This book is about Liesl running her family’s inn and dreaming of music and the goblin king which inspires her music.
Her sister Käthe is taken by the goblins and Liesl follows after them to rescue her sister. The goblin king agrees to let Käthe go for a price, Leisl’s hand in marriage. A life for a life is his motto.
While he still inspires her, she is slowly fading away. As they grow closer, they have to decide what to sacrifice.
I absolutely love fairy tales so I devoured this book. I loved the fact it didn’t focus on fae and it didn’t have a stereotypical “beautiful” main character like most books do. I absolutely loved how the goblin king doesn’t love Elisabeth for looks but for the music of her soul. This was an amazing book!
