Summary of The Hob's Bargain Summary of The Hob's Bargain Reviews for The Hob's Bargain An Excerpt from The Hob's Bargain
Her gift of sight has shown her visions of mayhem and murder. So, to save her village from ruthless raiders, Aren of Fallbrook strikes a bargain with the magical Hob, who will exact a heavy price to defend the village—a price Aren herself must pay.

“[A] fun fantasy romance…There’s plenty of action, with battles against raiders and magical creatures, a bard who isn’t what he appears, and an evil mage—but there’s also plenty of humor, and some sweet moments of mischief and romance.”—Locus


“I ran across Patricia Briggs—literally—at our local book store, while sorting through the shelves looking for another book. The cover art intrigued me, then I read the first page and went straight to the counter. This is a “Beauty and the Beast” story but unlike any I’ve ever read. Ms. Briggs blends adventure, romance, and innovative fantasy with a deft hand. Highly recommend this one to all my readers.”—S. L. Viehl, author of the Stardoc series


“It is easy to like Patricia Briggs’s novels. Her books are perfect for a Friday evening or a late Sunday afternoon when you don’t want to have to work to enjoy your reading. Her books are clever, engaging, fast-moving and with plots that manage to be thought-provoking without being heavy-handed. A warning, however—make sure you don’t start the dinner cooking or the lawn watering before you curl up with one of her books, because you’ll end up with a burnt dinner and a soggy lawn and an enjoyable few hours lost in another world.”—Romantic SF & Fantasy
