Yeteveryone—except her best friend shesuddenly has other feelings for—looks down on her because she’s onlyhalf goblin, with no idea what the other half is. She’s always suspected it might be human. But humans, she’sbeen told, aren’t real. They’re only creatures of myth. When the prince of their kingdom is taken for ransom,it’s Ivy’s big chance to prove her worth. And when she learns his captors are human, the rescue missionbecomes personal. The stories were clearly wrong, and now she has a chance to find the truth about herlineage, as well. If she survives… With a small band of warriors at her command, including her best friendturned crush that’s getting harder to hide, Ivy sets out to find the prince and her human family. But the answerslie within secrets and conspiracies that run far deeper than she ever imagined.
I have only read a few goblin books and this one was pretty well done. While I feel it was based more for younger YA. The characters were witty and had great banter. I enjoyed the fact that the main character starts out at the bottom and has to work hard to become the one she wants to be. I don’t want to spoil it for anyone so I won’t say more than that.
A quick fantasy read with just a small amount of romance involved.
About the Author
I was born and raised in Michigan (just look for the mitten-shaped state on the map). I’ve lived here most ofmy life other than the few years I spent in the U.S. Army. At which time I got a chance to experience MO, KS, SC, and CA. I work full time for the court system and in my free time I write YA stories. Pretty much any genre within the YA realm is game for me, but my favorites are fantasy, urban fantasy, paranormal romance, thrillers, lightsci-fi, and some time travel.I also have a big family–I like to consider us the modern day Brady Bunch. When my hubby and I met and got married, he had 3 children from a previous marriage, I had 2 and we have 1 together. It’s a lot of fun though. And I can’t forget my other family members–yep, we’ve got some pets: 4 dogs, 3 cats, and 1 turtle. Everyone in the family has one…I won’t bore you all with their names (unless you really want to know). Okay, you talked me into it! Jack, Pearl, Grr…(yes that’s my dog’s name), Leia, Callie, Mooshoo, Grouchy, and Sorbert. Other than writing some of my other hobbies include: reading (mostly YA of course), singing, swimming, football, soccer, running, camping, sledding, church, hanging with my kids, and traveling. I belong to a fabulous writing group called YA Fiction Fantatics (YAFF) and you guessed it we all write YA!
