After barely surviving an adventure he never wanted, the scrawny little nearsighted goblin called Jig is now known as Jig Dragonslayer, and has the power of healing, thanks to the forgotten god he worships. But being a hero isn't all it's cracked up to be. Not when the goblin leader wants him dead, and everyone else actually expects him to keep doing heroic-and incredibly dangerous-things.

Heroic goblin Jig, now known as a dragonslayer, embarks on his latest adventure, along with his pet fire-spider, when he is ordered by the conniving head goblin to defeat a terrifying enemy who is determined to destroy or enslave all of ogrekind.
