This Savage Song is a book which I've been dying to read from the moment I first heard about it. Inspired by my favourite quote from my favourite book ( Plenty of humans were monstrous, and plenty of monsters knew how to play at being human - Vicious ) and written by all time favourite author, this book had everything that would make a story my favourite, and it makes me super happy to tell you that This Savage Song didn't disappoint, rather delivered much more than my expectations!
Verity is a city which is overruled by monsters. A city which is divided because of its different approach in dealing with said monsters. The South fights them, tries to keep the city away from crime, while the North embraces the monsters, or rather, the man who controls the North does. Enter Kate Harker, the rebellious daughter of Callum Harker, who mans the North, and August Flynn, the adopted son of Henry Flynn, the man who dedicates his life to keep the South devoid of monsters. Their lives couldn't be any more different, but they find themselves entangled in each others' fates, and embark on a journey full of thrill, danger, revelations and the answer to the paradoxical reality of the humanity in monsters and the monsters who wear a clever disguise of humans.
