First Impressions

I loved Greta and the Goblin King, and have been excited to read this for ages. The book picks up pretty much where the first one ended. You're immediately thrown in to their world and their new set of problems.


Greta is pretty cool! She has to find a balance between being kick-butt and letting others take the lead. Greta has tons of problems in this book, but deals with them well. She never gives up hope, even when everyone else already has. Isaac isn't in this as much. I love the scenes with him, and love seeing him and Greta together!


While I think the writing could have been a little better (I noticed lots of common things, etc), it was overall pretty good! The story flowed well and kept me hanging until the very last page. The one thing I might have hoped for was a little down time between action scenes. They would defeat one thing, and then immediately something else would happen.


Much of the world building occurred in the first book, so this didn't require as much. That said, Greta was going on a whole new journey to new places that hadn't been explained before. I really enjoyed seeing the new places and seeing how they dealt with all the obstacles they came across. I wish I could have seen more of the Glass Kingdom though, as that seems like a pretty interesting place.

Book Trailer:


Once upon a dark time…

Greta the human bounty hunter never quite fit into the shadowed, icy world of Mylena. Yet she's managed to defeat the demon Agramon and win the love of the darkly intense Goblin King, Isaac. Now Isaac wants her to rule by his side—a human queen. And the very announcement is enough to incite rebellion…

To make matters worse, defeating Agramon left Greta tainted with a dark magick. Its unclean power threatens to destroy her and everything she loves. With the Goblin King's life and the very peace of Mylena at stake, Greta must find a cure and fast.

Her only hope lies with the strange, elusive faeries in the Glass Kingdom…if she can get there before the evil within her destroys everything.

Title: Greta and the Goblin King
Author: Chloe Jacobs
Release: December 11, 2012
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Series: Mylena Chronicles


While trying to save her brother from a witch’s fire four years ago, Greta was thrown in herself, falling through a portal to Mylena, a dangerous world where humans are the enemy and every ogre, ghoul, and goblin has a dark side that comes out with the eclipse.

To survive, Greta has hidden her humanity and taken the job of bounty hunter—and she’s good at what she does. So good, she’s caught the attention of Mylena’s young goblin king, the darkly enticing Isaac, who invades her dreams and undermines her will to escape.

But Greta’s not the only one looking to get out of Mylena. An ancient evil knows she’s the key to opening the portal, and with the next eclipse mere days away, every bloodthirsty creature in the realm is after her—including Isaac. If Greta fails, she and the lost boys of Mylena will die. If she succeeds, no world will be safe from what follows her back...

Author Bio:

Chloe Jacobs is a native of nowhere and everywhere, having jumped around to practically every Province of Canada before finally settling in Ontario where she has now been living for a respectable number of years. Her husband and son are the two best people in the entire world, but they also make her wish she'd at least gotten a female cat. No such luck. And although the day job keeps her busy, she carves out as much time as possible to write. Bringing new characters to life and finding out what makes them tick and how badly she can make them suffer is one of her greatest pleasures, almost better than chocolate and fuzzy pink bunny slippers.
