Jig the goblin was the runtiest member of an admittedly puny race. Jig was scrawny, so nearsighted as to be almost blind, and had such a poor self-image that when he chose a god to worship it was one of the forgotten ones - after all, what other sort of god would have him as worshiper? He also had a cowardly fire-spider for a pet, a creature that was likely to set your hair on fire if it got into a panic. Made to stand tunnel watch by the goblin bullies who'd been assigned the job, it was just Jig's luck to be taken captive by a group of adventurers - with the usual complement of a dwarf warrior, a prince out to prove himself, his mad wizard brother, and an elfin thief. Forced to guide this ill-fated party on their search for the Rod of Creation - though Jig had no more idea how to find it than they did - he soon had them stumbling into every peril anyone had ever faced in the fantasy realms. And they hadn't even found the Necromancer or the Dragon yet!

Halariously funny! by Jason (Posted on 4/30/2014)
As usual Graphic Audio has delivered a fun and engaging listening experience. The acting was great and the music as awsome as ever. This story is a fun satire on the fantasy genre that puts an intresting twist on the roll of hero and vilin. And Smudg the fire spider is in my opinion the funniest character in the book. I highly recomend it.

Very funny good read
Funny like Red Dwarf or Hitchickers Guide by Scott (Posted on 12/3/2013)
OR like Blue Moon by Simon Green. This book may not be epic like other fantasy novels, but if you in the mood for comedy this is definitely a good fit. The main character is smart, stupid, greedy and surprisingly selfless. The goblin gets captured by a typical group of adventures from any RPG Dungeons and Dragons style game. Except with all the flaws those characters would have and those flaws are half the fun. They forced him to find a treasure while making him question who the real evil race is , goblins or the so called "heroes". In the end, despite the comic story there are moments of real dangers and emotion and at the end our goblin hero has grown and improved. If you want to laugh then get this book.

I have finished the first book in this series. Jig is the type of character you grow attached to. It is fun to watch him grow as a character, as he meets one trial after another. The acting, the music and the sound effects are top notch! I am looking forward to listening to book 2.
Review by Brandon Neff (Posted on 8/19/2013)
Tough to rate this one. It wasn't great, as it was a little silly, but then again it is SUPPOSED to be a little silly. I let the kids listen to it, wincing every time the characters said "piss". The kids still talk about Jig, though, so it certainly resonated with them. The story was a little hard to follow at times, particularly near the end.

I loved this story. The plot is not complex at all, but the characterization is very specific. GA did a wonderful production job.
Review by Eric Butler (Posted on 7/12/2013)
Definitely another good series. It's not quite up to the same writing pizazz as the Nuclear Bombshell series. But, GA does a spectacular production that makes up for the slightly dull plot. The actors do an exceptional job of donning accents and filling out the characters they portray. I particularly liked the character of Jig. Looking forward to seeing how the series fleshes out. If you're into Dungeons and Dragons, you'll recognize this as based on that sort of dungeon crawl. I'd almost bet that the author was rolling the dice while writing. ;)
Review by Barney McCasland (Posted on 5/23/2013)
Goblin Quest is another great GA production, and I'm anxious for the second book in the trilogy to find out what will happen to Jig next. Not that the story leaves anything hanging, only foreshadowing a little(?) future events, but Jig's character development was very interesting to me, and I'm wondering just how much he'll have changed by the end. It was also interesting to hear how GA portrayed everything in the book, from the sound effects to the accents. I want to point out one omission in the casting credits, however: they didn't say who played Smudge, and I'm really wondering if in the book Smudge was described as making those kinds of sounds, or if that was an added touch by GA... If you like "rpg fantasy" or Simon R. Green's Forest Kingdom Saga (also available from Graphic Audio), then you'll probably like the Goblin Trilogy. Like Forest Kingdom, it's light and humorous, but there are serious themes... Now, onto Nuclear Bombshell 6: The Flaxen Femme Fatale, another of GA's outstanding series. Actually, that brings to mind one more point I'd like to make: even though GA got it's start in the action/adventure genre...it also does humor really well!
