A masterful tale of ambition, jealousy, desire, and superpowers.

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.

Ten years later, Victor breaks out of prison, determined to catch up to his old friend (now foe), aided by a young girl whose reserved nature obscures a stunning ability. Meanwhile, Eli is on a mission to eradicate every other super-powered person that he can find—aside from his sidekick, an enigmatic woman with an unbreakable will. Armed with terrible power on both sides, driven by the memory of betrayal and loss, the archnemeses have set a course for revenge—but who will be left alive at the end?

In Vicious, V. E. Schwab brings to life a gritty comic-book-style world in vivid prose: a world where gaining superpowers doesn't automatically lead to heroism, and a time when allegiances are called into question.

"A dynamic and original twist on what it means to be a hero and a villain. A killer from page one...highly recommended!" —Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Marvel Universe vs The Avengers and Patient Zero


One of Publishers Weekly's Best Fantasy Books of 2013

Muscle Wars is an insider’s account of the sport, the business, and the stars of competitive bodybuilding. In the last twenty-five years bodybuilding has become America’s fastest-growing sport with over 5 million hard-core fans. Now Rick

Wayne, himself a bodybuilding champion and longtime journalist for Joe Weider’s Flex and Muscle & Fitness, tells the inside story of the fights, feuds, and friendships that have shaped the sport.

Muscle Wars is crammed with fascinating stories, such as how Arnold Schwarzenegger psyched defending titlist Sergio Oliva into walking off the stage during their dramatic confrontation for the 1970 Mr. Olympia crown. Here are riveting sketches of the sport’s dominating personalities from Larry Scott and the legendary Oliva to Franco Columbu, Frank Zane, and Schwarzenegger, and - backstage - Ben and Joe Weider.

Included is the real story behind the blistering controversy of the 1990 Mr. Olympia held in Sydney, Australia, and the contest held the following year in Columbus, Ohio, called by Wayne “The Greatest Booing Contest of All Time.” Muscle Wars provides wickedly entertaining backstage gossip as well as inside accounts of the controversies that have marked and occasionally almost wrecked the International Federation of Bodybuilding.

Already hailed (and assailed) as the Rex Reed of bodybuilding,Wayne writes with bite and panache. Not since Pumping Iron has there been such a revealing look at the world of bodybuilding and the remarkable, temperamental characters who are its stars.
