I’ve never really understood all of the vampire / goblin craze but try arguing that with my wife; she loves those kinds of books. The differences between women and men; go figure. So, if you like that kind of thing, here’s another one that is listed for free called The Demon Awakens by R.A. Salvatore. It has received 119 reviews with an average 4-star ranking. It’s currently listed as #38 on the Amazon bestseller list.

Here’s a summary of the novel from the Amazon site:
Salvatore’s new saga opens in a volcano, with a "demon dactyl" awaking and sending out goblins to ravage the peaceful land of Corona. The scourge orphans young Elbryan Wyndon and the maiden Pony, and the two have to flee for their lives. Meanwhile, on a beach far, far away, multicolored gemstones rain down and prove to have enormous potential for both good and evil magic, depending on whose hands they fall into. After many peregrinations, Elbryan and Pony end up guardians of the gemstones, but that is only their first victory. Salvatore lacks the command of language and the humor of some other exploiters of the classic elements of fantasy, yet he lacks nothing in pacing and well-handled battle scenes. Morever, the extra elbow room he gives himself in this stout volume (and its probable successors) allows him to improve his characterization and world building. This is his most ambitious book to date; if it is not superlatively original, it is certainly very readable.
