Publisher's Summary

A superpowered collision of extraordinary minds and vengeful intentions - number-one New York Times best-selling author 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 newfound 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.     

One of Entertainment Weekly's "27 Female Authors Who Rule Sci-Fi and Fantasy Right Now".

More elaborate than 'Vicious' just as gripping.

It was almost a single session I listened to to this Title quite a compelling listen. Interesting use of EOs powers like 'Vicious' an intricate game of cat and mouse or chess. The narrator was alright with the exception of his voice for Sydney Clarke.

Annoying Narrator

The narrator uses this whimsy, wavering voices for ALL the women in this book. ANNOYING!

Everyone is a jerk

Am I supposed to be rooting for Victor Vale? He sucks. He broods and complains. And he becomes at least as bad as Eli from book one. He poses the world's biggest false dichotomy--it's us or them-- to justify doing horrible stuff.

So, everyone goes on their way doing terrible things and complaining the whole time. The ladies were interesting because they simply embraced their powers and started living as out and out villains, which was refreshing. But overall, this book didn't satisfy because there's no one to really care about.

didn't love as much as Vicious

In many ways I LOVED this. But, I have to say that there were A LOT of time jumps in this... like every chapter was bouncing around in different timelines for different characters... like zero parts of this book were linear. In audio format that was really hard to follow, and I just gave up on keeping straight timelines in my head I could only be like "ok this is happening a long time ago" or "ok this is semi recent" but remembering what was 2 years ago or 4 years ago or 5 years ago for like 6 different character's timelines was just impossible. So, I'm not sure if that would be easier in physical copy, but if that is important to you as a reader then be aware.

Top Tier!

Schwab is one of my favorite authors, and this book showcases many of the reasons for that status. Each character is well formed and believable, and the story moves organically.
The narrator does a great job with this audio book, too

The Villains saga continues and Danger swells

I had the pleasure of completing this book and Vicious back to back and was thoroughly enthralled. This book expands the cast of EOs roaming the streets of Merritt. Their motivations and desire to find meaningful, friendship, family, or power lead them down roads that intersect. This long awaited book was well worth the wait. Thank you V.E.

Great Story in Spite of Mediocre Character Voices

Amazing part 2! I just wish I wasn't so unimpressed with the narrator's female character voices.

Confusing

Not a great follow up in my opinion. My biggest challenge with the book is that we have 5/6 storylines, and 4/5 timelines. We keep jumping from person to person, 3 weeks ago, 6 months ago, 5 years ago, 10 years ago, yesterday.. how am I supposed to keep track? I kept having to listen for a few minutes to understand where I was in the story instead of enjoying it..

Other than that, is still entertaining.. and great performance as well by the artist!

Re read worth my credits!

I’ve loved Vicious and Vengeful since I first read them last year, and was so excited to see their audiobooks with the same narration! This narrator is one of my favorites, I can clearly see the scenes so vividly. Keeping these audiobooks forever✨
