Hello my fellow book lovers!
I hope you are having a fabulous Sunday! It is time to post a review of a book that I read recently. Writing a review is the hardest part of blogging guys! Because it takes a lot of time to think and construct a good review. Trust me, it took me double the time to write a review for this book and still could not get it straight.
The book that I picked for this week is Wintersong by S. Jae Jones. It was an amazing book and it took me so long to finish it. I was mesmerized by the story and I wanted to enjoy each and every word of it. After spending many days, struggling with time, finally I was able to finish reading the book. Reviews and ratings on the blogosphere itself created the hype on me, to get a hold of this book.
Beware the goblin men and the wares they sell.
All her life, nineteen-year-old Liesl has heard tales of the beautiful, mysterious Goblin King. He is the Lord of Mischief, the Ruler Underground, and the muse around which her music is composed. Yet, as Liesl helps shoulder the burden of running her family’s inn, her dreams of composition and childish fancies about the Goblin King must be set aside in favor of more practical concerns.
But when her sister Käthe is taken by the goblins, Liesl journeys to their realm to rescue her sister and return her to the world above. The Goblin King agrees to let Käthe go—for a price. The life of a maiden must be given to the land, in accordance with the old laws. A life for a life, he says. Without sacrifice, nothing good can grow. Without death, there can be no rebirth. In exchange for her sister’s freedom, Liesl offers her hand in marriage to the Goblin King. He accepts. Down in the Underground, Liesl discovers that the Goblin King still inspires her—musically, physically, emotionally. Yet even as her talent blossoms, Liesl’s life is slowly fading away, the price she paid for becoming the Goblin King’s bride. As the two of them grow closer, they must learn just what it is they are each willing to sacrifice: her life, her music, or the end of the world. (from goodreads)
The story is about a young girl called Liesl, who falls in love with the Goblin kIng. Goblin King, even though he is a monster, I liked the loving creature within him. Music becomes the common thing between them. But it is very sad to see that, it takes too long for them to understand each other. All characters are connected through love and music. The author’s effortless, beautiful writing made me enjoy each word of the story. My heart wrenched at the latter part of the story to see, Liesl leaving the Goblin King. You will definitely be hooked to the story, once you started reading!
It is indeed fantastic book that took my heart.
Tremendous, I like it very much
I hope you enjoyed!
Until next post,
