Then suddenly Billy, Lexi, and Kurt are mysteriously transported to an underworld teeming with goblins, strange animal hybrids, and powerful magic the fact that they re stuck there is probably Billy s fault, too. With help from an unlikely goblin leader named Hop, the teens soon discover that goblins can be both fierce and friendly, with their own rich language, culture, and history a history that foretells of a human arriving to claim the Goblin Crown and lead them to victory against the deadly, invading Hanorians.

It was an enjoyable quick read. I liked most of the main characters (Kurt I was iffy about). And I could totally relate to Billy with all his awkwardness and clumsiness. Anyone who likes adventure without a whole lot of plot would like this book.
