Vicious by V.E. Schwab

An interesting prose book about ExtraOrdinaries… a kind of super, in a world where they’re hidden, mostly unrealized. It’s a darker, almost dismaying version of super heroes… which makes it feel real, authentic. Victor and Eli both feel like ambitious, driven… entitled, jerky guys. They feel right for college age guys.

The book is two tracked for the first half; a current and 10 years ago. It then shifts to current and moves forward only (though there are a few flashbacks still). It features multiple, engaging POVs… I liked it. It’s a complete book–a complete thought–but it sounds like there are sequels planned. I’ll keep an eye out for them.
