Today's post is part of the blog tour for V.E. (Victoria) Schwab's new release, Vicious.  It's a dark, supervillain-filled tale with mayhem and fantastic surprises.  Vicious was released by Tor (Macmillan) on September 24, 2013.

I don't know how she does it (okay, I have an idea, and I will expound on that below...), but Victoria Schwab, or V.E. SCHWAB as she's known for the adult audience, has the best fans.  And when I say best, I mean most fun.  The people I want to go to happy hour with after work, rather than my actual coworkers.  I know this because I stood in line at Book Expo America 2013 to get a signed advanced reader copy of Vicious, and that crowd was full of jokes, happy chatter, and smart people being extremely pleased and nice.  Maybe you've heard that people elbow each other in the throat to get sought-after books at BEA?  I've seen evidence of violence first-hand.  BUT.  Victoria Schwab's fans are seriously fun, and I think that bodes extremely well for her books.

If genuinely cool people get excited about a book, I need to know what's up.  Don't you?  In Vicious, Schwab's evil-genius of a novel, what's happening is AWESOME STORY.  Stay tuned to the end of the post for a chance to win one of three copies of the book!  Along the same line, Victoria has created Vicious trading cards, and you can check out her post to win a set for yourself.

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?
