Billy Smith is having a rough first day of high school. The new kid at exclusive Francis Drake Prep, Billy embarrasses himself in front of fiery, beautiful Lexi Aquino. He makes an instant enemy in Kurt Novac, the school's surly star quarterback. Then suddenly Billy, Lexi, and Kurt are mysteriously transported to an underworld teeming with goblins, strange animal hybrids, and powerful magic; the fact that they're stuck there is probably Billy's fault, too.
With help from an unlikely goblin leader named Hop, the teens soon discover that goblins can be both fierce and friendly, with their own rich language, culture, and history - a history that foretells of a human arriving to claim the Goblin Crown and lead them to victory against the deadly, invading Hanorians. Could Billy, anxious, awkward Billy, be the mythical Goblin King? Could saving the goblin race be his destiny and the key to getting him, Lexi, and Kurt back home?

Good Reading and Good Story, but mismatched
I love stories. I love goblins. And I very much enjoyed The Goblin Crown! However, I disagree with an artistic decision that the reader, or perhaps the producer, made in how to read it. The reader is very good, but read this Young Adult story in a way that seemed more fitting to a children's story. It seemed a poor fit to use a "storytime" reading voice when talking about darker subjects such the dismemberment of one of the characters. Certainly, YA fiction does have a tricky line to dance upon, trying to appease young and old alike. Nevertheless, the mismatch made for some moments when I was pulled out of the enjoyment of the otherwise talented reading of an enjoyable and well-crafted story.
