“Wintersong is a maze of beauty and darkness, of music and magic and glittering things, all tied together with exquisite writing. This is a world you will want to stay lost in.” —Marie Lu, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“This was Labyrinth by way of Angela Carter. Deliciously romantic, with a nuanced Goblin King and a strong heroine, this story was rife with fairy tales, music, and enchantment.” —Roshani Chokshi, New York Times bestselling author of The Star-Touched Queen [via GoodReads]




As soon as I read the words “Labyrinth Retelling” about this book on a book tumblr blog [sue me, I don’t remember the exact one, as I follow a handful of them for reblogging content moreso than latest book news / book recommendations.] I was super sold. Like it could probably epic bomb and I was still sold on it. Labyrinth was a huge favorite of mine as a child and I obviously still watch it years later. My fiance even cosplayed Jareth at a past DragonCon and he was an absolute hit!

Let’s be real, Jareth is hella pretty and if I had the chance I’d be like TAKE THIS UNSUPERVISED CHILD AND LOVE ME.
