From the first moment they see each other Dai and Amanda experience an attraction to each other, but each will have to decide to let go of the pasts that hold them back if they going to discover whether the golden threads of attraction that are forming between them hold any promise of a future together.

Coming into the story - considering that Dai and his brother Roan are no longer hideous goblins trapped in the gray shadowlands and the curse that nearly stole their last shreds of humanity is now broken - I was really wondering where Kiss of the Goblin Prince was going to go story wise.

Resuming his life as a human after thousands of years, Dai has some serious issues which are making it hard to just learn how to live again, and only some of them are due to having lived (and planned on dying) as a goblin for so long. So in some ways it is natural that Dai gets the vast majority of the screen time in Kiss of the Goblin Prince. I am totally hero-centric and love magic so the story and the romance still worked for me even though there actually weren't a lot scenes with both Amanda and Dai together and there was with minimal smexy stuff. To me it made sense that Dai and Amanda's pursuit of the attraction between them was a cautious one and I liked that Amanda was willing to take a chance on someone as damaged as Dai. And I liked that Amanda actually had the skills to help Dai - I especially liked the part of the story where Amanda gets Dai to finally speak about his past by letting him tell it to her in one of the dead languages he knows - giving him someone to tell to his story to in a very safe way.

So, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed Dai's story - I actually ended up liking Kiss of the Goblin Prince even more than King of the Goblins - and, after having had a look at the teaser, am looking forward to the next book as Husk's Shadowland series continues with For the Love of a Goblin Warrior.

From now on Shona Husk will always hold a pole position in my gargantuan TBR list: I fell in love with the fertile imagination, fluid prose, and introspective sensitivity of this Australian paranormal, fantasy novels author. My only regret, if any, is that I should have read this captivating Shadowlands series starting from the novella "The Summons: A Goblin King Prequel" and the first full length installment "The Goblin King", in order to fully appreciate the fairy-tale world structure that holds together The Shadowlands (a desolate land populated by the heartless Goblins), The Fixed Realm (our world), and The Birch Foundation (a mysterious organization that facilitates the transition between these two worlds). Reading the series in order would have certainly helped me from the start to understand the main characters's backstories, the role played by the secondary characters, and the connections existing between them, adding to the enjoyment of a book that can be read as a stand-alone without loosing any of its alluring qualities.
Amanda Coulter is a young widow who has given up on happiness after the sudden death of her husband. She works as a youth counselor at the local high-school and her daughter, Brigit, is affected by severe asthma. At the wedding of her sister-in-law, Eliza, Amanda meets the enigmatic and fascinating Dai King. Sparks of attraction fly immediately between them. Dai is Eliza's husband's brother, apparently a normal young man, Welsh scholar, ancient civilization and dead languages expert, and world traveler.

The first two books in the series were excellent reads. I couldn't wait to read about Dai. The story dragged on and was quite boring. There was not enough detail about the dynamics of the growing relationship between Dai and Amanda. The end left too many unanswered questions such as the significance of the spider moving on the tattoo on Dai's chest or what was the outcome of the painful talons around Dai's heart. I was disappointed with the plot and interrelationships among the characters in the installment of the Shadowlands Saga.

Unfortunately, I must say that I did not enjoy this book. It's a romance but had very little romance in it. Much of the book is written from The Hero's perspective. Normally, I love to read a story from the Hero's point of view. But sadly, I found my self very bored with the story and that I was not at all enjoying my "time away."
The story's main focus was on Dai adjusting to his new life and to his new world. This could have been very interesting if it were done right. But, for me it was just very boring and very drawn out. I found myself yawning a LOT and my reading time became very short. Usually, I'm looking for an excuse to stop and read, no matter what I'm doing or where I may be. But with this book, I would literally dread picking up my Kindle. I will not be continuing with this series.

Kiss of the Goblin Prince is the second book in Husk's Shadowland series. I reviewed the first book The Goblin King and loved it because the author veered away from the same old PNR formula and gave me something different. I was hoping she would continue this in Kiss of the Goblin Prince. I won't keep you in suspense though...Husk does it again with Kiss of the Goblin Prince.

In book one we met Roan, the Goblin King, and Eliza, the woman who rescues Roan and his brother Dai from the Goblin curse that imprisoned them in the Shadowlands for 2000 years. This book is about Dai and his struggle to find his place in the fixed realm now that he is truly free to make his own choices for the first time. Dai is scared figuratively and literally. His body is covered in scars from the 4 years he was a slave to the Roman General Claudius. He went from that to being cursed with his fellow soldiers who tried to rescue him. He spent the next 2000 years trying to find a way to break the curse while fighting to keep his humanity and not turn completely goblin. He learned just about everything there is to know, but magic wouldn't work in the Shadowlands so he didn't know how to apply all his knowledge. He has lived with so much guilt and vengeance and rage that it actually manifested itself as a claw that grips his heart.

Once in the fixed realm again, he realizes he can use his magic, but it is no longer used or believed making him possibly the last magic user. I loved how Husk explained Dai's use of magic and the romantic way she used it in the connection between Dai and Amanda. Amanda found the man of her dreams 7 years ago. He died 4 months later and she was left to raise their unborn child. Amanda still wears her wedding band, not willing to let go of what she lost.
