I HAVE NO IDEA WHY I WAS SITTING ON THIS BOOK FOR MONTHS AND NOT READING IT, BECAUSE I AM SO IN LOVE I DON’T KNOW HOW TO PROCESS ANYTHING ANYMORE.
“Good and bad were weak words. Monsters didn’t care about intentions or ideals. The facts were simple. The South was chaos. The North was order. It was order bought and paid for with blood and fear, but order all the same.”
VICTORIA SCHWAB IS A GODDESS, OKAY? She managed to take the EVER RISING levels of violence in the world and tuned the CONSEQUENCE of it all into something scarier – that VIOLENCE BREEDS MONSTERS, combined into a Romeo and Juliet love story and THIS IS SO FUCKING INGENIOUS, I CAN’T EVEN.
It took me a while to get past the first 10% of the book, because it was slow paced and I kept restarting and stopping for MONTHS, and then I just FELL. Like August, everything else about the world became black and this book was all I had, I needed to EAT UP, because my hunger to know everything was INSATIABLE.
Also, if someone would be kind enough to just BUILD A TIME MACHINE ALREADY so I can read book two, I would be SO GREATFUL.
What is This Savage Song all about?
Kate Harker has only wanted one thing – to get back to the city filled with monsters. To get back to all she has left – her father, Callum Harker. The man who makes people pay for protection, the one with monsters following his orders.
August Flynn was born from nothing. August Flynn is a monster – one of the three rarest. Born from acts of incomprehensible acts of violence, the Sunai are the cosmic balance, and their only food is the souls of the sinners that created monsters.
Living on either side of the Seam, they are the children of warring families. The Harker’s that believe in money and fear and the Flynn’s with their task force to protect the innocents and kill the sinners and monsters. But when the monsters start to overpower the men, nothing in Verity is ever the same.
LIKE I SAID BEFORE, THIS BOOK IS LIFE ITSELF AND SO BLOODY BEAUTIFUL.
Now, please excuse me while I go away and read another VE Schwab book!
5 BEAUTIFUL STARS.
