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.
In GRETA AND THE GLASS KINGDOM, Chloe Jacobs has created a fun and unique world, filled with lots of interesting characters. The main character, Greta, starts off with lots of problems to overcome, and they all seem to get worse quickly. Yet despite that the book starts out very slow, taking far too long to get the ball rolling.
I also had a few problems with the main relationship in the Mylena Chronicles series. I think Jacobs relied too heavily on the first book, GRETA AND THE GOBLIN KING, to show the connection that Greta and Isaac have. It is obvious that Greta is willing to do anything for Isaac, but as the reader you don’t fully understand why. All you see of their relationship is conflict between Greta and Isaac, and you just don’t see why Greta loves Isaac so much.
What really drew me into GRETA AND THE GLASS KINGDOM were all the amazing plot twists. The book started out very cliched and that had me worried, but once the story actually started moving those cliches fell to the wayside. The book continues with plot twist after plot twist that kept throwing me for a loop. However, as the story was drawing to a close I saw a very cliched ending coming up, but Jacobs threw one final amazing plot twist that brought the book to an excellent and very unexpected close.
I fear the next book will start out as slowly as this one did, but I am definitely looking forward to it. Jacobs has left the series in a good place to continue the Mylena Chronicles. I’m just hoping it isn’t another two years before the next one comes out.Series Titles:
