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.


Tyger Tyger is the first book of the Goblin Wars Trilogy by Kersten Hamilton and for the first installment in a trilogy, Tyger Tyger is amazing! I super enjoy reading the book as it contains a lot of aspect that I like a book.

Tyger Tyger is based from Celtic folklore or mythology that is about Teagan and Finn and their battle against their enemies in the goblin world. The characters were so easy to love. With the oh so handsome young heroine Finn who tries to fight off the goblins from his family, Teagan who is a nerdy yet beautiful teenage girl that discovers her life is full of facts that she only hears for the first time, and Aidan who is a cute little boy that seems powerful with his never ending selection of music. Reading the book, you just can't get enough of each character.

The story is also amazing. Since it is based on folklore, readers may relate to some of the details while reading it. Making it easier to follow and remember. Tyger Tyger was action packed, informative as an introduction to the trilogy so when you read the second book you won't be left out. The confrontation was just right to keep me intrigued as to what will happen with the three characters and the others.

Would I recommend Tyger Tyger? Absolutely. Tyger Tyger has been a delight to read and if Hamilton will continue with this line of story telling, I know the trilogy will gain a lot of fans. For a fast paced book, this is certainly worth your time and money.
