    Robin Goodfellow, Knight of Oberon and the most dangerous being on earth save one, sobbed like a broken child. When I first found out this installment of the Gray Court series was going to be about Robin I must say I was a bit skeptical, his character was intriguing but not necessarily sexy in the other books. But knowing and loving DMB like I do I was eager to read this one and find out how she was going to make it amazing, as I had no doubt she would, and I wasn't disappointed!

But knowing and loving DMB like I do I was eager to read this one and find out how she was going to make it amazing, as I had no doubt she would, and I wasn't disappointed! Robin Goodfellow turned out to be one of the most amazing male leads ever! Really I fell head-over-hells for him in this book. I love his sense of humour and his passion for the people he loves. I had to get over his appearance though, long red hair isn't really my thing but I'd gladly overlook it for him. Michaela is one of the most awesome heroines I've ever come across! I love her sense of humour as well and I love how real she was as a character. She totally understood when Robin wanted to protect her and while she wasn't going to be the damsel in distress, she didn't go off half cocked almost getting herself killed either. She also reminded me a lot of myself, she made quick friends with Moira (which I would love to do :P) and the others in her family. After reading about Oberon from another perspective I realise that he is a great character and I just know his book is going to be great, especially with the way this one ended. I can honestly say I'm very upset that this book is over and I would gladly dive right back into it if there was more. Dana Marie Bell has done it again, creating a fantastical story full of action, romance, hot sex and plenty of laughs! I cannot WAIT for the next one!

    Oh how I lurve Robin Goodfellow. I've been itching for his book since the beginning of the Gray Court series and The Hob did not disappoint. Micheala was a great match for him and I thoroughly enjoyed the building of their relationship and learning more about other secondary characters. I know that Oberon is up next but am not sure if that will be the final book in the series. I'm hoping not. This is a fantastically erotic fae series and I'd like more, especially if it involves more of Raven and Oh how I lurve Robin Goodfellow.

    The Hob-- book 4 in the Gray Court series. I feel like I waited a long time for this book. I do highly recommend that you take the time to read the first three books before tackling The Hob, it would be very difficult to understand what's going on otherwise.

They are a real joy to read. Robin Goodfellow is easily my favorite character out of them all. He's snarky and justifiably sure of himself. He has a great sense of humor and a lovely flair for irony. He rewards loyalty with loyalty and is merciless against his enemies. Michaela is his truebond mate, a human that has dreamed of Robin all her life. Michaela is smart and emotionally strong, and she can see the good and bad in people. Robin meets her in disguise, as Ringo, although she is concern when she finds herself attracted to both Ringo, and a man who she thinks is wearing a Robin Goodfellow costume, but that is resolved when true identities are revealed. A great deal of the story takes place at a fairy convention (for humans). The costumes they wear elicit many funny responses from the real fae. There is the usual fighting between good and evil and we learn some surprising facts about Robin that lend themselves to future storylines. In particular, I hope there will be a story about Raven. We get lots of glimpses into the lives of the characters from previous stories, especially Duncan, Jaden and Moira, which I have to say I really enjoy. I feel that it enrichs the story more when past characters still play apart in a series. We also get to learn more about King Oberon. I look forward to his story with the Princess Cassie.

A Secret will try to tear away Robin's humanity, and only Michaela will be able to pull him back from the brink. Why you should read it: All the Gray Court books are fun and devastatingly steamy. The books are graphic and the heroes are tortured and powerful. The Hob has added layers of intrigue and secrets because Michaela is human and Robin goes "undercover" as Ringo, but the chemistry off the two is fantastic. This e-book is perfect for a rainy day or a few hours away from the world. I'd definitely recommend reading the first three books in the series: Dare to Believe, Noble Blood and Artistic Vision.

    Hob found his truebond So finally glad Hob found his HEA. Intrigue romance and mystery all comprise this latest addition to the Gray Court. Have waiting for this for a long time. It is full rescues family drama and loyalty. Give this series a chance. Interesting take on the fey.

