A New York Times bestseller The bestselling sequel--and conclusion--to Victoria Schwab's instant #1 New York Times bestseller This Savage Song. Kate Harker is a girl who isn't afraid of the dark. She's a girl who hunts monsters. And she's good at it. August Flynn is a monster who can never be human. No matter how much he once yearned for it. He has a part to play. And he will play it, no matter the cost. Nearly six months after Kate and August were first thrown together, the war between the monsters and the humans is a terrifying reality. In Verity, August has become the leader he never wished to be, and in Prosperity, Kate has become the ruthless hunter she knew she could be. When a new monster emerges from the shadows--one who feeds on chaos and brings out its victim's inner demons--it lures Kate home, where she finds more than she bargained for. She'll face a monster she thought she killed, a boy she thought she knew, and a demon all her own. A gorgeously written dark fantasy from New York Times-bestselling author Victoria Schwab, and one to hand to fans of Holly Black, Laini Taylor, and Maggie Stiefvater. "Explosive."--Brightly… (mais)

I tried to read it on my Kindle but every time I did, I fall asleep. So I decided to download the audiobook. I was able to finish it, but I still didn't see what the hype was about.

I really tried to like this book but it just wasn't for me.

“There’s one kind of lie even you can tell. Do you know what it is?” She met his gaze in the steel doors. “The kind you tell yourself.”

RTC BECAUSE I CANNOT RIGHT NOW

I think the accidental two-year gap between reading the first book and the second impacted my rating, because I forgot a lot and didn’t have the momentum of going straight from one climax to the new normal. In other words, if I hadn’t had to reboot myself, this would probably have been an 8 instead of a 7. (Or possibly it’s that I don’t like Schwab’s YA as much as her adult books.)

Schwab’s writing is still strong. She’s done a good job of throwing the reader into the thick of things, introducing new characters and situations right from the start without slowing down (including an agender Sunai!). There’s some expanding on world-building, and things I wish could’ve been dwelled on longer because they were interesting, but at the heart of everything, it’s Kate and August and the monsters, as it should be. There’s residual nastiness from the last book, and something of a stalemate, and one of those meditations on moral greyness and impossible situations that Schwab does so well. The new monster is a terrifying addition to the world, omigod.

This is definitely a fitting cap to the duology. Stuff’s revisited and expanded on and called into question in different ways, and the final showdown sure is something. My heart nearly fell out at one point. Maybe two. I would not recommend reading this without having read the first book, and that within recent memory, but yes. Was good. Very Schwab. Not my favourite YA of all time, but those are some tough books to top.

7/10

To bear in mind: Pretty darn violent. Do not expect all major characters to get happy endings. Or every plot thread to be wrapped up. ( )

I'll be reading more from this author. I loved its fast pace, engaging characters swirled in darkness and light and the struggle to be who we want while maintaining our duty to the world and those around us.

At least that's what I got from it. August is the finest monster I've read about in a while. In this book, he's made more even more complex by his decisions, duties, and desires. Kate, at the beginning of the book isn't in Verity and she's struggling with her new bonds to others and ultimately, the reasons she has to escape them.

And after all that, Kate's dealing with a monster in her brain, which I frankly loved. It illustrated the struggles we all go through to not--well--strangle each other on a daily basis.

Unfortunately, this started off too slow and choppy, and I can't quite determine why. The first 100 pages or so felt a bit like a struggle, albeit an easy one, or this would've been a 5 star read for me. It suffered a little too because while the internal struggle was real, the first had more complex relationships between the good & evil, where here the enemy was quite clear.

Also though this book isn't romance, the main characters clearly deeply care about-and maybe even love one another-and that's clear. That makes this tale all the more bittersweet. ( )
