Jig the Goblin
2 : Goblin Hero

by Jim C. Hines
May 1, 2013
6 Hours
All Ages
They call him Jig Dragonslayer - and who is he to deny a legend. After all, common sense - something in very short supply among goblins - has a lot to do with Jig's continued existence. Though he's been captured by adventures and dragged unwillingly along on their foolish quest, he's survived both the Necromancer and the Dragon. If people want to insist he's a hero, he isn't going to fight about it. But the trouble with being labeled a hero is that everyone expects you to keep doing heroic things. And all Jig wants to do is worship his forgotten god, hang out with his pet fire-spider, and heal humiliating goblin injuries. But to Kralk, the current head goblin, Jig is a threat to her power. So when an ogre comes to seek Jig Dragonslayer's help against an unnamed enemy that's destroying or enslaving all of ogre kind, Kralk insists he accept the challenge. With a large, exceptionally dumb goblin and an ancient, crotchety goblin who can barely walk as his unwanted sidekicks - and pursued by a goblin who's certain that she's meant to be the true goblin hero - Jig sets out for ogre territory. After all, being killed by a magical enemy that can terrify an ogre is probably no worse than being killed by your 'friends'...

Great by corey (Posted on 10/21/2018)
Another great episode of the series. As a truck driver and former DnD player I loved it!!!!
Good sequel, new adventrues by Scott (Posted on 9/1/2018)
Well I thought the first book was self contained, but here Jig's new god has helped Jig change and pushes him to go on a new adventure to save his people again, this time from pixies. We also get introduced to a few new characters that enlarge the rather childish and savage goblin cast of characters. Worth a few chuckles.
GOBLIN HERO by Theresa (Posted on 2/3/2018)
Captured me from the beginning, love that his pet and best friend is a spider that is very unusually. How does he do it keeps living and keeps going on and conquering everyone and everything, loved all the twists and turns in the story.
Another Success by Jim C. Hines by Christopher (Posted on 3/24/2017)
Wining the day seemed good, but now he has to deal with "success". All he wanted was to be left to his own devices, but any challenge to the status quo gets lethal when Goblins, and worse, are involved.
Goblin Hero by Bos (Posted on 11/27/2016)
This story was not as interesting as the first but still worth it.
Goblin Hero by Charles (Posted on 8/7/2016)
Goblin Quest is another great GA production,I loved this story.
Another well done production... by Alan (Posted on 8/7/2016)
But, I had a hard time sticking to the story. Some of the characters were kind of annoying and it would have been more fun if they were killed off in horrible ways. It will definitely make your drive go faster.
great by Lionel (Posted on 3/18/2016)
Jig and Smudge are at it again. I found this funnier than the first one, and has a bit more substance to it. Great book!
Thumbs up by Victor (Posted on 7/30/2015)
Good story in part one upgrades to great story here!
Great Follow up! by Brittany (Posted on 5/4/2015)
Loved the first book but this one was just as good. Thrilling!
Fun continues by Mary Jo (Posted on 11/1/2014)
This one starts out a little slow. Goblin Hero seems like he is going to become boring with boring supporting characters. Then it picks up. There is good character growth with some twists and turns along the way. I found it interesting that characteristics literature has given to goblins; eats anything, not to bright, treacherous, disgusting habits and the like are still present. But they contribute to and enhance the story instead of detract from it. I really enjoy the conversations between our hero Jig and his god Shadowstar. The voices fit the characters perfectly. I am glad I discovered this series.
This is a series for fans of humor by wolfe (Posted on 10/28/2014)
One of the funnier books I have ever read or heard. A must for fantasy and funny.
goblin quest trilgey by daryl (Posted on 6/16/2014)

The laughter continues! by Jason (Posted on 5/11/2014)
The laughter continues on in this second installment of Graphic Audio's rendition of Jim C. Hines the goblin trilogy. I never thought I'd say this, but I was rooting for the goblins Especially Jig the entire time. As anyone who has read Tolkine's the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings knows, goblins are usually portrayed as the go to badguys in the fantasy genre. And so they are. While fairies on the other hand are almost always seen as the angelic goodguys. Well after giving this GA Production a listen, you'll soon realize that fairies really aren't as kind and gentel as the stories you may have heard as a youngster have lead you to believe. Fairies are evil plain and simple! Its true that goblins have more than their fair share of moral flaws, but at least their honest about it. As usual GA has done a fantastic job at bringing this story to life. Dilin Linch was the perfect choice for the voice of Jig. and Ric Rowen does a great job at playing a god. Great music grand narration and sound effects really help in bringing this story to the silver screen in your head. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
Goblin Hero by Natalie (Posted on 9/24/2013)
I can't help but love the character Jigs! Looking forward to the 3rd book!!
3rd of 3 by Chad (Posted on 9/20/2013)
awesome as it was this one would be my third favorite out of the 3 and I have to add Dylan Lynch was the perfect voice for Jig. The interactions between Jig and Tymalous Shadowstar kept me rolling with laughter.
Review by Demario Griffin (Posted on 8/8/2013)
Though it starts a bit slower that the first; the payoff of Book 2 is much stronger than Book 1. Jig’s character growth is amazing and though he’s a goblin his mental tug between doing what’s needed for all and doing what’s best for him is very realistic. This is another awesome production by the folks at GA.
Review by Barney McCasland (Posted on 5/23/2013)
Goblin Hero builds nicely on Goblin Quest and increases anticipation for Goblin War. As one of GA's best fantasy/humor series to date, and one of their best series in general, I'll be sad when it's over. However, I found that there's also a collection of short stories called Goblin Tales, and hopefully GA will be following up with it.
