Today I’m excited to take part in the Release Day Blitz for Greta and the Glass Kingdom by Chloe Jacobs. This is book two in the Mylena Chronicles, and book one was a fast-paced and thought-provoking ride. I’ll admit to some grumbling over the requisite love triangle, and concern over one of the love interests… ways of showing he cared. Not that it didn’t bother Greta too, yay! It’s still a great read and I definitely recommend it.
5 Things You Don’t Know about Isaac from Greta and the Glass Kingdom
1) Isaac has always been fascinated by technology. Mylena is a technological wasteland because of the harsh environment, but if there was ever a person who was meant to be an inventor, it’s Isaac. Before he became the goblin king, he tinkered around with things, looking for ways to help his people survive better in the harsh, endless winter of Mylena, and now that he’s the goblin king…he’s thinking BIGGER.
2) Nobody has ever said Isaac’s name without wanting something from him, and he’s never had friends because of his position in the goblin kingdom, and the fact that the people who didn’t want the benefit of his gift to enter their dreams were afraid. So Isaac has spent a lot of time by himself growing up. He travels by himself, he works by himself, and it’s made him a very reflective, thoughtful person—which is the polar opposite of Greta’s energetic, fireball personality.
3) When the previous goblin king—Isaac’s father—was killed by his uncle, Isaac knew he had to step in, even though he never wanted the responsibility of becoming the goblin king. When Isaac issued the challenge, his uncle actually laughed. He was so sure he’d be able to take his young nephew. But Isaac surprised everyone when he bested his uncle. He was fueled by a determination to protect his people from a tyrant taking over the kingdom, and also by a desire to make Mylena a more tolerant place…because he’d met Greta, and knew she was human.
4) Isaac fell for Greta because of her capacity for understanding and compassion. Before they met, she believed that she lost the ability to feel those things, but he saw them in her even when she couldn’t. It’s in the way she refuses to hunt someone just because there’s a bounty on their head. She only hunts the Lost. And it’s in the way that she protects the Mylean people even when most of them wouldn’t cry a tear to see her dead.
5) Becoming the goblin king isn’t something Isaac ever really wanted, but now that the gig has been thrust upon him, he’s determined to do a good job. He’s got big plans, not only for the goblin kingdom, but for all of Mylena. Oh, but he’d kill me if I ruined everything by spilling the beans before he’s ready for everyone to know…
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.
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…
