Overall, there is a good story arc, and Jig is a hero I enjoyed rooting for. I believe the books are suitable as YA fiction. My favorite book was Goblin Quest.

Synopsis

Warriors, wizards, elves-you think they have it tough in epic fantasies? Try being a runty, nearsighted goblin amid all the sword-swinging and spell-slinging and see how long you last. Such is the lot of Jig, the wholly accidental hero of Jim C. Hines' hilarious high-fantasy spoofs Goblin Quest, Goblin Hero and Goblin War. Now all three have been rolled into one big uproarious omnibus: The Legend of Jig Dragonslayer! Hugo Award nominee Hines follows his reluctantly legendary hero Jig as he gets kidnapped by adventurers on the hunt for a magical artifact, winds up wanted by his own kind for the crime of heroism, battles dragons, pixies, necromancers and those pesky humans...and pursues his continuing quest to be left the hell alone!
