Waiting on Wednesday (#24): Vicious by V.E. Schwab


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


This week, I'm featuring:


Vicious by V.E. Schwab
Publisher: Tor Books
Publication Date: September 24, 2013

Summary (from Goodreads):

Victor and Eli started out as college roommates—brilliant, arrogant, lonely boys who recognized the same sharpness and ambition in each other. In their senior year, 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.

Ten years later, Victor breaks out of prison, determined to catch up to his old friend (now foe), aided by a young girl whose reserved nature obscures a stunning ability. 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. Armed with terrible power on both sides, driven by the memory of betrayal and loss, the archnemeses have set a course for revenge—but who will be left alive at the end?



I love Victoria Schwab, so this book sounds good to me! :D

  12. I totally love Victoria Schwab as well- that woman can WRITE. I have no doubts that this is going to be just as awesome, although it's Adult. I've already seen some gushing reviews, which only confirms the obvious. ;)

    Lovely pick! <3

  19. Initially, I hadn't even glanced at this because it looks like MG, and while I like MG I'm not actively looking for titles. But now that I see your pick? DANG, who's been hiding this from me? Seriously, awesome pick, Alyssa!! :D
