Who Is The Hero Who Is the Evil ?

Vicious - V.E. Schwab

This is hard book to explain without giving anything away. It felt like a superhero, Heroes, Xmen, type story. There are zealots, manipulators, liars, and iffy good guys. Normal humans would undergo a drastic change which would alter them into supernatural beings with powers. It had me glued to the pages never knowing for sure who was the good guy or who was bad. I'm still not 100% sure there is a solid line. The writing was very visual, filling me with wonderful and not so wonderful richly full colored detailed visions of the scenes as they unfolded. It all started with a graveyard digging scene, how can you go wrong with that ?
I loved the book it would make one fantastic movie. Suspense, horror and some small bit of humor. This is not a happy ever after read but it is not all doom and gloom. If you love comics, semi superheroes, and off beat stories this is for you.
