    Friend: Hey what's worse than being a living, breathing disappointment? Me: this book not really, but it's pretty damn close Every time I think of this book and how I spent an entire painful month reading this makes me want to dig a hole and bury myself alive in there because w...

    Full review posted: This book made me feel so many things, most of all sadness bc the stories of Lisel and the Goblin King and Josef and Kathe are over and my heart hurts. (???) Madness runs in her bloodline - Now in relation to Wintersong, Shadowsong is like a distant...

    1.5 stars I wanted to like this. I really did. Wintersong had some problems, such as pacing issues and a lack of consistency in character personalities and motivations, but I ultimately ended up enjoying the relationship between the protagonist and the Goblin King. This had not...

    ?For love is our only immortality, and when memory is faded and gone, it is our legacies that endure.? Someone please send help. I'm just a ball of emotions after finishing this. I just want to cry and cry and CRY at how perfect this sequel was. I think it's pretty cool tha...

    1 star I received a copy of this novel in exchange for a review. This does not affect my rating in any way. I guess I should say I'm at least thankful I didn't "dnf" this, since I was tempted to. And yet, I'm still disappointed. Quite. I mean, I didn't enjoy Wintersong too much e...

    I'm going to leave a rating off because I didn't quite finish this one. I absolutely love the author's gorgeous writing, but the plot here was harder for me to get into. The author's note at the beginning was so wonderful -- she talks about how both she and the main character live w...

    1/18 So I came home to find Shadowsong waiting for me in the mailbox and ya girl damn near died. Thank you to the amazing people at Wednesday Books for sending me this, I am so incredibly grateful. I was dying after reading Wintersong and the wait was torture. But you guys it was wo...

    This book was the ending this duology so desperately needed. I?m not yet sure whether my questions or answered or if my question were even valid in the first place. At some point, during the course of these books it stopped being about the facts, the plot, and the world but abou...

    For your music was the first and only thing in this world that kept me human, the first and last thing I give back to you. ?Josef This year, it seems that I'm becoming familiar with the disappointment that comes with unmet expectations. I loved Wintersong because of its lush, musi...

    Goblin King, Goblin King, wherefore art thou Goblin King? Apparently not much in this book. ? Now I will say Jae-Jones has some of the most beautiful writing I have ever read. ...

    Dark and lyrical, Shadowsong, brings to a conclusion the story of Liesl and her Goblin King. This second book in the Wintersong duology picks up a few months after the conclusion of Wintersong. Although I selected 3-stars, I would actually give this a 3.5-star rating if given the optio...

    3.5 I was really excited for this book and I think that ruined this book for me. I was so hyped and I just feel a lil let down. The conclusion was everything I wanted and the last 50 pages were perfect. However, the first 300 pages were slow, boring and honestly nothing I enjoyed h...

    THIS WAS BEAUTIFUL AND I NEED A MOMENT TO GATHER MY EMOTIONS BECAUSE I AM NOT PREPARED FOR THE REALISATION TO HIT THAT THIS STORY IS OVER - RTC ...

    3.5 stars I?m not really sure how to feel about this one, but I think if I reread it again when it?s a physical copy, my rating will change. The formatting of my e-arc is jumbled and full sentences are displaced and the chapter headings didn?t make sense. It made it difficult ...

    5 stars ***I received an ARC in return for my honest review** Yeah I devoured this basically haha. I LOVED IT! So great =) Thanks again to Wednesday Books for sending me a copy! There are some mature themes in the book, and the author put a note in the front talking about it. ...

    [spoiler free] 4.5s This is its own little universe; pull back the curtain, step inside and disappear from reality for a little while. "What are monsters but mortals corrupted?" There is such an atmosphere to this. Her writing is magical, it's melodic; each word, each sentence t...

    ?Once there was a little girl who played her music for a little boy in the woods. She was an innkeeper?s daughter and he was the Lord of Mischief, but neither were wholly what they seemed, for nothing is as simple as a fairy tale.? 1) Wintersong ???? So disappointin...

    This book is even harder to review than its predecessor. It is dark and eerie, unsettling and confusing, but also very, very slow. Before picking this book up, I heard that a) it was by far not as good as Wintersong; and b) that big parts would take place not in the Underground...

    Wintersong is one of my favorite books of all time, so to say I was excited to read Shadowsong is a bit of an understatement. That is why it hurts my heart to say that this book was a disappointment. There were things that I did enjoy in this story, but overall, it was a letdown. In...

    A dark and maddening conclusion to the Wintersong duology. This book is very different from the previous one. Leisl is on a journey of finding who she is and dealing with the loss of her love. She promised to go on in life but has to figure out how to do that. Her brother sends word fo...

