This is book number 1 in the Monsters of Verity series.
This book was the perfect way to get out of summer and into fall monster stories. I think what I enjoyed most was that the monsters in this series were actually scary. And let’s not forget that lovely little song about them that children like to sing which was the perfect touch of creepy to make you shiver. August, the type of monster feared the most, and Kate, the girl who could stare down a grizzly, were the perfect duo in this sort of dystopian monster story. In this world monsters are paid off to play nice, or so they were until bodies start showing up and someone new is calling the shots.— Jess
In this dark urban fantasy from acclaimed 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 homes at stake. There's no such thing as safe in a city at war; a city overrun with monsters.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, who uses his power to protect the innocent. Thrown together by a crumbling truce and a failed assassination attempt, Kate and August must flee to save themselves. In This Savage Song, Victoria Schwab creates her own dark metropolis, worthy of being compared to Gotham. But it's not superheroes who will save this city--it's two teenagers. This Savage Song begins a two-book saga about finding where we belong, and becoming who we are meant to be.
