Has anyone read this book/series?   I just started the first one and I love the new perspective!   I have been a gamer for ages and a GM for several years now and I always like to put insome unlikely element into my worlds.   My favorite was a helpful kobold that thought he was a hero, so I am really enjoying Jig and his fire spider. :)

Also, does anyone know how the book  "the company of Ogres" measures up with the Goblin books?  I am enjoying this lighter-hearted fantasy after a long time leaning toward very dark fantasy.  :)

 

Cheers,

I have the first two books in the Goblin series on my TBR but haven't tried them yet--I've heard good things though!

Hee hee Spudie, I love your dancing broccoli!

 

I finished Goblin Quest and it was wonderful.  I love it!  I have ordered the 2nd one from a local bookstore, I just cannot wait. :)  I hope you will enjoy it too.

Okay, that settles it...I will get to Goblin Quest this week. :) I originally bought it because the author is a member of one of my Yahoo groups, and when it was mentioned, it sounded interesting. The third one in the series, Goblin War, will be out in March. (psssssssssst....add it to your wishlist now. I just added it and I'm #1 on the WL...get in there early!) :)
