The Goblin's Crown
After being raised by her three criminal brothers, Matilda is used to stealing what she wants. However, when she picks the wrong person's pocket, she, unfortunately, wins the attentions of the goblin king, or well, prince actually. In one fell swoop, her life shifts and a thief is made a queen. The queen of a hoard of nasty, ugly, vile creatures with a taste for chaos. Surprisingly, she finds that this arrangement suits her just fine. But even the goblin queen's crown might not be enough to slate Matilda's greed as she sets her sights on overthrowing Queen Mab and becoming ruler over the entire Unseelie Court.
Knut touched his shoulder and looked at the blood on his fingers as if bleeding were a foreign concept to him. "You stabbed me." Instead of getting angry, he started to laugh, low and deep. "You truly are the perfect woman, aren't you, Matilda." He smeared the blood between his fingers, seemingly mesmerized by it. "You've been planning to rob me from the beginning, haven't you, and now you've tried to kill me. You are so conniving and vile! I positively love it! You may be human, but you're rotten to your core! You're a Goblin through and through!" He leered. "What a queen you'll make!"
Author's note: I'm shooting to update every Thursday or Friday, depending on my work schedule. Happy reading and beware of goblins.
