made it my personal mission to read as much by her as I can. Vicious is, therefore, my fourth book by Schwab and I have to admit that after her... More
