Review: Vengeful

If you haven’t read V.E. Schwab’s Vicious yet, then you simply MUST. Not only is it an incredible work of fiction, but after a four and half year wait, it has a sequel, Vengeful.

When I heard about A Darker Shade of Magic (ADSOM) I was really intrigued. I’ve not read any of V.E. Schwab’s work before (I hear Vicious is […]
