This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab
A couple months ago I picked up another one of her books, but recently, I had been keeping an eye on the upcoming release of this book. When it came out, I made a trip shortly after it's release to pick it up and I didn't put it down till I had finished.
I loved this book. It didn't feel at all like a teen novel to me. Yes, it's about a girl and a boy who are still of high school age. It's about good, evil, monsters, and the troubles of the world. It's dark and exciting, and it draws you into a whole other reality. It's great.
It was a little more violent then I thought it would be, but it didn't bother me. I wasn't really sure what I was expecting but I will say I wasn't disappointed. The characters felt wise and more mature then their age. I had no problems getting into the story.
As for the monsters, they were pretty darn interesting. I love an interesting monster. Perfect amount of cause and effect in this book, that's for sure.
At the time I read it I thought it could make a really cool movie and I am super happy to hear that I'm not the only one as it's now being made into a movie! I couldn't be more excited!
Since finishing this book I have found myself needing to collect her other works. I have two others on my shelf and two others coming in the mail. I just think she is a great person and a great author and one I am happy to support! (pretty darn inspirational too!)
Recommendation: This is for the strange, the dark, the lover of monsters. This is a story about a boy and a girl and how their lives will change everything. This is a book that needs to be read.