    Love is our only immortality, and when memory is faded and gone, it is our legacies that endure. I'm sitting here ten minutes after finishing SHADOWSONG and I'm still wiping away the occasional tear. This book, for all that it's a sequel (and an end) to it's predecessor, feels almos...

    So disappointed in this book, it truly lacked every element that made the first book so fantastic. This sequel seemed to be just about Liesl dealing with her madness, there was barely a glimpse of the wonderful underground world of the Goblin King, that that made book one special for m...

    1 star I received a copy of this novel in exchange for a review. This does not affect my rating in any way. I guess I should say I'm at least thankful I didn't "dnf" this, since I was tempted to. And yet, I'm still disappointed. Quite. I mean, I didn't enjoy Wintersong too much e...

    I'm going to leave a rating off because I didn't quite finish this one. I absolutely love the author's gorgeous writing, but the plot here was harder for me to get into. The author's note at the beginning was so wonderful -- she talks about how both she and the main character live w...

    1/18 So I came home to find Shadowsong waiting for me in the mailbox and ya girl damn near died. Thank you to the amazing people at Wednesday Books for sending me this, I am so incredibly grateful. I was dying after reading Wintersong and the wait was torture. But you guys it was wo...

    3.5 I was really excited for this book and I think that ruined this book for me. I was so hyped and I just feel a lil let down. The conclusion was everything I wanted and the last 50 pages were perfect. However, the first 300 pages were slow, boring and honestly nothing I enjoyed h...

    5 stars ***I received an ARC in return for my honest review** Yeah I devoured this basically haha. I LOVED IT! So great =) Thanks again to Wednesday Books for sending me a copy! There are some mature themes in the book, and the author put a note in the front talking about it. ...

    This book is even harder to review than its predecessor. It is dark and eerie, unsettling and confusing, but also very, very slow. Before picking this book up, I heard that a) it was by far not as good as Wintersong; and b) that big parts would take place not in the Underground...

    Wintersong is one of my favorite books of all time, so to say I was excited to read Shadowsong is a bit of an understatement. That is why it hurts my heart to say that this book was a disappointment. There were things that I did enjoy in this story, but overall, it was a letdown. In...

    This book is even harder to review than its predecessor. It is dark and eerie, unsettling and confusing, but also very, very slow. Before picking this book up, I heard that a) it was by far not as good as Wintersong; and b) that big parts would take place not in the Underground...

    Wintersong is one of my favorite books of all time, so to say I was excited to read Shadowsong is a bit of an understatement. That is why it hurts my heart to say that this book was a disappointment. There were things that I did enjoy in this story, but overall, it was a letdown. In...

    A dark and maddening conclusion to the Wintersong duology. This book is very different from the previous one. Leisl is on a journey of finding who she is and dealing with the loss of her love. She promised to go on in life but has to figure out how to do that. Her brother sends word fo...

    Love is our only immortality, and when memory is faded and gone, it is our legacies that endure. I'm sitting here ten minutes after finishing SHADOWSONG and I'm still wiping away the occasional tear. This book, for all that it's a sequel (and an end) to it's predecessor, feels almos...

    So disappointed in this book, it truly lacked every element that made the first book so fantastic. This sequel seemed to be just about Liesl dealing with her madness, there was barely a glimpse of the wonderful underground world of the Goblin King, that that made book one special for m...

    Ehhh, not my thing. Full thoughts posted on my blog 02/12. ***Review posted on The Eater of Books! blog*** Shadowsong by S. Jae-Jones Book Two of the Wintersong series Publisher: St. Martin's Press Publication Date: February 6, 2018 Rating: 2 stars Source: eARC from NetGal...

    "For love is our only immortality, and when memory is faded and gone, it is our legacies that endure." Shadowsong is the finale book of S. Jae-Jones' Wintersong duology . This is a dark fantasy story inspired by Christina Rossetti's Goblin Market poem (which S. Jae-Jones inspire...

    I'm really torn between giving this 3 or 4 stars right now - so let's go with 3.5 then. Shadowsong had a ton of twists, turns, and interesting scenes in this book. However, it also had a ton of boring shit in it. The beginning started off so freaking slow and then it sort of picked ...

    Beautiful ending to a lyrical, dark and twisted story. While not a lot of action in the book and mainly just follows the thoughts of the main character it still envelopes you and sucks you in. The author did an amazing job of exposing real, raw and often times dark emotions in a strang...

    3.5 stars. The sequel of wintersong is great but when compared with the first, I felt disappointed about the story line. I was hoping more about the relationship between the goblin king and liesl, instead this story conveyed about the siblings love. That?s okay. I don?t really f...

    What is the point of having this sequel? Error 404. It's utterly ridiculous. I mean everything was just thrown, so that the sequel could be worshipped like the first one? BOO, it doesn't end well. And my Goblin King was left somewhere deep between the pages where I couldn't fi...
