My review of this book isn’t that savage.
This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab takes place in a divided city filled with monsters. Kate Harker lives on the side where her father rules by making citizens buy their protection and controlling the monsters. August, one of the monsters, lives on the other side of the city that wishes to protect the innocent. After a plot to kill them, Kate and August find themselves on the run.
This Savage Song is a really hyped and well-liked book in the young adult community. I can why some people like aspects of this story, however, it wasn’t for me. This Savage Song is beautifully written and the author does a great job in building the world in a way that is understandable for readers. Additionally, this book is fast-paced and action-packed, especially towards the end of the book. However, I’m not particularly a fan of stories that involve monsters and I personally can’t see myself picking up the second book. Due to my interests, I found that I wasn’t invested on the characters or the story line enough to finish this duology.
I give This Savage Song three out of five stars.