    Love, love, love that we got the Hob's story and we will get Oberon's next! Great love story, the mystery wasn't excellent, and the editing was a bit uneven in parts, which kept it from being a 5 star book for me.

    Love the Hob. Twists she put into this story were great. Ending could have been a little better and more elaborate. Im still a little befuddled as to what the heck happened to her (what did O do to her?)

When Prince Evan Yates, the nephew of Gloriana, the Queen of the White Court, goes missing, she requests aid from Oberon, King of the Gray Court in rescuing him from his kidnappers. Oberon trusts his Hobgoblin, Robin Goodfellow, to do the job. After all, there is only one being more deadly in all of creation than Robin, and that is his King. This is a political move by the Black Court, but the kidnapping is just a diversion for the real objective: find a way to destroy Robin and his Gray Court so that the Black can assume power once and for all. This is something that Robin is determined to stop, but like all good intentions, complications arise, this time in the persona of one delightful and off center woman, Michaela Exton. All her life, Michaela has been in love with Robin Goodfellow, never once believing he could be real. When Robin goes undercover at the Fairy Con where the negotiations are underway for the return of the victim, Michaela meets Robin, disguised as a man named Ringo Midori, and is drawn to him. Robin recognizes her as his truebond mate, but finds he has unexpected competition for her attention from the most dangerous representative of the Black Court, Lord Raven MacSweeney, the Fear Dearc. But things are not all they appear to be, and as Robin/Ringo falls under the delight of finding his truebond mate, things begin to spiral out of control in more ways than could be imagined. Can Robin win his fair lady’s hand, while trying to find Prince Evan, and uncover the true reason behind the Black Queen’s trickery? When tragedy strikes, will Robin survive, or will he cause total devastation in his madness? The Hob is Dana Marie Bell’s fourth entry into the Gray Court series, and is an excellent addition. The world here, as always with Ms. Bell, is extremely well defined, and the characters are all larger than life. This is an imaginative and humorous look behind the scenes at a fantasy convention, as seen through the eyes of the ‘real’ beings, and I enjoyed the irony of it all. There is a darker edge to this, with multiple plot lines running through it, and questions as to who can be trusted throughout the story. Make no mistake, in spite of all the side trips, this is Robin and Michaela’s story, and one of the funniest and most tragic of the series yet. Michaela Exton is unusual, with a streak of impetuousness and a total disregard for propriety. She is smart, determined and off the wall silly at times, but her devotion to her small patients at the hospital where she works is nothing less than a mama bear for her cubs. She is sassy, and has no internal filters to stop her from saying the most absurd things at times. Her total dedication to Robin Goodfellow, defending her imaginary lover to all her friends, is delightful, especially once she meets the real thing. Once she discovers that all the creatures she believed were imaginary are, in fact, as real as she is, she accepts with an open mind and an open heart. She doesn’t understand how she can love Robin Goodfellow, yet want Ringo too, until he reveals all to her in one night of passion like none she’s known before. I love Michaela, with her funky orange Jeep, her strength of character, and her courage in the face of it all. Robin Goodfellow AKA The Hob, Oberon’s Hobgoblin, Puck or a myriad of other titles, is the strong, dangerous and extremely lonely man, watching as his friends and acquaintances meet their bonded mates, leaving him ever more alone. Robin is handsome, strong, and extremely loyal to those he surrounds himself with. But he is also lonely, and his dreams of a mate, just one person to be with have been with him a long time. When he meets Michaela, he is stunned to recognize her as the woman from his recent and very hot dreams, and realizes she is meant to be his. I love Robin, for his sense of loyalty, and his total devotion to those he calls friend., and of course, he is totally hot. I loved watching as he fell under the spell of this tiny human woman, and the things he did to win her. This story is a bit more complex than most of the gray Court Books. There is the usual political posturing from the Black Court, especially from the Malmayne Clan. But there is the side issue of the kidnapping of Prince Evan, the murders around Philadelphia by the Water Horse, or each uisge, and the mystery of Raven MacSweeney’s presence at the negotiations. I loved that Ms. Bell brings in the characters from all the previous books, giving us a look at what is happening with everyone. I enjoyed watching as Ms. Bell subtly wove each of the threads into one marvelous tapestry of love, passion, loss, reunion and a touch of revenge, for a spectacular conclusion to Robin and Michaela’s tale. My one complaint…Ms. Bell has learned the art of the tease, and has left us with a cliffhanger of an ending for the next Gray Court book. I recommend this for those who want to laugh, cry, and fall in love with a rascal named Puck and the woman who steals his heart.

