Description

When she's not haunting Paris streets or trudging up English hillsides, Victoria "V.E." Schwab is usually tucked in the corner of a coffee shop, dreaming up monsters. The product of a British mother, a Beverly Hills father, and a southern upbringing, she currently lives in Edinburgh, Scotland.

ABOUT THE BOOK

About Vicious (Book 1 in The VILLIANS series) -- Victor and Eli started out as college roommates―brilliant, arrogant, lonely boys who recognized the same sharpness and ambition in each other. But when they discover a connection between near-death experiences and supernatural abilities, 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, and 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?
