Product description

"An intriguing story, engagingly told. Who would have thought a goblin could make such a compelling hero? Darkly Celtic, richly imagined, this is paranormal romance at its best." Juliet Marillier, award-winning author of Daughter of the Forest Once upon a time ... A man was cursed to the Shadowlands, his heart replaced with a cold lump of gold. In legends, he became known as the Goblin King. For a favored few he will grant a wish. Yet, desperately clinging to his waning human soul, his own desire remains unfulfilled: a willing Queen. But who would consent to move from the modern-day world into the realm of nightmares? No matter how intoxicating his touch, no matter how deep his valor, loving him is dangerous. And the one woman who might dare to try could also destroy him forever."

I first encountered this book on Goodreads and the cover and summary had me entering into their giveaway. Although I did not win, I was lucky enough for this to be one of the books my librarian friend had received and ended up giving to me. I read it the day I got it. I was not disappointed. When I first started reading, the book started reminding me about Jim Henson's 1986 movie The Labyrinth. The Goblin King, the one woman he can't resist, and the wish for the Goblin King's help. But thats where the similarities ended. The story starts as we are introduced to Roan, the Goblin King, as he is being summoned by Eliza, the one woman he can not refuse. Eliza is suddenly thrown into Roan's struggle to not become a monster. This book was very well written, and the pull between Eliza and Roan was hard to deny. I recently saw that Shona Husk has also written a Prequel to this book, and I can't wait to pick it up! I loved this book and I look forward to reading more by this author.
