Waiting on Wednesday (173)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week I am waiting on This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab (6/7/16):

Description on Goodreads:
The city of Verity has been overrun with monsters, born from the worst of human evil. In North Verity, the Corsai and the Malchai run free. Under the rule of Callum Harker, the monsters kill any human who has not paid for protection. In the South, Henry Flynn hunts the monsters who cross the border into his territory, aided by the most dangerous and darkest monsters of them all—the Sunai, dark creatures who use music to steal their victim’s souls.

As one of only three Sunai in existence, August Flynn has always wanted to play a bigger role in the war between the north and the south. When the chance arises to keep an eye on Kate Harker, daughter of the leader of North Verity, August jumps on it.
When Kate discovers August’s secret, the pair find themselves running for their lives and battling monsters from both sides of the wall. As the city dissolves into chaos, it’s up to them to foster a peace between monsters and humans.

A unique, fast-paced adventure that looks at the monsters we face every day—including the monster within.
Why I’m Waiting:
How cool does this plot sound? It reminds me vaguely of Laini Taylor’s books. Yet, it also has this civil war (north v south) feel. It sounds awesome. I also love the cover. I have to admit I have yet to read a book by Victoria Schwab. I have read nothing but good things about her. And I might even own some of her earlier works. I just haven’t gotten there yet. And well, I may have to start with this one.
What are you waiting on this week?
