Read an EXCERPT
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..
Greta and the Goblin King was an unexpectedly wonderful book to read. The plot was compelling and the writing wove such an enjoyable and surprising fantasy tale. I read this book in one day because I could not put it down!
When Greta was 13 she tried to save her brother by pushing him out of a witch’s fire only to be sucked into it herself. As it turns out it wasn’t a fire but a portal into another realm. In this world called Mylena, humans are hated because it is thought that they brought down a curse on all who live there.
For four years Greta was taught to be tough and to hide that she is a human. Now as a bounty hunter she works hard to survive and to find a way back home. Only Isaac stands in her way as he has found a way into her dreams. What will happen if he finds out she is not what she seems to be…
To say I am looking forward to the next book in this series is a serious understatement! Greta is one of my favorite female heroines of this year and Isaac is so dark and yummy. I cannot wait to see what happens next with them in this unique adventure!
