    1 thought on “The Goblin Gate”

    1. Story time!Several years ago I used to be in a magical place called Middle School. It sucked. Aside from the book fair that came twice a year. I'd load up my pockets with money, skip lunch to peruse the shelves, and come home loaded with books. One of these books, oh so many years ago, was the first book in this series The Goblin Wood.I read the book quickly and rather enjoyed it, it having satisfied my pre-teen self, and concluded it wasn't all that bad of a story. It wasn't a favorite, but it [...]

    2. The distinction between YA and adult fantasy fiction is blurry. This one is considered Young Adult, which I certainly am not, but I found it thoroughly enjoyable. It's a portal story (one where people go from one world, usually ours, to another through some kind of gateway), but in this case, the portal connects two different fantasy worlds. In the first, there is an imminent threat from cannibalistic barbarians, an inquisition against unofficial users of magic, and a corrupt political system. T [...]

    3. The second book in the Goblin Wood trilogy. There's less innocence than the first book, and it moves a little slow, but as with all of Bell's books I've read, there are some deep themes and great character development. I'm looking forward to cracking open Book 3.

    4. This is a good book, on its own merits. It picks up right after The Goblin Wood lets off, and focuses primarily on the ones left behind. Features the return of some cool minor characters, some excellent (and hard-driven) bargains, and good schemes. It is a heavy shift of focus from "The Goblin Wood," and is much more interested in the threats to the humans in the realm, which were just a distant ethical argument in the first book.There are interludes with Tobin and Makenna sprinkled throughout, [...]

    5. First off, I had read the first book quite a while back Goblin Woodd and have reread it up to three times and once again, I was captivated by it. When it ended, I was left wanting for more, this couldn't be how it ended? Just recently I found out that this was out Goblin Gate, as well as a third bookGoblin War, and I jumped at the chance to read it!:1. It was hard to get into the story because I wanted to see more about what happened with Tobin and Makenna. This story was mainly told by what's h [...]

    6. Review taken from my blog, The Haunting of Orchid Forsythia.First Sentence: "It will be dawn soon," Jeriah told the priest who rode beside him. After quickly devouring The Goblin Wood I had to read The Goblin Gate, which meant putting off a couple of review books for a day. I know, bad blogger, but I needed to know what would happen next and couldn't imagine waiting to start it.Did it live up to my expectations, yes. Was it just as good as the first books, yes. Although I did not love it as much [...]

    7. The sorceress, along with her goblins, have vanished into the Otherworld. The one thing Jeriah wasn’t expecting was for his brother, Tobin, to follow after them. Tobin is hailed a hero, sacrificing his life for the cause. And, as Jeriah learns, sacrificing his life is right, for the Otherworld drains all magic from those who venture there, and for those without magic, such as Tobin, it slowly kills them. But as much as Jeriah wants to rescue his brother, there is nothing anyone is willing to d [...]

    8. My summary:Jeriah started this terrible mess that led to his brother going to the Otherworld with the hedgewitch, Makenna. He has to fix it. But fixing it is impossible. No one will help him. The Priest who could open the gate is more interesting in relocating the realm and doesn’t care that Jeriah bother Tobin will die in the Otherworld. He watches Jeriah and prevents his every effort to help his brother. Jeriah’s father believes him useless and considers Tobins death to be inevitable. Jeri [...]

    9. So, I will start off with the negatives here. I think this is obviously aimed at a younger audience, which isn’t necessarily a negative, but it is something I noticed. It is fairly basic prose, which can sometimes get a little tiring. There were also a lot of exclamation marks, and that often made it seem more juvenile. They weren’t really necessary.However, I still really enjoyed this. Its just a fun story. There’s something about this that just caught my attention, and I really appreciat [...]

    10. Compared to the first book in the series, I liked this one much less. In The Goblin Wood, I really enjoyed the development of Makenna as a strong female character along with how Tobin became much more relatable and respectable. I was really looking forward to reading more about these characters and their relationships in The Goblin Gate, but they were relegated to background characters as Jeriah and all the intrigue at the City of Steps took place. While it was interesting to watch the lies get [...]

    11. I love Hilari Bell, and I loved The Goblin Wood - but this book suffered from middle-book syndrome, in that it felt as though it merely existed to set up the last book in the series. It's an enjoyable read because the plot is well paced and the book is cleanly written, but at the end it felt like a bit of a letdown. I will say, though, that Hilari Bell made me like Jeriah, which I'd never thought could happen.That's the best part of this book, and it's something that's equally well done in The G [...]

    12. I knew I had to read this book after finishing The Goblin Wood, which I read on day 18. I was a bit disappointed that the protagonist of The Goblin Gate was Jeriah. I didn’t really like him in the first book. Though I liked him better in this book, it irritated me that he was always whining about getting his brother back. Whining to people about it isn’t going to convince them to change their minds about helping you. Convince them without whining.We do get to see more of Makenna and Tobin in [...]

