    I was pleasantly surprised by this book, and I think many other readers out there will be as well I absolutely loved it from start to finish it was a joy to step into Ivy s head Ivy Slaughter is a half human half goblin, and therefore has always been treated as less than by her fellow goblins, including her own mother Although she has many goblin like features, she has an equal amount of human features, too, like the ability to have real feelings and emotions and the ability to just real I was pleasantly surprised by this book, and I think many other readers out there will be as well I absolutely loved it from start to finish it was a joy to step into Ivy s head Ivy Slaughter is a half human half goblin, and therefore has always been treated as less than by her fellow goblins, including her own mother Although she has many goblin like features, she has an equal amount of human features, too, like the ability to have real feelings and emotions and the ability to just really not like eating rotting meat like the rest of her family It doesn t seem like anything is going to change until her grandmother, one of the elder goblins, offers her an opportunity to go on a quest and help each of the people that hold the seven stems of the Spider Mushroom the eighth still being in the ground If she completes the quest and drinks the juices from the eight stems together, she will be granted the ability to transform into anything she wants, AKA full blooded goblin But, is that really what she wants Along the way, she meets Robin, who is constantly trespassing on Trapper land in order to complete his father s map They decide to team up to complete Ivy s mission This book was, obviously, a little dark in places, but not in a bad way I thoroughly enjoyed it and found myself wantingonce I turned that last page I can t wait for book two Dawn Marshallsay has certainly got herself an amazing start to a series here, I ve never read anything else like it If you find yourself tired of the same old stories and plot lines, or just want to try something a little different, I highly recommend you check out Gluttony, as it s a choice I don t see anyone regretting I received this book for review from the author, but this in no way affected my opinion or this review

    This book is much better than I thought This is a little different than what I usually read but I always like reading new books and genre so I decided to give it a try I was pleasantly surprised that I actually enjoyed this book, It is dark and it kept me reading until the very end This young adult dark fantasy book is very well written.I can t wait to get my hands on book number two in this series.I give this 4 out of 5

    Ivy, is the first character to be brought in, and an interesting one at that Half goblin, she has unique abilities, but not been full goblin means she suffersthan what some may think.The story had me captivated from the start The creativity of this world and the characters within it clearly depict what it would be like The author creating a relatable character.The trappers described as humans, live separately from the goblins No one can trespass Anyone that dare will regret it.Except Ivy, is the first character to be brought in, and an interesting one at that Half goblin, she has unique abilities, but not been full goblin means she suffersthan what some may think.The story had me captivated from the start The creativity of this world and the characters within it clearly depict what it would be like The author creating a relatable character.The trappers described as humans, live separately from the goblins No one can trespass Anyone that dare will regret it.Except Robin, a notorious goblin constantly trespassing, yet slipping out of the humans grasp.As I got to know this character, it is quickly revealed that he is not the bad one in all if this, just misunderstood But constantly in danger because of the reputation he has built.The way the author describes the characters, it is very easy to connect to them, their struggles and what they are surrounded by.Ivy is then forced by her grandmother to undertake a quest to fully morph into a goblin, or be stuck between both worlds forever.Ascharacters emerge into the plot,events unfold, the complexities growing.Ivy travels with Robin as her guide But he has his own demons.Ivy doesn t know who to trust, compelled to keep going, but feeling her strength waning, and not knowing exactly who wants to stop her from reaching her quest.It is somewhat of an unusual book The creativity and the originality is impressive However, it slows down, and coming to the end of the book, I felt it could have finished sooner The book has a sweet ending, with the temptation ofto come.3 5 stars
