Kort biografi
Victoria (V. E.) Schwab (born July 7, 1987) is an American fantasy author best known for her 2013 novel Vicious, the Shades of Magic series, and for her children's and young adult fiction published under the name Victoria Schwab.

The Guardian called Vicious "a brilliant exploration of the superhero mythos and a riveting revenge thriller". It received a starred review from Publishers Weekly, which also named the novel one of its best books of 2013 for SF/Fantasy/Horror. The American Library Association's Reference and User Services Association likewise awarded it the top fantasy book in their 2014 Reading List. In late 2013 the rights for a film adaptation of Vicious were bought jointly by Story Mining & Supply Co and Ridley Scott's Scott Free Productions.

In 2014 Schwab signed a two-book deal with Tor Books. Her next novel, A Darker Shade of Magic, was published in February 2015 and also received a starred review from Publishers Weekly. "Vicious" and the Shades of Magic series are published by Tor Books. In 2017, she signed another book deal with Tor for the sequel to Vicious, Vengeful; a new trilogy set called “Threads of Power” in the same world as the Shades of Magic series; and a Blade-Runner inspired book called "Black Tabs."

In May 2018, Schwab gave the sixth annual Tolkien Lecture at Pembroke College, Oxford.



The idea of the story was amazing, but I just felt like the book could have been so much better than it was. It was a bit slow, I thought.

The epic battle between Eli(lawful evil) vs Victor (neutral evil) continues with even bigger threats (Marcella and the emergence of EON) and even more of the same plot points from the last novel.

*Light Spoilers Below* *Light Spoilers Below*

    An organization/mercenary type person is hunting Extra Ordinary people (mutants)

    Victor, Sydney and Mitch are on the run.

    A unforeseeable problem makes it incredibly complicated for the trio to stay hidden.

    Victor must stop blank in order to stop Eli to save Sydney.

    Cool shit happens in between.

*End of Light Spoilers*

Despite knowing all this I still had fun reading it and I instead to continue reading anything written by V.E. Schwab. I like having fun when I'm reading. I'll probably not continue with this series though, it is getting kind of stale unfortunately. If you like the first one though you will most likely enjoy this one as well.

This was the best out of the three! The ending was great. Everything wrapped up so perfectly. I already miss Kell, Lila, Rhy, and Alucard. This definitely wasn't my favorite series, but it was so enjoyable.
