Product description

Review

"A violently thoughtful, brilliant triumph of a book that will blind you with its genius."--Gaby Salpeter, Books of Wonder

"Schwab explores the natures of justice and humanity in an assuredly built world with a compelling settings and an intriguing music-based magic. And in August and his Sunai siblings, she introduces a type of monster both sympathetic and terrifying. A cliffhanger ending promises a sequel."--The Horn Book

"Schwab has built a strange, captivating alternate America filled with offbeat, fascinating characters. ...Readers looking for a dangerous and engrossing new world to fall into will find it with this fast-paced, frightening read."--Publishers Weekly

"The pacing is fast, the narrative enthralling, but it is the depths of the novel - its acuteness of moral imagination and perception - that will stay with you afterward. My highest recommendation."--San Diego Union-Tribune

"Gritty dialogue and realistic scenes of violence will have senior high school students who enjoy The Hunger Games and Divergent series awaiting the next book in this series."--Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)

"Unique, thrilling, and impossible to predict, This Savage Song is something entirely new, and fans of YA will want to seek out this dark and powerful novel. ...Schwab has written a book with moments of cruelty and bleakness that also includes high adventure and heroic achievements."--Locus

"Schwab's latest seems poised to grab both her adult and teen readers; the world is fascinating...the characters complicated, and the political machinations and emotional depths both charged and compelling. ...Crackling with energy, just the ticket for an all-night read."--Kirkus Reviews

"Kate and August both undergo an impressive amount of character development, and fans will like them despite their flaws. Combined with the nonstop action and the author's immersive writing style, this first purchase is sure to be a hit with older teens and fans of urban fantasy."--School Library Journal

"There are no wasted words here, and the end result is a darkly precise narrative that feels like a shiver down the spine...this taut creation about the nature of humanity lingers long after its disquieting finale."--Booklist (starred review)

From the Back Cover

Kate Harker wants to be as ruthless as her father. After five years and six boarding schools, she’s finally going home to prove that she can be.

August Flynn wants to be human. But he isn’t. He’s a monster, one that can steal souls with a song. He’s one of the three most powerful monsters in a city overrun with them. His own father’s secret weapon.

Their city is divided.

Their city is crumbling.

Kate and August are the only two who see both sides, the only two who could do something.

But how do you decide to be a hero or a villain when it’s hard to tell which is which?

Corsai, Corsai, tooth and claw,

Shadow and bone will eat you raw.

Malchai, Malchai, sharp and sly,

Smile and bite and drink you dry.

Sunai, Sunai, eyes like coal,

Sing you a song and steal your soul.

Monsters, monsters, big and small,

They’re gonna come and eat you all.
