Review | Vicious by V. E. Schwab

A skillfully-handled, complex plot and a cast of equally complex characters make Vicious another 5-star book from V. E. Schwab.

Vicious by V.E. Schwab book coverWhat it’s about:

I came to this book without knowing anything about the characters or plot and I believe that improved my experience. In my opinion, the official blurb gives far too much away and would make some of the earlier chapters less interesting. However, if you do want some background, you can read the blurb at the bottom of this review. Otherwise, just trust me: this is great.

Review | A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab

A Darker Shade of Magic book cover by V E Schwab

Fantastic, in every sense of the word.

Fantasy fiction fans will love this book. I can’t fault it: 5/5 stars.

My take:

Where to begin? Perhaps with the idea. The idea behind this book is intriguing and elegant. Schwab describes her three Londons (well, there are four, but we don’t see one of them), each in their own sealed pocket of reality, with an admirably confident and consistent logic which carries the reader between them smoothly, letting the characters take the knocks.
