Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 5-8–Beginning where The Goblin Wood (HarperCollins, 2003) ended, this story immediately throws readers into the conflict between the sorceress Makenna and her goblin band and the forces of the Hierarch, led by Master Lazur, a priest of the Realm of the Bright Gods. To escape certain death Makenna, the goblins, and the young knight Tobin fling themselves through a magical gate into the Otherworld. It soon becomes clear that there is something not quite right about the Otherworld and a plan to leave it is desperately sought. At the same time, Tobin's young brother Jeriah learns that the Otherworld is deadly to humans and that Tobin has only a short time to live if he remains there. Master Lazur has the spells to recast the Gate, but will not divulge their hiding place. Jeriah vows to find them and save his brother and in the process uncovers an incredible years-old conspiracy. Whew! The nuances of politics and the nature of good and evil are well explored in this fantasy sequel. Through Jeriah's eyes, readers learn that immense wrongs are often committed to achieve a greater good. However, this book does not stand on its own; in order to appreciate the action and intrigue, readers must be acquainted with the characters and backstory.Sharon Grover, Hedberg Public Library, Janesville, WI

Format: Hardcover
Every few years there comes an author that strikes home with such precision that they remembered for years. These authors have inspired loyalty to such a degree from their readers that these readers follow the author's books between genres and series.

Hilari Bell is such an author. She has written a number of fantastic novels including, The Shield, Sword, and Crown series, The Knight and Rouge series, The Farsala Trilogy, The Prophecy, The Wizard Test, A Matter Of Profit, Song of Power, and now The Goblin Wood Trilogy, each of them better than the last.

In her latest novel The Goblin Gate, Bell revisits the plot of an old standalone novel that was never resolved completely, The Goblin Wood. Although it has been years since readers have entered Makenna and Tobin's world fans expecting a novel just as fantastic as the first will not be disappointed.

The Goblin Gate begins moments after The Goblin Wood ends, but this time instead of Makenna and Tobin being the main characters, the story follows Tobin's younger brother Jeriah, as he tirelessly works to save his brother from the impending doom he has forsaken himself to by entered the new world. Fans expecting more interactions between of Makenna and Tobin such as in The Goblin Wood should not be disappointed though, while of Makenna and Tobin only appear in small inter-chapters between Jeriah's quest, their tenuous situation builds throughout the book, ending with a predicament that will have fans dying to find out what happens next in The Goblin War (the third book in this trilogy.)

Bell once again does a amazing job creating and developing her characters and situations in The Goblin Gate. But even more impressive than the mere building of the characters is the dialog Bell crafts for her characters.

I had no clue that there was more after Goblin Wood and when I found this and Goblin War I had to get them. Just finished this and it was a great as the first which until I read this I felt was good enough to be a stand alone book. I can't wait to read Goblin War.

Great original plot, fantastic world development, second book just as good as the first one, the only area I feel is lacking is character development. I love the rapport between characters, but for fine reason I can't put a finger on tobin's younger brother. I love the new girl supporting character immensely, though.
