Description


*NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER*
*2018 GOODREADS CHOICE AWARD WINNER FOR BEST SCIENCE FICTION CATEGORY*
*Entertainment Weekly's 27 Female Authors Who Rule Sci-Fi and Fantasy Right Now*

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. Sydney and Serena Clarke. Victor Vale and Eli Ever.

Great partnerships—now soured on the vine.

But Marcella Riggins needs no one.

Flush from her brush with death, she’s gained the control she always sought—and will use her newfound power to bring the city of Merit to its knees. She’ll do whatever it takes, from taking over the mob to collecting her own sidekicks, and even leveraging the two most infamous EOs, Victor Vale and Eli Ever, in a dangerous game of cat and mouse.

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

“In Vengeful, V.E. Schwab is at the top of her game, with twisty action, oddball family pairings and unexpected antiheroes you can’t help but root for.” —Washington Post

“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

Praise For…

“With all the knife-sharp thrill of its cinematic predecessor, 2013’s Vicious, bestseller Schwab’s second Villains series plunges readers back into the world of extraordinary humans.”—Publisher’s Weekly, starred

Vengeful picks up five years after the insane events of book one, ratcheting up the stakes and introducing two kickass women with extraordinary powers.”—Paste Magazine

“Schwab does a masterful job in these two books, capturing all of the questions superheroes would raise in our reality and with nuance not often found in the genre at large.”—BookRiot

“If Vicious is a blast to the chest, then Vengeful is a cold knife between the ribs, sharp and something that’ll sit with you long after you reach the last page.”—Culturess
