  1. Loved the book when it first came out, happy to see a new cover and a second book to follow up.

  2. /gently kicks your door down/
    i don’t know who i need to sacrifice the goats to in order to get this but give me a name and i will get started.

  3. I was at NYCC and there was a young girl telling her dad how much she loved Victoria’s books. I noted to her Dad that the author was standing right over there , and I pointed. The girl was agog. She was locked in place. No I can’t possibly meet her she kept saying, it’s “HER”! The girl turned away. Victoria was doing a walk-by of the booth to sign copies of her book. Nothing formal. I walked over to V and mentioned the young girl. V walked over and the 2 chatted for a bit, she took a pic with her and possible a book was given. dad gave me a thumbs up! And the girl was illuminated!

  4. This edition is so gorgeous and Vicious is one of my fave books. I can’t wait to finally get a copy of my own and this cover is amazing.
