Kate Harker wants to be as ruthless as her father. After five years and six boarding schools, she’s finally going home to prove that she can be.
August Flynn wants to be human. But he isn’t. He’s a monster, one that can steal souls with a song. He’s one of the three most powerful monsters in a city overrun with them. His own father’s secret weapon.
Their city is divided.
Their city is crumbling.
Kate and August are the only two who see both sides, the only two who could do something.
But how do you decide to be a hero or a villain when it’s hard to tell which is which? @goodreads
My July Owlcrate Box Book! Woot!
I totally loved this book! The idea of the different monsters were really cool. I'm not sure I understand all of it but this is what I understood about the monsters:
1. Malchai - Drink blood but are not vampires. Formed/Form from murders.
2. Corsai - Feed on flesh and bone. Formed/form from violent acts
3. Sunai - Feed on sinner souls (killers etc.). Formed/form from major catastrophes (bombs etc.).
Kate Harker is the daughter of Callum Harker. He controls some of the monsters and he's pretty evil. An event in his life sent him right over the edge. Or maybe he was already on that edge. Kate tries to be evil like her father. She does some some evil things but she's really good deep down inside.
August Flynn is a sunai and his father (that took him in) is Henry Flynn. He is a good guy trying to keep the bad monsters and people at bay. And trying to keep a peace treaty among said monsters. August also has a brother Leo and sister Ilsa that live with Henry.
I loved both characters of August and Kate. August is a sweet person that doesn't want to be a monster, but to me he is a good kind of monster. Taking the souls of those that do horrible things isn't so bad.
Kate is just a bad @ss and gets stuff done. And contrary to what she ever thought, she becomes a monsters friend instead of his enemy.
Together August and Kate have to fight some enemies that are trying to cause a war. People and things die, things are reborn.
I thought it was a really cool concept in this new world. I enjoyed learning about the monsters. The story line was awesome and that ending! What is coming next? I need to know!
Overall the book was awesome, but that's my opinion =) Enjoy
Happy Dance for the next book! I need you soon =)
