The Goblin Market, by Jennifer Hudock
I have just finished reading The Goblin Market, by Jennifer Hudock. It has all the things I most enjoy in a book -- a quest/journey, characters who are well drawn, believable, and easy to tell apart, lots of tension and surprises, non-human characters, and the bonus of a female protagonist. Meredith has a very compelling reason to see her quest through to its end, and her experiences along the way are believable and well written. Ms. Hudock did an excellent job of creating the Underworld and its inhabitants. This is the sort of book that sticks with you after you've finished it.
