The youngest, half-goblin son of the Emperor has lived his entire life in exile, distant from the Imperial Court and the deadly intrigue that surrounds it. But when his father and three sons who were in line for the throne are killed in an "accident," he has no choice but to take his place as the only surviving rightful heir.
Entirely unschooled in the art of court politics, he has no friends, no advisors, and the sure knowledge that whoever assassinated his father and brothers could make an attempt on his life at any moment.
Surrounded by those who would curry favor with the naive new emperor and overwhelmed by the burdens of his new life, he can rely only on himself amid the swirl of plots to depose him, offers of arranged marriages, and the specter of the unknown conspirators who lurk in the shadows. He must quickly adapt to life as the Goblin Emperor and surmount these hazards, lest he lose his throne - or his life.
