Review| Our Dark Duet – Victoria Schwab

After reading This Savage Song I was happy that I already owned Our Dark Duet. The first book sucked me right into that world and I needed more. Our Dark Duet was also amazing and I want more. This is a book I couldn’t stop thinking about after I was all done reading it. There were so many emotions!

Our Dark Duet is the second book in the Monsters of Verity duology.

KATE HARKER isn’t afraid of monsters. She hunts them. And she’s good at it.

AUGUST FLYNN once yearned to be human. He has a part to play. And he will play it, no matter the cost.



Kate will have to return to Verity. August will have to let her back in. And a new monster is waiting—one that feeds on chaos and brings out its victims’ inner demons.

Which will be harder to conquer: the monsters they face, or the monsters within?


Like I said about the first cover, I love them! They’re so simple, but I love the designs. I think I like this blue better than the red used for This Savage Song!

“There were two kinds of monsters, the kind that hunted the streets and the kind that lived in your head. She could fight the first, but the second was more dangerous. It was always, always, always a step ahead.”


This picked up six months after the ending of This Savage Song. I have to say I was sucked right back in to this world. Things are getting bad now that Kate’s father is dead and people don’t know what to do. Kate has been busy and fighting monsters, but not alone. August thinks he may need to accept being a monster. This is an action packed book that I just couldn’t put down. I think it was smart the author added Sloan’s POV. It made this book a little more creepy and me wanting the good side to win even more. Once again this is a book without romance and very refreshing. I can’t say that I am happy with the ending, but the author took risks and that’s what made this story amazing. I love the added element of the monster they couldn’t see. I really wish there were more than two books.

“I’m willing to walk in darkness if it keeps humans in the light.”


Kate hasn’t changed much in the six months after the ending of This Savage Song. She is doing her best to fight the monsters. Without even trying she has become friends with quite a few people. After being hurt by her father it’s clear she still keeps her distance. Even though it’s clear she is starting to care. I thought it was corageous of her to go back to a place that wasn’t safe to help the people there and August. Kate was brave and fought her own demons.

August has changed. He thinks he needs to be the monster he is claimed to be. He keeps hearing his brother’s voice and is starting to believe it. While it’s a way to protect himself, he loses what I loved about him in the first book. It was nice to see Kate tesr down those walls and take back some humanity. I thibk August’s only issue is that he cares too much.

“Monsters,” he said slowly, “all want the same thing: to feed. They are united by that common goal, while you are all divided by your morals and your pride. What do I think? I think that if you cannot come together, you cannot win.”

I wish there was more! While we got closure, there are still a lot of questions left that I would love to see answered. Have you read Our Dark Duet? What did you think?
