Post Vengeful
I have not pre-ordered a book in a long long time, but Vengeful has got me hyped. It is the sequel to Vicious by V.E. Schwab.

Quote:
Victor and Eli begin as college roommates and discover that near-death experiences, under the right conditions, can create superhuman abilities. When Victor tries to create his abilities, he accidentally kills Eli's girlfriend. Eli begins to believe that all those with power are evil and starts a crusade to kill them


I thought it was great and had much more compelling characters than her Darker Shades Of Magic trilogy. The way the story turns is fascinating, as it makes a self-proclaimed villain more and more sympathetic just by showing how shitty (and incapable of realizing it) others can be. Eli starts off as a babyface do-good hero when we see him from Victor's point of view, but when it switches to Eli's side he becomes of most hatable villians I've ever read about. Right up there with Dolores Umbridge.

The sequel comes out at the end of this month. So everyone has time to catch up!

If there's a movie made of the book I'm interested.

Movie is in development hell but hopefully the release of the sequel will push it back on track.
