I’m not addressing plot – it’s too much fun to let you travel down that path with the book.
It’s no secret that I love Victoria Schwab. Vicious remains one of the most unique and memorable books I’ve read. TSS was enjoyable – action, an interesting and likable hero, and a really really cool premise. But…for me the book lacked compulsion…charisma…that thing that makes it so I can’t put it down. I expected more oomph in a book with such a cool story idea. It wasn’t that this book was bad – nowhere close to it – it’s just that it lacked that undefinable something. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series, but I don’t feel like I have to read it now.
PS – if you haven’t read Vicious and you’re a fan of the weird, wild and out-there you should check it out.
