Review Quotes:

\”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

\”A fun, morally-flexible revenge tale…\”Vicious\” methodically ratchets up the tension as Victor and Eli circle each other for the inevitable kill.
–Daniel H. Wilson, NYT bestselling author of \”Robopocalypse

\”Schwab gathers all the superhero/supervillain tropes and turns them on their sundry heads…. I could not put it down.\”
–F. Paul Wilson, \”New York Times \”bestselling author of the Repairman Jack series

\”Vicious \”is dark and intricate and daring, twisting back and forth through time and morality and life and death until you can’t turn the pages fast enough. I loved it.\”
–Dan Wells, author of \”I Am Not a Serial Killer

\”An epic collision of super-powered nemeses. The writing and storycraft is Schwab’s own superpower as this tale leaps off the page in all its dark, four-color comic-book glory.\”
–Chuck Wendig, author of \”Blackbirds \”
