Book Birthday Celebration at The Bengali Nomad: Shadowsong by S. Jae Jones (READ AN EXCERPT!!)




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 Her younger brother Josef is cold, distant, and withdrawn, while Liesl can’t forget the austere young man she left beneath the earth, and the music he inspired in her.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

About S. Jae Jones (taken from Goodreads): S. Jae-Jones, called JJ, is an artist, an adrenaline junkie, and the NYT bestselling author of Wintersong.
Born and raised in sunny Los Angeles, she lived in New York City for ten years before relocating down to Dixie, where she is comfortably growing fat on grits and barbecue. When not writing, she can be found rock-climbing, skydiving, taking photographs, drawing pictures, and dragging her dog on ridiculously long hikes.

The Bengali Nomad's Rant

S. Jae Jones' Wintersong had been one of my favourite YA novels from last year. And it's sequel, SHADOWSONG, came out yesterday (2/6)! And thanks to St. Martin's Press, I had the opportunity of reading the ARC! I personally thought of Shadowsong to be even more exciting (not to mention heart wrenching) than Wintersong, and cannot wait for everyone else to read it! I really hope that everyone gets an opportunity to read it soon. Until then: I have an excerpt from St. Martin's Press to share with everyone.

Read the excerpt here.

What I personally like about this excerpt is that it signals the turn of events in the story. If you've read the excerpt, feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below. Also, keep an eye out for my Shadowsong review on the blog tomorrow. (Bengali readers, keep an eye out for a how-to-receive-ARCs-post as well)

Happy reading!
