About this ebook

Most people have no idea goblins live in the woods around the small town of Bellwater, Washington. But some are about to find out.

Skye, a young barista and artist, falls victim to a goblin curse in the forest one winter night, rendering her depressed and silenced, unable to speak of what happened. Her older sister, Livy, is at wit's end trying to understand what's wrong with her. Local mechanic Kit would know, but he doesn't talk of such things: he's the human liaison for the goblin tribe, a job he keeps secret and never wanted, thrust on him by an ancient family contract.

Unaware of what's happened to Skye, Kit starts dating Livy, trying to keep it casual to protect her from the attention of the goblins. Meanwhile, unbeknownst to Kit, Skye draws his cousin Grady into the spell through an enchanted kiss in the woods, dooming Grady and Skye both to become goblins and disappear from humankind forever.

It's a midwinter night's enchantment as Livy, the only one untainted by a spell, sets out to save them on a dangerous magical path of her own.

Third-party review
The first half of the book moved very slowly; several times I caught myself skimming a paragraph or two at a time to just move forward. Then just after the 50% mark it felt like it really picked up, then it was super rushed! The story in general was interesting and often believable.

About the author

Molly Ringle was one of the quiet, weird kids in school, and is now one of the quiet, weird writers of the world. She likes thinking up innovative romantic obstacles and mixing them with topics like Greek mythology, ghost stories, fairy tales, or regular-world scandalous gossip. She's into mild rainy climates, gardens, '80s new wave music, chocolate, tea, and perfume (or really anything that smells good). She has lived in the Pacific Northwest most of her life, aside from grad school in California and one work-abroad season in Edinburgh in the 1990s. Many of her previous novels have involved urban fantasy, paranormal romance, or fictional countries, but Sage and King is her first proper high fantasy. Molly currently lives in Seattle with her husband, kids, guinea pigs, corgi, and a lot of moss. Her growing list of successful titles include:

2. Underworld's Daughter
3. Immortal's Spring
