#BookReview: Shadowsong (Wintersong #2) by S. Jae-Jones #Shadowsong #NetGalley




About the Book:

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Her younger brother Josef is cold, distant, and withdrawn, while Liesl can’t forget the austere young man she left beneath the earth, and the music he inspired in her.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?

Notes and Opinions: After not really loving Wintersong I really wondered if I wanted to read this one at all. But I thought why not and dived into it and what I found was a story that went in a totally different direction than what I thought it was going to go in. In this one, we focus more on Liesl's relationship with Joseph which was wonderful! I didn't think that was where this book was going to go and that really surprised me.  You could also see how much the author changed and grew from book one.  I think this book was a little better put together than book one and I think I might try another book by this author in the future.  

I am really glad that I decided to check this one out. A lot of the book would be a spoiler so I won't get too far into it.  But this one had great pacing, was easier to follow than book one, and the characters were a little more hashed out I think.  I hope we get another book in this series as I think I will prob. check it out.  

Go Into This One Knowing: Better than book one!
