Duet Review: This Savage Song and Our Dark Duet by VE Schwab


Monsters of Verity Duet by VE Schwab

This Savage Song #1

Our Dark Duet #2

Ok so I am totally late to the party (again!) but I am so glad I picked these up, so refreshingly different and I LOVED them!

I wont bore you with the blurbs as I am sure you have either read or know what the books are about (if you haven’t check them out here and here.)



Unputdownable <—— love this word, and it’s so apt for this book!

So I’ve never read this author before and decided to jump in with this duet…..omg I’ve been missing out!

August and Kate were fabulous in their own ways although August was my total fave out of the duo.

I don’t really know what to say, I don’t want to say anything about the plot but I will say it’s weird for me, a book with no romance, I can’t remember the last time I read a book with no love interests, totally refreshing!

‘I read somewhere, that people are made of stardust.
Maybe that’s what you’re made of. Just like us.
And despite everything, August smiled.’

And that ending. My eyes were popping out my head!



This book pick a up a few months after Our Savage Song and we find August and Kate kicking but (yes changed for my review!) separately……but their lives intertwine again when a new monster shows up…..

Whilst I didn’t love this as much as Savage Song, I still liked it, it was creepy and dark and had me hooked.

And that ending, just explosive! It didn’t conform to what people probably expected and it broke my heart but, oh my god, a fantastic conclusion to the duet!