Ah, Dana Marie Bell. One of my favourite authors, possessing the seal of complete trust from me. Which I’m sure she’s completely honoured by. The Hob is book four in the Gray Court series. I was a little disappointed by this. Now if you pay attention to my ratings then you might wonder why I say that about a 4-star book. Yes it was very good and I try to review good books as much as possible and only give the worst books attention to warn others. I want to tell you about authors I like to give them a greater following and thus secure more books for me. But… I was expecting a 5-star read in this and it just didn’t quite get there. Let’s start with what I expected/hoped for and didn’t get. Number one, I wanted to see behind Robin’s seeming, like with the Dunne’s and their mates. We got hints on what Robin looks like (apparently it’s monstrous – according to him) and we do get most of an explanation on what the Tunguska explosion was. Apparently both Robin and Oberon got extremely angry in a heated argument and lost control. Nevertheless we don’t see Robin lose his seeming (and incidentally his shit) through Michaela’s point of view only through Robin’s and at that moment he’s not sane enough to mention what he looks like. Number two, we don’t really get a good explanation of what Robin’s kind is and how they mate. It’s implied that he, like Oberon is actually immortal instead of long-lived and contrary to my thought’s not actually a Sidhe. Somehow they make love, Michaela says she’s his and BAM! We’re done. I thought he was just going off on a me-man you-woman macho thing not claiming her. And finally, what about Michaela’s family? They’re all (I assume) Tuatha De Dannan descendants too so theoretically they can be changed as well. In “ Dare to Believe ” Ruby is very clearly an orphaned only child who has only one friend left. She can spend the rest of her life with Leo and seeing as she’s now in Nebraska visit Mandy often for ten years and then email and such for as long as possible, even if in her later years Mandy wants to visit Leo could roll Mandy and make her think that they both got old. Michaela has parent and several siblings and even if they can convince the family that Michaela hasn’t lost her mind marrying this guy after a week, she’s got way more people to miss and miss her. Now if in a later book, Robin follows up on the hint and sets up Red and Michaela’s sister I might forgive this issue, but otherwise it’s a big thing to ignore and pushes the HEA ending into more of a HFN. And I don’t like HFN’s in series’. Now onto the positive goodness. Robin is awesome. He has not lost an ounce of his awesome in translation, in fact between Tunguska, Oberon, Cassie and everything he exceeds the three previous books of awesome. Michaela is also awesome and I really felt like she was good enough for Robin. Don’t you hate it when you wait and wait for a character’s story and their partner isn’t as good as past protagonists, let alone good enough for your favourite character. *cough* Archeron *cough*. The background where we see Robin and how he deals with his Blades, (can I have Big Red?) and they way he wants to recruit Kael is classic. What we see and discover about the Raven Lord? Well I don’t want to spoil but my heart broke a little for him and his parents. The red cap who vowed his fealty to Michaela. Wow. But the most surprising, amazing thing really is Oberon. He got kidnapped and left Robin as his regent. Holy hecksicles. I was not expecting that at all. But maybe that will make him loosen up in regards to Cassie. So yes this was really enjoyable and a great entry in the series, but the few tiny nitpicks stopped me from giving it a 5/5. If any of them get sorted in a future book I’ll revise this score to a 4.5.

