Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones - Book Review

Synopsis: All her life, Liesl has heard tales of the beautiful, dangerous Goblin King. They've enraptured her mind and spirit and inspired her musical compositions. Now eighteen and helping to run her family’s inn, Liesel 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. With time and the old laws working against her, Liesl must discover who she truly is before her fate is sealed.

I gave this book 3/5 stars. The plot was good, I'm not going to lie, but the main character was awfully annoying. She got mad over the most stupid things. Another flaw I saw was that she was just letting herself be pushed down by her father. I hate it when characters have self-doubt and are self-conscious when it comes to there talents when they could just show-off their amazing skills. I think it's also a point to be made that Liesl was being pushed down since she was younger and that she didn't understand at the time that she was being pushed down. Another point is that she over-reacted about her appearance. I find that awful because I think books should show how teens or whoever is reading the book should feel empowered to not care about what others think or what their peers say or how they look. It was just Liesl who brought those stars down. The rest of the novel was really good and it is likely that I will pick up the sequel.

That is it for now! If you enjoyed, SUBSCRIBE to join the bookish fun! I (hopefully) upload every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday (and I sometimes do surprise posts so Subscribe)!
So Long,


  1. The only thing I really couldn't stand was Liesel!

  2. I haven't read this book, but I've heard the lore of the Goblin King before. I'm curious to read this book :)
