Read Mighty Jack and the Goblin King (Mighty Jack, #2) Online Free - Like a bolt from the blue, Jack's little sister Maddy is gone—carried into another realm by an ogre.
When Jack and Lilly follow Maddy’s captor through the portal, they are ready for anything . . . except what they find waiting for them in the floating crossroads between worlds. Even the power of their magic plants may not be enough to get them back to earth alive.
Alone and injured, Jack and Lilly must each face their own monsters—as well as giants who grind the bones of human children to feed their “beast” and a fearsome goblin king in the sewers down below.
But when Jack finds himself in a tough spot, help comes from the most unlikely person: the goblin king!

It's no secret around here that I love Ben Hatke's work. All of it. Every last drop of ink, right down to the tiniest, silliest character. Everything is very vivid and lively, with bright, bold colors* and big, big emotions, and I always, always, always finish his stories with a giant smile on my...

I really like how this series is for kids just on the cusp of becoming teens. It's a tricky time to accurately portray, but these books feel authentic, despite all of the fantasy. This one was a bit more formulaic or less fantastical in some way, so it felt a little less exciting than the first v...

Good follow-up to the cliffhanger ending of the first book.

A great conclusion to the series but it felt almost too rushed. I’d have been happy if this had been a trilogy and we could’ve had a bit more time to enjoy this new world as well as their adventures running solo.

They quickly end up separated and Lilly actually has a plot that's worth reading this time becoming the Goblin King! M...

I loved the first "Mighty Jack" book and this second in the series doesn't disappoint. This story of a boy, his autistic sister and homeschooled neighbour starts off where the last book ended at a high point that has the characters off and running from the beginning. Non stop action from beginnin...
