Synopsis (from Goodreads):
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 human queen. 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.

My Review:
In this novel Chloe Jacobs has created a unique world filled with lots of interesting characters, the main character Greta starts with lots of problems to overcome and they all seem to get worse by the second. Yet even despite all of that the book starts out slow and takes far too long to get the ball rolling.
Few problems with the main relationship in Greta and the Goblin King, Miss Jacobs may have relied on that book to show the connection that Greta and Isaac have, it is so obvious that Greta bless her heart is willing to do anything for Isaac and you don’t see why Greta loves Isaac so much.

But what really captured me into Greta and the Glass Kingdom was all the amazing plot twists, the book started out cliched and that got me worrying but once the story started moving all the clichés fell to the side. This continues with plot twist after plot twist that so kept throwing me loop from loop, but as the story was nearing the end I saw a clichéd ending making its way to me, but Chloe Jacobs threw one final plot amazing twist that brought the book to a very unexpected close.

My Rating:
