So, this book picks up six months after the disastrous ending of This Savage Song. Kate has gone to a different city, Prosperity and begun hunting monsters. But Prosperity has like a different breed of monsters and they are also very rare and kept from the public’s knowledge. On the other hand, August has to take Leo’s place as the leader of FTF, and now he has no choice but to do the things that need to be done in times of war. To be the monster and to embrace it.
Okay... What a book. First thing, it has been a while since I have read a fantasy book, with a different world and different problems and different monsters. So, in the beginning, I was like what is this? Am I reading the first book? Does this not have a prequel? I was certain it did not have a prequel because I was waiting for the second book to release before I started reading it, still, I had to check a few times just to make sure.So get this, there are monsters, like real monsters some feed on blood and some feed on flesh and some feed on souls. The malachai drink blood, the corsai feed on flesh. The sunai feed on the souls of people who have sinned. (they only feed on the souls of sinners which appear red)
Here is an overview for the month of July and my TBR for August. From the beginning of July, I had accepted that I would not be reading a lot of books this month, taking into account that I had my midterms from 10th to 18th. And foolish me, I had decided to do the Hobonichi Challenge for July. My brain was probably on overdrive trying to balance out my priorities. I mostly just randomly browse books and pick something that sounds interesting or looks glorious. TBR lists intimidate me, to be honest. Nevertheless, this time I am going to make a specific TBR list for August. I hope that this will be a productive month in terms of reading books! 😀
