Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.
Shadowsong by S. Jae-Jones
It is to be released on January 30th, 2018 by Wednesday Books.
I haven’t read Wintersong, the first book in, I believe, a duology. I still am excited for Shdowsong because the synopsis for Wintersong sounds amazing. This book is set around 6 months after the ending of Wintersong. So curious about the world, the characters, etc. I need to pick it up so I can read this book.
Warning: do not read the synopsis here for Shadowsong because it may have spoilers.
The COVER! Seriously, 2017 and 2018 has been great when it comes to the covers for the books. It is so beautiful. I cannot wait to have it sow off on my bookshelf! I love how it is so purple but it doesn’t overshadow the globe breaking with the red poppy flowers.
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 Her younger brother Josef is cold, distant, and withdrawn, while Liesl can’t forget the austere young man she left beneath the earth, and the music he inspired in her.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?
