Vicious by V.E. Schwab

Vicious by V.E. Schwab

As college students, Victor Vale and Eliot Cardale were close friends with a competitive streak and an undercurrent of disapproval and frustration. They were friends more because they complemented each other in ways no one else could rather than any real affection. For their culminating project, they focus their research on EOs, ExtraOrdinary people with superhuman abilities. Most people are sceptical of the existence of EOs, and so are they until the science starts to make sense. Soon enough, they unlock the secret to becoming an EO, and everything goes south. By the time they are both powered up, a bunch of people are dead, Eli has disappeared, and Victor is locked away in prison.

Tunnel of Bones – Victoria Schwab

Tunnel of Bones – Victoria Schwab

Anything Victoria Schwab touches turns to instant magic. Tunnel of Bones was a delight to read and I preferred this (maybe slightly) more than City of Ghosts, but perhaps that’s just because I’m already used to the characters and didn’t have to get to know them all over again. The book made me want to drive to Paris and watch a ghost show or two (and I might even do the ghost tour part when I’m in Paris at the end of October).
