You can read our interview with V.E. Schwab here!
Having superpowers doesn’t make you a hero, especially in V.E. Schwab’s Villains series. Book One, titled Vicious, introduced us to a world in which near-death experiences could trigger ExtraOrdinary powers. But as college students Victor and Eli discovered, gaining powers was more likely to catalyze catastrophe than altruism.
Schwab returns to the Villains universe in Vengeful, the stunning sequel that explores what happens when women who are stripped of power choose to reclaim it. Intrigued? Then check out Vengeful’s premise:
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 new-found 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.
