Editorial Reviews


“Readers won't be able to put down this dark and riveting tale of power and revenge.”―Kirkus Reviews, starred

“With all the knife-sharp thrill of its cinematic predecessor, 2013’s
Vicious, bestseller Schwab’s second Villains series plunges readers back into the world of extraordinary humans.”―Publisher’s Weekly, starred

Vengeful picks up five years after the insane events of book one, ratcheting up the stakes and introducing two kickass women with extraordinary powers.”―Paste Magazine

“Schwab does a masterful job in these two books, capturing all of the questions superheroes would raise in our reality and with nuance not often found in the genre at large.”―

Vicious is a blast to the chest, then Vengeful is a cold knife between the ribs, sharp and something that’ll sit with you long after you reach the last page.”―Culturess

“[Schwab is] a highly skilled writer...With each page, the story grows faster, denser, and more inescapable, like all good books should.
Vengeful, like Vicious before it, is one of those books.”―Den of Geek

“The long-anticipated sequel to V.S. Schwab's super-villain novel,
Vicious, is finally here, and it's worth the wait.”―Bustle

“V.E. Schwab showcases her prolific writing prowess in Vengeful…an adrenaline rush.”―

5.0 out of 5 stars A sequel you will love!
By Gza on July 4, 2019
Wow, what a ride. Right after I finished reading Vicious I didn’t wait long at all to order Vengeful. Since I enjoyed Vicious so much, I had high expectations for this sequel and it did not disappoint. I have become a big fan of Schwab’s writing. She just keeps you reading on and on. There is never a dull moment.

I’m truly satisfied with the ending of this duology -I’m crossing my fingers Schwab writes a third book at some point though- I love all of the new and old characters. I could have used more story development around previous characters I became fond of, but, overall, I loved the way the story came to be. I wasn’t a big fan of the back and forth timelines though. It was okay in Vicious, but in this one, it felt a bit exhausting. You would be reading a few pages about something that took place 3 years ago and then the next chapter would be about something that took place 2 weeks ago with a whole different character and it would sometimes be another 10 chapters before you would go back to reading about that same character.I would often have to flip back in the book to try and remember what was going on in that character’s story. Despite this, I still give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ and I would highly recommend it to anyone!

5.0 out of 5 stars The finale left me holding my breath to the last page
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on December 18, 2021
Many superhero duos go sour over time and the friendship of Victor Vale and Eli Ever is no exception. After their showdown which resulted in Eli's incarceration and Victor's death, it's safe to say their friendship is dead. One thing that Victor has going for him is Sydney and the ability to bring him back to life. But as with all her resurrections, his powers aren’t working quite right. He experiences power surges with extreme pain that results in his death for short periods. Each time it happens he stays dead longer. As he hunts for answers and a cure from other EOs, the trail of bodies he leaves behind draws the attention of the authorities.

Meanwhile, a new EO emerges. Marcella Riggins survived an attempted murder by her mafia husband and a house fire. This resulted in her having the ability to reduce anything to ash. After taking revenge on her, she plans to take control of his mob business. Marcella gathers other powerful EOs to her side to aid her in this takeover. With a manhunt for her capture is underway, she decides to leverage the two most wanted EOs instead. Merit City has a war brewing as these three powerful EOs do battle but a malicious hidden figure has come up with a way to suppress their abilities. Will he show his hand before it's too late or will his meddling cause even further damage?

Will Marcella be able to turn over Eli and Victor in exchange for her freedom or will all three of them finally pay the ultimate price for their crimes and duplicitousness?

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟. I was hooked instantly while reading Vicious but the introduction of Marcella between Eli and Victor added depth to the story, new and thrilling action and a chance for all their characters to develop which showed their true motivations. Victor was darker in this one. I felt this was spurred on by his fear of death which made him take risks and questionable actions. Sydney was still his conscience in this story and I loved how her story arc progressed. The finale left me holding my breath to the last page. I look forward to reading more in this series.
