Synopsis:

Teagan Wylltson’s best friend, Abby, dreams that horrifying creatures—goblins, shape-shifters, 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. Her life isn’t in danger. In fact, it’s perfect. She’s on track for a college scholarship. She has a great job. She’s focused on school, work, and her future. No boys, no heartaches, no problems.

Until Finn Mac Cumhaill arrives. Finn’s a bit on the unearthly beautiful side himself. He has a killer accent and a knee-weakening smile. And either he’s crazy or he’s been haunting Abby’s dreams, because he’s talking about goblins, too... and about being The Mac Cumhaill, 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.


Tyger Tyger (Goblin Wars, #1)

My Thoughts

Goblins have never been so terrifying.

One tragedy has opened a whole new world of deadly secrets. The thing I loved most about this book was the mythology woven onto the pages. I have seen plenty of books with goblins, but none that focused solely
 on them and their origins. 

The characters in this book were some of the most memorable and heart warming I have ever met. They are all unique and at times kooky, but so much fun.

Teagan is one of the more serious characters in the book. She is a hard worker with clear goals in mind that she will not let anyone stand in the way of. I liked her determination and strength of will throughout the story. She is a really kind hearted girl who can't stand seeing anyone or anything hurt. She uses her skills to help others and is determined to do so for the rest of her life. 

Abby is Teagan's best friend and quirky sidekick. She is the more artistic of the two and knows how to kick some butt. She is also the love expert and loves to give advice even when the person doesn't know they need it. Abby is so much fun and I can't wait to see more of her in the sequel. 

Aiden is Teagan's little brother and so adorable. The little devil loves to get into mischief, but finds it very easy to charm anyone he meets. His presence throughout the book was so much fun he could lighten the mood no matter what trouble they were in.

My absolute favorite character was Finn. He is the charming goblin hunter who could sweeten anyone's day. He is also very confident and even a bit cocky at times, but he also has a heart of gold and would jump to the rescue no matter the danger. He is a true hero who has seen the best and worst of life at times, but still believes in the goodness of others.

Delve into the world of goblins and magic in "Tyger Tyger"!
