About this Series
#1 New York Times bestselling author V. E. Schwab brings to life a gritty, comic-book-style world in vivid prose: a world where gaining superpowers doesn’t automatically lead to heroism, and a time when allegiances are called into question.
Once united by their ambitions, Victor and Eli now face off from opposite sides of the law: the first is fresh out of prison, the latter is working with the police. But Eli–the “good guy”–and his partner Serena are hunting down everyone else with superpowers, and Victor and his companion Sydney are pursuing revenge instead of the greater good. Friends turned foes and sisters turned sworn enemies will plumb the depths of cruelty in their quests for retribution.
“Schwab’s characters feel vital and real, never reduced to simple archetypes… In a genre that tends toward the flippant or pretentious, this is a rare superhero novel as epic and gripping as any classic comic. Schwab’s tale of betrayal, self-hatred, and survival will resonate with superhero fans as well as readers who have never heard of Charles Xavier or Victor von Doom.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review
