5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the Zanth novels, April 11, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Goblin Quest (Mass Market Paperback)
I loved this book, it is one of my favorites now and I know I will want to revisit it often. I also bought the other two books in the series. Each book is stand alone great. I laughed so hard I almost fell out of my chair and yet there is also a lesson to be learned in the book. Great read.

Jig is a goblin. He lives with the rest of the goblins in a magic mountain. He is the runt and gets bullied often. A large mean goblin, Porak, forces him to go with his company while they check out the tunnels. They stop to drink and play craps while Jig is forced to wander off further in the tunnels. He comes upon a group of adventurers. Prince Barius, a warrior, Prince Ryslind, a mage, Darnak, a dwarf and a captured young elf girl. She is a thief who was caught by Darnak and is being forced to accompany the trio on their quest.

Jig is the only one left after the goblins encounter the adventurers and he is forced to lead the party deeper into the mountain. They are in search of the Rod of Creation. Jig knows what a goblin is and does, he is a coward and he runs. Unfortunately that is not possible for our hero. So his great idea is to lead the party into all of the most dangerous places he knows. The only thing is that he only knows the goblin tunnels.

As you can imagine the journey is a hoot and the adventures are swift and deadly. From one death trap to another, Jig has already decided that death is his destination. But as they travel Jig learns things not the least is that Darnak serves a God who helps him, by healing injuries due to battle. Jig thinks that might come in handy if he can find a God who won't mind a goblin worshiper. There must be at least one God who needs a servant.

I found the adventure wonderful, exciting, and delicious. I look forward to the other two books in the series. GOBLIN HERO and GOBLIN WAR if they are as good as GOBLIN QUEST, I will dive in and devour each of them just as I did this one. Great Reading.
