Victoria Schwab has done it again. Her writing is as beautiful as ever, and this may have taken over five years to write, but it was worth every single word.
Victor and Eli are really two of my favorite protagonists. It’s really not easy to get me to support and love characters who are often compared to serial killers (I mean…), but the complexity in which Victoria writes them as individuals is just…amazing. Victor’s new-found family made my heart melt in every scene they were in. June and Marcella, villainous as they may be, are badass women who deserved better. Granted, June is a manipulative bitch but yeah.
What makes Vengeful such an amazing sequel is that it carries forward a lot of what happened from the previous book to answer the questions that left readings hanging in the last. Yet, it carries a lot on its own with its interesting plot and characters. My opinion on Eli definitely changed a lot from Vicious, and although I can’t say I support or condone his actions, I do feel a little bad for him knowing what he’s been through.
This was a really, really great read. Vengeful has been my most anticipated read of 2018, and I’m so happy it went above and beyond my expectations!
