Waiting On Wednesday (137) Wintersong by S.Jae-Jones

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly blog post hosted by Breaking The Spine where readers share which books they are highly anticipating. This week I want to share Wintersong by S.Jae-Jones.

Why I'm Waiting: This book sounds amazing. I am not going to lie this one intrigues me because it reminds me of Labyrinth. As a child of the 80's it is my sworn duty to love anything remotely sounding like that film. Plus this story has what sounds like a Beauty and The Beast element so it will be super interesting to see how those ideas weave together. I guess that's about it but I do like the cover as well (although with a 2017 publication date I don't want to like it too much because I know it can change). 

Expected Publication:
February 7, 2017 by Thomas Dunne



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.
