Book Review: This Savage Song by V E Schwab

Hey Guys!

It is Sunday and you know what that means, it is time for another book review, and this week it is the turn of one of my favourite authors, V E Schwab. So, without further ado, here is my review for This Savage Song.


This book has been on my TBR list for ages. I have wanted to pick this book up ever since I first read A Darker Shade Of Magic. it just sounded so intriguing and I had heard such good things about it. and it was really good.

I will be 100% honest and say that I didn’t love this book quiet as much as everyone else seems too, but I did really enjoy it. it was such an unusual story. I am forever awed by Schwab’s imagination and her ability to conjure up all of these incredible worlds and stories. No two are the same. it is just amazing. I don’t think I have ever encounter an author quiet like her! this has got to be the darkest world of hers that I have read yet. It is so interesting.

I am really intrigued by the whole ‘monsters’ phenomenon. There is so much I want to know about them. they are all such complex creatures and I feel that we only just brushed the surface of them. I am particularly intrigued by the Sunai. Considering that they are a huge part of this book, you don’t actually get to know that much about them. there is so much stuff about them that we haven’t been told and that I am just itching to know. I am really intrigued to read Our Dark Duet, just see if we find out more about these fascinating monsters.

I did also really like the characters in this book. I love August and Kate. And I love their relationship. There is a hint of potential romance between them, but none is really explored in this book. This book focuses on them as individuals and their joint goals. And I really liked that. I am glad that this book did focused on them as people and not just force them as a couple on us. They are both such complex and interesting characters and I really enjoyed reading about them both. I just think that they both have so much interesting back story that we have only just scratched the surface off, and they both hold so much potential.

All in all, I did really enjoy this book. I don’t think that I loved it quiet as much as other people seem too, but it was good. I feel like this is a book that I would enjoy more a second time around, but I am excited to read Our Dark Duet very soon.
