Title: Greta and the Lost Army (Book #3)
Author: Chloe Jacobs
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Publication Date: February 1st, 2016
Genre: YA, Fantasy
After spending the last four years trapped in a place of monsters, demons, and magick, the last thing the fierce teenage bounty hunter Greta expected was to ever be back on Earth. But a rare opportunity gives her and the Goblin King Isaac the opportunity to do just that. Now she’s home. With a boy in tow. And her parents have lots of questions.
Although Greta finally has her heart’s deepest wish—to see her family again—every step she takes to reconnect with them drives her further away from Isaac. Greta and Isaac planned for her to return to Mylena and become his queen, but she’s not sure if she can go back to that harsh world, though staying on Earth means giving up the boy she loves.
But a powerful enemy refuses to let Greta escape. A demon who will stop at nothing to destroy her and everything she loves. Even if it means following her to Earth and forcing her to face a fate as unavoidable as love itself.
The streetlamps cast soft cones of light on the sidewalks all the way through the neighborhood. Greta pointed things out as she remembered them. “That’s where my friend Danielle used to live. I guess she probably still lives there.”
“Are you looking forward to seeing her again?”
She nodded. “And if I remember correctly, she’s more hyper than a Mylean berserker—only less ripping and tearing, and more frenzied hugging and constant talking.”
The rumble of his amused chuckle made her grin. He squeezed her hand. She looked up at him, and it hit her. “You know, this is kind of like a date,” she said, tingles of awareness dancing up her spine.
His smile was crooked, and his eyes warm as he laid his arm across her shoulders, making her feel like he would rather be here with her right now than anywhere else. It probably wasn’t true. They were both too worried about Mylena for it to ever leave their minds completely, but maybe one day it would be true.
“What would be the purpose of a date?” There was such a thing as courtship in Mylena, but she and Isaac had pretty much bypassed anything resembling normal…in both worlds.
What if she was wrong and the portal didn’t open again? What if they stayed here? There could be more nights just like this, and eventually maybe they would get a place of their own and… “You know, so a couple can get to know one another and decide if they like each other.”
“But we already know we like each other.” When they were alone like this and his voice softened because he trusted her enough to let down his guard, it did crazy things to her. Like popping candy hitting her bloodstream. “Even more important, we know that we fit together. In battle together, or planning for Mylena’s future, even while arguing…and definitely when I kiss you…nobody fits me like you do.”

Genre: YA, Fantasy, Romance
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.
An Interview with the Characters of Greta and the Glass Kingdom
Hi friends! Today I was asked to bring Greta, Isaac, Siona, and Wyatt with me for this visit. That’s a little harder than you might think, especially when it means having to deal with one stubborn human, one arrogant goblin king, one incommunicative bounty hunter, and another wise-ass human.
But I got them here, so let’s get this done with. I don’t know how long I can stay in control of this circus.
Greta: *snort* It won’t be a circus until the moons are full, author lady.
Isaac: *turns to Greta with a raised brow* Are you suggesting that the curse Mylena suffers from is akin to a group of freaks whose purpose is to amuse you?
Greta: *grins* You mean it’s not?
Wyatt: Uh, should you be so cheeky with him?
Siona: *huff* You obviously haven’t spent much time with the two of them.
Wyatt: *glares* Thank goodness for small favors.
Chloe (ie. Me, the author): *worried already* Ahem. Why don’t we focus on the interview questions I’ve been asked to ask you all, okay?
Isaac: *crossing arms* I am not here for the entertainment of the masses.
Wyatt: Sure you are, big guy. Just like the rest of us. Why else did you think you were here?
Isaac: *knowing grin*
Greta: He was bribed. That’s why he’s here.
Wyatt: Bribed with what? *shaking head* Nevermind, I don’t really want to know, do I?
Chloe: Please, let’s get back on topic. The blog host is going to kick us all out before I’ve even asked the first of her questions!
Siona: *throws warning glance at the others* Danem author, we will behave. What is the question you wish to ask? Chloe: *looks down at crumpled sheet of paper* Whose fault was it that Greta and the Glass Kingdom took SO long to be released after the first book? *squirms* Uh, maybe we should skip that one…
Greta: *laughs* Are you getting some flack, author lady?
Isaac: I will take responsibility for this.
Greta: Nope. It’s my fault.
Siona: It’s MY fault.
Chloe: Oh stop, all of you. Of course, it’s my own fault.
Siona: But you had trouble because we weren’t…cooperating.
Greta: *jaw set* I’m not sorry about that. I never wanted this story to be told in the first place.
Wyatt: That’s because it’s a story about you, and you hate being the center of attention.
Greta: What I hate is people getting in the way of my work. How am I supposed to do my job with--
Chloe: *exasperation* How about we just move onto the next question? Book 1 was about Greta’s romance with the goblin king, and their efforts to defeat the demon, Agramon. Can you tell us a little bit about Book 2? *pause* Maybe I should just answer this?
Wyatt: You think just because you wrote it, you know it best? We lived it. I think we’re just as qualified.
Chloe: Oh sure. Go ahead. Who wants to field this one?
Chloe: Oh, come on. *turns to Wyatt* You just said--
Wyatt: I said we were qualified, not that we wanted to do it. *sigh* Okay, I guess the second book is more about the Wyatt character. He’s got to rescue Greta and save everyone from--
Isaac: *chuckle* The second book is about the goblin king. It explores his moral journey to do right by his people, and make Mylena a better place for all to--
Siona: Excuse me, but if weren’t for Siona, there wouldn’t be a second book. It’s because of her challenges, her divided loyalties, her sacrifices that--
Greta: Oh for goodness sake, they don’t call it Greta and the Glass Kindom for NO reason. Book 2 is about Greta’s battle with her…uh…inner demons, and her various failures.
Chloe: *patting Greta’s hand* Don’t be so hard on yourself.
Isaac: *Fierce scowl* She hasn’t had much choice. As the author, that’s your fault, is it not? You are the one who tore her from the human world as a child. *Leans forward, fist clenched on table* You are the one who forced her to learn to kill, who almost got her killed by a demon, who almost lost her to a portal of darkness, who subjected her to an environment of hate. And that wasn’t enough. You continue the torture in your second book, and now I hear that there will also be a third. *growls* I should--
Greta: Damn it, Isaac. You can’t kill the author. She’s only doing her job.
Isaac: You’re too soft-hearted. I can do exactly what I like. Am I not the goblin king?
Greta: Hey! I take exception to that. I am not soft-hearted. I’m a freaking kickass bounty hunter.
Wyatt: You are kind of soft-hearted.
Greta: I’ve got a sword and I know how to use it!
Chloe: *claps hands nervously* That went well, didn’t it? *cough* Is it time to go home yet?
Thank you for inviting us. My apologies if it wasn’t what you expected. Unfortunately, these characters have a way of taking control. Something I ought to know very well by now.
