Summary: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?
Okay, I read this because my high fae lovely friend recommended it. Gotta thank her lots.
This book was something… out of my comfort zone. I usually don’t enjoy books without a bit of romance in them. I need to have a special mood to get into them, but I didn’t have any problem to fall in love with this book.
2 psychos in a war. between them. We get a free journey in their ‘interesting’ heads.
When I was reading, I always asked myself who I sympathised more. One psycho or the other psycho?
The best part was the moment I started to anticipate what they’re were going to do next.
Eli is my sweetheart (the biggest killer, my precious crazy boy)
The end put a stop to a pretty good ‘would have been’ series, but in a way, I am glad. Don’t you hate when something stretches, stretches, stretches?
If you are sick of sweethearts and ready to open up with a book full of action, Vicious is your choice. It is not brutal… it’s balanced. Epicness.
