Actions having consequences
Vicious - Victoria Schwab

Ten years ago Victor and Eli were in College and they had a theory that with a near-death experience they could trigger superheroic abilities, they experiment on themselves and find that a lot of things are possible.  However during Victor's experiment there are tragic consequences which lead Eli to believe that he should kill those with powers and lands Victor in Jail.  10 years later Victor escapes and is bent on revenge.


Some who gain power are driven mad by it and some are made too arrogant.  This looks carefully at power and revenge and the terrible things people can do to each other.  Looking forward to more in this world.

great little Victorian gem with a witty heroine, an awesome supporting cast and a cliffy that will make you run to book #2
These Vicious Masks - Kelly Zekas,Tarun Shanker

Let me start by saying that I LOVED this book and I am extremely confused as to why the ratings are on the low side. Not only was it paced expertly, written beautifully and the characters were crafted magnificently it was ultimately executed perfectly. That cliffhanger was admittedly a bit difficult to digest BUT it helped that the next in the series was already available. There is a love triangle of sorts but since the setting is Victorian with a very definite Historical Fiction vibe, the budding romances were extremely tame! The character development was so rich that you couldn't help but fall in love with the secondary and tertiary supporting characters as well as the very witty, non damsel in distress heroine. I loved Evelyn's snarky interactions with the very dashing and ever ready to please Mr. Kent and who could resist the master of brooding hunky Mr. Braddock? Who will she ultimately choose?!? This is a rapidly consumed, addictive guilty pleasure that will have you reaching for book #2, These Ruthless Deeds, in no time at all. Enjoy!!

Vicious (Sinners of Saint Book 1)
Vicious (Sinners of Saint Book 1) - L.J.... Vicious (Sinners of Saint Book 1) - L.J. Shen Well, color me surprised. In the first pages, I thought, "I won't be able to handle this," but it mixed 18 year old thinking with 28 year olds who have never resolved their 10 year old issues. Somehow, this...worked. Vicious (stupid name) is cold and unfeeling, Emilia is the Southern ingenue who challenges him without blinking. If we couldn't see the inner workings of Vicious, understand how he came to be him, see his love for his mother, none of this would have worked. But Shen made him compelling enough and his story left you curious enough that I was absolutely able to stomach moving from her point of view (highly unstable/manipulative relationship) to the explanation of why it happens that way. I wouldn't call it the healthiest love story, but it won me over in the end--and it certainly wasn't simple hate to love.

VIcious - Victoria Schwab,Victoria Schwab Victor and Eli were college roommates when they figure out how to become “ExtraOrdinary”. Their superpowers, however, left them in very different places in life. This book switches between present day and the time they gained their powers. This book has complex characters and while being story about revenge it doesn’t go down the easy good and evil route. I loved this book, it’s my first introduction to Schwab and I love her writing and storytelling. I loved how fleshed out all the characters in this book were, even the side characters. This really helped me to be able to see the various points of view in the characters and I loved it. I enjoyed the dual timeline and while sometimes that can bog down a story, this one wrapped together really well so I didn’t feel like I was slogging through one timeline to get back to the other. I totally recommend this book and will be picking up more from her in the future.
