Kindly revive me. I cannot even find coherent words right now???
THAT WAS MAGNIFICENT.
Monsters. ALL THE MONSTERS. We all know all the best stories are dark and full of monsters.
This book, like all of Schwab’s slaying books that I have read, IS PURE GENIUS.
JOKING JOKING. I did warn you I am currently not coherent right???
I love that this book fabulously portrays that monsters aren’t always bad and that some monsters come in the form of humans.
That doing something bad doesn’t automatically make you a bad person.
Action and reaction. Every dark deed creates a monster.
Each and every one of the characters has depth, and I have fallen hopelessly for more than just the main characters as Schwab somehow ALWAYS manages to make me do. HOW. HOW DO YOU DO IT YOU SLY DEVIL???
August Flynn – a Sunai and one of the rarest kind of monsters. The kind that “sings you a song and steals your soul”. THAT IS CORRECT. They eat souls. And they do it beautifully!!! And my softest spot is for this little monster who wants nothing more than to be human. He is so precious to me and SOMEONE PLEASE GIVE HIM A BLANKET AND HOT COCOA THE POOR DEAR.
Kate Harker – the daughter of the baddest man in town, vying for her father’s affections. She is insecure and lost and puts on a brave front just like the best of us on any given day. And also she opens the book by burning down a chapel like on the first page???? Talk about a bold entry!
Ilsa – we don’t see much of August Flynn’s sister, but for some reason I find myself utterly drawn to her. She is beautifully not fully there, and yet somehow the wisest of them all. I hope to see more of her in Our Dark Duet!
Harker – the perfect villain. Easy to hate. Does terrible things. A perfect example of a monster in a human’s skin.
Also lots of stuff happens!! Like fighting and evil and good and murkiness and so many cute adorable moments. It was also refreshing that there was like no romance???* Honestly my mind has been obliterated by this beauty of a book can someone please scrape up my brains and stuff them back into my skull. Thank you.
This was super short, but NOT TO WORRY. COHERENT REVIEW OF OUR DARK DUET TO COME SOON**
*DID I JUST SAY THAT?? I LOVE ROMANCE???????
**Who am I kidding when have I ever been coherent :,)
Have YOU read This Savage Song??? Are you avoiding it because HYPE?? Are you a fellow Schwabian like me and will just read literally anything she ever writes?????
