This Savage Song (Monsters of Verity, #1) ~Review

“I mean, most people want to escape. Get out of their heads. Out of their lives. Stories are the easiest way to do that.” 

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 Schwaba 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.

I read a book without romance. What? If you've been reading Colorado Cozy you'll know that it doesn't happen often if ever. But I did it. I picked up a non romance related story and loved it. Not only did I love it, I pre-order the sequel the day I finished book one! 

This Savage Song was incredible. The ideas surrounding the monsters was so original, and the writing stile, so pristine. I loved this! (Love count: 3) This book was totally different from anything I've ever read before. I feel like you need to go into it, not knowing much. Half the fun was figuring things out as you went. Victoria Schwab is an incredible author and I need to pick up more books by her. 

The characters in this story were so well developed in my opinion. I felt like each one had the time taken to develop them and have us understand them. Each one has a little piece of my heart now, I love them all. 

The plot was action packed and so creative! I loved it!!! (Love count: 5). This Savage Song is a total page turner, you'll be on the edge of your seat, eagerly waiting for what happens next. Although the story ends with a slight cliff hanger, it's not too bad. The cliff hanger just leaves room for another story to develop, it's like the stinger at the end of a marvel movie after all the credits. It's just teasing you to read the next one. WHICH I AM SO PUMPED FOR! By the time this review is posted, the sequel will probably already be out, so you'll be able to just scoop up Our Dark Duet. WHICH YOU SHOULD TOTALLY DO! 

I would definitely recommend This Savage Song to anyone, romance lover or not. FIVE STARS!!!!! I loved this book so much!

Total Love count: 6 (Not as bad as I was expecting)
