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…
I went into this book not really having any expectations and found a well fleshed out world with a plot that kept me interested. The concept of this book is that the main character, Greta, is somehow in this alternate world from Earth where many different creatures exist. When her adoptive father is killed Greta seeks revenge on the demon who ordered the kill. Little did she know that the demon wants her for his own nefarious reasons. Isaac, the Goblin King, has the power to venture into Greta’s dreams where they interact and, even though she is a human the connection between the two is undeniable. The world-building in this book was something to be marvelled at and the characters themselves seemed individual and emotive. This book surpassed my expectations and I am looking forward to the continuation of this series.
Keep Calm and Read On,
