Synopsis: In ancient times, magical creatures inhabited the Earth. They lived on mountaintops, in the branches of trees, at the bottom of lakes and rivers.
That was long ago, before the human race declared war on the creatures they feared and hated. Now, the enchanted peoples are all but gone. Those few who remain fear being stretched out on an examination table in some secret, governmental facility. The only place they can hide from the ever increasing number of satellites and smart phones is in the World Below.
Chronicles of the Goblin King: The World Below (1)
Review: ‘The World Below’ is a stunning urban fantasy novel with quirky and lovable characters. Mitch is a former foundry worker who was injured and disfigured during a strike. When the money runs out he moves away and starts anew. Mitch found new friends who didn’t pity him or run away in fear and he even met a beautiful girl, Elizabeth. Mitch starts learning about the World Below, because he can ‘see’ more than the average human, and he ends up fulfilling his role as hero quite admirably. I loved the fantasy, the creatures, the characters, and oddly even the nasty Baron Finkbeiner. ‘The World Below’ is wonderfully gritty and brings realism to fantasy at a steady pace which leads to a raucous conclusion.
