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…

When I first picked up the book , I couldn’t bring myself to get past the first page. I guess it was because the beginning wasn’t very appealing to me and I was a little confused. Something told me to keep reading and I found that Greta and The Goblin King was a great read. Please don’t stop reading just because of the beginning! You will be doing yourself and Chloe Jacobs (the author) a great injustice. I would’ve never thought of Issac to be the kind of Goblin to genuinely care. Like every other average male adolescent, he’s headstrong, and takes pleasure in playfully annoying his ‘crush’. He enters her dreams and plagues her mind in a way that confuses Greta’s feelings, because humans are so hated in Mylena. Later on , she finds out there are more of her kind, and they start plotting a way out of the frozen Goblin kingdom. Greta meets the demon who has caused the hatred for humans in Mylena for centuries. I feel like this would make a really epic movie.
