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.

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.
In this prequel we get to know how Roan and Eliza, the main characters of The Goblin King ( Shadowlands #1) meet for the first time. Roan is a Celtic king turned into a heartless goblin by a curse that had destroyed his people. He lives in The Shadowlands, a desolated realm populated and ruled by greedy monsters obsessed with gold: the Goblins. Roan visits the Fixed Realm (our world) at will, using people's dreams and nightmares, but with his ugly goblin looks and an empty and cold spot where his heart used to be, he would rather hide in the darkness and dismiss the summons of those humans. Until Eliza, a 16 years old girl from the XXI century, a girl who grew up believing in fairy tales, summons him when she is in danger, and he just cannot resists her call.
"Her mother had said always be careful what you wish for as she'd told stories about a man who'd been cursed for loving gold and had been given a heart of gold as punishment. Damned to be goblin, now he was forced to answer other people's wishes. She closed her eyes. She had to answer hers. "I wish the Goblin King would take me away from here."
To save her from an overzealous suitor, Roan answers Eliza's call and takes her in a place of light and life (the Summerland) where he can show himself in his original human appearance without scaring her.Read more ›
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.
