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.
I have to say there were definitely parts of this book that kept stressing me out. Wyatt was not actually one of the things but he was managing to annoy me anyway. I liked how the plot was more of an adventure for this one. We have a lot more going on getting from point a to point b. As they take the sometimes treacherous journey from the Goblin palace to the Glass Kingdom.It helps keep the action moving and allows me to focus on something else instead of the things stressing me out.
We also get to know a little more about the fairies that keep themselves locked away. About who they are and what they can do. Also what Siona’s connection with them is. Besides the fairies we get more in depth look at Siona and of course Wyatt is still hanging around.
Of course I love Greta and Isaac and how sweet their love is. Especially because they have a whole world against them. I like how they can make one another gentle because they are both very fierce.
I think Greta has really changed in this book from the first. She is more accepting of her role and her life in Mylena. Especially since she is finally open with her feelings about Isaac. It really brings her character to a new a level because she is not so closed off and cold. She is more trusting which can be good and bad. Or maybe it’s more that she is now willing to take the chance that someone might be trustworthy or not.
I continued to be completely absorbed in Mylena and the story. I can not wait for the next book so I can find out what happens!
Greta and the Goblin King (Mylena Chronicles #1)
by Chloe Jacobs
Release Date: 12/11/12
Summary from Goodreads:
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...
