This book left me in awe. Everything, the characters, the plot, the setting, completely set a dark and mystical tone. The gorgeous writing had me staying up until midnight, enjoying this beautiful fantasy.
The main character Liesel is probably one of my favorite female protagonist I’ve read about in a while. She was brave and selfless, but she also had many flaws. I loved seeing her character grow! There were moments where Liesel seemed so calm and badass, but there were just as many moments where I thought she was slowly losing her sanity. There were so many different sides to her, and I loved reading about all of them.
The plot is AMAZING! I started reading thinking I would only read 50 pages, but as soon as I read the opening I was hooked. I finished this book in 24 hours, which surprised because I haven’t done that for a book in a while. The book is split it up in different sections, and each section got better and better. There were moments where I was anxious, where I was bawling my eyes out, where I was smiling like an idiot and dying from laughter. The plot gave me a little taste of every emotion. The plot was engaging and full of mystical adventure!
Ooooffff, now I’m a sucker for romance and this book had me good. I love romance books, but when the couple starts young and meets later on now those are my favorite type of romance books. Young love is adorable! Liesel and the Goblin King had so much chemistry. From there little flirty remarks, they’re passion for music, they’re relationship was gorgeous. They were like star-crossed lovers, but underground and add goblins into the mix.
Now that I’ve covered other parts of the book I need to talk one important aspect, the Goblin King. He was a mystery. I don’t even know how to describe him, he was so mysterious. I will say though, I loved reading about him! I saw so many different sides to him I don’t think I can talk about only one. He was flirty, mischievous, scary, gushy, depressing and all and all the perfect Goblin King.
Overall, I rate this book a 5 out of 5. I highly recommend that you read this book. The whole reason I read this book was because, I saw it all over bookstagram, and it didn’t disappoint. It’s engaging, vivid, and beautifully written. As I said earlier this book is definitely Labyrinth meets Beauty and the Beast. The characters are interesting and have many different layers to them. This book is difficult to put down so I recommend reading it on a day you don’t have to do anything. “Wintersong” is AMAZING! I hope you’ve enjoyed this post, you’ve just been reviewed.
