Will I continue this series? A resounding yes…
This is my first Victoria Schwab book and it is a uniquely written story that will have you hooked within a few minutes. It has an enlivened sinister feel to it, with solid narration and a stellar cast of characters. As long as your not looking for a romance, because it doesn't really have one, not yet, anyway. It's not really necessary that it have a love connection for me. This book is more about August and Maggie trusting each other, which is rather refreshing, actually.
I just have one einsy little complaint, I'm not sure if I missed it, but I don't understand how the monsters came to be. Is there something in the air that just makes them come about? Maybe it's still a mystery…something for the second book…but, if anyone can answer this for me, please do. Well shit, I just reread the synopsis just now, and it says that violence creates the monsters. How utterly fascinating. Maybe this does deserve a full 5 stars. I cannot wait for the second book. Shit, I really need to read her other series.
