Vicious (Vicious #1) 03, Feb

Rating: 4 stars

Genre: Urban Fantasy, Science Fiction, Paranormal, Adult

 Vicious (adj.):

1) Having the nature or quality of vice or immorality.

2) Dangerously aggressive, marked by violence or ferocity.

3) Victor Vale.

Two unlikable characters.  Stupid, completely avoidable mistakes.  I would be hard pressed to think of another book where this combination would work but A Darker Shade of Magic pulls it off and is therefore a rare book that lives up to its reputation.
