Book Review: Vengeful (Villains 2), by V. E. Schwab

Vengeful was certainly an interesting book. Be aware that this is the second and final book in the short series Villains- the first book being Vicious which I have written a review on so be sure to check that out! 

To start off, I would give it a solid eight out of ten. This book is definitely aimed towards older teenagers and adults and was quite a shock for me to read. The first book, although having strong language was appropriate enough for eighth grade and up but this book had much more innuendo and language so I would say tenth grade and up. 

Now looking at it from the plot and book point of view it was very interesting and kept up from the first book- the characters all complex the plot being enticing and entrancing. The book is hard to put down and is the perfect dark action book for any teenager. 

As the two college students, Eli and Victor, turn to rivals, time skips to where they now face off as adults. More characters are thrown in and there is a new dangerous EO (extra-ordinary) in town. In a competition to fight to the top these characters all face off on this strenuous climb.

This book opened me up to all sorts of different topics, and it may be a bit darker than most fantasy/sci-fi books but really can have people contemplating the meaning of power, and how life and death can affect us all. For people interested in this genre, and even those who aren’t, it is definitely worth the try!

Have a good read!

  1. This sounds like an amazing book! I’m in seventh grade, but love reading books for all ages–even books for adults. I also love sci-fi and fantasy . . . I’ll be sure to check this one out! Thanks for the review!
