'Vicious' isn't your typical superhero story

Author Victoria Schwab discusses magic in real life, human imperfection, and taking a unique look at the superhero origin story.

Victoria Schwab has written several young adult novels, but Vicious is her first book for an adult audience.

While Vicious is a superhero origin story, Schwab’s take is unique, exploring the possibility of magic in an otherwise reality-driven world.

Schwab spoke with WCQS reporter Greta Johnsen before coming to Asheville on her book release tour.
