Title: Warm Up
Author: V. E. Schwab
Series: Villians #0.5
It’s been 297 days since David died–and came back.
He may have survived the avalanche, but the aftermath has been far worse. His wife moved out, taking his son with her, and a devastated David hasn’t left his house since, terrified of the mysterious new power that followed him home from the ill-fated expedition.
After months in seclusion, David’s ready for a fresh start, and ventures out, determined to keep his power in check. But David’s power isn’t the one he needs to worry about.
This is a simple little short story that fits in around the events of Vicious and gives us a little more insight into EOs and Eli’s process. It doesn’t add too much to the overall Lore of the world but it is still a well constructed story and a nice quick read if you have missed the stories of Eli and Victor. I listened to this via Scribd, but it is available free to read on Tor.com
