I liked this book even better than This Savage Song. Schwab is a masterful storyteller whether it‘s writing MG as she is here or adult (Shades of Magic series). This book continues the story of August, a monster who longs to be human, & Kate, a human who hunts monsters. As always, the worldbuilding is phenomenal, the story imaginative & non-stop, the characters compelling. This is a dark & haunting story perfect for readers of all ages.
