Taken against his will, Edward Dalton wakes to find himself prisoner to the paramilitary organization that’s haunted his dreams since they left him broken and lost all those years ago.

His captors believe he holds the secret to their success, and they are willing to take it, by any means necessary.

Elizabeth Sterling is a vision of love from a simpler time, but she’s got something to hide. If Dalton can learn to trust her, she might be just the person he needs to save his skin. But is she too late to save his soul?

Meanwhile, Westley Worthington struggles to use his newfound abilities to rescue his friend, and win back the love of his life, Cordelia Cross. Will being Augmented allow him to do both?

Author’s Note:

Building a Hero is a trilogy of full-length novels of 200-300 pages each. It is not a serial with short installments and cliffhangers. Each book has its own, complete story arc. However, like all trilogies, books 1 and 2 do leave some unanswered questions to be resolved in book 3. Thanks for reading!

A space-pirate-in-training, a shape-shifting barbarian with an ancient secret, and a baby boy who just might be the clone of Nikola Tesla… 


Raina yearns for a chance to discover new things in the galaxy, just like the famous explorers she read about as a child back on Earth. But Leif Erikkson and Magellan didn’t have to deal with the pressure of a tough-as-nails pirate captain demanding results, or the distraction of a hot-as-hell alien shadowing her every move. Raina spends her days dreaming of exploring new worlds, and her nights resisting the temptation to explore her budding desires. 

Nick has just awoken from stasis to find himself alone on the luxury cruiser he was hired to defend. He’s looking for answers, but finds something he never expected - his blood mate. Raina is brave and beautiful, and Nick burns for her from the moment he sees her. But it’s hard to trust a human, especially when she is only onboard to steal things. 

When a hostile creature attacks, the two must team up to get themselves to safety, and their growing attraction reaches the boiling point. 

And then they discover a baby whose DNA could change the new world.

Can a baby in a stasis pod rein in Raina’s wanderlust, and give Nick the impetus to trust her? Or are they all going down with the ship?

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
