Scattered amongst the towers of Clovenstone Keep, goblins fight, thrash and bash each other from the moment they're born. And when they're not doing that they're stealing, or making raids on the softling humans along the Nibbled Coast to bash and steal from them instead.
But Skarper isn't like other goblins. Oh, he quite enjoys a bit of thieving, but he's cunning and clever about it, and he can read. Unfortunately he's just a bit too clever for his own good, and that's how he ends up plunging headfirst into an adventure. Er... literally.
With cloud maidens, trolls, giants, a would-be-hero, a clever princess, goblins, boglins, dragonets, dragonbone men, a dampdrake and three really bad sorcerers there's rarely a dull moment in Skarper's unplanned adventure.
What starts out as a too-clever comment is soon followed by fights, flights, captors, captives, arguments and escapes. The magic of Clovenstone is waking and Skarper's life swiftly becomes more interesting than he can handle.
With an uncommon hero who isn't the least bit heroic - or has any plans to be - GOBLINS is fast-paced, funny, clever and creative. A great bit of magical mayhem for everyone to enjoy.
