Synopsis: Victor and Eli started out as college roommates brilliant, arrogant, lonely boys who recognized the same ambition in each other. A shared interest in adrenaline, near-death experiences, and seemingly supernatural events reveals an intriguing possibility: that under the right conditions, someone could develop extraordinary abilities. But when their thesis moves from the academic to the experimental, things go horribly wrong. Ten years later, Victor breaks out of prison, determined to catch up to his old friend (now foe), aided by a young girl with a stunning ability. Meanwhile, Eli is on a mission to eradicate every other super-powered person that he can find aside from his sidekick, an enigmatic woman with an unbreakable will. Armed with terrible power on both sides, driven by the memory of betrayal and loss, the arch-nemeses have set a course for revenge but who will be left alive at the end?
If you think the villains are always the bad guy, then you’re wrong…
My oh my this book is just everything. I honestly think this book is just everything. I think this is definitely my favourite Victoria Schwab book, because it is just so amazing.
I absolutely adore the story – it is so unique and clearly well thought out. I have always been the one to love the villain but this is just perfect.
I absolutely adore Victor and his tough yet honest nature. The relationship between him and Eli is probably one of my favourites of any book. They bounce off each other so well, I love their dynamic.
I also like how their personalities are the opposite of each other it felt like good vs evil. I also couldn’t help but love Victor and how interacted with every single character.
The magic system was absolutely genius. I love their evolution story and honestly couldn’t put it down from the minute I started it. I am still completely blown away by it and I am SO excited that we have another book in the series!
I can’t wait for book 2!
