Críticas:

"Schwab gathers all the superhero/supervillain tropes and turns them on their sundry heads.... I could not put it down."
--F. Paul Wilson, "New York Times "bestselling author of the Repairman Jack series

""Vicious "is dark and intricate and daring, twisting back and forth through time and morality and life and death until you can't turn the pages fast enough. I loved it."
--Dan Wells, author of "I Am Not a Serial Killer

""Utterly brilliant. Schwab takes the notion of superhero fiction and bashes it on its head...prepare to be thoroughly entertained."--Jackie Kessler, coauthor of "Black and White"

"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


"A fun, morally-flexible revenge tale..."Vicious" methodically ratchets up the tension as Victor and Eli circle each other for the inevitable kill.
--Daniel H. Wilson, NYT bestselling author of "Robopocalypse

Reseña del editor:

A masterful tale of ambition, jealousy, desire, and superpowers.

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?

In Vicious, V. E. Schwab brings to life a gritty comic-book-style world in vivid prose: a world where gaining superpowers doesn't automatically lead to heroism, and a time when allegiances are called into question.

"A dynamic and original twist on what it means to be a hero and a villain. A killer from page one highly recommended!" Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Marvel Universe vs The Avengers and Patient Zero


One of Publishers Weekly's Best Fantasy Books of 2013
