Tyger Tyger (The Goblin Wars Series #1)

Tyger Tyger - Kersten Hamilton This turned out to be better than I thought.Don't judge a book by its cover Yeah yeah I know. The cover was just so severely creepy. It was actually the synopsis that got me interested in the first place.The book was actually really thin. So I expected a simple and short story. But instead, Kersten Hamilton created a story that was enjoyable and long-lasting. Somehow. LOL.Teagan is the main character. She seems brave enough but then I don't know what she would do without Finn.Finn is her cousin. They're not blood related though, which makes everything not-gross. Finn seems like the guy that came from the military or something. He reminds me a lot of John from Nicholas Sparks's DEAR JOHN. He's way too tough for a kid that escaped a foster home and tried to live on his own for 5 years. He's really tough, oh yeah.Aiden is Teagan's little brother. Oh my goodness, was I that annoying when I was in 1st grade? Well. This little kid is one of a kind, actually. He's pretty awesome and his skill is pretty cool as well.Abby is Teagan's best friend. She seems like the girl that would always be there to give comfort or something. She would always cheer someone up when they're down. (Unless she doesn't like that person. LOLOL)Lennie. Honestly I wouldn't care less if he wasn't in the story or not because he's not such a huge character. But I just wanted to talk about him because he reminds me a lot of Lennie Small from Of Mice and Men because Lennie is autistic. Sort of makes me think the name was borrowed.Ida. She's Finn's grandma, (I think. omg) and she's such a fabulous old lady. And no, I am not using the word fabulous loosely. Because she is fabulous. FABULOUS. So the cat goblins. Ok. This series features goblins a lot and there are cat goblins. CAT GOBLINS. OUT OF ALL THE ANIMALS UGH. I never liked cats in my life. Ever ever ever. And I think this book increased my fear of cats instead of my hate for cats. ohmy. If you're scared of cats do not read this at night. LOL RIDICULOUSThis was based on Irish mythology and I found it really interesting. Even if it was sort of creepy at times. The plot was unpredictable at times. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the rest of the series.
