E as the story progresses Janneke becomes and nlikeable and I could honestly True Colours (Somerset, use some fresh air so to speak Her constant psychology lectures on Soren and on his mistakes and faults as if she s figured it all out are all the grating to read when she has the exact same problems and possibly makes even bigger mistakes andestionable choices in their relationship Especially when it comes to eye to eye communication and forgiveness I like imperfect main characters but Janneke s level of hypocrisy is a little too much for me at times Ocassionally it felt like I was reading the author s own personal thoughts on certain topics rather than the characters and that too took me out of the story because it wasn t just woven in like I d expect it to it read like story cut to a paragraph of personal notes story And just to clarify I m not bothered by an author trying to send a personal message about a topic that might be close to their heart obviously I m just bothered by the way it was inserted here because it caused a disruption in the flow of the book Also side note Where did Diaval come from all of a sudden Her introduction could have been made a little impactful imho As it stands I want to care about her and Janneke s relationship but I have a hard time finding reasons to emotionally invest because I still feel like I have no idea who she even isAfter all that I have to say that I did like the general plot very much still and I plan to continue reading the series But Goblin King wasn t my favorite in the Permafrost saga so farFavorite moments Hel s trials especially the third That one really hurt backstory on LydianThank you for this ARC to Wednesday Books and Netgalley I found this to be a wonderful seuel to The Stag and I am so glad I was able to snag it when it was read now I could not put this down once I had started reading and it just kept me invested the entire duration of the novel I adore the combo of fae and Norse mythology it is The Year of the Beast uniue and makes this one of my favorite series for YA fantasy no doubtJanneke is such a fierce MC there is no way to not think she is amazing She has been to hell and back and she is still surviving I know sometimes life can knock you down but she is the epitome of getting backp and not stopping I think this is all a message we need sometimes especially with I received an e ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review Review can also be found on Milky Way of BooksI enjoyed the seuel As I had with White Stag this story is filled with mysteries and action and humor as both Janneke and Soren try to navigate their new positions of power and their growing dread as something far sinister threatens Permafrostand the worldThe mix of nordic mythology and the culture of the goblins was fascinating to read and the travels the gang had as they tried to solve the mysteries behind Janneke s dreams and the threat of RagnarokThe ending despite its seemingly good resolve gave me a cliffhanger that was very very terrifying Every bit as masterfully written as WHITE STAG Kara Barbieri s GOBLIN KING feels like than the continuation of a fabulous tale but the beginning of a new chapter in the lives of these amazing charactersAs Janneke discovers that reining in the power she possesses is seemingly beyond her grasp Is there a reason she is caught in limbo Her world is dying and her tormentor may hold the key to saving it and nlocking her powers but isn t he dead Janneke must play ro ARC received This series is so com.

This doesn t contain any real plot spoilers but fair warning in case you prefer to go into a book completely blindI was very excited to pick p Goblin King after White Stag was such a surprise hit for me Any small things I had to criticize about it fell flat in comparison to the interesting take on mythology the ruthlessness of the world and the goblins inhabiting it and the The Bride In Law unconventional and intriguing main character that was chosen to tell this tale I enjoyed that Janneke wasn t yet another copypaste bland no personality heroine and that she came with a lot of imperfections and struggles I enjoyed the adventures even though at times it felt like the stakes weren t really as high as they should be but the pacing was good and it helped move the story forward so it worked out for me Unfortunately Goblin King didn t iron out any of the small issues I already had with its predecessor but added onto them It had most of all a very big tonal problem in my opinion The being told it s high stakes but feeling it s low stakes thing is still present and at this point because it doesn t change much it s starting to take away from my enjoyment of the story while reading It s not at all impactful if I just learn about how big and bad a mythological creature in thisniverse supposedly is if I only learn this information the moment said creature appears on the pageFurther the Permafrost is harsh and cold and grim and seemingly pretty far removed from our current society Why is it then that it feels like I m still listening to a 17 year old teenager from any random city in the States and her found family loving group of friends instead of a 100 year old trauma hardened supernatural being and her band of warriors advisors and her king This story touches on so many heavy topics mental and physical abuse rape torture eating disorders and various other mental health aspects as well as the recovery and the relapsing that are tied to them and I have no problem with Lhéritier des Drakos using a little humor to brightenp this otherwise rather grimdark atmosphere but it felt too childish at times monster cock jokes where no monster cock jokes needed to be