"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."

My Thoughts:

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 the Glass Kingdom was a great follow up and I loved going back to Mylena.

Greta is still the kickass heroine I remembered her to be and I love her so much for that. I love that she is the one taking charge and leading the way. She doesn’t let anything stop her and she never gives up. Even when things seem to be their darkest, she keeps pushing and fighting.

And then there is Isaac and I had almost forgotten how much I absolutely love and adore him. Seriously. He has stolen my heart and I don’t care if he ever gives it back or not. He is so strong and wild and rough around the edges, but he is still sweet and he cares and that combination makes him great.

I really enjoyed visiting Mylena again. Chloe has created such an incredible world. It is so captivating and dangerous and you can vividly picture it in your head. I also loved the twists and turns throughout the story. Some I saw coming but others took me completely by surprise. It really kept me on my toes. The pacing was good and I never felt bored. But that ending… OH MY GOD! I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book.

Greta and the Glass Kingdom was a great story with danger, adventure, action, and of course a swoony romance. For those of you who have been waiting for this one, the wait was most definitely worth it. And if you haven’t started this series yet, I highly suggest you do.
