My best friend Jennifer and I read This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab as both a buddy read and as our pick for the Femme Trash Book Club featured on our podcast. We had a great time with this and hope you guys do, too, whenever you read it.
Ever since Vicious, I’ve been besotted with Victoria Schwab. I love how often and how well she writes about monsters and villains. Oh, boy, do I!
This Savage Song follows Kate Harker, daughter of the terrifying and powerful Callum Harker who rules North City and offers his protection from the monsters–for a price. In South City, we have August Flynn, a Sunai monster who looks human but is all too aware that he isn’t, even after Henry Flynn takes him in.
With the Corsai and Malchai siding with Harker and the Sunai siding with Flynn, Verity is locked in an uneasy truce and a gang war that’s about to errupt, and Kate and August find themselves caught in the middle.
