Book: Vengeful
Series: Villains #2
Author: VE Schwab 

Sydney once had Serena—beloved sister, betrayed enemy, powerful ally. But now she is alone, except for her thrice-dead dog, Dol, and then there's Victor, who thinks Sydney doesn't know about his most recent act of vengeance.

Victor himself is under the radar these days—being buried and re-animated can strike concern even if one has superhuman powers. But despite his own worries, his anger remains. And Eli Ever still has yet to pay for the evil he has done.-Goodreads

Review: Absolute perfection. VE Schwab proves once again why she is one of the best urban fantasy authors writing today. I loved the first book in this duology and was hesitant to read this one right away (because let's face it, many times the sequel doesn't live up to expectations) but I loved this. There is nothing new or revolutionary in this series in terms of the supernatural element, but Schwab really shines creating multi faceted characters.  She also managed to make me feel some sympathy towards Eli, which I didn't think was possible. 

His eyes met Victor’s, and for a second neither man moved.
Run, thought Victor, and he could see the response in Eli’s coiled frame.
Chase me.

Grade: 5/5
