Review: Goblins by David Bernstein

Goblins - David Bernstein

I received a free copy of Goblins from the publisher in return for an honest review.


I couldn't get into this to start with, the whole baseball thing was off putting. I get that it was there to introduce the first character but it really didn't need all the detail. It felt very YA/coming-of-age rather than setting the scene for a good horror. Once I got past that part though I was really drawn into the story.


Goblins is full of monsters, violence, blood and gore. There was many a scene that had me flinching, the description of sounds at times turning my blood cold like nails on a blackboard would. The author pulls on your heart strings as well as playing on your fears and it creates a mix of emotions that has you on the edge of your seat, both wanting to turn the page but also apprehensive of what will happen next.


Goblins is the stuff of nightmares and is an easy and fast read for horror fans. There's no having to read between the lines, everything is there in great gory detail, it grabs you and takes you along for the ride.
