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 and spirit and inspired her musical compositions. Now eighteen and helping to run her family’s inn, Liesel 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. With time and the old laws working against her, Liesl must discover who she truly is before her fate is sealed.
Dark, romantic, and powerful, Wintersong will sweep you away into a world you won’t soon forget.
I was so happy with this book I could cry. I loved reading this story and it never bored me. This is the first time in a while that I have read a book that did not leave me displeased. The writing was beautiful, the characters were great, and the story though it be familiar (Labyrinth) it was incredibly unique all in its own. The only thing I would change about this book is the time that I read it, I think this book would be a perfect winter read.
This book has such a focus on music that you don’t really see in many other books. Liesl’s dream is to compose, and with the Goblin King’s help they get to make beautiful music together.
Liesl was a great protagonist. She was a little annoying at times because she would always put others before herself and her needs. Once she discovered herself she got much better.
The Goblin King was my absolute favorite. He was mysterious, sexy, and just an all round great character. I love all the mystery surrounding his character but I’m dying to find out more.
This story leaves you wanting more and more. The writing is beautifully haunting and will leave you thinking. This is one of my favorite books of all time.
