REVIEW

"A brilliant, charming tale of whimsy"

The last of the Goblins!!? Say it ain't so, Miz Melanie! We don't know nuttin' about birthin' Gremlins!! You haven't destroyed the Kentucky Derby or the Highland Games....The Goblins meet the Loch Ness Monster (Toho was screaming for the rights to make a movie of this one!!). Goblins destroy the Olympics...Goblins take over the Romantic Times Convention...Goblins purchase Dorchester Publishing and makes all their writers write Goblin tales! Everyone already knows they have seized Amland (Amazon). We simply NEED more Goblins!! Melanie Jackson created one of the most original series and each book was special, bringing forth characters that were cross-fey, mixing lore and fantasy and giving readers a fresh touch of magick! So I REFUSE to accept this is the last one. I shall gnaw on your editor's ankle. Send him a basket of Goblin Fruit -- yeah, that's the ticket.

In the Saint -- no, it's not Simon Templar -- this Saint, a Death Fey, travels about our planet spreading merry ho ho, sort of a cupid ala Saint Nic, bringing romance and love, thus dispelling evil. The Goblins down in Goblinville ain't happy, no siree...so they poison him. But you cannot kill a Death Fey, so one day he vanished and even Rudolph couldn't find him to play reindeer games. He is discovered wandering the northern tundra living with the Coca-Cola bears and with his mind a blank. The fey naturally assume this is an evil Goblin plot to take over Christmas. And lo, were they ever right!

As Kris slowly gets his wherewithal back, he is shocked to learn the Goblins have been up to their old tricks and have messed with the hohoho season (won't the retailers be soooooo mad!!). To help solve what happen and find Rudolph, Donner and Blitzen, Kris hires one Adora Navarra to put a new spin on the man in the Red Suit's PR.

Naturally, Adora has bought into the Goblin Menace's Memory Mess. She is just a wee tad resistant to writing the biography of this nutcase...hum...Kris Kringle in Armani. Soon the lass is not really caring if he thinks he is Simon Templar, Santa or Billy Jack in HoHo town as she follows him, meeting the various fey warriors that have been battling the Goblin plots, while they prepare for a major showdown.

It's an utterly brilliant, charming tale of whimsy as only Jackson can deliver. The series in order: Traveler, The Outsider, The Courier, Still Life, The Master and The Saint.

More Goblins -- PLEASE!!!!!!!!

SUMMARY

Don't try his patience!

He knows if you've been naughty. He knows if you've been nice. What The Saint (aka Kris Kringle, Santa Claus, The Green Man) doesn't know is where Adora Navarra fits into his plans to take back Christmas from the goblin hordes.
