Lyhyt elämäkerta
Victoria (V. E.) Schwab (born July 7, 1987) is an American fantasy author best known for her 2013 novel Vicious, the Shades of Magic series, and for her children's and young adult fiction published under the name Victoria Schwab.

The Guardian called Vicious "a brilliant exploration of the superhero mythos and a riveting revenge thriller". It received a starred review from Publishers Weekly, which also named the novel one of its best books of 2013 for SF/Fantasy/Horror. The American Library Association's Reference and User Services Association likewise awarded it the top fantasy book in their 2014 Reading List. In late 2013 the rights for a film adaptation of Vicious were bought jointly by Story Mining & Supply Co and Ridley Scott's Scott Free Productions.

In 2014 Schwab signed a two-book deal with Tor Books. Her next novel, A Darker Shade of Magic, was published in February 2015 and also received a starred review from Publishers Weekly. "Vicious" and the Shades of Magic series are published by Tor Books. In 2017, she signed another book deal with Tor for the sequel to Vicious, Vengeful; a new trilogy set called “Threads of Power” in the same world as the Shades of Magic series; and a Blade-Runner inspired book called "Black Tabs."

In May 2018, Schwab gave the sixth annual Tolkien Lecture at Pembroke College, Oxford.

Ehh, it’s ok. The start was too slow moving for me, only picking up right near the end. I feel like there was a lot more that could have been done that I was hoping and expecting that never happened. Gives off similar vibes to Coraline if that’s ur thing. Overall idk if I would recommend it.

Excellent character dynamics, an interesting/unique world, and a twist I did not see coming. I think the explanation and reveal of how this world is and how the powers work left a little to be desired - without saying anything too specific, something in this universe would be casually mention, but not explained until much later and that delay didn’t seem to be imperative to the plot. Overall, I did love this book though and will definitely be reading the sequel.

The idea of the story was amazing, but I just felt like the book could have been so much better than it was. It was a bit slow, I thought.
