From the Publisher"There truly is never a dull moment in The Goblin Corps.... I haven't enjoyed a quest fantasy this much since I read David Eddings back in middle school. Marmell has the wit and charm of Eddings's stories coupled with the grittiness of Joe Abercrombie or Sam Sykes and a narrative style that is completely his own. If you ever wished that Brandon Sanderson or David Eddings could be a tad bitter more realistic in content, or Scott Lynch and Joe Abercrombie a tad bit funnier then you will love the way that Marmell has struck a wonderful balance between the two. I haven't laughed so hard or been so into a book in many a year. Highly recommended!"

"To my relief, The Goblin Corps possesses the same elements that made [Marmell's] The Conqueror's Shadow so much fun to read…a comical David Eddings-like humor, and Joe Abercrombie's kick-ass grittiness.... The Goblin Corps embraces its dark side-and thrives because of it.... The Goblin Corps is must-read material for anyone who is a fan of Joe Abercrombie and likes seeing fantasy tropes viciously subverted. Don't let the Abercrombie comparisons fool you either. Ari has his own style which he is perfecting, and if he can continue writing books like...The Goblin Corps, then I wouldn't be surprised if exciting new fantasy authors were one day compared to Ari Marmell..."