clarification in reference to an actual rooster like being but come on calling each other limp noodles and so on Do you even have noodles in your world It s just an example of course but things like this REALLY took me out of the story and made it so much less immersive than it otherwise could have been and thus stood in such stark contrast to the rest of the story that it simply didn t work for me Like I said tonal problem I didn t enjoy the writing as much in this one either and felt like I was being told every single development with the characters rather than being shown it I ve been thinking this in book one sometimes too but maybe not as much Here it becomes especially apparent between Janneke and Soren and the The Italians Christmas Housekeeper/The Baby The Billionaire Demands/The Innocents Shock Pregnancy/Sheikhs Secret Love-Child (Secret Heirs of Billionaires Book 18) ups and downs in their relationship but also between the side characters It s not necessary to spell out what someone means with a certain action every time and neither is it necessary to elaborate on every thought that Janneke has Since we re stuck inside her head anyways I d prefer to be allowed to interpret some of her ideas and feelings on my own Same goes for Soren s thoughts and actions which also get explained tos in great detail by Janneke nearly every timeI m starting to think simply adding multiple POVs would have been beneficial Both to make following different people s standpoints organic and becaus. The Hunt is over but the War has just begunAgainst all odds Janneke has survived the Hunt for the Stag but all good things come with a cost Lydian might be dead but he took the Stag with him Janneke now holds the mantle while Soren now her eual in every way has become the new Erlking Janneke's powers as the new Stag bring along haunting visions of

Pelling to me I ve thought about the first one often since reading it last year One of the memorable goblin fantasies out there Thank you to the publisher via NetGalley for my copy in exchange for an honest review HOLY SHIT I CANT BELIEVE I JUST GOT AN ARC FOR ONE OF MY MOST ANTICIPATED RELEASES OF THE YEAR I couldn t change the horrors of my past but I could still fix the problems of the future Rating 35 Goblin King is a solid follow This Soul Magic up to the first book in the series White Stag Initially I was a little hesitant jumping back into this because it had been so long since I read the first book and while I remembered all of the big events that happened I was worried there was a good chunk of this book I forgot Luckily for me though the author did a fantastic job of recapping the events of book one without dragging this story down and I found myselfickly reminded why I loved this dark gritty world and these characters so much With that being said let s dive straight into the breakdown of what worked and didn t work for me in this seuelWhat I Liked Dark ice cold world And when I say ice cold I mean it literally I loved the world building in the first book and I still love it just as much in this one The only thing colder than the temperature in this book may be the goblins and I am so here for it The author also does a fantastic job of mixing mythology into this story to allow readers to see some of the horrors Janneke and her friends will face in the The Ex Who Hired Her upcoming pages and worked so incredibly well for this book Epic adventure Goblin King is without a doubt much fast paced than the first book The characters go on multipleests which had me flying through this in no time When one problem is solved about ten arise and the characters find themselves in some sticky predicaments I received a copy of this book via NetgalleyAs in the first book Janneke does not feel like she is 117 years old she feels like a 17 years old teenager who lacks a certain maturity and wisdom She has a sense of duty and she is willing to make sacrifices for the greater good but it still felt like she was a regular teenager most of the time and not someone who has lived for over 100 years It gets better near the end though she gets philosophical and attuned to her new powers and new responsibilities as the StagJanneke changed a lot since the beginning of White Stag probably because she accepted the fact that she belonged to the Permafrost She went from hating every goblin and not believing they could feel anything positive to having a boyfriend they even say I love you to each other and a best friend but she would never say it out loud By the way where did Diaval came from I am not sure if I missed something in the first book or if she just Netgalley is really too good to me I loved the first story in the series White Stag so much So much so that I was trying to figure out when the second book would be released even though the first hadn t officially been published and to my absolute delight I discovered it on Wattpad Although I read Goblin King online and not an official published copy or ARC I still devoured it I will definitely reread this when it does come to an official book format because it was just that good I love the world the author created and all of her characters in it They re so relatable even though they re goblins and otherworldly creatures does that make sense Probably not But it just worksCheck out my full review and others on The Reading Conspiracy. The Stag Janneke must bring her tormentor back to life if she has hopes of keeping her world alive But the journey is long and hard and this time she won't have Soren for companyLydian might be able to stop the worlds from crumbling but reviving him may cost Janneke the life with Soren she's tried to hard to build After all there can only be one Kin.
