Been hiking in Hot Springs, Arkansas this week. Listening to this audio every morning. About halfway done and like it better than the first book!

sprainedbrain That‘s gorgeous! 2mo
DimeryRene @sprainedbrain Yes! I live in Texas and hadn‘t ever been to Arkansas. I guess they call it the natural state for a reason. There were so many trees! 2mo

August and Kate are back, fighting more monsters. They face something new, possibly scarier than anything they‘ve seen so far.

I wish I‘d read this right after Savage Song. In the year or two in between I‘d forgotten enough of the story that I had a tough time getting right into this sequel. Once I did though I enjoyed it.

This is a gem 🖤💙🖤 As sequel to A Savage Song, it is written exquisitely with both poetry and prose. The story continues of August and Kate and the heart stopping battle between humans and monsters -
So good 😥

A lot more violent than This Savage Song, but also more captivating. I still wish it was said how the Sunai came to be with the Flynns.

Last, but not least, a book published between May 21 and June 20 for #ReadYourSign challenge. @Clwojick @Meaw_Catlady

I enjoyed This Savage Song, but for some reason, Our Dark Duet didn't really grab my attention. Maybe because I loved August and Kate, and in the beginning there's so many other characters that are either new or I couldn't remember and didn't care about. Maybe I just waited too long to read this? I liked it, but I didn't love it.

Clwojick You did fantastic! Thanks for joining along this month! ♥️ 2y

This book was interesting. I loved the characters. The book over all was amazing but the ending brought me to tears. I didn‘t not think that Kate would end up dying. It never even crossed my mind. So I was so surprised when Alice killed her. I was also shocked when Ilsa died. I thought that because she was already so close to death in the first book it wouldn‘t happen again. This was a great book. 9/10

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.

As promised, I‘m back to my deep dive into my overly expansive TBR stacks. Case in point the tagged book—I know I bought it right around it‘s publication date (2017!!!) and that I liked the first book so how it has languished so long unread is beyond me. I plan on fixing that right now.

1/5⭐ The CONSTANT EMOTIONAL INTROSPECTION drove me up the wall and completely stalled any plot progression. I skipped the middle 80% of the audiobook and was able to pick up the last hour or so without feeling like I missed anything important at all. The "resurrection" of a main antagonist from the first book made the story feel stale and repetitive. I appreciated the dark elements but they weren't enough to keep me reading.

My heart is breaking into pieces after finishing this duology. Can't say I'm surprised this book is a thriller with monsters and people have to die. Victoria Schwab does a great job at keeping this 2nd book entertaining and on my edge of my seat. I loved it

When you're at the end of a very intense audiobook, so you sit in your car to finish it and end up ugly crying while your neighbor gives you dirty looks from her window. 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

THIS BOOK SERIES BROKE ME I have never in my life cried so much for a book. I‘m the first book, you build bonds with all these Characters, and then Victoria Schwab just kills them all. It‘s so sad to see people that you believe are your friends turn against you and the people who you hate become your favorite characters and it breaks my heart. AUGUST NEEDS A HUG

[#BookReview] Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab! This is the sequel to This Savage Song and I cannot recommend this duology (and all of Schwab‘s books) enough! I was completely blown away and a sobbing mess by the end. The writing, characters, and plot are so perfectly executed and I cannot wait to re-read them over and over again. Have you read it? 🎻

I listened to this duology conclusion on audiobook this weekend and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Schwab has created a unique "monster" in this series that is unlike anything I've read. The interaction between the two main characters, August and Kate, was well handled and believable.

I've been a fan of V.E. Schwab for a few years now, and if you enjoy sci-fi/fantasy then give this book a chance.

Like its predecessor, this book continues to explore the idea that people are not all one thing. This one was a bit darker, and a little slower at first, but still fascinating. It does pick up when the characters reunite, and while the ending is satisfying, it doesn't tie all the bows. It's real and serves to underline the theme that life is messy and hard, but worth fighting for.

Just realised I've never posted review for this duology! Read this early last month and loved them. A very unique YA about demons and monsters and raised question about..What it really means being a monster? Who are the real monsters? Human or demons.

Do you ever get a little mad when you read a book or series that has been sitting on your shelf for a while and fall in love???!! I should have read this duology sooner! It has become a favorite alongside The Six of Crows duology.. Have you read this? Did you like it??

Every review I try to write gives away something about how the series ends. So I'll just say I liked it. It continues the theme of what exactly makes someone a monster?

An ok sequel. Nothing extraordinary sadly. Although the ending was good. It could have gone one of two ways, the other would have been disappointing. There is a ‘non-binary‘ character which was nice to see. Although they‘re not strictly human sooo...

Well...I have to say I was disappointed in this second book. As much as I loved the first book in the Monsters of Verity duology I just really wasn't feeling this one. I couldn't get into it. I got tired of Kate always trying to be a bad ass. So maybe I'll try again later but for now...I need something else .

mutlee I didn‘t like this one as much as the first either. Glad it wasn‘t just me! 3y
SMayWrites @mutlee Nope! Not just you! Glad I'm in good company on that opinion. 3y
