Book Review: William Bradshaw, King of the Goblins (by Arthur Daigle)

Just a quick review today of William Bradshaw, King of the Goblins by Arthur Daigle. If you need a laugh, try this series. It’s a hoot and a half. XD

This review is for book one, and I’m currently reading the second book and highly entertained!

The author also wrote the Dana Illwind books (or, as I call them, the Jayden and Dana books) which are top favorites of mine! (Book 1 review.) (Book 2 review.)

Title: William Bradshaw, King of the Goblins

Author: Arthur Daigle

Series: William Bradshaw, #1

Goodreads • Amazon

This book is utterly hilarious. Entirely delightful. Deliciously entertaining. A blast. Sheer fun. However you say it, it’s a great book if you need a laugh or twenty. I loved it so much!

William Bradshaw, who’s from our world, gets tricked into becoming the king of the goblins in a fantasy world. The goblins are hilarious, chaotic, destructive (but in a funny, mostly-harmless way), can warp space with their craziness, and are a blast to read.

Will is not a fan of being king of a run-down kingdom but his contract is pretty inescapable. Doesn’t mean he’s not going to try…

Throw in some twists on fantasy tropes, an amusing writing style that had me in stitches at nearly every sentence, and an unexpected war from another king who manages to be as incompetent as the goblins, and you have a tale of hilarious shenanigans sure to brighten anyone’s day!

Except Will’s. His day is by no means brightened. XD

I can’t wait to read the rest of the books!

Leave a comment and make my day! I love chatting books with y’all!

    • Yes! They’re in the same world, just in different parts of it. I read the Jayden and Dana books first and they definitely have mention of this king of the goblins, and the goblins who hang out in the Jayden books are definitely the same type. When I read this one, it had more of a portal-fantasy feel (just because Will is from our world), and it takes place just in the goblin kingdom, which Dana and Jayden don’t seem to have gone near (at least so far). From something in book two of Dana’s books, I’m thinking the two series will connect a bit more eventually but so far they’ve seemed pretty separate, just same world. (But there’s a few more Will Bradshaw books for me to get to first before I can be an expert. XD) If that answers your question. 🙂
