The sequel to the Hansel & Gretel retelling Greta and the Goblin King ups the stakes of danger and romance. As conflict surges across Mylena, the tough Greta struggles to save those she loves.

Against all odds, Greta and the Goblin King miraculously survived the battle against the evil Agramon. Greta should be happy to be alive and ready to claim her place in Mylena by Isaac's side. Yet nothing is the way she thought it would be. The battle against Agramon left a dark magick inside Greta that will eventually kill her. Isaac hasn't been the same since he almost went Lost. And there are whispers of a rebellion brewing throughout Mylena...

Determined to save Mylena from a bitter civil war, they travel to the mysterious Glass Kingdom to form an uneasy alliance with the deadly Faerie race. But when an unexpected disaster tears Greta and Isaac apart, she must make the journey on her own. Along the way, she discovers a conspiracy stretching back to events she never thought she would have to revisit, betrayal from allies whose loyalty she never questioned, and an enemy vying to control all of Mylena.

Follow Greta into unexpected romance, explosive secrets, and shocking betrayals that will leave her and all of Mylena forever changed in the stunning second installment of The Mylena Chronicles.

Okay, Net Galley isn't my biggest fan so when they approved me for Greta and the Glass Kingdom I was in shock. I was waiting for what felt like centuries for this book and then to have it on my iPad the next day was like a dream come true. I mean I missed Greta. I missed Isaac, I missed the sweet moments between them. I missed the gruesome fights that had me wanting to go deck someone and I'm just so happy that the second book exists.

In the Glass Kingdom, Greta is still the same stubborn-headstrong girl that I liked from the first book Goblin King. She has more responsibilities now and even more enemies and everything changes in a blink of an eye. FYI those changes almost killed me, I applaud you Chloe because I was left stunned with so many feels.

This world that Chloe Jacobs has created has got to be one of my favorites ever. There's just something new and fascinating that I haven't read before. The story-line is so different from what's currently out there that makes me like it even more.  This is a fantasy with some paranormal elements mixed with a sarcastic human girl and you already know it's going to be a kick ass story.

Chloe Jacobs did the impossible and made me love the sequel more than the first book. The stakes are higher than before and I can't wait to find out what will happen in the next installment of this freaking-fabulous series.
