The last night of the year. Now the days of winter begin and the Goblin King rides abroad, searching for his bride…
All her life, Liesl has heard tales of the beautiful, dangerous Goblin King. They’ve enraptured her mind, her spirit, and inspired her musical compositions. Now eighteen and helping to run her family’s inn, Liesl can’t help but feel that her musical dreams and childhood fantasies are slipping away.
But when her own sister is taken by the Goblin King, Liesl has no choice but to journey to the Underground to save her. Drawn to the strange, captivating world she finds―and the mysterious man who rules it―she soon faces an impossible decision. And with time and the old laws working against her, Liesl must discover who she truly is before her fate is sealed.
Rich with music and magic, S. Jae-Jones’s Wintersong will sweep you away into a world you won’t soon forget.
I loved and hated this book. It is dark and mysterious story with a fairytale-like quality that is irresistible. Who is Goblin King and what is his history?
Liesl’s love for her sister and her own music pulled me into the book. Then as her relationship with the Goblin King developed, I found myself becoming more and more invested in Liesl’s (and the Goblin King’s) fate.
I finished this book with more questions than answers and with a feeling of deep sadness. The fact that Shadowsong has just been released, makes me curious to see where Jae-Jones goes with the conclusion of this duology.
