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

I absolutely loved the first book, Greta and the Goblin King! I have been dying for this book and I'm so happy it didn't disappoint. My major worry was that there wouldn't be enough Isaac. LOL I mean I'm not sure there can ever really be enough but I was still happy that even though this story has Greta making a journey on her own Isaac is never far from her thoughts or dreams. If you have not read the first book and met this sexy and sweet Goblin King then you really must!

I love the fantasy set

Two years is a long time to wait for the next book...but all is forgiven with Chloe Jacobs ability to weave pure magic into her pages.

Greta and the Goblin King, took on a Demon in the previous installment. During their battle some of the demon's taint has dug deep into Greta. Together Greta and Issac, the king, are facing the prejudiced against Greta's humanity while they are struggling through her ability to keep the evil tainted magic under control.

I was not surprised that I loved this story.

Well looks like I'm in the minority here. I didn't enjoy this book.

In the beginning, I thought it was going good. It starts out where we were left off but the feel was different. Greta was no longer bad ass bounty hunter but a whinny, insecure girl. I didn't like the direction that the book took right off the bat and I have to say, I only made it like 60 pages in. The whole story felt contrived and strained

I have been waiting so long to get my hands on this book. I had been building up the anticipation for over two years now. I’m not going to lie, I was nervous. What if the sequel didn’t live up to my expectations? What if I didn’t love the series as much anymore? I mean I love Isaac and I had so much hope for the sequel, but as with any sequel I always have those little voices of doubt in my head. I shouldn't have worried though because Greta and th

With thrills, twists, and an unexpected betrayal, Greta and the Glass Kingdom was a wonderful sequel that topped the first. It upped the stakes, revealed a few secrets, and the ending changed the game. I thought it was great.

Greta was as strong as always and she went through some growth. In book 1, she came across as narrow-minded and somewhat cold. But, in this book, she became more accepting of the land she found herself in and more willing to hope for the impossible. It made her a more likabl

I don't know how I feel about this! I'm serious. Everything felt so...sudden. At least everything after the party scene. Greta goes on a adventure. Things go badly. Isaac comes for her. Things go even worse. Greta keeps traveling and things get even worse. There is literally NO GOOD things that happen. Every step Greta takes is one step further into misery and despair.

And I just couldn't understand why.

This is a pretty standard length book by today's YA fantasy standards. And while the first bo

Greta and the Glass Kingdom is book two of The Mylena Chronicles. This book continues where book one left off. Greta is living in the Goblin King’s palace. Every night she has nightmares and the dark magick that seeped into her at the portal fights to overtake her. Siona, Issac’s cousin seems to be the only one capable of helping her tamp it down.

Chloe Jacobs' Greta and the Glass Kingdom was a long time coming! But the wait was totally worth it because this read was epic!

We pick up the story where we left off for the most part, and naturally my over-stuffed brain has read wayyyyy too much since this read and I couldn't remember everything that happened. But there's enough detailed weaved through the pages that I was able to get enough details to know what's going on. Greta is living in Isaac's palace, but is still plagued with nightmares

I read Greta and the Goblin King just a couple of weeks ago, and I absolutely loved it. It was full of emotion, passion, romance, adventure, magic. I had a feeling that I would like it, but I had no idea just how much. I read it in a couple of hours. Just couldn't put it down! I wanted Glass Kingdom in my hands, immediately after reading Goblin King. Thankfully, I am a part of this wonderful tour, so I didn't have to wait too long!

**ARC received in exchange for a fair and honest review**

I'm so happy to finally get the next part of Greta and Isaac's story. I have really missed being in the world of Mylena.

The world that Chloe created is by far one of my favorite aspects of this series. She really created a fantastical world filled with creatures that are both scary and amazing. I love the little bits of lore and culture she wove into her story. The land itself was really amazing, not just the creatures that inha

Sweet baby Jesus, I was not prepared for this. I did not expect the author to have such a devilish streak that she likes to torture her characters so much! And then make it better to have to throw you for a big ole loop at the last second of the ending. And boy oh boy have I become a die hard fan after this one. I don't even know what to say except that this writer has made me love these characters so much that I'm a mess at the end of the book.

