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.

Chloe Jacobs is a native of nowhere and everywhere, having jumped around to practically every Province of Canada before finally settling in Ontario where she has now been living for a respectable number of years. Her husband and son are the two best people in the entire world, but they also make her wish she'd at least gotten a female cat. No such luck. And although the day job keeps her busy, she carves out as much time as possible to write. Bringing new characters to life and finding out what makes them tick and how badly she can make them suffer is one of her greatest pleasures, almost better than chocolate and fuzzy pink bunny slippers.

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...

5 Things You Don’t Know about Isaac from Greta and the Glass Kingdom

1) Isaac has always been fascinated by technology. Mylena is a technological wasteland because of the harsh environment, but if there was ever a person who was meant to be an inventor, it’s Isaac. Before he became the goblin king, he tinkered around with things, looking for ways to help his people survive better in the harsh, endless winter of Mylena, and now that he’s the goblin king…he’s thinking BIGGER.

2) Nobody has ever said Isaac’s name without wanting something from him, and he’s never had friends because of his position in the goblin kingdom, and the fact that the people who didn’t want the benefit of his gift to enter their dreams were afraid. So Isaac has spent a lot of time by himself growing up. He travels by himself, he works by himself, and it’s made him a very reflective, thoughtful person—which is the polar opposite of Greta’s energetic, fireball

3) When the previous goblin king—Isaac’s father—was killed by his uncle, Isaac knew he had to step in, even though he never wanted the responsibility of becoming the goblin king. When Isaac issued the challenge, his uncle actually laughed. He was so sure he’d be able to take his young nephew. But Isaac surprised everyone when he bested his uncle. He was fueled by a determination to protect his people from a tyrant taking over the kingdom, and also by a desire to
make Mylena a more tolerant place…because he’d met Greta, and knew she was human.

4) Isaac fell for Greta because of her capacity for understanding and compassion. Before they met, she believed that she lost the ability to feel those things, but he saw them in her even when she couldn’t. It’s in the way she refuses to hunt someone just because there’s a bounty on their head. She only hunts the Lost. And it’s in the way that she protects the Mylean people even when most of them wouldn’t cry a tear to see her dead. 

5) Becoming the goblin king isn’t something Isaac ever really wanted, but now that the gig has been thrust upon him, he’s determined to do a good job. He’s got big plans, not only for the goblin kingdom, but for all of Mylena. Oh, but he’d kill me if I ruined everything by spilling the beans before he’s ready for everyone to know…

5 Things You Don’t Know about Greta from Greta and the Glass Kingdom

1) So, the thing you probably can’t miss about Greta is that she really hates winter. But after all this time having to listen to her complain about it, I think I’ve got to cut her some slack. 

You see, she finally admitted that she used to LOVE winter. Especially when the bright sun bounced off the fluffy white snow. She’d loved the snowball fights, and building snowmen on Saturday afternoons with her brother. She always wanted to go snowboarding, but never got the chance before ending up in Mylena. And somehow you’d think that a world of winter would be all about the skiing, snowboarding, and assorted cold-weather fun, but…not so much. The combination of constant, punishing weather, and being stuck in a world where everyone hated her eventually sucked the joy out of it for her.

2) Greta is a strong, kickass bounty hunter who can totally take care of herself, and yet she wasn’t always so sure of her own abilities (even now, there are moments…) Greta would kill me if she knew I was telling anyone this, but as a child she was painfully shy and insecure. She never got stellar grades in school, and always felt a little stupid. But in Mylena she started to think that maybe she had something better than smarts. Maybe she was destined for something other than math homework and biology labs.

3) Greta has a birthmark on the back of her leg just under her butt cheek that looks a little like a strawberry. Nobody has ever seen it, not even her. In fact, she has no idea it’s there and if someone should ever find it…she’s going to be SO embarrassed.

4) Greta’s favorite color used to be pink. She had a pink backpack and pink shoes, and even wore pink clips in her little girl blonde hair. After Mylena, Greta’s favorite color became orange. Orange is the color of the juice her mother used to pour for her in the mornings, and the color of sunshine.

5) Greta’s favourite treat in the whole wide (human) world is…licorice. Yes, the big bad bounty hunter would trade her soul for a Twizzler. And when it comes to Mylena, she used to say there was absolutely nothing redeeming, nothing she liked about the icy, harsh place at all. But recently she’s found several things to like about this place that had once been so forbidding. At first, it was just the tea—made from a hardy linberry fruit. Sour and bold, it takes a little getting used to…a lot like someone she knows. And now there’s one more thing she likes about Mylena, too.
