Title: This Savage Song
Author: Victoria Schwab
Release date: July 5, 2016
Summary: 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 a 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. In This Savage Song, Victoria Schwab creates a gritty, seethign metropolis, one worth of being compared to Gotham and to the four versions of London in her critically acclaimed fantasy for adults, A Darker Shade of Magic. Her heroes will face monsters intent on destroying them from every side--including the monsters within.
Thoughts: Okay, so I've yet to read any Victoria Schwab at all. But this sounds SO GOOD. Especially with the inclusion of music? Sounds right up my alley. And who knows? Maybe this book will be the one to get me into the world of Victoria Schwab finally!
