When I pick a book up, I am travelling to a distant place and some times I become one of the characters in a book. My love for stories are the ones that begin and end where fiction is more honest than reality.

A Vicious Addictive Read of Jealousy, Betrayal and Revenge

VIcious - V.E. Schwab

There are no good men in this game


There is some thing about Vicious that is seriously a good vicious read. Sorry, maybe saying that does not sound right. Here's what I really want to say:

What a rush of adrenaline read! There is some thing that works in Vicious that really sets the standard of writing that, once again I may have used the same term, grab the reader at the beginning, spin the reader into a world of origin, purpose and revenge and hits you gasping for air just waiting... waiting to ask the question in mind - WHEN IS THE SEQUEL COMING?!?!?! 2018 IS A LONG WAY!!!

I want more Victor Vale! I want more Eli Cardale/Ever! These two are my favorite characters! They are arrogant, selfish and bad in their own way! Their intentions were unspeakable true and their philosophy are just so twisted! The antiheroes that think they are heroes - think Vin Diesel's Richard B. Riddick except scrawny!

What I love most - the characters introduced for every single chapter are memorable. They are filled with backgrounds, their motivation aims and their purpose. Every breath is given realistically, even to supporting characters - you just can't help but notice them. The setting description, the flow of the reading - it is just non-stop reading! Its almost perfect and finally, finding out that there's going to be a movie adaptation!!! They better set it right and find the right actors to play Victor (I hope its not Robert Pattinson) but seriously - I am drawn to this world that its what I always wanted to read (or even write) about people with extraordinary powers. It really made sense in the origin!

I would recommend this to anyone looking for any thing that hits you so good in the stomach after a meal and that you wish to come back more? Vicious is your book.

P.S.:- The characters, as the title states, are vicious in their own way too. Seriously, deliciously... vicious.
