The sequel to Victoria Schwab’s #1 New York Times–bestselling This Savage Song. August Flynn and Kate Harker lead the battle between humans and monsters in a thrilling urban fantasy that will appeal to fans of Holly Black and Laini Taylor.
Nearly six months after August and Kate were first thrown together in a plot to start a war, Kate is hunting monsters in Prosperity while August fights to keep V-City from collapsing into chaos. But when a new kind of monster appears — one who feeds on chaos and brings out its victim’s inner demons — it lures Kate home, where she finds more than she bargained for. She’ll face a Malchai she thought she killed, a boy she thought she knew, and a monster all her own. The engrossing conclusion to the dark urban fantasy begun in This Savage Song, which Booklist, in a starred review, describes as “linger[ing] long after its disquieting finale.” A gorgeously written new novel from New York Times–bestselling author Victoria Schwab, who is quickly taking her place with fantasy authors such as Maggie Stiefvater and Patrick Ness.
Victoria Schwab is the author of The Near Witch, a YA fantasy from Disney Hyperion, as well as The Archived, the first book in a YA supernatural series, also from Disney Hyperion. The product of a British mother, a Beverly Hills father, and a Southern upbringing, Victoria has a penchant for tea and BBC shows, and a serious and well-documented case of wanderlust.
Victoria Schwab writes adult fantasy under the pseudonym of V. E. Schwab.
