Waiting on Wednesday #37 - Vicious

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine
that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating

Vicious by V. E. Schwab
Release Date: Sept 24 / 2013
Publisher: Tor
A masterful, twisted tale of ambition, jealousy, betrayal, and superpowers, set in a near-future world.
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?

Doesn't this sound so awesome? Super abilities and a guy determined to kill all of them! Sounds cool and the cover is really different from most YA books.


  1. I'm quite sure this is an Adult book but I agree, the cover is epic.

  2. I've not heard of this book, but it does sound pretty good :)

    My WW!

  3. Hmm if I am not mistaken the author also has a YA series under the name Victoria Schwab... Such a coincidence (or not) that the title is Vicious, the main character name is Victor, and the author name herself is Victoria. All begins with Vic lol.

  4. I haven't seen this book before but it sounds interesting. I'd love to read some reviews of it when it comes out. Nice pick! I hope you enjoy reading it.
