Theme: The theme of Villainous stays on the heroic and brave side. It definitely teaches you that even people that have less, or in this case who are "powerless" can still make a huge difference in their society.

Genre: The genre of this book is obviously fiction, but also a mystery with a little drama here and there.

4/5 Star Rating

I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars because it was very action packed and thrilling. Sometimes the topic drifted off of the "superhero" topic and that was a little boring compared to the rest of the story. Other than that the book was phenomenal and kept me on the edge of my seat. Villainous is also an easy, and quick read.


I would recommend this book to anyone that likes a little mystery and suspense. Also, someone obviously interested in superhero fiction and action.
