Goblin War, by Jim C. Hines, is the third novel in his Goblin trilogy.
I’m used to giving my opinion on things, but here’s a question I’m putting out there:
Why are so many Urban Fantasy novels written in first person?
Do they tend to sell more?
Do readers connect better with the character?
Feel free to post your opinions…

SciFiChick: In your own words, can you tell us what Goblin War is about?
Jim Hines: Goblin War was an interesting book to write. I knew I needed to bring the trilogy to a close, so I went back to the beginning, looking at some of the struggles and issues Jig has faced since the first book. A lot of Jig’s actions and choices from Goblin Quest come back to haunt him this time.
I also wanted to get the goblins out of their caves and into the larger world. As you might have guessed from the title, there’s a war going on out there between humans and monsters. Jig being who he is, he eventually ends up with both sides against him. It’s rough being Jig Dragonslayer. Fortunately, he’s a clever little goblin, and he has a few friends to help him out. In the end, I had to find a way for Jig to face off against two armies, while also staying true to his goblin nature.
