The world is full of monsters, monsters that kill brutally, sly ones and monsters that can steal your soul with a song.
The city of Verity is divided in two factions: on one side the Harker’s that have made a pact with the monsters and provide safety for money and favours, on the other the Flynn’s, who try to kill the monsters and provide a safe life to people.
Kate Harker and August Flynn are the two heirs, Kate would like to be ruthless like her father, August instead is a monster and would only want to be human.
Kate and August meet at school, and soon they are involved in plots bigger than them: someone is trying to break the truce between the two parts of the city, and what’s better than kill an heir and blame the other one? Kate and August ends up running from the city without certainty on who is to trust of their families.
I already read and loved the Shades of Magic series and Vicious by the same author, both adult books, This Savage Song is a YA novel where fantasy and adventure meets, engaging and fast paced (maybe it’s not as good as Shades of Magic, but I dont’ complain).
* This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab ★★★★☆
