synopsis

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 humanqueen. 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.

review

4 star (griffin)

I can’t say I loved this as much as the first, but, then again, middle books are the bane of my existence. There was very little Greta and Isaac, there were some excellent scenes in the beginning, but as the book went on, it became very much Greta’s book. It’s her journey dealing with the aftermath of her fight with Agramon and the residual magic that was left behind, it is also her story of how she is trying to find her place Mylena.

 

As stated above, there is very little of Greta and Isaac one on one. They are together at the beginning and find each other in the end, but in between they are both dealing with their own issues. However, that is not quite accurate. Their relationship is very much infused into the book and it is felt, and plays its own role, even when they are not together or not quite themselves. They are still very much connected to each other and that connection plays a large role in the book’s finale.

 

The rest of the plot is fully fleshed out, and introduces a large cast of new characters. The mysterious faeries come out from behind their closed gates, and we also see harpies and a bjer. All the while, Greta deals with betrayals and double crosses and must decide who to trust. Greta and the Glass Kingdom was a satisfying read that resolves some questions and asks new ones, it builds on the previously established world and left me desperately needing to know what happens next.
