Review of Greta and the Goblin King by Chloe Jacobs

23990329Title: Greta and the Goblin King
Author: Chloe Jacobs
Series: Mylena Chronicles Book 2

Publisher: Entangled Teen
Synopsis:

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…

Rating: I will be giving this book a 3 out of 5 stars. I really wanted to love this book. I  had a little problem with this book. The book feels like it takes place in the middle of the story instead of in the beginning when you first start reading it. I feel like we are missing a lot the background between Greta and the Goblin King. It just feels like I need more  to really understand how they have gotten to the point where they are. You get little bits here and there but I think the author really should have taken the time to really expand on their meeting and what Greta’s day to day life was like when she first came to Mylena. As a reader, I would have gotten a lot more out of this book if it had a better set up in the beginning. Now, thats not to say the book was not good. I am giving it a 3 out of 5 stars. You do see a shift in the character as she develops throughout the book and she definitely is someone I can understand in terms of her choices. I will possibly be reading the second book. If you are someone who is looking for a book with romance, action, and goblins then I definitely would recommend this book for you.
