This week I am waiting on
This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab
Publication Date: June 7th 2016
The city of Verity has been overrun with monsters, born from the worst of human evil. In North Verity, the Corsai and the Malchai run free. Under the rule of Callum Harker, the monsters kill any human who has not paid for protection. In the South, Henry Flynn hunts the monsters who cross the border into his territory, aided by the most dangerous and darkest monsters of them all—the Sunai, dark creatures who use music to steal their victim’s souls.
As one of only three Sunai in existence, August Flynn has always wanted to play a bigger role in the war between the north and the south. When the chance arises to keep an eye on Kate Harker, daughter of the leader of North Verity, August jumps on it.
When Kate discovers August’s secret, the pair find themselves running for their lives and battling monsters from both sides of the wall. As the city dissolves into chaos, it’s up to them to foster a peace between monsters and humans.
A unique, fast-paced adventure that looks at the monsters we face every day—including the monster within.
2016 is without a doubt going to be a busy year for Victoria Schwab. Not only will we be gifted with the much anticipated sequel to A Darker Shade of Magic, A Gathering of Shadows, we will also be treated to this wonderful book. This Savage Song is the first book in the Monsters of Verity duology and I am so excited for this book. From the summary it sounds like we’re going to be treated to a lot of monsters, violence and one hell of an adventure. Schwab has this ability to create morally ambiguous characters that are so unpredictable and yet very lovable. You can’t help but root for her characters and I have feeling This Savage Song will be no different. Bring on 2016.
What’s your most anticipated book?
