My box is still en route, or rather, the label is printed and it hasn’t moved anywhere… BUT… we finally have spoilers today of the February “Goblin King” box by Spearcraft Book Box!
Included in the box are (from what we can see in the picture):
- Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones
- A ‘Wintersong’ sheet music print
- Wintersong and Labyrinth magnets
- A Sarah & Jareth Labyrinth faux-snow-globe type item
- A square Labyrinth button
- A Labyrinth candle… which from the videos online show a lot of glitter in the wax.
- 3 bookmarks, and a couple of small business sized cards (not sure what those are)
- “The Goblin King” theme card explaining the contents
- 2 scented soaps – 1 rose shaped, and 1 violin shaped
- And a double-sided Sarah & Jareth Labyrinth print… the picture from the dance scene, and on the back it has some lyrics from “Dance Magic”.
Here is the book blurb on Wintersong from Goodreads:
All 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.
I’ll do a review whenever the box arrives, but wanted to share these straight away. I love spoilers, and Wintersong sounds like a great book for people who love Labyrinth.
