Review: Vengeful by V.E. Schwab

 

Synopsis

Sydney once had Serena—beloved sister betrayed enemy, powerful ally. But now she is alone, except for her thrice-dead dog, Dol, and then there’s Victor, who thinks Sydney doesn’t know about his most recent act of vengeance.

Victor himself is under the radar these days—being buried and re-animated can strike concern even if one has superhuman powers. But despite his own worries, his anger remains. And Eli Ever still has yet to pay for the evil he has done.

Boy do I love Victor Vale, but that ending…

Review

I loved the new characters that were introduced, Marcella is such a bad-ass.  Everyone on this book including Sydney, arguably the most stereotypically “good” character is still pretty morally grey, and it just goes downhill from there, Victor, Eli, Marcella, and June all of them have very questionable morals and I love it!! 

That being said as much as I loved the Marcella storyline it felt like a really big plot device. I could have done without as much June and more Victor thank you very much! I do think Vicious was a better overall story!  I was also disappointed by the ending of this book.  The ending of Vicious was so perfect that this one just fell a little flat.

Did I still love this book? Heck Yes!  Do I secretly hope there is a third book? YES!!  Did I like think one as much as Vicious?  Nope

 

Bottom Line

I liked it but I just wanted a different ending.  

Overall: 4.5
