Vicious (Vicious #1) von V.E. Schwab
Victor and Eli started out as college roommates - brilliant, arrogant, lonely boys who recognized the same sharpness and ambition in each other. In their senior year, a shared research 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.
The moments that define lives aren't always obvious. They don't always scream LEDGE, and nine times out of ten there's no rope to duck under, no line to cross, no blood pact, no official letter on fancy paper. They aren't always protracted, heavy with meaning. Between one sip and the next, Victor made the biggest mistake of his life, and it was made of nothing more than one line. Three small words.
"I'll go first."
Während ich Vicious gelesen habe, bin ich nicht umhin gekommen, mental einen Vergleich zu Six of Crows zu ziehen. Beide fühlen sich an, wie ein Actionfilm mit Fantasy-Elementen (wenn auch eine andere Art von Actionfilm und eine andere Art von Fantasy). Und beides ist einfach nur cool zu lesen.
