Product Description

Product Description

The reawakening of ancient sorcery is bringing new creatures to the world of Clovenstone. A network of tunnels is sneaking into the heart of goblin territory. Skarper and his friends try to halt this underground invasion, but the dwarves - ruthless, cunning and covered in mole-droppings - are a dangerous enemy. The hapless heroes of GOBLINS must defend their magical castle in a fabulously action-packed sequel from one of the master storytellers of children's fantasy fiction.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good sequel 8 Oct 2013
By Sussman TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
This book is the second of a trilogy. It might help to read the first book Goblins, also written by Phillip Reeve who is an author of a number of award-winning books such as the Mortal Engines and Larklight series. His latest offering is mixed with bloodthirsty, squabbling, greedy and somewhat dim-witted Globins and some rather crafty Dwarves.
The Goblins live in the towers at Clovenstone keep, which are described charmingly by Reeve, their treasure is threatened by Dwarves who which to steal it.

In this book the language throughout is highly descriptive, hilarious and gory. You are introduced to a new character the highly charismatic Etty, a Dwarf girl who joins the Globlins against her own community.
This is a good sequel, as this tale of Goblins vs. Dwarves is an utterly charismatic delight and younglings as well old-lings alike will love it, as we did, a real page turner.

5.0 out of 5 stars An exciting sequel! 9 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback
I really enjoyed Goblins...so much so when I heard there was a sequel I hot footed to my local bumwipe shop to pre-order an early copy.
The story smoothly picks up where book one concluded, and the reader is right back in the heart of Clovenstone (which in my view is an absorbingly fresh take on a fantasy realm).
Henwyn and Scarper are literally thrown straight away into a new adventure, with all the previous book's characters in support....plus a host of interesting new ones. This time they are trying to defeat the dastardly dwarves who are out to steal their lake of Slowsilver.
I don't want to give away any plot spoilers, so suffice to say, if you enjoyed Goblins, you are in for some delicous second helpings with Goblins vs Dwarves! And if you haven't read book one, give that a go first, as this story relies on the reader having some in-knowledge.
Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Notch 15 Jun 2014
By Mrs. K. A. Wheatley TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
I was first introduced to Philip Reeve with his marvellous teen series Mortal Engines. Goblins, and its sequel Goblins vs Dwarves is a very different kettle of fish, and much more suitable for younger readers, although just as marvellous.

It does help if you have read Goblins first, as this follows directly on from the first book and reintroduces many of the characters and themes in the original book, expanding and enriching the fantasy landscape that Reeve creates so beautifully.

In this book Scarper the Goblin and his human friend Henwyn need to save their beloved Clovenstone from the advances of some power hungry dwarves.

Funny, clever, at times rather sad and always intriguing, this is a wonderful book and I can't wait to read the next one.
