The sequel to the Hansel & Gretel retelling Greta and the Goblin King ups the stakes of danger and romance. As conflict surges across Mylena, the tough Greta struggles to save those she loves.
Against all odds, Greta and the Goblin King miraculously survived the battle against the evil Agramon. Greta should be happy to be alive and ready to claim her place in Mylena by Isaac's side. Yet nothing is the way she thought it would be. The battle against Agramon left a dark magick inside Greta that will eventually kill her. Isaac hasn't been the same since he almost went Lost. And there are whispers of a rebellion brewing throughout Mylena...
Determined to save Mylena from a bitter civil war, they travel to the mysterious Glass Kingdom to form an uneasy alliance with the deadly Faerie race. But when an unexpected disaster tears Greta and Isaac apart, she must make the journey on her own. Along the way, she discovers a conspiracy stretching back to events she never thought she would have to revisit, betrayal from allies whose loyalty she never questioned, and an enemy vying to control all of Mylena.
Follow Greta into unexpected romance, explosive secrets, and shocking betrayals that will leave her and all of Mylena forever changed in the stunning second installment of The Mylena Chronicles.
Greta and the Glass Kingdom by Chloe Jacobs
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. I was hooked on book one, Greta and the Goblin King and found myself immediately reeled into book two, Greta and the Glass Kingdom, as well.
The story is fast passed and action packed with nail biting suspense that will keep you hanging on till the end.
Greta and the Glass Kingdom is a magnetic, magical, mystical must read!
I highly recommend that you become wrapped up into Jacobs' storytelling, it is a must read story for any young adult fantasy reader.
