Review of The Goblin Rebellion by Rex Jameson

Five years after the Uldram catastrophe, the elf Routan sits in a shattered home filled with the faded memories of his murdered children. King Elandril has done nothing to bring Lucifer and the demons to justice, and despite the assurances of the government, Routan remains convinced that the Elven Realm is in grave danger. Assistance comes from the creator of the Order Primal, and together, he and Routan will shake the foundations of the multiverse.

4 stars

The Goblin Rebellion is the second book in Rex Jameson's Primal Patterns series.  Taking place following the events of Lucifer's Odyssey where the realms are preparing for war.  Jehovah is preparing his invasion while Lucifer is trying to improve the lives of his people.

There was a bit of a gap between me reading the first book and this one so it took me some time to get things figured out again.  That being said after I got back into the story I enjoyed this one a bit more than the first book.  I felt that certain aspects were explained a bit better leading to a greater understanding of the universe the story takes place in.  I still enjoy the majority of the characters and their interactions.  There is a whole lot of action that takes place in this book including battles featuring giant mechanical battle suits vs the demons with their indestructible wings.

If you enjoyed Lucifer's Odyssey this book is definitely something for you to check out, and I've found out that at the end of August it will be made free for an undisclosed amount of time.  That will be a great time to discover a new series.