    13. This book was monotonous and boring a complete let down compared to the first book . If it weren't for Cogswhallop and Daroo showing up I would have stopped reading. The book was setup with the chapters being about Jeriah trying to find Master Lazur's spell notes on opening the gate to the Otherworld and "Interludes" at the end only a few pages long about Makenna and Tobin in the Otherworld. The Otherworld was so much more interesting, the book should have been more about the Goblins adventures [...]

    14. Sequel to the Goblin Wood, which I read so long ago that I'd forgotten most of it. Jeriah tries to rescue his brother Tobin from the Otherworld (where he escaped to with Makenna the hedgewitch and a bunch of goblins at the end of the previous book). He feels responsible for some family disgrace and is one of the few people that know his brother will die if not brought back quickly. Lots of court politics make this a little confusing, but the goblin characters are great. Not fully resolved - hope [...]

    15. Definitely not as good as the first book. Actually, the whole premise of this book seems forced - Makenna and Tobin are stuck in a land that's going to kill them, and now Jeriah has to save them, but first he has to contend with the evil Master Lazur. Ok, once you get past the premise, Jeriah's adventures do seem interesting. I think the magic of the first book was in the ending that was resolved, but not quite resolved - this one just ends with an obvious cliff hanger. Ugh, now I have to wait t [...]

    16. A very interesting, engaging, and hard to put down book, I read it each night starting at 10:00, I only planned to read for an hour a night but found myself staying up until the early hours of the morning engrossed in what was going to happen next. The pace of the book was fast, just the way I like it, and kept it interesting the entire way through. Not many bad things I can say about this book, it's a solid read

    17. The second installment of The Goblin Gate features Jeriah, the brother of Tobin, more than Makenna and Tobin in the Other World. It is understandable and I enjoyed the novel thoroughly. There is a bit of slow down in pace. This seems to happen a lot with second installments.However, this is still a solid read which I heavily recommend. It delves more into the politics of the world and there are schemes abound!

    18. I didn't know if I'd like this second book as well, since the main character changed to Tobin's younger brother, Jeriah. But I may have even liked it better! There is a lot of court intrigue and political manuevering in the book, and Jeriah must survive long enough to figure out what is really going on and how to save his brother. Hilari Bell is very good at character development and she weaves a compelling story. And I must say, the goblins are delightful.

    19. It was okay. I really like her ideas. It's amazing that she's tackling such a large problem with the series, but she's only taking it step by step, book by book. She has really great surprise endings, too. I want to see where she takes it in the next book, but I still think she uses too many exclamation points!

    20. The first in the series is so great I wasn't terribly surprised when this wasn't as good. However, it was still a very entertaining read and I'm excited for the conclusion. I was so glad Cogswhallop was in this book as well, my favorite character. I didn't like Jeriah as much as I did Makenna as a storyteller, but don't let it keep you from reading the whole series.

    21. Reads more like a second part in a three part book. Lovely read to pass the time, entertaining, mostly well crafted; a suitable coming of age story seeded with goblins, magic, daring heroes, practical heroines and brothers, politics, and danger. It didn't leave me perched on the edge of my seat or pledging undying love for the characters or author, but it made me happy anyway.

    22. Though it's Tobin's little brother narrating this one, not Tobin, I surprisingly didn't mind (and may like Jeriah more than Tobin, just cuz he's a little less stick-up-his). I loved seeing characters from book one in a different light, and one new character that stood out amazingly (Koryn, I think, is how she spelled it).**The Goblin Gate, rated 12+, rated 4.3/5 stars.

    23. 3.5 stars, marked down mostly because I still think the first book should have stood alone. That said, the characters and plots were quite nice and I love that the story came to its own satisfying end- no cliff hanger for the third book. And if she's done so well with this one, I'm just as inclined to believe the same of the third.

    24. I think the book was really good. The story and the description of the characters, make the book so good! I would recommend this book to anyone who likes books with supernatural creatures. The way the author is speaking in the story lets you know how everyone feels in this story. Which makes the outcome way better.

    25. In this sequel, Bell takes even longer to get to the main conflict than in her first book. She adds so many unnecessary details to set up the story that make the first half drags. Again, she has interesting characters and the final reveal is enough of a game changer that I wanted to read the last book to see how it all ended. If you read it, I suggest you strap in for a long ride.

    26. Quite pleased with the sequel. It did drag on kind of but it had an nice ending. I look forward to reading the third, and last, book. Goes to show that the price doesn't make the book. It can be $100 and be horrible or (like mine) be $1 and really good.6/10 would recommend.

    27. I think I would have liked this a lot more had I read the first book. Didn't realize it was a sequel when I got it. I just couldn't relate to the characters enough. Of course that being said, I rather want to find out what happens in the next book!

    28. This a very good sequel to the former book, The Goblin Wood. I got that book from a friend, and read it out of curiosity. It turned out amazing, so I had high expectations for this book. It wasn't as amazing and fast paced as the first book, but it was still quite good.

    29. Eh. It was, as Zack would say, a book two. Longer than it needed to be, plot-light way of connecting the first and third books. Most of my favorite characters had very small roles.Third book (which I'm already 100 pages into) is much better so far.
