A super-powered collision of extraordinary minds and vengeful intentions—V. E. Schwab returns with the thrilling follow-up to Vicious.

Magneto and Professor X. Superman and Lex Luthor. Victor Vale and Eli Ever. Sydney and Serena Clarke. Great partnerships, now soured on the vine.

But Marcella Riggins needs no one. Flush from her brush with death, she's finally gained the control she's always sought--and will use her new-found power to bring the city of Merit to its knees. She'll do whatever it takes, collecting her own sidekicks, and leveraging the two most infamous EOs, Victor Vale and Eli Ever, against each other once more.

With Marcella's rise, new enmities create opportunity--and the stage of Merit City will once again be set for a final, terrible reckoning.
 

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

Praise for Vicious:

"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

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

"As epic and gripping as any classic comic...will resonate with superhero fans as well as readers who have never heard of Charles Xavier or Victor von Doom." —
Publishers Weekly, starred review

"The writing and storycraft is Schwab's own superpower as this tale leaps of the page in all its dark, four-color comic-book glory." —Chuck Wendig,
New York Times bestselling author of Aftermath

"Schwab's artful chronology-bending plotting rivals that of any Iain Banks novel, and her writing is a sly, cynical treat." —Financial Times (UK)

"A fun, morally-flexible revenge tale that pits two mad scientists against each other." —Daniel H. Wilson, New York Times bestselling author of Robopocalypse

"V.E. Schwab demonstrates real literary super powers with Vicious -a dynamic and original twist on what it means to be a hero and a villain. A killer from page one. Highly recommended!" —Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Extinction Machine and Marvel Universe Vs The Avengers

"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, New York Times bestselling author of I Am Not a Serial Killer


V. E. Schwab is the author of The Near Witch and The Archived. The product of a British mother, a Beverly Hills father, and a southern upbringing, Schwab has a penchant for tea and BBC shows, and a serious and well-documented case of wanderlust. Vicious is her first adult book.
