Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, where we share those upcoming book releases that we just can’t wait to get our hands on!
This week I’m waiting on:
This Savage Song
By Victoria Schwab
Published by Greenwillow Books
Series: Monsters of Verity #1
Expected Publication Date: June 7, 2016
The city of Verity has been overrun with monsters, born from the worst of human evil. In North Verity, the Corsai and the Malchai run free. Under the rule of Callum Harker, the monsters kill any human who has not paid for protection. In the South, Henry Flynn hunts the monsters who cross the border into his territory, aided by the most dangerous and darkest monsters of them all—the Sunai, dark creatures who use music to steal their victim’s souls.
As one of only three Sunai in existence, August Flynn has always wanted to play a bigger role in the war between the north and the south. When the chance arises to keep an eye on Kate Harker, daughter of the leader of North Verity, August jumps on it.
When Kate discovers August’s secret, the pair find themselves running for their lives and battling monsters from both sides of the wall. As the city dissolves into chaos, it’s up to them to foster a peace between monsters and humans.
A unique, fast-paced adventure that looks at the monsters we face every day—including the monster within.
So I probably would have read this one even without the awesome-sounding blurb, because I LOVE Victoria Schwab’s The Archived series. But between that phenomenal cover, and knowing what it’s about, I need to read this book ASAP!
