This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

“Why do you even want to be human? We’re fragile. We die.”


I bought this book on a whim because I had seen people on bookstagram talking about it. I am so very glad I did.

I ended up with a signed first edition in perfect condition from someone’s Uppercase box. Just a lucky find from the used bookstore. It took me a good while to finally get around to reading it, but once I did, I couldn’t stop. The characters drew me in from the beginning. I have a huge soft spot for wounded characters and I found that in August Flynn. He’s a precious cinnamon roll that needs to be protected. Kate was also a nice character, but I found myself more drawn to August.

The whole time I was reading the story, I was sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to see what happened to my precious cinnamon roll. Was he going to go dark and lose the part of himself that he so desperately wanted to hold on to, or was he going to let the darkness surrounding him beat him down and win? I had to know what happened.

This was the first time I had ever read anything by Victoria Schwab and I wasn’t disappointed with the hype. I think she’s definitely going to be an author that I auto-buy her books from now on. A Darker Shade of Magic has been on my tbr since the beginning of my bookstagram days back in November. I haven’t gotten around to purchasing it or finding it from my local library. I did get the eBook free when Tor publishing had it available for roughly 48 hours, but I’m not much of an eReader, so I don’t know if that’s the medium I will choose to read it on. Either way, I am excited to see what else is in store from her.

I won’t say too much else about the book other than if you haven’t read it, what are you waiting for? Pick yourself up a copy and read it!

Can’t wait to get my hands on the second book, Our Dark Duet.
