    From the Back Cover:
    Teagan Wylltson's best friend, Abby, dreams that horrifying creatures—goblins, shape-shifters, and beings of unearthly beauty but terrible cruelty—are hunting Teagan. Abby is always coming up with crazy stuff, though, so Teagan isn't worried. Her life isn't in danger. In fact, it's perfect. She's on track for a college scholarship. She has a great job. She's focused on school, work, and her future. No boys, no heartaches, no problems.

    Until Finn Mac Cumhaill arrives. Finn's a bit on the unearthly beautiful side himself. He has a killer accent and a knee-weakening smile. And either he's crazy or he's been haunting Abby's dreams, because he's talking about goblins, too . . . and about being The Mac Cumhaill, born to fight all goblin-kind. Finn knows a thing or two about fighting. Which is a very good thing, because this time, Abby's right. The goblins are coming.

    My Thoughts:
    Read this book!

    I don't usually chase down e-books for review but I have been really eager to get my hands on Tyger Tyger. For you see, Tyger Tyger has something I can get really excited about—goblins!

    Tyger Tyger is a refreshing and unique addition to the current selection of Young Adult supernatural fiction. In their budding yet cautious romance, Finn is protective of Teagan but without being overbearing or controlling. Teagan is a well fleshed out leading female character who is both smart and caring. The loving family dynamic is so very welcome. The relationship between Teagan, her younger brother Aiden, and their parents is one that is sweet and supportive.

    The very best thing about Tyger Tyger is the goblins. Readers will be enthralled by the Celtic mythology Hamilton has used to create this rich tale. This is the kind of book I would love to see illustrated. After reading this I set to searching the internet for information on Celtic mythology and art of Fionn Mac Cumhaill, Fear Doirich, and Ginny Greenteeth. Hamilton has gotten me hooked on Celtic goblin nasties and I cannot wait for the next Goblin Wars book.

    Tyger Tyger is the perfect read for young teens or even just those of us who are young at heart. Look for it on bookshelves from November 15th!

      I so agree! I was afraid to really talk about the characters of the book because I just wanted to say too much! Glad you enjoyed it as much as I did!
