Greta and The Glass Kingdom ***Review***

Synopsis

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.

About The Author

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.

My Review

Rating: 2.5 Glasses of Wine

I received an ARC from Entangled Publishing in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.

I was sort of hoping that the second installment in The Mylena Chronicles would answer some of the questions I had in the first one. Instead it added some more questions and I wasn’t completely satisfied.

Greta was even more annoying to me in this one than she was in the previous book. The whole “I’m not pretty because my body and face is riddled with scars thing” had me rolling my eyes so many times. Also, we get that she’s a bounty hunter and supposed to be this bad ass chick (which, I really don’t get because she’s always being saved by either Isaac or Siona), but she kind pf stepped into it when she fell in love with a Goblin King. I mean really, you don’t want to wear dresses and do all the things royalty does, then get away from the royalty.

The plot kind of jumped all over the place for me and I ended up being more bored than interested. In short it was messy.

I also felt like it could have been shorter, because there were a lot of times where it seemed the author just put in more words to describe a scene that only needed a few.

The only thing I pretty much enjoyed was the ending.

I wanted to enjoy this one more than the first, but unfortunately that didn’t happen.
