Goblin Hero (CBR7)

More unlikely heroes join the first one.

What’s the title ?

Goblin Hero, by Jim C. Hines, an excellent author I’ve loved to read since I discovered his Princesses novels, and who just decided to go full time authoring this very week ! Congratulations Jim, may you be blessed with many more successes !

Goblin Hero on that South-American River, but French !

And IN French ! Edited by l’Atalante Jeunesse.

What’s it about ?

After his first adventure, Jig has to face the interesting consequences of his actions and gets himself a band of grumpy, deluded and seriously murdery goblin adventurers on the way.  Will our hero’s wits be enough to defeat his new enemy, especially when he discovers that the enemy of your enemy isn’t always your friend ? Read the book if you want to know.

Did you like it ?

Well yeah, of course I liked it. It’s continuing in the same vein as the first one, this time with a full goblin cast, a God, trolls, hobgoblins, pixies and whatnots. As usual, Hines is not too tender on his characters, imbuing them with very serious flaws, but still writing them with a solid sense of humour. We’re still staying inside the mountains but get to know all of it’s inhabitants a lot better than in Goblin Quest.

So how many stars ?

Still, FIVE. This series is solid.

Would you read more books from this author ?

Yes, yes, yes.
