Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):

Readers who like take-no-prisoners urban fantasy will enjoy this intense showdown between humankind and various monsters who haunt the darkness. In Kate and August, the two main characters of Our Dark Duet, author Victoria Schwab has created protagonists worth following to hell and back, as they fight for survival and salvation.

Sometimes the action gets a little repetitive, with Kate being told not to do something dangerous, resisting, and then learning why everyone was trying to warn her. It's an effective gambit once or twice, but the pattern wears out its welcome. Otherwise, this is another stellar effort from a writer supremely comfortable with both YA and adult audiences.
