About the Author
VICTORIA "V. E." SCHWAB is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of more than twenty books, including the acclaimed Shades universe, the Villains series, the City of Ghosts series, Gallant and the international bestseller The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue. Her work has received critical acclaim, been translated into over two dozen languages, and optioned for television and film. First Kill - a YA vampire series based on Schwab's short story of the same name - is now a Netflix series. When not haunting Paris streets or trudging up English hillsides, she lives in Edinburgh, Scotland, and is usually tucked in the corner of a coffee shop, dreaming up monsters.
Reviews

"A violently thoughtful, brilliant triumph of a book that will blind you with its genius." -- Gaby Salpeter, Books of Wonder

"There are no wasted words here, and the end result is a darkly precise narrative that feels like a shiver down the spine...this taut creation about the nature of humanity lingers long after its disquieting finale." -- Booklist (starred review)

"Schwab's latest seems poised to grab both her adult and teen readers; the world is fascinating...the characters complicated, and the political machinations and emotional depths both charged and compelling. ...Crackling with energy, just the ticket for an all-night read." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Schwab explores the natures of justice and humanity in an assuredly built world with a compelling settings and an intriguing music-based magic. And in August and his Sunai siblings, she introduces a type of monster both sympathetic and terrifying. A cliffhanger ending promises a sequel." -- The Horn Book

"Kate and August both undergo an impressive amount of character development, and fans will like them despite their flaws. Combined with the nonstop action and the author's immersive writing style, this first purchase is sure to be a hit with older teens and fans of urban fantasy." -- School Library Journal

"Schwab has built a strange, captivating alternate America filled with offbeat, fascinating characters. ...Readers looking for a dangerous and engrossing new world to fall into will find it with this fast-paced, frightening read." -- Publishers Weekly

"The pacing is fast, the narrative enthralling, but it is the depths of the novel - its acuteness of moral imagination and perception - that will stay with you afterward. My highest recommendation." -- San Diego Union-Tribune

"Gritty dialogue and realistic scenes of violence will have senior high school students who enjoy The Hunger Games and Divergent series awaiting the next book in this series." -- Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)

"Unique, thrilling, and impossible to predict, This Savage Song is something entirely new, and fans of YA will want to seek out this dark and powerful novel. ...Schwab has written a book with moments of cruelty and bleakness that also includes high adventure and heroic achievements." -- Locus