A mystical story that will completely change the way you think about fantasy novels!

When we left Greta, she had won the heart of the Goblin King and defeated Agramon, but unbeknownst to readers, another trial was heading Greta's way. In this next installment of the Mylena Chronicles we discover that Isaac wants Greta to rule his kingdom with him. While this seems romantic to the literary audience, it is anything but to the people of Mylena. To them it feels like betrayal. How can their kingdom

I liked this book better than the last especially because of Greta's character. It was a vast improvement. The story of Greta continues with Isaac wanting her to be his queen (loved that) and something within Greta is going on that she needs to journey to the Glass Kingdom with the gang (some new and minus Isaac).

I loved Isaac. He was my favorite character in book 1 and is still is. I was shocked about what happened to him and I was like please let it not be like Dimitri's situation in VA. It's

After the events of Greta and the Goblin King, there is a lot of craziness going on in Greta and the Glass Kingdom. Ever since Isaac pulled Greta back into Mylena through the black portal, she's had a dark magick inside her soul that she isn't fully able to control. Plus, she's been outed as a human in a world that hates humans, so when Isaac wants to publicly announce his intentions for her among his people, it doesn't go so well.

Greta and Issac are finally together, but their happiness is interrupted by Greta's recurring nightmares after the events with Agramon. Greta also feels a dark magick slowly spreading inside her which not only affects her but Issac too, leading him to draw nearer to becoming Lost. In order to stop the darkness, Greta journies to the glass kingdom to enlist the help of the faerie queen, but her journey is full of obstacles from ogres guarding bridges to blood wraiths and even the betrayal of a su ...more
Greta and The Goblin King was a story which I absolutely adored, I loved the unusual but believable relationship that Greta found herself in, but most of all I loved Greta’s feistiness, her strength in that she never gave up. So I was thrilled that Greta and The Goblin King wasn’t the last that we would be seeing of this crazy world and fantastic characters that Jacob’s created.

I loved how the story immediately kicked off from where we were left off, Greta was still stuck in Mylena, but it seeme

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy.

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

Didn't like the plot but the ending was sooooo good!

I loved Greta and the Goblin King so I feel really awful that I didn't quite share the same enthusiasm for GRETA AND THE GLASS KINGDOM. It started off very slowly and it wasn't long before it was one out-of-the-frying-pan-into-the-fire situation after another, after another, and so on. A lot was happening but strangely it felt like nothing was happening at the same time.

Greta, like many a heroine before her, has gotten stuck with some bad magic

Unfortunately, this book just wasn't a winner for me. I think with the three year gap between when I read the first book and when I read this one, my tastes changed rather substantially. I really did enjoy Greta and the Goblin King upon its release, but the series has lost its magic for me.

Things that irked me in the previous book were exacerbated in this one, namely:

1. The very colloquial/slangy language in a high fantasy setting. While it makes sense in that Greta is from the human/modern wor

I received this book, opened it up and didn't understand anything. So after days of trying I went looking for the first book. Found the kindle edition for 99 cents. (thank you amazon).

Better than the first one but still not great

I like that the story flow better, probably because you already have all the pertinent facts. I am however disappointed in Greta because she lets herself be dissuaded from the things she believes or wants to believe very easily. She also wasn't paying attention to the situation at hand very well because it was clearly obvious to me at least. I get that she had Isaac and what was going on with the magick in her to be focused on her surroundings, not to
I read the first book FOREVER ago and then finally got my hands on the sequel. I reread the first book and was so excited to continue Greta's story and see if she ever made it back to Earth (and to follow up on Isaac, of course). But upon reading her short-spent time in the castle among the court and her journey to the Glass Kingdom, my interest waned to the point where I really couldn't finish willingly. I literally skipped over some chapters just to reach the end and say I finished. I don't kn ...more

It’s been a long time since I read Greta and the Goblin King. The publication of this second book was pushed back from its original date, and the original date already marked a pretty long wait between books one and two. The problem here is that when I went back into this world, I remembered having enjoyed book 1, but my memories of the actual story were vague at best. I’d lost the feel of the book and I’d lost the connection between the characters, which leads me to my first issue with book 2:
