TOR Books And V. E. Swchab Unveil Official Cover Of 'Vengeful' (Second Book In Villains Trilogy)

Among the many books that I am really looking forward to V. E Swchab's second book in the Villains trilogy is on the top of the list. The second book is titled Vengeful and is a direct follow-up to Vicious. I am regularly checking up for updates especially about the official cover, and finally it has come.

The art for the official cover of the book was crafted by artist Will Staehle, who also did the covers of Shade of Magic books, and was art directed by Irene Gallo. The cover looks very different from the original cover of Vicious (art by Victo Ngai), which is by the way equally beautiful, but for those who have OCD like me -- no need to worry becasue a redesign is also underway to satiate your quest for uniformity.

Check out the cover of Vengeful by V. E. Schwab.

For comparison, here is the redesigned cover of Vicious by V. E. Schwab.

From the author of A Darker Shade of Magic comes Vengeful, the highly-anticipated sequel to V. E. Schwab's debut adult novel Vicious, a masterful tale of ambition, jealousy, and superpowers.

A super-powered battle of genius, cruelty, and the lengths one will go for vengeance―V. E. Schwab returns with the end to the Villains duology.

Magneto and Professor X. Superman and Lex Luthor. Victor Vale and Eli Ever.

Sydney Clarke once had Serena―beloved sister, betrayed enemy, powerful ally. But now she's alone, except for her thrice-dead dog, Dol. And then there's Victor, who thinks Sydney doesn't know about his most recent act of vengeance.

Victor himself is under the radar these days―being buried and re-animated can strike concern even if one has superhuman powers. But despite his own worries, his anger remains.

And Eli Ever still has yet to pay for the evil he has done.

Vicious by V. E. Schwab will be released on September 25, 2018.
