After reading the novella, which I really enjoyed, I was really looking forward to this one. I was a little disappointed in this one. I enjoyed that it was different- a goblin as the romantic lead. Roan was a decent hero. I did think he was too mopey (for lack of a better word) at times. I was disap...

Confession, I love the movie Labyrinth in unnatural and fan-girlish ways. So anything with goblins that sounds like it could remotely remind me of the movie, I will give a shot. And that is why I picked up The Goblin King. Was the book anything like Labyrinth? No... well except for the part about th...

You know... at some point, you just get kinda tired at all the shifters and vampires. What an interesting idea. So we combine The Labyrinth with Beauty and the Beast (hope none of the readers have ever gotten near Celebrian...) and... Well, I kept looking at the cover to keep the mental image of...

She doesn't allow her characters an easy out, and she definitely presents them (and readers) with unexpected challenges.The Goblin King is ...

Not for me. Just couldn't get into it. Not sure why, wasn't connecting to the characters and the tropes all felt a bit same old.

The Goblin King was a sure hit with me right from the get go. It took a fresh new look on goblins—who only ever get brief spots as creepy villains in fantasy—and turned it into an epic Beauty and the Beast retelling. Long ago a group of Celtic men trying to defy the Roman Empire were wrongly accus...
