“very good short story. It left me wanting to know more about this Goblin King. I admit I was confused alittle because the character decribed in the books does not resemble the book cover at all. ”P.Mitra wrote this review Sunday, June 17, 2012.

“Goblin King by Shona Husk
Paranormal Romance - Oct 1st, 2011
Roan is the Goblin King. He and his surviving men were cursed by a vengeful Druid for a past misdeed that they could not control. As Roan loses his humanity, he becomes
closer to becoming a full and vicious Goblin without morals or scruples but there is one
person who can hold back the tide, if she dares.
Eliza met the Goblin King, and he gave her one of his beads after saving her. She has been the only one in centuries who summoned him for his aid and actually thanked Roan him instead of reviling him. Eliza's belief in him as her savior gave Roan hope. But now a grown up Eliza is trouble again and summons her past savior to help her, he is different from the hero she remembers. Harder. For Roan has become less human and more goblin. She is scared of his ferocity and how he has changed. But can she see past what he has become to the man who is still within?
This a gorgeous world the author has created. The villains in this story are pure evil and I couldn't wait for the hero and heroine to give them their just desserts. However, since both of the main characters have been so battered down by their enemies, they take quite a while to assert themselves which makes me quite frustrated early in the story. Most of Roan's men have succumbed to their goblin side and are now lost forever. I especially mourned the death of Roan's friend. I would love it if the author could find redemption for the poor warriors who have suffered and turned true goblin but I don't see how this would be possible. Much of the story delves on the hopelessness of returning Roan to humanity after many failures. This brings a lot of tension but also made me feel a bit depressed at times.
A heartrending hero and a courageous heroine fight a terrible curse and find love. Those who love fairy-tale like romances should definitely try this book.
