This book felt really pointless to me, and I already dislike V.E. Schwab's writing style so this book was a recipe for disaster for me.

Overall Thoughts:
⁕ The nonlinear delivery of the story contributed to such a heightened sense of anticipation and tension. By the final chapters, I was TEARING through the book to get to the resolution.

⁕ Victor and Eli are deliciously flawed and the amoral, anti-heroes of every reader’s dreams.

⁕ I’ve read a lot of reviews saying that this book gives off similar vibes as the Amazon show The Boys. While I agree that it has similar character types, I will say this book is MUCH LESS intense in terms of gore and violence. It’s still there, but if you go in with expectations of high shock value scenes, you will probably be dissatisfied.

The pacing at the beginning of the book was pretty slow. It seemed as though the author was trying to avoid writing just an origin story and instead telling that origin through flashbacks. But this led to every single thing that would have been mysterious, such as whether they will actually become ExtraOrdinaries or what certain character’s powers are, being easily spotted chapters before the big “reveal.” The ending was great, going from about the middle of the book onward, but the beginning was underwhelming.
