Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7-10-Four years ago, Greta saved her brother from a witch's fire and ended up transported to Mylena, a frigid land where humans are hunted and eclipses turn fairy-tale creatures into murderous beasts. To survive, the teen hides her human identity and becomes a successful bounty hunter while she searches for the portal back home. But when her guardian is brutally murdered, the bounty hunter becomes the hunted. With the demon Agramon tracking her every move, the Goblin King invading her dreams, and a looming eclipse threatening to turn all of Mylena's creatures into bloodthirsty monsters, Greta seeks vengeance on the one she holds responsible for her guardian's death-Agramon himself. This fast-paced fantasy features a resilient heroine whose daily struggle to survive has left her physically tough but emotionally isolated. Greta's constant self-sacrificing gets a little old, but her impetuousness illustrates her undying loyalty to those she cares about. Though their rushed romance smacks of stalking, Greta finds an interesting counterpart in Isaac the Goblin King, who constantly challenges her to examine who she is and where she really belongs. Packed with action and fairy-tale gore, Goblin King will keep readers riveted right up to the end, where several loose ends and the late introduction of a love triangle leave room for a likely sequel. Readers looking for a fun romp through a dangerous fairy-tale world will find that this novel fits the bill nicely. Give it to fans of Brandon Mull's Fablehaven (S & S, 2007) or Julie Kagawa's Iron King (HarlequinTeen, 2010).-Leigh Collazo, Ed Willkie Middle School, Fort Worth, TXα(c) Copyright 2013.

From the Back Cover


While trying to save her brother from the witch three years ago, Greta was thrown into the fire herself, falling through a portal to a dangerous world where humans are the enemy, and every ogre, goblin, and ghoul has a dark side that comes out with the full moon. To survive, 17-year-old 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 determination to escape. But Greta’s not the only one looking to get out of Mylena. The full moon is mere days away, and an ancient evil being knows she’s the key to opening the portal. If Greta fails, she and the boys she finds stranded in the woods will die. If she succeeds, no world will be safe from what follows her back . . .

So let me start off by being honest. I wasn't sure I would really like this book, not because it didn't sound interesting but when you think goblin's you don't exactly think 'possible hottie love interest', right? Plus there's things like ogres and gnomes and I mean...not very appealing right? However, I gave this a shot for two reasons. One, I'm a big fan of Entangled and Entangled Teen. I've yet to be really disappointed by any of their books. I'm actually huge fans of many of their books and the more I can read of their books, the happier I am. Second, this book just sounded too damn interesting not to read. As you can see by my rating, I am super glad I decided to take a chance on this book. Blew.Me.Away.

Can we talk about the cover for a second, too? This cover is absolutely spot on. Not only the setting of it is perfect but the clothing and even the models (minus the girls hair but everything can't be spot on, right?). Perfect cover so again, well done Entangled!

Now to gush about this story. This book is like nothing I've ever read before. I'm sure, if you read my reviews, you might hear me say that a lot but let me tell you...this time, I'm dead serious. I mean, just go back to my first paragraph if you need an explanation of why it's so different. Chloe Jacobs has proven me wrong. A Goblin can be sexy, powerful and so damn swoon-worthy. Isaac, who is the new Goblin King, is able to visit Greta in her dreams. Sounds creepy, right? Well, it kind of is (at first). Apparently, by saying his name it gives him access to your dreams. (I do wish there was a bit more explaining regarding this...) He tricked her in to saying his name because, with her being human, she didn't know any different. Big mistake on her part.

GRETA AND THE GOBLIN KING, a new, other-worldly fantasy series about a Lost Girl and the Goblin King she falls in love with, will remind you of many of your favorite childhood stories - while at the same time enthralling you with its likable cast of characters and stellar writing - you won't be able to help but fall in love, as well. Chloe Jacobs has got a fantastic new series with her characters Greta, Isaac, Wyatt and his motley crew of Lost Boys. She has blended the timeless tales of Hansel and Gretal, Alice in Wonderland, Labyrinth and Peter Pan - and somehow made it work. Fans of Julie Kagawa's The Immortal Rules and Iron Fey series will also find something to love about this story, which should entice both teens and adults alike.

It's a dark, dark tale that Chloe weaves, about young humans lost in a world where they are not welcome. At the story's beginning, Greta has been living in disguise as a bounty hunter sprite in order to keep the creatures of Mylena from discovering her true identity (you see, humans are not much liked in Mylena, and for supposedly good reasons which are discovered later in the story). In these last four years, she has been trained to protect herself and to hold her own in this world that is often quite unforgiving. Her situation created a very strong and likeable character in Greta. Her strength and determination, her confusion and insecurities about her place in both the world of Mylena and her human world, her desire to do what is right and ultimately the need to help others all make her a very "human" character in a story where humans are scarce. Oh, and she can kick some serious butt, too!

~Thanks to Entangled Teen and NetGalley for this eARC!~

Okay, I'll admit it. I was missing my fairytale lands. Yeah, I enjoy all this new and exciting stuff, but man sometimes you just can't beat ogres, goblins, sprites and the oldie-but-goodies.

Given what I was told about Greta being a bounty hunter, I didn't expect this book to open the way it did. I mean, yeah, it starts with her going out to rescue a goblin boy from a monster, but then instantly Isaac shows up and he's like, "Hi" and Greta's like "Ohmygod remember how we met like a fortnight ago and I was obsessed with you but now I hate you because you lied and oh by the way now for some reason you're the king of the goblins you little liar."

Ooookay then.

Of course I have to pick at the romance in this book. Of course I do. Because I can't get through it without not. Because not only do Isaac and Greta have yet another annoying love/hate relationship that seems to be based on...uh...hormones? Let's go with hormones since I can't think of much else. I mean, after they meet for a fortnight he invades her dreams because he HAS to be bound to her. Knowing she's a human. By the way, humans are blamed for all the ills ever on Mylena. So Isaac alternates from blaming all the world's ills on her to being like I MUST HAVE YOU. Literally. His repetitions of "She's mine" or "You're mine" creeped me out.

And then of course there is the requisite love triangle. Which doesn't seem to have any point at all, honestly. But I don't like love triangles. At all. You probably know this, so I'm going to stop here.

The characters as a whole didn't have much particular depth besides Greta. Many of their actions made no sense, or seemed forced.

More About the Author

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.
