His eyes met Victor’s, and for a second neither man moved.
Run, thought Victor, and he could see the response in Eli’s coiled frame.
Oh, how I loved this book! I've waited five long years for the sequel to Vicious and I was starting to think it would never happen... but Vengeful was so so good. Definitely worth the wait.
This duology (series??) is called "Villains" and yet the characters are so much more interesting than that. While I've enjoyed a number of Schwab's books, I feel like her ...more
things I've done instead: write a 1600+ words review about how much I fucking love this series.
Am I Victor Vale yet cause I can assure you that I died several times during the course of this book.
After wiping cold sweat off my forehead and 5 minutes of deep and thorough breathing exercises I am relieved and happy to tell you that I loved Vengeful. I had high hopes, but my fears were taller. Ever since Victoria had announced that she would write a sequel to Vicious, I wondered whether this was a good idea. Don't get me wrong, I loved the first bo ...more
This wasn't that great.
There, I said it.
Phew. That was a hard one to admit.
-yes, I liked it.
-yes, Victoria Schwab could write assembly instructions and I'd still read every word like it was prose.
-yes, it was great to be back into the Villains universe.
-yes, it was entertaining and made me lose my mind.
-and yes, I still think Mitch should adopt us all.
But I can't say I loved Vengeful as much as I loved Vicious because it'd be a lie. ...more
this had everything i loved about vicious, and so much more! i dont even know where to begin. how lucky we are to even get a sequel? how much more world building was present in this? the fact that mitch was still so wholesome? the brilliance of schwabs storytelling? how much ...more
THIS F*CKING BOOK
Someone pls kill me as this book is making me suffer inside
And then bring me back to life bc I want superpowers
^me meeting Victoria Schwab the day after I finished Vengeful and trying not to be freakishly starstruck. (she said she loved my "Victor Vale is my hero" shirt and that is peak fangirl try and top me. Also, I always thought that she must be the Devil & Co due to how her books screw me over, but she's so sweet and funny, she definitely has no Satanic origins.)
Anyway, after finishing Vengeful, I spent 10 mins searching GIF websites for variations of "death, satan, ghost, hell" to express how ...more
Five years later, I read the sequel and I'm just a whole big mess of emotions.
I expected Vengeful to be GOOD, how could it not be, when I get to return to my favorite character, Victor Vale, when I get to read more about my precious family of broken souls, my personal heroes, when I get to re ...more
I'm disappointed. I'm underwhelmed. I'm frankly a little pissed off. I went into this book with the excitement of a giddy child and came out a crone hardened by sheer boredom and anger (the worst kind). I was happy with the story, so very happy, but once Marcella (a new addition AKA the lady on the cover) mutinied and became the star of the show, around the 50% mark, I found myself dreading reading this.
I don't want this to be a long review so I'm going to b ...more
“Every end is a new beginning.”
I can’t put in words how much I adore these books. I would honestly recommend this to every single person in existence.
I read Vicious a couple of days ago. I couldn't control myself and dived into this on the weekend. Victoria Schwab managed to give us the most complex story about Villains there is, and I loved every minute of it!

What I Liked
-BACKSTORY. This book gave us tons of backstory on Eli, back to his childhood and his early days at Lockland with Victor. LOVE LOVE LOVED THIS.
-New characters. I grew tired of Marcella after a while, but I am head over heels obsessed with June. Her power is so insanely cool, and I would have gladly read a whole book about her. I have a couple of theories about her ...more
My expectations are very high. Life will be hard if this isn't all that I hope it will be. Good vibes this way pleeease XD
BRILLIANT. AMAZING. PERFECTION. THE BEST!
I’m so in love with Victoria Schwab.
I just received my signed preorder copy more than one week before its release date!!! That has never happened to me before I am so excited to read it ahhh
Oh my, Vengeful was quite a ride; although not as entertaining as Vicious, it did not disappoint and was truly worth the wait.
*This review will contain spoilers, here and there, so read at your own risk!*
When I heard Schwab was writing a sequel to Vicious, I was enthralled (to say the least). I couldn’t wait to learn more about Victor and Eli; to read more from a favorite author... add that to Vicious being one of my favorite novels and you can hopefully picture how exited I was.
That bei ...more
P.S. I highly recommend listening to Run by AWOLNATION while reading bc it’s a PERFECT theme for this book
UPDATE: apparently there’s a 5 years long time skip between book 1 and book 2 wHAT
is it september yet?
Victor Vale is my favorite anti-hero ever. He's just so bad-ass and he doesn't give a fuck, and he ...more
