  • Emily May
    His eyes met Victor’s, and for a second neither man moved.Run, thought Victor, and he could see the response in Eli’s coiled frame.Chase me.Oh, how I loved this book! I've waited five long years for the sequel to Vicious and I was starting to think it would never happen... but Vengeful was so so good. Definitely worth the wait.This duology (series??) is called "Villains" and yet the characters are so much more interesting than that. While I'v...

    Me, having absolutely no concept of liking things in moderation: I WOULD DIE A THOUSAND FIERY DEATHS FOR THIS BOOK

    “I don't want to survive. I want to thrive.”Am I Victor Vale yet cause I can assure you that I died several times during the course of this book.After wiping cold sweat off my forehead and 5 minutes of deep and thorough breathing exercises I am relieved and happy to tell you that I loved Vengeful. I had high hopes, but my fears were taller. Ever since Victoria had announced that she would write a sequel to Vicious, I wondered whether this was...

    Okay. I'm gonna be a big brave girl and say it. This wasn't that great. There, I said it. Phew. That was a hard one to admit. I mean-yes, I liked it. -yes, Victoria Schwab could write assembly instructions and I'd still read every word like it was prose. -yes, it was great to be back into the Villains universe. -yes, it was entertaining and made me lose my mind. -and yes, I still think Mitch should adopt us all. But I can't say I loved Vengeful ...

    you know how I’ve been talking all week about the #fivestarathon, and there were five challenges, one of which was to read five books during the one-week readathon, and I had a full TBR and I’d picked five books, and I didn’t think I’d actually get it done because I haven’t really been reading recently? I fucking did it I read seven books this week, five of which were for this readathon, and this was the last one and I finished at 12:30...

    ^me meeting Victoria Schwab the day after I finished Vengeful and trying not to be freakishly starstruck. (she said she loved my "Victor Vale is my hero" shirt and that is peak fangirl try and top me. Also, I always thought that she must be the Devil & Co due to how her books screw me over, but she's so sweet and funny, she definitely has no Satanic origins.)Anyway, after finishing Vengeful, I spent 10 mins searching GIF websites for variations o...

    I little over 5 years ago I read a short preview of Vicious via Netgalley and immediately knew I would love this book. Forward to October 2013 and I ended up having a new favorite book, my ONE favorite book.Five years later, I read the sequel and I'm just a whole big mess of emotions.I expected Vengeful to be GOOD, how could it not be, when I get to return to my favorite character, Victor Vale, when I get to read more about my precious family of ...
  • Faith
    Good grief I'm finally done with this.I'm disappointed. I'm underwhelmed. I'm frankly a little pissed off. I went into this book with the excitement of a giddy child and came out a crone hardened by sheer boredom and anger (the worst kind). I was happy with the story, so very happy, but once Marcella (a new addition AKA the lady on the cover) mutinied and became the star of the show, around the 50% mark, I found myself dreading reading this.I don...
  • Bibi
    🤯 🤯. This book, and its predecessor, is recommended for readers of Fantasy and those who love superheroes. So, basically everyone? RTC.
  • Raeleen Lemay
    Not quite as good as Vicious, sadly. I figure the easiest way to sum up my thoughts is with a couple of handy dandy lists:What I Liked-BACKSTORY. This book gave us tons of backstory on Eli, back to his childhood and his early days at Lockland with Victor. LOVE LOVE LOVED THIS.-New characters. I grew tired of Marcella after a while, but I am head over heels obsessed with June. Her power is so insanely cool, and I would have gladly read a whole boo...

    “You do what you can. You fight, and you win, until you don’t.”BRILLIANT. AMAZING. PERFECTION. THE BEST! I’m so in love with Victoria Schwab. RTC**I just received my signed preorder copy more than one week before its release date!!! That has never happened to me before I am so excited to read it ahhh
  • Eryn
    ⇢ 4 / 5 Oh my, Vengeful was quite a ride; although not as entertaining as Vicious, it did not disappoint and was truly worth the wait.*This review will contain spoilers, here and there, so read at your own risk!*When I heard Schwab was writing a sequel to Vicious, I was enthralled (to say the least). I couldn’t wait to learn more about Victor and Eli; to read more from a favorite author... add that to Vicious being one of my favorite novels a...
  • Maria

  • Noura Khalid (theperksofbeingnoura)
    “Every end is a new beginning.” I can’t put in words how much I adore these books. I would honestly recommend this to every single person in existence.I read Vicious a couple of days ago. I couldn't control myself and dived into this on the weekend. Victoria Schwab managed to give us the most complex story about Villains there is, and I loved every minute of it!█████████████ Ignorance ██████████...
  • Azrah
    I am feeling so many emotions right now. This was AMAZING. Thank you to everyone on Goodreads for hyping VE Schwab. Her work is gold of a discovery for me. I'm so glad I read this series. Review to come Pre-read Rambles My expectations are very high. Life will be hard if this isn't all that I hope it will be. Good vibes this way pleeease XD
  • Gabby
    I am fucking speechless. Vicious is one of my all time favorite books and I was nervous and excited when I heard it was getting a sequel because I was desperately hoping it wouldn't disappoint me. Not only did this book not disappoint me, it blew my expectations right out of the fucking water. This book was SO GOOD. It was action-packed my heart was fucking racing for the entire 490-something pages.Victor Vale is my favorite anti-hero ever. He's ...
