Wintersong & Shadowsong by S. Jae-Jones
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.
After reading these books, I think I’m starting to really be attracted to stories about the fey. I liked Wintersong; not only was the writing beautiful, but it was such an atmospheric book. I think that was why I liked it so much; I’m not usually one for romance, but I found the romance between the Goblin King and Liesel all right. At the very least, it had a lot of aestheticism behind it, and aesthetics are my downfall.
