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 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 setting. I'm not a big fantasy reader but this world doesn't confuse and I just love it. Greta beat the big bad from the first book, Agramon, but sadly her troubles are not over. First she has to face discrimination. Isaac wants her to be his queen (insert dreamy sigh here) but the people of Mylena will not be letting a human queen take over so easily. Plus something isn't quite right with her ever since she defeated Agramon. The fairies claim they can help so she ventures to the Glass Kingdom for answers.

In Mylena no journey is easy and no one is trustworthy. I could never guess what would happen next. Lots of surprises and twists and turns and unexpected betrayals. Unexpected heartbreak. Wyatt also hasn't completely left the picture. He was a sweet guy but I wasn't a huge fan of him in the first book. I definitely saw more of his loyalty, bravery, and carrying nature in this book. While he wasn't quite over Greta I didn't feel like the love triangle was dragging on. I really didn't feel like it was ever actually a triangle. Greta's heart and mine as well belong to the Goblin King! The ending was great although left quite a few things hanging. I'm just dying to see where the gang will go next and how they will react to this new development! I really hope the wait for the third book isn't quite as long as the wait for this one but either way I'm sure it will be worth it!

"Visiting the provinces has made me realize it's far past time I make it clear to one and all that my heart is claimed and my commitment to you is true."

"Come on, you know you want to get some alone time with me."
"I know how fond you are of ravishing me in closets," he whispered with a grin.
She shook her head. "One time...and you're never going to let me forget it, are you?"
"But when I do get you alone again, I don't want to be rushed."
The Great Mother save her, that sounded hot.

"Please, Isaac. I just want..."
"What wishes do you make of me now?" His voice was a low murmur that teased the wispy strands at her temple until she felt the hesitant press of his lips. "I'll grant every one."

"I'd prefer that you never let me go," he said, suddenly serious. "But if you must, know that because of you I will never truly be Lost. You can always call me back."

Greta and the Goblin King (Mylena Chronicles, #1)
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...

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.
