This Savage Song, by Victoria Schwab


(Review taken from http://literaryweaponry.com)

Let me just start off by saying that I love Schwab. Her Darker Shade of Magic books are some of the most amazing things I have ever had the privilege of reading. So, you can imagine, that when I decided to pick up This Savage Song as an audio book that I was expecting the same pull that I had found from her before. In this case, I didn’t. I wanted to point out that while the story didn’t exactly tick my boxes, it was still very easy to recognize it as a good story.

We had a strong female lead, a diverse and vast cast of characters that were well developed, and a story that flowed easily from one point to the next. For me it just lacked something. There wasn’t that zing I was hoping for, you know? So, while it was a good book by all of the tick box points, it wasn’t as engaging as I had hoped and it won’t be making my re-read list.

“It was a cruel trick of the universe, thought August, that he only felt human after doing something monstrous.”
