I think it would have been a 5 star book, like the first one if I wasn't busy the week I was reading it, which definitely didn't help with the pace. But thats a me problem. Honestly the characters are so complex and hateable but I also love each of them so much.
Spoiler I loved how some deaths were so impacting even though in the pace of the fight they were almost 'skipped over which really made you shocked and feel in the moment.
Spoiler Uh I need a 3rd one.

this was excellent! i can’t even decide whether i’m team victor or team eli…i find myself being kind of both. though, victor is definitely my favorite character. i did love that we got eli’s backstory. personally, there were mixed emotions because it made me like him more but also he’s a serial killer so i probably shouldn’t…
i can’t forget to mention mitch, sydney, and dom. i thought they were quite the team! i loved them all together with victor tbh.
as for the new characters we got introduced to, i really liked june and marcella. i thought they were a great addition to the story. marcella was for sure the most badass out of everyone. june was cool too, especially her power. she was just a tad bit annoying when it came to her friendship with sydney.

and if we are getting a third book…i’m so curious to see how this could all play out omg!!

The perfect sequel to an amazing first novel. Schwab has this ability to write stories within stories and tell them with masterful writing and a plot that runs through said writing like water. Each new character blended beautifully with the originals, and they all matured so much within this book. Eli had such a good “redemption,” Victor and June learned what family meant, Marcella took the power she deserved... I can’t. They’re all so wonderfully twisted. My little murderers are amazing and this better not be the end of the Villains universe. Schwab has yet to write a book that I didn’t absolutely love.

Blew through this one just like I did with Vicious. Even though she's
Spoiler the main villain, I really loved Marcella's character
. I felt like her motivations were very clear and as a woman reading this, honestly pretty relatable at times. I also enjoyed getting some more insight into Eli and other major characters. Fast read, fun plot, interesting characters, and well written, what more do you need? 

The ending felt almost unfinished! Is there another book coming out??
