The youngest, half-goblin son of the Emperor has lived his entire life in exile, distant from the Imperial Court and the deadly intrigue that suffuses it. But when his father and three sons in line for the throne are killed in an "accident," he has no choice but to take his place as the only surviving rightful heir. Entirely unschooled in the art of court politics, he has no friends, no advisors, and the sure knowledge that whoever assassinated his father and brothers could make an attempt on his life at any moment. Surrounded by sycophants eager to curry favor with the naïve new emperor, and overwhelmed by the burdens of his new life, he can trust nobody. Amid the swirl of plots to depose him, offers of arranged marriages, and the specter of the unknown conspirators who lurk in the shadows, he must quickly adjust to life as the Goblin Emperor. All the while, he is alone, and trying to find even a single friend . . . and hoping for the possibility of romance, yet also vigilant against the unseen enemies that threaten him, lest he lose his throne–or his life. Katherine Addison's The Goblin Emperor is an exciting fantasy novel, set against the pageantry and color of a fascinating, unique world, is a memorable debut for a great new talent. At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

4.0 exactly what it said it was
The blurb tells you the story and that's exactly what you want. The trick is to find more inside than on the cover and Katherine Addison does that. I gave this 4 stars because I found a lacking of background. I wanted to know why Goblins were less than elves at least to some, why the government is s...

If you'd like info about the story and how I felt about it, check that review out. My feelings aren't that much different after listening to the audiobook. Here ...
