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, 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 is.
The book about Goblins was in my reading list as soon as I heard about the book.But I was surprised to find so many negative reviews of book.
But when I read the book,I was spellbound with the story of Liesl and Goblin King. I just loved the book .The storyline is amazing with loads of character development.It’s about a brave and a strong girl who loved music but her family could not see her talent.But the Goblin king recognises her talent , when no one does so.The romance is between them is dark . The underground world is fascinating but I think it can be more conceptualised.There are choppy parts in the story,but I loved the book overall.
Strongly recommend for YA readers
