When I managed to get this book- I was shocked outta my gourd! I didn't think I'd get it- but violà - The Goblin Crown by Robert Hewitt Wolfe! Here it is and I couldn't be happier. I have to say that for starters: the cover!

I am always loving on book covers and this one gives me great pleasure for a couple of reasons. Number one, it reminds me of The Hobbit, by J. R. R. Tolkien- the movie. Did you see the original, animated movie? The goblin on this cover reminds me so much of the style and features, thus reminding me of my dad. He's the one who got me in to books, especially fantasy! I'm also in love with the detailing. There was a war going on in this book, with a few children caught up in the crossfire and this cover shows just how hazardous that journey was! It's neither bright nor gory, it just shows what's to be expected and I appreciated that.

I'd never heard of Wolfe before The Goblin Crown: Billy Smith and the Goblins but I think I'll be looking for more. Then again, I had- I just hadn't realized it! The dude's hand are all over my favorite shows: The Dresden Files, The 4400 and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine! But this isn't about shows; my review is based on both my thoughts and those of my son on this tale.
The story is about three kids who are supernaturally taken from this world and transported into an underground domain of goblins, magic and mystifying creatures that remind you of the R.O.U.S.'s of The Princess Bride. Lexi, Kurt and Billy are on a mission to discover the identity of the heir to the goblin throne and a king who's desperately needed. There's non-stop action, lessons to be learned and some very admirable qualities that shine...
