Welcome to the magical land of Snowybrook Vale! While you're here, enjoy the good company, fine drink and elegant lodging to be had at the Vale's premier vacation spot, Snowybrook Inn. But if you venture into the countryside, watch the shadows! Because Goblins lurk behind every rock, and Imperial soldiers are always around, looking to teach an unruly frontiersman a lesson.
Snowybrook Inn is an ongoing whimsical fantasy series in episodic format. Each book consists of four to five stand-alone short stories.
In this first book, Snowybrook Inn receives a visit from a time traveler. Goblins trash the inn. Dragons make life hard for everyone. Mikel Fairdawn is cursed by a witch, and lastly, he searches for a piece of the moon to prove his love to a fairy.

Fragmented story. Characters are weaved together but the tales have no purpose. This seems to be a collection of stories loosely surrounding the main character who runs the town inn and the townspeople who frequent its bar. The general idea of was a good one but the author does not seem to be able to get it off the ground. I understand that there is a sequel to this book but this one doesn't entice enough to continue. The group of stories should not have been broken up between multiple books. It seems like a single story was broken up part way through and converted to a "part two"; much the way Hollywood seems to be doing with its movies lately. Sadly, it doesn't work for this book. Too many of the stories are left without conclusion. This was quite a frustrating listen.
Yes I might.
There is a 2.nd book
If you like dragons, goblins and want an easy, cosy listen - this could be it
Not including the sphincter clasps. Also, the story seemed rushed. It seems like something that could have been made into a longer novel and been great, but instead is so short it isn't even good IMO.
The reader was nice, his voice was pleasant and suited the characters. The author did a good job of invoking imagery. There were some very charming parts to the story, it wasn't all bad.
The narrator was my favourite. Aside that, the tavern owner who was the protagonist.
The scene with the goblin king. A different object could have been used to implicate the goblin hoard. The author does such a good job of conjuring up imagery that I was very put off and almost didn't finish listening to the book.
