KATE HARKER isn’t afraid of monsters. She hunts them. And she’s good at it.

AUGUST FLYNN once yearned to be human. He has a part to play. And he will play it, no matter the cost.



Kate will have to return to Verity. August will have to let her back in. And a new monster is waiting—one that feeds on chaos and brings out its victims’ inner demons.

Which will be harder to conquer: the monsters they face, or the monsters within?


First of i can admit that i liked this more than the first one, the main characters had developed and grown up. This book picks up some months after the savage song where August is fulfilling his duty by ripping out those who have wronged others violently and Kate is now a monster ( partly ) and is fighting along . We get to see both of their inner fights and struggles thru the book. August struggles with his duty and what he believes is right and Kate fights her demons and struggling to keep them away . Kate was a real badass in this book!

August and Kate’s friendship was one of the most beautiful thing of this series. They were both exactly what the other one needed, here to support and care for each other despite being complete opposite and natural enemies at first. August needed Kate to realise who he was could live along what he was. Kate needed August to open her eyes on the world and on what she truly wanted.

I have some questions that has annoyed me ,  why do we get introduced to a group of new characters just to complete disregard them later. We don’t know what happened to them after Kate left or if they ever found out what happened to her.  AND that fucking ending, like WHYY did that character had to die???!!! ( i aint gonna tell u who ofc, but sry for spoilers)

The characters that schwab creates are so complex and distinct and likeable and alive, you can’t even stop yourself from falling in love with a fucking cat, like, give me a break.

This book was dark af and I love it. Victoria Schwab knows how to write a damn good book and they can get right under your skin and then break you into a million pieces. just accept the fact that you sign up for pain and suffering every time you buy a book by victoria schwab. reading schwab books equals signing a contract with the devil and honestly?? selling my soul was worth it. 10/10 would do it again, lol.

So the final question is, do i recommend you to read this book? HELL YEAH, READ IT!

I give this book 4/5 stars

This Savage Song


Titel: This Savage Song

Handling: There’s no such thing as safe in a city at war, a city overrun with monsters. In this dark urban fantasy from 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 home at stake. The first of two books.

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, 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.

Omdöme:  Innan jag läste denna bok jag hade höga förväntningar eftersom jag har hört så många bra saker om Schwabs andra böcker . Början var lite långsam och efter 200 sidor blev berättelsen riktigt bra och intressant .

Jag förväntade mig inte att huvudkaraktärerna skulle vara så som dom var i boken, men jag gillade Kate och August ändå om det inte var vad jag hade föreställt mig. Dom hade en fantastisk dynamik och jag älskade att se deras interaktioner. Kate gick mig dock på nerverna i början när hon ”försökte” vara lika hemsk som sin far, det störde jag mig på. Antingen är man hemsk eller så är man inte. Men hon blev bättre och växte i mina ögon genom hela boken. Samma sak med August, i början kändes han så himla rädd och hade inget självförtroende alls kändes det som. Fast man föreställde honom som en mäktig, stolt och orädd kille. Han växte också i boken och omfamnade sitt sanna jag tillslut. 

Jag älskade att det inte var någon romantik i denna bok , oftast är det alltid något romantiskt mellan huvudpersonerna . I detta fall var det ingen romantik alls och jag tyckte det var bra för vem fan tänker på romantik när de är i fara .. ?

Jag visste inte när jag läste den här boken om det var en fristående eller en serie / trilogi / duology, i slutändan vara det en serie . Jag är så lättad jag behöver läsa mer om denna coola värld och sjävklart Kate och August. Jag rekommenderar dig att läsa ”This Savage Song” om du gillar fantasy. 

jag ger den    3,5
