Book Description

Every fairy tale has to have some basis in fact, right? That's what Eliza thought as she made a desperate plea to the legendary Goblin King. If he could grant her wish, she'd finally be safe. He would protect her. But what would he ask in return...?

Enjoy this short free prequel and a sneak peek of The Goblin King, the first of a highly imaginative new paranormal series by Shona Husk.

This is not a novel or novella story. It's basically an introduction called Summons: The Goblin King for the upcoming novel The Goblin King that will be released October 2011.

Book starts nine years earlier. Eliza's brother Matt is having a house party while their father is out of town on business. While at the party, 16 year old Eliza encounters a little problem with her brother's friend. He is trying to come on to her a little too heavy and she tries to ditch him. While locked in a room listening to him trying to get in, she made a wish to the Goblin King and he answered.

Roan, the Goblin King is from the Shadowlands and is now in the fix realm of Eliza. Though Eliza is young he finds himself drawn to her. He helps Eliza and takes her to the summerland realm where he informs her not to summon him again. When Eliza wakes up she is unable to stop think of the Goblin King and Roan senses this.

This introduction for the upcoming book surely caught my attention and I enjoyed it. It surely accomplished what it set out to do, get my interest for a soon to be released book. I definitely want to find out what happens to the Goblin King and Eliza. I have to say though I am getting a little irritated with these free ebooks that are not novel/ novella but are basically a sneak peek for books that we have to wait months for. I just don't like being excited just to have it come to an abrupt ending. Other than that I still encourage the read, I thought it was good and interesting. I have not read anything by this author and look forward to more books.

Storyline: GOOD
Enjoyment: Fair
Ebook length: 404

5.0 out of 5 stars I love the idea of a Goblin King being the hero August 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a very quick read (I actually enjoyed how quick it was!). It occurs before "The Goblin King" which is the first book in the series. I haven't read The Goblin King yet, and at first I thought, "I am not sure I want to read a prequel about the Goblin King and some girl right before I read the first book in the series with him and another girl." Of course, the author thought of that and it is actually the same girl in both books. The prequel is a short story about how The Goblin King first meets Eliza. It was sweet (and very fast), but I got into it immediately. Since (as I said above), I haven't read the first book in the series I can't say whether this book needs to be read before the first book, but it was published first. I suspect it is just for fun and you could follow the first book without it, but its free (and did I say quick?). I look forward to starting The Goblin King. I liked both 16 year old Eliza and The Goblin King.

I really enjoyed this quickie. Now to pick up the full length book and begin reading :).

The Goblin King is called upon and answers. He gets some of his humanity back. The heroine gets a desire to help reverse his curse and make him human again. Nice read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a long book but intiguing! July 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am pretty sure I may try the next book as the author has sufficiently intrigued me. I am glad the novella was available for free. It gave us a taste and the room to decide for ourselves as the books following this are quite expensive compared to many others. I feel for the lonely king, and like the almost beauty and the beast scenario which will be sure to follow.

However I am not rushing to get the next book. It is on my wish list but I am not certain enough of the authors style and ability to develop the characters to rush out and buy it. I will though, after I read a few others at a better price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Start! June 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a great start to an excellent trilogy. I loved that even though the author was dealing with the not very pretty Goblins, she gave these characters a wonderful human story. This was a novella style book,but packed a lot of information into the package. As soon as I finished it, I quickly downloaded The Goblin King book & started reading. All the characters were memorable. I didn't realize in this book that the author had the story based in Australia. When I did she gave me a great visual of the country. Hope Shona writes a lot more like this series.
A really great read!!

I love the dark cursed hero and love that he's not a vampire, werewolf or fairie! Quick read, but free and an involved enough story that I'm going to pay for the novel!
