Reviews

Entertainment Weekly's 27 Female Authors Who Rule Sci-Fi and Fantasy Right Now

"Fresh, merciless, and, yes, vicious. Wow." --Mira Grant, New York Times bestselling author of the Newsflesh Trilogy

"Schwab's characters feel vital and real, never reduced to simple archetypes... In a genre that tends toward the flippant or pretentious, this is a rare superhero novel as epic and gripping as any classic comic. Schwab's tale of betrayal, self-hatred, and survival will resonate with superhero fans as well as readers who have never heard of Charles Xavier or Victor von Doom." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"A fun, morally-flexible revenge tale...Vicious methodically ratchets up the tension as Victor and Eli circle each other for the inevitable kill." --Daniel H. Wilson, NYT bestselling author of Robopocalypse

"Schwab gathers all the superhero/supervillain tropes and turns them on their sundry heads.... I could not put it down." --F. Paul Wilson, New York Times bestselling author of the Repairman Jack series

"Vicious is dark and intricate and daring, twisting back and forth through time and morality and life and death until you can't turn the pages fast enough. I loved it." --Dan Wells, author of I Am Not a Serial Killer

"An epic collision of super-powered nemeses. The writing and storycraft is Schwab's own superpower as this tale leaps off the page in all its dark, four-color comic-book glory." --Chuck Wendig, author of Blackbirds

"Utterly brilliant. Schwab takes the notion of superhero fiction and bashes it on its head...prepare to be thoroughly entertained." --Jackie Kessler, coauthor of Black and White

"A noirish cross between the X-Men and 'The Count of Monte Cristo.' You won't be able to stop turning the pages." --Alex Bledsoe, author of The Hum and the Shiver

"V.E. Schwab writes with the fiendish ingenuity, sardonic wit, and twisted imagination of a true supervillain." --Greg Cox, New York Times bestselling author