Here he meets his true bond Michaela. Michaela has always dreamed of Puck, she had an unnatural obsession with Midsummer Night's Dream. But Puck has a rival for Michaela's affection, she has managed to gain the affection of the fearsome Lord Raven, a member of the Dark Queen's convoy.

Puck is sent to accompany the convoy to negotiate the boy's release, the chosen spot: a fairy convention. Here he meets his true bond Michaela. Michaela has always dreamed of Puck, she had an unnatural obsession with Midsummer Night's Dream. But Puck has a rival for Michaela's affection, she has managed to gain the affection of the fearsome Lord Raven, a member of the Dark Queen's convoy. But as Titania's convoy spreads evil and danger at the convention, it puts Michaela in danger. They must survive the dangerous times ahead as he fights for her attention from Raven. What I Liked and Didn't: I'm really liking the characters in this book. Michaela can come off as a bit naive but it just makes her nice, who else would want to help a redcap even after they've just helped attacked you. I like her whimsy and the fact she attends a fairy convention. Puck's a weird character, he comes across and mysterious and somewhat dangerous except with Ruby and now Michaela. I've wanted him to have his happy ending since he gave Jaden some of his blood in apology in book one. When it comes to Michaela and Robin's relationship, it had a rocky start. I didn't really like the whole fake love triangle between Michaela, "Ringo, and Puck. It made the rivalry between Raven and Robin a bit redundant if he was fighting with himself too. I did like that there was a happy ending but the happy ending with Michaela was a bit annoying. It just reminded me a supernatural where nothing permanently bad ever happened. It can get a bit tedious when everything bad is perfectly solved, or when everything is fixed and better than it was before. Final Thoughts: I'd say that this is my second favourite book of the series, maybe even level with the first book of the series. I quite liked Michaela and Robin and while I'm annoyed that everything finished with a neat little bow wrapped around it, I'm still glad that they're gotten their happily ever after together. Would I recommend it? Definitely, I would the entire series. Will I be carrying on the series? I suppose so, I'm curious as to how Miss Bell can Oberon become an attractive hero.

Michaela was the perfect opposite for Goodfellow, if that makes sense. She was obvious, where he was devious; kind where he was sarcastic. She was so opposite his personality that she was the best thing for him! She didn’t try to change him so much as make him more conscious of his actions. He was still mischievous Puck, goading and playing with everyone he met, but his reasons for acting the way he did changed. This ending was one I had no preparation for. The author shocked me and the Grey Court with events. I am seriously excited to read the next book, Oberon and Cassie’s story (thank you DMB for not making me wait to discover they were getting theirs!) because I can tell it’s going to be EPIC. Something seriously big is coming. The possible futures Sean has seen combined with the movements of the Dark Court and the Malmayne families have ensured it. Bell has such a unique storyline going that future books can take the readers in any direction! She is one of the few authors I read who drops bombs on me, and makes me enjoy the drama!

She's dreamed of Robin/Puck since she was young and has become obsessed with any fairytale that mentions the man she's come to fall in love with. So why is it that when she meets Ringo she can't help the attraction she feels towards him? This story between these two characters was actually pretty explosive. They had chemistry that was off the charts and Michaela accepted Robin with no qualms. However, I will say I did feel the story was bit more rushed than the others. There is stuff that I'm sure Michaela never read about Robin that he never told her. I just feel Robin still remained a mystery to us because there was so much that wasn't explained about him.

Robin Goodfellow has been hoping he would find his truebond for a long time and now that he has found her, how will he keep her safe and alive despite Shane Dunne's prophecy? Especially, when she does crazy things; like rushing in to save a Red Cap's life.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I hovered between giving this 3 and 4 stars and in the end went with 3...but think more like 2.5 because it was a disappointment. Maybe it was just that I was looking forward to this one more than any of the others, but it just all felt very obvious and contrived. Robin Goodfellow's match, Michaela has been in love with him for all of her life, obsessing over Puck even though she is teased "mercilessly" (i.e. Stupidly) by her friends since she was young.

