her life, nineteen-year-old Liesl has heard tales of the beautiful,
mysterious Goblin King. He is the Lord of Mischief, the Ruler
Underground, and the muse around which her music is composed. Yet, as
Liesl helps shoulder the burden of running her family’s inn, her dreams
of composition and childish fancies about the Goblin King must be set
aside in favor of more practical concerns.
But when her sister
Käthe is taken by the goblins, Liesl journeys to their realm to rescue
her sister and return her to the world above. The Goblin King agrees to
let Käthe go—for a price. The life of a maiden must be given to the
land, in accordance with the old laws. A life for a life, he
says. Without sacrifice, nothing good can grow. Without death, there can
be no rebirth. In exchange for her sister’s freedom, Liesl offers her
hand in marriage to the Goblin King. He accepts.
Down in the
Underground, Liesl discovers that the Goblin King still inspires
her—musically, physically, emotionally. Yet even as her talent blossoms,
Liesl’s life is slowly fading away, the price she paid for becoming the
Goblin King’s bride. As the two of them grow closer, they must learn
just what it is they are each willing to sacrifice: her life, her music,
or the end of the world
