Description

What would you do if the stories of your childhood suddenly began coming to life?  Teagan Wylltson’s best friend, Abby, dreams that horrifying creatures—goblins, shapeshifters, and beings of unearthly beauty but terrible cruelty—are hunting Teagan.  Abby is always coming up with crazy stuff, though, so Teagan isn’t worried.  Until Finn Mac Cumhaill arrives, with his killer accent and a knee-weakening smile.  Either he’s crazy or he’s been haunting Abby’s dreams, because he’s talking about goblins, too . . . and about being born to fight all goblin-kind.  Finn knows a thing or two about fighting.  Which is a very good thing, because this time, Abby’s right.  The goblins are coming.

The e-book includes a sample chapter from the sequel In the Forests of the Night by Kersten Hamilton.

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 18, 2010 – Making the leap from picture books and middle-grade novels to YA, Hamilton mines Celtic myth and fairy tales for this engaging adventure, first in the Goblin Wars series. Sixteen-year-old Teagan Wylltson's life may not be entirely ordinary, with an eccentric artist mother, techno-savvy little brother, and an after-school job that involves primate research, but at least she understands it. When Finn Mac Cumhaill, a teenage cousin from a family of "Travelers," comes to stay with them, things get seriously weird. Now Teagan is seeing goblins in the shadows, and mythical monsters are stalking her family. Is Finn, who claims to fight the goblins, the cause or a symptom of something worse? To save someone she loves, Teagan and Finn make a perilous journey into a treacherous supernatural realm, where she learns the truth about her family and its relationship to the goblins. While the plot meanders at times, there's no denying the solid concept or attention to detail present in the overall story. Even the most myth-savvy readers will revel in the clever twists and surprises. Ages 12–up.

Review

This was definitely a good book, and is definitely worth your time. The plot was different, I fell in love with Finn, and the way she wrote was very interesting. While the book will most indefinitely keep you awake reading it and make sure you won't stop reading, I felt that this book could've have been more descriptive in a few places and a few things confused me. But a must-read!
