Review :: The Goblins of Bellwater :: Molly Ringle

** I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own**

So, this time I’m sharing just part of the book description from Goodreads – by all means pop on over and check it out if you want to see more =)

Most people have no idea goblins live in the woods around the small town of Bellwater, Washington. But some are about to find out.

Skye, a young barista and artist, falls victim to a goblin curse in the forest one winter night, rendering her depressed and silenced, unable to speak of what happened. Her older sister, Livy, is at wit’s end trying to understand what’s wrong with her. Local mechanic Kit would know, but he doesn’t talk of such things: he’s the human liaison for the goblin tribe, a job he keeps secret and never wanted, thrust on him by an ancient family contract.

Not to sound like a broken record but, this cover! I feel like there are so many amazing covers this year! I might have to do a blog post in January of my favourite covers of 2017 (assuming I can narrow it down!)

This is a new adult paranormal romance – which in this case means there is sex and a lot of it! In fact, sometimes it felt like the goblin curse was there largely so the characters would get sexy. This was a bit of a surprised to me, since I was expecting YA (totally my fault – I have no idea what I even based this assumption on!)

The world/mythology building was pretty brief, but enough to satisfy me – and I really liked this imagining of goblins and other fae, which was a bit different from others I’ve read lately. There is also a great ‘quest’ aspect to the story, which  felt was really well done.

Overall an entertaining read, I gave this one three stars.

The Goblins of Bellwater by Molly Ringle is out now from Central Avenue Publishing.

I received a review copy in exchange for an honest review, but only chose to read it because it sounded like something I would enjoy (life’s too short to read books we don’t think we’ll enjoy). All opinions on my blog are my own, and I wouldn’t tell you it a book was good if I didn’t really think so.
