Our Dark DuetBook - 2017
A New York Times bestseller
The bestselling sequel--and conclusion--to Victoria Schwab's instant #1 New York Times bestseller This Savage Song.
Kate Harker is a girl who isn't afraid of the dark. She's a girl who hunts monsters. And she's good at it. August Flynn is a monster who can never be human. No matter how much he once yearned for it. He has a part to play. And he will play it, no matter the cost.
Nearly six months after Kate and August were first thrown together, the war between the monsters and the humans is a terrifying reality. In Verity, August has become the leader he never wished to be, and in Prosperity, Kate has become the ruthless hunter she knew she could be. When a new monster emerges from the shadows--one who feeds on chaos and brings out its victim's inner demons--it lures Kate home, where she finds more than she bargained for. She'll face a monster she thought she killed, a boy she thought she knew, and a demon all her own.
A gorgeously written dark fantasy from New York Times-bestselling author Victoria Schwab, and one to hand to fans of Holly Black, Laini Taylor, and Maggie Stiefvater.
From the critics
Sexual Content: Two characters passionately kiss and embrace each other. A minor character is gay.

Violence: 'Our Dark Duet' is crammed with blood and gore from beginning to end. Humans fight humans, humans fight monsters, and monsters fight monsters. There are some detailed descriptions of fights that involve weapons such as guns, knives, spikes, teeth, nails, and claws. Monsters tear our each other's throats and feast on humans.

It finds death

People were messy. They were defined not only by what they'd done, but by what they would have done, under different circumstances, molded as much by their regrets as their actions, choices they stood by and those they wished they could undo. Of course, there was no going back—time only moved forward—but people could change.
Or for better.
It wasn't easy. The world was complicated. Life was hard. And so often, living hurt.
So make it worth the pain.
