THE WORLD IS BREAKING. AND SO ARE THEY.
KATE HARKER isn’t afraid of monsters. She hunts them. And she’s good at it.
AUGUST FLYNN once yearned to be human. He has a part to play. And he will play it, no matter the cost.
THE WAR HAS BEGUN.
THE MONSTERS ARE WINNING.
Kate will have to return to Verity. August will have to let her back in. And a new monster is waiting—one that feeds on chaos and brings out its victims’ inner demons.
Which will be harder to conquer: the monsters they face, or the monsters within?
Last year I finally read This Savage Song after hearing so much praise and fell in love with the writing of Schwab. So say the least, Our Dark Duet was an anticipated read as this series is one of the most unique stories I have ever read. Schwab writes like no other author and I loved that .
So honestly the expectation was very high as I wasn’t disappointed last time around and I knew now to buy into the hype. Her words demonstrated that with her dark and gritty
Our Dark Duet picks up a few months after the fateful events that took place in This Savage Song.
Kate and August have gone their separate ways and once present us with two alternating POV as they deal with the aftermath of book one. Weaving a dark and gritty second instalment we follow them on two seemingly separately paths. Yet they are connected whether they like it or not and soon the adventure sees them back in the Verity dealing with the problems.
A jam packed adventure, Our Dark Duet lives up to the first book and delivers monsters and much more in this instalment. Readers won’t be disappointed like me and I’m glad I finally This Savage Song earlier in the year so I could be ready for this book.
One of things I loved about the series is that she writes a series with romance never in sight. A rare occurrence given most do to appeal to readers these days. I love that we focused instead on the fact that Kate is a kickass monster killer and August a monster who wants to be more than just a monster
Yet they are still tortured souls and this instalment only adds layers to the already complex characters that we love . It was addicting as the first instalment even though they were in different places and fighting .
Whilst the ending was predictable to say the least, Schwab has written a duet that I enjoyed for being unique and that why I’m still giving it five stars. It was great and everything you expect from Schwab to say the least. She builds up it in such way that you can want to devour this book.
