This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

slow at the start, but ends with a bang

I shouldn't be surprised that I loved it so much. So far, every book I’ve read by the author- I loved. It’s soo good. :)

Long-time ago, something happened, the incident. And ever since then monsters came. In the city of Verity, where the story is set, there are two leaders. Harker governs the north part. He keeps the appearance of peace, in exchange for money. Keeping the monsters Malchai and Corsai somehow in check. In the south part, Flynn's part, there is no illusion. Evidence of broken city are everywhere and Flynn and his family work very hard to keep it save. His three “kids” are Sunai. The third type of monster that appeared.
Sunai, Sunai, eyes like coal,

Sing you a song and steal your soul.
They can feed on the souls of bad people until they turn dark. 

The story follows Kate and August.

August is one of Sunai. He is sent to the school on the north side, to get close to Kate in case the truce gets broken.

After burning down the chapel of her last school, she is finally coming home, to live with her father - Harker and prove herself to him. Going to the same school as August, their paths cross.

Instead of staying away, they start to hang out. I love the dynamic of two of them. They somehow work so well together. 

My favorite thing about the story was Kate, she is the definition of bad-ass.

It starts out slow, with a lot of worldbuilding and setting the story. For the first courter, the pace is slow. As the story progresses, so does the pace. Steadily the tension rises, till the last courter of the story. Nonstop action, fast pace, lots going on. I couldn’t blink in fear of missing anything. And the ending is just beautiful.
