"Power lines, my travlin' partner on this ride. Dripping, pulling - up and down, in this sing song, their lullaby blends with the swaying train. I curl myself into this journey; folding myself up into this pocket of time. Old familiars greet me - that swing set in the back yard, the ruins of an old church covered in new birth and old - mixed with unremembered newness."

Goblin Quest by Jim C. Hines

Jim C. Hines is a friend of mine and author. The book below is a must read for the fantasy reader out there. I didn't want to just post a plug for a friend, but one hell of a writer too!
He doesn't know I am doing this, I wanted to surprise him. So buy the book and read it!

In the history of grand adventures, heroic quests, and noble battles, goblinkind has never been more than a footnote.
All that is about to change....
When Jig's patrol is ambushed by a group of adventurers, he does what goblins do best: throws down his weapon and surrenders. Thus begins Jig's quest, as the adventurers force him to serve as their guide through the labyrinth of tunnels beneath the mountain. Led by Prince Barius Wendelson, their goal is an ancient magical artifact, hidden here ages past.
As the group moves deeper into the tunnels, Jig finds himself face to face with creatures of goblin legend: ogres, trolls, not to mention the long-dead servants of the dreaded Necromancer, all leading to one final, deadly battle.
To survive, Jig will have to find a way to combine heroism with his own goblin ideals. The result is an unpredictable adventure that will leave readers cheering this unlikeliest of heroes and questioning the most basic traditions of fantasy quests.
