Review: Goblin King
The Hunt is over but the War has just begun.
Against all odds, Janneke has survived the Hunt for the Stag--but all good things come with a cost. Lydian might be dead, but he took the Stag with him. Janneke now holds the mantle, while Soren, now her equal in every way, has become the new Erlking. Janneke's powers as the new Stag bring along haunting visions of a world thrown into chaos and the ghost of Lydian taunts her with the riddles he spoke of when he was alive.
When Janneke discovers the truth of Lydian and his madness, she's forced to see her tormentor in a different light for the first time. The world they know is dying and Lydian may hold the key to saving it.
Torn between her feelings and her duty as the Stag, Janneke must bring her tormentor back to life if she has hopes of keeping her world alive. But the journey is long and hard and this time she won't have Soren for company.
Lydian might be able to stop the worlds from crumbling, but reviving him may cost Janneke the life with Soren she's tried too hard to build. After all, there can only be one King....
I loved the first story in the series, White Stag, so much! So much so that I was trying to figure out when the second book would be released even though the first hadn’t officially been published and to my absolute delight, I discovered it on Wattpad.
Although I read Goblin King online and not an official published copy or ARC, I still devoured it. I will definitely reread this when it does come to an official book format because it was just that good. I love the world the author created and all of her characters in it. They’re so relatable, even though they’re goblins and otherworldly creatures, does that make sense? Probably not. But it just works.
