Six months after the end of Wintersong, Liesl is working toward furthering both her brother’s and her own musical careers. Although she is determined to look forward and not behind, life in the world above is not as easy as Liesl had hoped. Her younger brother Josef is cold, distant, and withdrawn, while Liesl can’t forget the austere young man she left beneath the earth, and the music he inspired in her.
When troubling signs arise that the barrier between worlds is crumbling, Liesl must return to the Underground to unravel the mystery of life, death, and the Goblin King—who he was, who he is, and who he will be. What will it take to break the old laws once and for all? What is the true meaning of sacrifice when the fate of the world—or the ones Liesl loves—is in her hands?
This book was an alright read for me. You get to see what happen to Liesl, after she the goblin king let her go. The book was just slow moving for me. You see how Leisl tries to have an normal life without the goblin king. Get to know more details of her family and brother life. In the end the book got dead bodies and very less romance than the first. It finally ends Leisl story in Shadowsong. For fans of Wintersong the first book might like it better then I did. The pretty covers to Wintersong and Shadowsong is what had draw me in at first place and the summaries on the back. Was sad the story was not meant for me. Hope other people enjoy how it all ends.
