[Synopsis] (Taken from goodreads) 

There’s no such thing as safe.

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?


(DISCLAIMER: This review is based on my opinion only and may contain coarse language)

I actually tried to reread this book since I never got to finish the duology. The first time I read this book, I rated it 3 out of 5 stars.

Kate keeps getting into trouble at her boarding schools, she wants to prove to her father that she can be cruel too. August is a Sunai, a monster that steals souls with a song. Their city is falling apart.

I stopped reading at chapter 11, I just felt that the pacing was slower than I remembered and I didn’t like the world building as much as before. (See, this is why I cannot reread books.) And I actually borrowed the 2nd book too since I wanted to finish the duology.
