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…

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, go... ...more
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 r... ...more

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 w... ...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........ ...more
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 t... ...more
