Dark and riveting comes the story from the pen of a genius.
There are books you love and forget and there are those that you cannot get out of your mind because they are deeply attractive and speak to your soul.This is one such masterpiece.
Combining elements from the ‘Goblin Market’ and the movie ‘Labyrinth’ couldn’t have been easy. But this story is wonderful, deep and mysterious.Though theatmosphere is dark, the lush description and lyrical dialogue(especially the German bits) add to the tale astonishing depth and beauty.
Liesl is a great heroine. The Goblin King is not your usual fairy-tale hero.There is sadness in both their hearts and the author lovingly puts together the tale in a vivid, defiant and unique manner.
I must say, I was surprised. The book did not turn out in the way I expected.
I was given an ARC by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
