    Oh shiiiiit. Schwab was

    playing nice with our feelings when she wrote this book. I suspect she might be a bit evil, but, you know, in a good way.

    picks up several months after the events of

    . August is busy fulfilling his monstrous duty in Verity - reaping the souls of those who have committed violent acts - and Kate is now part of a monster-fighting gang in Prosperity.

    The book starts slowly with some introspection. August struggles between his duty and what he believes, deep down, is right. He hears the voice of his dead brother instructing him in his head. Kate, on the other hand, is now battling her own inner and outer demons. She hunts monsters to ignore the sadness and loneliness she feels. This all seems fairly innocuous.

    I'll let you find out the details for yourself, but this monster is unlike anything Kate or August have seen before. Not a Corsai, not a Malchai, and not a Sunai, but

    . Kate trails it back to the place that has been calling her for months - Verity.

    When I started the book I didn't have a clear memory of

    and wondered if I would have to do a reread, but a couple of chapters in and it all came flooding back to me. I figured out somewhere along the way what this series reminds me of, and that's Kagawa's

    .

    and I get a similar vibe from them.

    New and interesting characters emerge, such as the genderless Soro, who it's just a shame we won't get to see more of.

    . In fact, the whole latter half of the story just explodes. Breakneck pacing leading towards a fittingly dramatic conclusion that pretty much destroyed me.

    I will end with my favourite quote:

    I'm so dead.

    Victoria Schwab has killed me one too many times that I'm all out of lives.

    I just can't.

    The fact that this series is only two books and I'll never get to see my children again makes me so mad. I'm currently saving up for a lawyer so I can sue Victoria for emotional distress.

    Also sorry, this review is a complete mess, much like myself right now. I've been trying to write it for three

    Also sorry, this review is a complete mess, much like myself right now. I've been trying to write it for three days now and I just don't know what to day. Everything I want to say is so spoilerly and I just can't.

    If you read

    and was like "it's good but not my favorite"

    then you are gonna die even more than I did because this book wasn't even on the same level as TSS. I can't believe they are even the same series.

    We start off 6 months after TSS and holy f*ck shit has gone down in between books. Kate's off ignoring her responsibilities and monster hunting in a different city and being a bamf. August is in Verity running an army and slowly dying inside and every time he is sad I am sad and I don't like it.

    Then there's this creepy monster that feeds off chaos that goes to Verity to create chaos and Kate has to return home and reunite with her bff August to take down this monster down

    And that's when everythign goes to shit

    First of all, someone please teach me to kill people with a violin like August does. I honestly want to be that badass.

    August is one of the most interesting characters to ever exist. This may be just a duology but his character development in these two book spanned a entire ten book series. It was just so spot on? He was so cute and naive in TSS and he still in in ODD but he's also strong and capable and thoughtful and acts so much older than his age.

    Also can we talk about fascinating he is as a person/monster/species. He was born from the ashes of a mass killing, gets tally mark tattoos on his body for not being a monster, can steal someone's soul using just a violin. I am so intrigued by him. I kinda wanna be him.

    Kate is literally human goals. She doesn't take anyone's shit. She does her own thing. There are big bad monsters that are intimidated by her. I love her so much.

    I love how she became this monster hunter in the city of Prosperity at the beginning and she made this great group of friends and she was starting to get to a point in her life where she could finally be happy.

    As you can tell, I'm still haven't' found a way out of hell yet.

    I don't think I'll ever be able to read a book as good as this again.

    August Flynn is my baby and I love him so much.

    This book was dark af and I love it.

    Both Victoria Schwab series ended this year and now I don't know what I am going to do with my life until her next book comes out.

    This review is the worst. I'm sorry. I'm too dead to care.
