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.

Der zweite Teil hat deutliche Längen. Außerdem finde ich die rasante Entwicklung von Lila nicht wirklich glaubwürdig. Da ich trotzdem meistens gut unterhalten war, und auch immernoch Lust auf den dritten Teil habe, gibt es solide 3 Sterne.

Eigentlich hat es mir gut gefallen, auf jeden Fall wieder besser als der 2. Teil. Trotzdem hatte es - zumindest als Hörbuch - für mich doch deutliche Längen. Aktuell bin ich ganz glücklich, dass es zu Ende ist.
Lila mag ich sehr, mein Liebling in diesem Band ist aber der undurchschaubare Holland. Bis kurz vor Schluss bleibt offen, ob man ihm trauen darf.
Das Ende wäre auch noch für einen 4. Teil gut, ob ich den allerdings noch hören (oder lesen) würde, weiss ich nicht genau.

3,5 gut verdiente Sterne für dieses Buch, von mir aktuell abgerundet, weil mir das Ende so lang wurde...… (mais)

Dieses Buch hat mir mal wieder so richtig Spaß gemacht. Besonders die Tatsache, dass es keinen "eindeutig" Bösen oder Guten gibt, gefällt mir sehr! Eli begeht böse Taten (aus vermeintlich guten Motiven), und Victor, der vermeintlich böse, ist menschlich und gut zu Mitch und Sydney.
Schon die Idee, wie Menschen mit Superkräften - so genannte ExtraOrdinäre - "entstehen", finde ich faszinierend und plausibel. Ich mag es sehr, wenn in der normalen Welt übernatürliche Sachen passieren.
Ich freue mich schon auf den 2. Teil, für den ersten gibt es klare 5 Sterne!… (mais)
