This book felt light and easy, even with the darkness in it. It was a romance about two people being saved by each other.

Meryn used to be a Goblin who stole gold and killed. Now he is back int he real world, 2000 years later. He is lost, but he is smart. He mourns in family, and the darkness of the Goblin hangs over him. But he is a nice guy, a man who just want to live again..if there was something to live for.

Nadine is a nurse who have nightmares (yes goblins there too). He father is in jail for killing her mother and she has blocked that out. She may go on about her life, but there is something there. Something sad. Then Nadine and Meryn meet. Something pulls them together. They are meant to be. But first they have things to go through. He needs to let go of his past and she needs to deal with her past. Not to mention that you know the whole Goblin thing is gonna pop up and mess things up.

A good romance, 2 people just meant to be. Throw in a little paranormal and there you have it.

The first of the cursed band of warriors to turn fully goblin, Meryn surrendered to the lure of gold in order to dull the pain of the loss of his family. Now that the curse is broken and he is back in the real world, Meryn doesn't feel he deserves a second chance at life, until he meets Nadine, a woman who makes him want to take that chance to live and love again.

I really liked For the Love of a Goblin Warrior, the final book in Shona Husk's Goblin King trilogy. This story is just a bit different from most typical mainstream romance in that the leading pair don't spend a lot of the book together. Instead we get just enough of them together to want to cheer them on to their HEA and we get to spend a lot of time delving into their individual back stories and wondering how they will be able to move beyond their pasts to get that HEA.

I liked seeing how former goblin Meryn struggled to fit into a world that jumped thousands of years during the time he was cursed and how he came to grips with his guilt at failing his King and his family. One thing that I really loved about Meryn is that having loved and lost didn't sour him to loving again. I also liked how Meryn and Nadine's individual histories touched and came together, and I really liked the way that the Nadine's father loved her so much that he was willing to sacrifice his own happiness (and freedom) for hers. The fact that Meryn provided the ending to Nadine's mother's favorite fairytale was also a nice touch.

For the Love of a Goblin Warrior was a very enjoyable ending to an enjoyable trilogy and has me looking to see what else Aussie author Husk has written.

This is a talented author, she makes you feel for the characters, I had tears in my eyes a few times, especially in regards to Nadine's father. Watching Meryn adjust to a whole new world was done realistically and made you feel how frustating it would be to go through yourself just being in a country where no one speaks your language, much less if you didn't know anything about modern technology on top of that. I recommend this series for the stories, there is not a lot of action or sex scenes, more of a romance and character study.

What a beautiful writer Shona Husk is and particularly in this series. The men are such thoughtful, caring individuals that goblin or not we easily see why the women are so drawn to them. Merryn was such a torn character but once he made up his mind then his heart and soul were hard to resist. I have loved this series with it's beautiful flow of words and almost poetic sadness at times as these deep thinking characters walk their path to happiness. The happy ever after is well-deserved.
