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.
I have a soft spot for Slavic themed fairy tales and this one definitely blew me out of the water. The quaint Germanic village, the musical talents of the characters as well as the legend of the Goblin King and his bride.
This book was longer than I expected, which allowed for a fleshed out mythology and slow romance between the characters to blossom.
