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 saved her brother when she was 13 years old by pushing him out of a witches fire that was really a portal. While saving her brother Greta fell through the portal and entered Mylena. A land of goblins, faeries, horrible snowy weather, and also humans are hunted there. A sprite took her in and t ...more

Vampires, werewolves, shape shifters, dragons what else is really left for paranormal books to delve into? How about goblins? Those crafty shifty looking buggers from Harry Potter immediately came to mind, but in Greta and the Goblin King we are faced with a whole different kind of goblin, a goblin ...more

So is it just me or does the cover chick look like Karen Gillan/ Amy Pond?

Actually holding the book, not so much. Close though.

You know when you start reading a book and instantly you know it's going to be a favorite?

This is one of those books for me. I was planning of 5 staring it but thr ...more

My first thought when I was reading this book was: "This is.... a debut novel?!"

Because it was flipping fantastic.

A phenomenal debut! Brimming with fantasy, magic and a sizzling paranormal romance, Chloe left me wanting so much more of Greta and Issca's story. I wasn't hard for me to get swept me away with Greta and the Goblin King. This action packed debut is fabulous! I'm a huge fan of well written fantasy st ...more

I loved this story! So unique and exciting. The inhabitants of Mylena are scary, and beautiful... just like the frozen landscape. Greta is a tough girl and she must adapt or die in this new world that she has been pulled into. Love the Goblin King. ...more

The moment I saw sign-ups for the blog tour for Greta and the Goblin King; I simply knew that I had to be a part of this tour. This book sounded like something I would enjoy. It reminded me of the movie Labyrinth from the 80s with David Bowie and puppe ...more

What can I share with you about this place called Mylena? It is a world with extremely tough living conditions. It’s a land with many ruthless creatures roaming. If you didn’t know how to defend yourself and you had limited survival skills in the wilderness, you’re out of luck. Chances are you would ...more

“You’re mine, Greta. I would bring you back from death itself if I had to.”

Oh Good freaking Lord, I don't even know what to write! This book was sooooooo good and I'm soooo glad that it stumbled on me. It was an un-put-downable, bunking-school, quit-doing-your-homework, forget-to-eat-sleep-talk kind ...more

Greta and the Goblin King is the first book in the Mylena Chronicles, a dark YA fantasy series by Chloe Jacobs. I was surprised I'd never heard of this series before I saw the sign up for this tour, I love this genre and I'm constantly on the hunt for new books to read. I knew just from the blurb th ...more

Did anyone picture David Bowie in spandex at the words "Goblin King"?

Or was that just me?

Who would have thought that a goblin of all things could be the hero of any tale? Even if your childhood wasn't tainted by that movie Labyrinth and David Bowie with his spandex bulge and purple eye shadow, gobli ...more

By Jackie December 24, 2012

very different place and plot than I'm use too. I don't really go for goblinish stuff. If you are a total amateur to the world of goblins, this is a good introduction and easy to follow with all the "magic" and "descriptions" of the monsters.

I really enjoyed the love part of the story. Without reve ...more

A fantasy world parallel to ours filled with creatures of the wild forest, Goblins, Orges, Ghouls, Wood Sprites, and more, make this story an adventurous tale.
Fast-paced, action packed, with a strong female lead, makes this a winner for fantasy fans.

Greta, the human is thrusted into the world of My ...more

~Copy of the book provided by the publisher for an honest review~

When I opened Greta and the Goblin King I can admit I had very high expectations. Unfortunately, I was very worried that the book was not going to live up to the description and beautiful cover. Well guess what, I was wrong. Dead wron ...more

Greta has been living in Mylena for four years now, ever since she fell through a portal from her dimension while trying to save her little brother. The world as she knew it is only a distant memory now. The world she lives in is one she though only existed in fairy tales and horror stories.......o ...more

By Alaiel November 06, 2012

One of the greatest things about this book is Greta herself. With her we have a girl that learned to adapt to her surroundings when most of us, common humans, would have lost our minds and die in hands of the creatures in this world.
But not Greta, nop. She survived with the help of a sprite who taug ...more

Greta, at the age of 13, was thrown through a portal by a Lamia (witch) in the world of Mylena. Mylena is a world filled with goblins, ogres, ghouls, fairies and sprites and they all hate humans. They blame the humans for the evil that has cursed their lands.

To survive Greta, with the help of Luke a ...more
