I'd really like to see more of the re-awakened magical creatures of this book.

The Hob's Bargain is one of my reread books, loved it, and I would love if there was a sequal or another book with them featured even as secondary characters.

This was the first Book of Patti's I read and I would love to see a sequel.

Maybe a few years after events in Bargain with recollections/flashbacks  etc to fill in any gaps in a new story?

I moved to a Small condo this past year and Hobb's Bargain is the one book of Patti's I have kept in paperback version . (Slowly converting books to electronic due to space and lack of large storage area)

Hob's Bargain was my first book of Patty's as well ^_^ Boy, was I glad to have picked it up! I think Caefawn had me at "That's not a Hob, lady."

And what can I say - that tail was too endearing!

I've wondered how the minstrel managed. He was used to travel, and a position of power as the kings assassin and now he is trapped in a tiny  isolated village. Yes there are all sorts of previously mythological creatures, many of them murderous, but it is a far cry from his previous life.

Hello, Pence, welcome!  Yes, it's going to be a wrench for him, isn't it?  At least he knows a little about that ancient language, it makes him reasonably useful.
Shucks, he may end up as the replacement 'lord', being the closest thing they have now to a noble.

I first read this years ago, but it was what made me put Ms. Briggs on my auto-buy list. It's such a fantastic story. The part I liked best was how it appeared to be (in some ways) a re-telling of Beauty and the Beast, except there's no magical transformation at the end (which always irks me).
