V.E. Schwab

Victoria (V.E.) Schwab is an American author of over 20 novels for children, teens, and adults. She wrote the acclaimed Shades of Magic series, the Villains series, the Cassidy Blake series, and the international bestseller The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue.

Her works have received critical acclaim, translated into over two dozen languages, and optioned for television and film.

Victoria Elizabeth Schwab was born in California and grew up in Nashville, Tennessee. She went to an all-girls Southern preparatory school.

Schwab holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Washington University in St. Louis. She originally planned to study astrophysics but changed direction after taking courses in art and literature. Before graduating, she sold her debut novel, The Close Witch, to Disney.

Since 2011, V.E. Schwab has published over 20 books, including several short stories and graphic novels.

Her real success was her novel Vicious, a fantasy novel focused around two college students who learn how to create superhuman abilities and later become archenemies. Publishers Weekly named the novel one of its best books of 2013 for Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror.

The rights for a film adaptation of Vicious were bought jointly by Story Mining & Supply Co and Ridley Scott's Scott Free Productions.
The sequel to Vicious, titled Vengeful, came out in 2018.

First Kill (2020), a YA vampire series based on Schwab's short story of the same name and produced by Emma Roberts' Belletrist Productions, is currently in production on Netflix.

Grey for the magic-less city.

Red, for the healthy empire.

White, for the starving world.

Such is the quandary when it comes to magic, that it is not an issue of strength but of balance. For too little power, and we become weak. Too much, and we become something else entirely.

Such an amazing experience of a book, there is something so beautiful about the story, the writing style, the words used in every sentence, and the depth in which they aim to have. I cannot describe with words how I feel about this novel, but I can say that the story of Addie LaRue will be remembered by many.
