Parnassus Books is thrilled to welcome Victoria Schwab as she reads from and signs This Savage Song.
This Savage Song tells the story of two teens in a broken world, where violent acts start breeding actual monsters. Some are shadows with teeth that feed on flesh and bone. Some are corpses that feed on blood. And some can pass for human. Those rare creatures feed on souls.
It’s the story of Kate Harker, the only daughter of a crime boss, and August Flynn, the son of a man trying to hold his city together. Kate is a human who wants to be a monster, and August a monster who wishes he were human.
Victoria Schwab is the product of a British mother, a Beverly Hills father, and a southern upbringing. Because of this, she has been known to say “tom-ah-toes”, “like”, and “y’all”.
She writes books. Some are about monsters. Others, supervillains. Others, magic. When she’s not wandering Scottish streets, she’s usually holed away with a cup of tea.