The saving grace to this is that now I am so caught up in the intertwining plot that I already have the next book.

    First of all, the cover is actually distracting and had I not read other books in this series, I'm not sure I would have wanted to pick it up. However, I enjoyed the Hob in the Dana Marie Bell's Gray Court series since the very first book and I looked forward to this entry. This was a decent entry - not the best, not the worst. I wish I got to know him a bit better, and he still feels more like an enigma but I did like the heroine Michaela and the potential for more books in the series with the First of all, the cover is actually distracting and had I not read other books in this series, I'm not sure I would have wanted to pick it up.

This is not a standalone type of book and I think you miss out on a lot of what's going on without reading the books in order.

    The Hob is one of the most feared members of Oberon's court next to Oberon himself. He sees many others find their true mates. Is there someone out there for him? Michaela is a pediatric nurse who deals with children with cancer. Her heart is an open book. She sees the good in everyone. Can these two souls find each other and be complete or will tragedy tear them apart? I really enjoyed this story. I was happy that The Hob finally found love and someone who accepted him for who and what he was. The Hob is one of the most feared members of Oberon's court next to Oberon himself.

To fully enjoy this story, I recommend that you read the earlier books in this series. The ending is an excellent introduction to the next book in the series.

    Well All I have to say is that the cover page does not do The Hob justice, that needs to be changed and second Michaela was just too nice, naive. It started to get on my nerves, but I got over it because I loved The Hobgoblin more. I felt that the secondary characters were portrayed a little like jokes and not the ferocious being that they are.. Was it just me? Perhaps but again I got over it because Robin Goodfellow, There were parts that had me cracking up who thought that a faerie convention Well All I have to say is that the cover page does not do The Hob justice, that needs to be changed and second Michaela was just too nice, naive.

And we also see a new side to The Hob. It was entertaining.. :D

    I love Dana Marie Bell. I must. She's got me reading and loving books about Fae, Norse Gods, and Angels -- none of which I have any patience for normally. The Gray Court series is about the Fae, the Sidhe, Oberon and Titannia, all that stuff. I can't even really review Robin's story as it's own book; like Shelly Laurenston, Ms Bell continues a long-running arc with a big cast of characters that cross-pollinate each other's stories.

    One of the best books in the series! I love love love it! As much as I love Sean, Leo, and Moira...'sigh', Nothing and no one can beat The Hob! What is a Fae story without Goodfellow? I was so psyched when I seen this book was coming out I couldn't wait to read it! I loved it so much I read it twice in a row. I feel really bad for what he has to deal with *not going to spoil*, the dark queen. And as a side note: Robin Dude, if I ever get to personally meet you and it's as a women with a mans voic One of the best books in the series! I love love love it!

Finally this books answers some nagging questions and you finally get to see inside the enigma that is Robin Goodfellow, aka. The Hob, aka. Puck, aka. Pan, ect. LOL, how can you not love a guy who has that many names!!!! Also I love the new twist with Raven Macsweeny, most definitely like his character and cant wait to see more of him. Cant The fourth book.

    Sadly this is another book in an otherwise fantastic series that fell a little flat for me. The characters just didnt click with me the way the others did and i just didnt connect with them. The plot also wasnt as captivating to me and overall this just wasnt as pleasant of a read. There was nothing actively wrong with the writing, characters, or plot they just didnt work for me unfortunately. I just didnt feel the connection between robin and michaela and i think that ruined the whole book for Sadly this is another book in an otherwise fantastic series that fell a little flat for me.

    I adore this series I did not think this series could get any better. Happily I was wrong. Robin has always been such a lonely character. When Ruby chose Leo I was heartbroken for him. He is such an intense character with a dark purpose. Robin finally gets his family in this book. Every page pulls the story forward and the many layers create a well developed world that warns you as you live the story. It has been an amazing journey and continues to leave this reader satisfied and eager for more.
