Summary

Xandra Varden is the newly crowned Goblin Queen of England. But her complicated life is by no means over. There are the political factions vying for her favour, and the all-too-close scrutiny of Queen Victoria, who for some reason wants her head. Not to mention her werewolf boyfriend with demands of his own, and a mother hell-bent on destroying the monarchy. Now she's the suspect in a murder investigation - and Xandra barely knows which way is up. What she does know is that nothing lasts forever - and immortality isn't all it's cracked up to be.

a great sequel

I loved this as much as the first. Changing the narrator was a little confusing at first but I preferred Moira Quirk's style.

Go read book 1 first, it'll make more sense when read in order

Goblins Rule...

Okay I have to be honest I did not enjoy it as much as the first one, I felt there was a lot of repetition of various scenarios and problems regarding the humans reactions to the supernatural,and the missing brother. But saying that the actual characters and storyline kept me going even though it was stretched thin at times. What I do like and looking forward to seeing developed is the up and coming chaos that could break out and how it is going to pan out in the next book. Will definitely be reading the next in the series.. good to see Goblins in the front seat..
