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 Her younger brother Josef is cold, distant, and withdrawn, while Liesl can’t forget the austere young man she left beneath the earth, and the music he inspired in her.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

Shadowsong was worth the wait . . .

Before I get to my review I just want to say that that I’m glad that some authors are taken the time to warn others before reading their books that some of the content could be triggering so thank you SJJ for including an authors note to warn people in the first few pages.

Part 1 

“Help me make sense of myself.”

What did I like about Shadowsong?

Everything. I loved everything about Shadowsong. I connected so much with Liesel and all her fears and emotions, she was one of those characters that tried her best and still felt like it wasn’t enough and throughout the story she learned that it’s okay to not be okay, it’s okay to not be strong all the time and it’s okay to be who you are and it’s okay to be happy and sad and feel so much.

Also I was surprised that Shadowsong had multiple povs which I thought I would not like since LIESL is my favorite character but . . . I enjoyed the other povs, I actually couldn’t wait to get to their povs to see what else was happening with the rest of the world and let me tell you there’s a backstory from one of the characters and ugh my heart was breaking for said character.

What I didn’t like about Shadowsong?

To be honest I don’t like the fact that it’s a duology. I could never get enough of this world that S. Jae-Jones created. But since I’m being honest and all I have to say that Shadowsong’s ending will leave you more than satisfied.

Part 2

S. Jae-Jones has a way with words that leaves you breathless and enchanted, she writes with so much passion and heart that I feel her words all the way to my very soul. I’ve said that before but it has to be repeated over and over again. As much as I loved Wintersong I can 100% tell you that I loved Shadowsong even more, it’s one of those stories that will stay with your forever and ever. Shadowsong was worth the wait and this is a duoloagy you do not want to miss.
