Publisher's Summary

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!

Performed by Nanette Savard, Dylan Lynch, Terence Aselford, Eric Messner, Casie Platt, Thomas Keegan, Richard Rohan, Mort Shelby, Kimberly Gilbert, Danny Gavigan, Michael Glenn, Tim Getman.

Fun, but not amazing

If you're looking for a light hearted adventure comedy, you'll probably enjoy it. Had a few funny parts, but I wasn't blown away. The performances were pretty good though. Nothing bad to say really.

Theater of the mind

Rare to find a fantasy adventure book out of the perspective of a goblin, while being pleasantly enjoyable listen with a lot of humour.
That also doesn't depict the Goblin as a "selfish, backstabbing coward". But a rather likable sort, more so than the company around.

I also wanna praise the sound effects, voice acting and the great narration. it really did wonders in allowing you to feel like your watching a live performance, breathing life to the story.
I genuinely felt spoiled for how good quality this was.
