This was a fast paced, exciting story! I really enjoyed it, though I was a bit skeptical of the goblin part. However, the story is derived from Irish mythology and it was done beautifully. There is a sub-plot of romance, which is how I like my stories, and there was a beautiful brother and sister connection.The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is that I believe that a major event that happens was glossed over, and should have either been divided into parts or spent more time on. A great emotional response could have been evoked from readers, but instead I found myself turning back and going-- WHA? Oh. Um ok.But other than that-- wonderful read-- mark your calendars!!
