Sophie and the Shadow Woods, The Goblin King by Linda Chapman and Lee Weatherley

Exciting new 6 book character-led series for 7+ girls who love adventure! Very few people ever enter the Shadow Woods, for these woods are like no others. Hidden deep within them is the Gateway to the Shadow Realm -- a dark and chaotic world where all kinds of gruesome creatures live! On her tenth birthday, tomboy Sophie learns she is the Guardian of the magical gateway, and that her destiny is to protect the human world from the goblins, trolls and evil sprites that inhabit the Shadow Woods. Each book sees Sophie having to outwit weird and terrifying creatures from the Shadow Woods, starting with the gruesome Goblins.

I really enjoyed this book. It is filling a gap in the market, a series for girls who like Goblins and Trolls!
This is the first book in a new series which is being released at the end of April 2011.

The book tells the story of Sophie, who on her 10th birthday takes over as the Guardian from her Grandad. She has a twin brother who knows nothing of her role and is suspicious of her secrecy with her Grandad. Sophie is unsure of the new role and is concerned, however when she accidentally lets the Goblins have the key she has to protect the gems from finding their way into Goblin hands.

I would recommend this to girls who want something different to the many fairy and princess books on the market at this present time.

Thank you to Harper Collins for sending me the book to review.
