There’s no such thing as safe in a city at war, a city overrun with monsters. In this dark urban fantasy from author Victoria Schwab, a young woman and a young man must choose whether to become heroes or villains—and friends or enemies—with the future of their home at stake. The first of two books.
Kate Harker and August Flynn are the heirs to a divided city—a city where the violence has begun to breed actual monsters. All Kate wants is to be as ruthless as her father, who lets the monsters roam free and makes the humans pay for his protection. All August wants is to be human, as good-hearted as his own father, to play a bigger role in protecting the innocent—but he’s one of the monsters. One who can steal a soul with a simple strain of music. When the chance arises to keep an eye on Kate, who’s just been kicked out of her sixth boarding school and returned home, August jumps at it. But Kate discovers August’s secret, and after a failed assassination attempt the pair must flee for their lives.

I didn’t know what the hype was all about until I saw the second book released just recently. Took out this book and in the first day I was half way through. It was addicting and it moved at a fast pace. It took me a little long to warm up to these characters and the setting. The setting is inter...
So much hype on this novel, I had to see what I had been missing. And now after reading it, I am sitting on the fence deciding whether I should continue reading this series or not. This novel was long, I didn’t feel that much occurred for all the pages that I read. It seems that I just got the story...
I couldn't put this book down. This is one of the best books I've read in quite a while! I really really enjoyed this read! Monster boy angst is my favorite type of prose. And the conflicting emotions about being human or monster is always fun! The cast of characters are very well written and well t...
Victoria Schwab never fails to impress me. Her characters, her worlds, her imagination. Uh, just, I love all of it. So the quick way to sort of sum up This Savage Song is Romeo and Juliet with monsters and no romance. And without the ridiculous ending where the two main characters kill themselves...
