In Her Hands | Shadowsong by S. Jae-Jones

Publisher: Wednesday Books
Summary from Goodreads: 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 Her younger brother Josef is cold, distant, and withdrawn, while Liesl can’t forget the austere young man she left beneath the earth, and the music he inspired in her.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?
Review: If only books can talk, this one would tell you an amazing story. In S. Jae-Jones highly anticipated sequel to Wintersong, we learn of Liesl's fate and what terrible things she has brought upon the world and her beloved Goblin King.
I have to confess though, I was hoping for more of the Goblin king and the tunnels that turned our world around in the last book, but sadly, we only learn of the king's fate toward the end. Most of the book is spent on the carriers of Liesl and her brother Joseph. At times it was hard to get through, but I'm glad I did, because the ending was to die for. Love, love, love.
