Taming the Goblin is the second book in The McGunnegal Chronicles series, continuing where Into a Strange Land left off.
The strangeness of the McGunnegals continues to unfold as Colleen begins to glimpse the latent power of the ancient bloodline that runs true in her veins.
Frederick also has something within him - the poison of the Goblin Phage that threatens to transform him into one of the hideous creatures of the night. He must leave Colleen in this strange land in order to save himself, and to seek the help of a long-dead king back in the world of Men.
Colleen goes on without him, but has again encountered the goblin, Nous, whose life she once saved. She must convince her companions that he is worth befriending. She must trust him to lead them to the Witch's dungeons, and there help her to free its captives, and hope that he does not betray them all.
High adventure, storms and monsters at sea, creatures of legend and myth, captures and escapes, magic and invention, terrible loss, fool-hearty daring, and a journey toward finding one's true self all come together in these epic tales.
What did you love best about Taming the Goblin?
I enjoyed the book the nice to have a fantasy book ever so often. Pulls you right in to being in the story
Have you listened to any of Jannie Meisberger’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
This is the first book I have ever listened to with Jannie Meisberger as the narrator. She has such a unique voice and I was amazed on how she pronounced everything so perfect. Very clear. She is one of the best I have heard.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
kept my attention and smiled quite a few times.
Any additional comments?
I would definitely listen to more books narrated by Jannie Meisberger
