The Goblin Hunters (book review)
This is the sixth book in this series by Samuel Schiller. In the last book the Third Legion had beaten the Moloch priests and the First and Second Legions that had rebelled against King Osric.
The Red Goblin, Klabaga, was angry that the priests had lost, but set out to seek the help of a group of trolls from the Zarrin Tappeh to go against the humans again.
While Klabaga is raising his army, Evan follows God’s leading to go somewhere and is captured by Ahmed and sold to the enemy. Aine Ceallaigh gathers the Third Legion together to go through the mountains to gain help against the rising goblin armies. The chance of surviving the trip through the mountains is very slim, but they go anyways.
Throughout this story many lives become intertwined with each other that were previously separate. One of the main characters realizes some mistakes he has made and the horrors of the priests of Moloch. He chooses to become a believer in Iosa (Jesus) and follow the One True God.
Several characters learn to hear from the bird, Julian (the Holy Spirit) in guiding them on their journey. Klabaga can notice that Evan is in the area with the Spirit of God upon him.
This story is very graphic in its descriptions of the battles that occur between the goblins, trolls and humans. It flows back and forth from the goblins to the humans describing what each are doing. There are some parallels to some of the characters in the Bible as to what some of these characters go through on this journey and battle.
Focus on God and His power is often referred to by the characters. Hearing and obeying God is highest priority that many learn as they go along not understanding God’s leading.
Sadly, this book ends with an opening for another book and stating that it will continue in another book, which is, as of yet, to have been written. I will not reveal how the battles end. It may be good or bad. You must read the book to find that out.
I highly recommend reading this book, only after reading the previous five books in this series. It is an encouraging story to build one’s faith in God and trusting that God will make a way where there seems to be no way. It also shows that life is often a series of battles against the enemy, though most often not physical ones as found in this story, but of spiritual battles.
