I received this book for review from Sourcebooks.
Summary: ONCE UPON A TIME...
A man was cursed to the Shadowlands, his heart replaced with a cold lump of gold. In legends, he became known as
THE GOBLIN KING.
For a favored few he will grant a wish. Yet, desperately clinging to his waning human soul, his one own desire remains unfulfilled:
A WILLING QUEEN.
But who would consent to move from the modern-day worl into the realm of nightmares? No matter how deep his falor, loving him is dangerous. And the one woman who might dare to try could also destroy forever his chance at a HAPPILY EVER AFTER.
Thoughts: Roan was cursed to the Shadowlands. Now he is legend, The Goblin King. His only care and desire is for gold. But then he is summoned by Eliza and all that changes. Once he has her - she becomes vital to his being. Eliza can make or break his world.
This is the first book that contained a goblin that I enjoyed. The Goblin King was an exciting read. It has a great fairy-tale feel to it. Dark, fresh and tantalizing. I loved that yes Roan is a Goblin, but he's also a cursed man. Husk has created a rich new world. I thought it was a great story, with a beautiful ending.
Score: 4 Stars
