For a limited time only, download the first book in the Goblin Wars series for just $2.99! What would you do if the stories of your childhood suddenly began coming to life? Teagan Wylltson's best friend, Abby, dreams that horrifying creatures -- goblins, shapeshifters, and beings of unearthly beauty but terrible cruelty -- are hunting Teagan. Abby is always coming up with crazy stuff, though, so Teagan isn't worried. Until Finn Mac Cumhaill arrives, with his killer accent and a knee-weakening smile. Either he's crazy or he's been haunting Abby's dreams, because he's talking about goblins, too . . . and about being born to fight all goblin-kind. Finn knows a thing or two about fighting. Which is a very good thing, because this time, Abby's right. The goblins are coming. The e-book includes a sample chapter from the sequel In the Forests of the Night by Kersten Hamilton.

This could have been a good book the author seemed to enjoy leaving key details up to the reader, such as the passing of time and the making of sense. Everything happened at a convienent time for the author and the characters flopped around on their little puppet strings throught the whole tale.

This was an amazing book... I can't wait to read the rest of the trilogy! This novel is well paced, suspenseful, and full of fantasy.
