I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review
First things first, Greta and the Glass Kingdom is book #2 in the Mylena Chronicles and continues where book #1 ended. While I think Ms. Jacobs did a good job summarizing book #1 enough to prevent complete confusion, I still think you should read book #1, Greta and the Goblin King, first. I am going to try to keep this review as free of spoilers from book #1 as I can, but read at your own peril.
I liked Greta quite a bit more in this story than I did in the first. She has come to terms with being in Mylena and seems much more accepting of her fate. Romantic interest Isaac also grew a bit in this book, and I loved the romance between the two. I also enjoyed the myriad of secondary characters that drew me deeper into the story.
Again, my favorite aspect was the intriguing fantasy world created by Ms. Jacobs. She has a way of drawing the reader into the fantasy with vivid descriptions and amazing creatures. I really appreciated the fast pace. There was more suspense than I expected which made the book difficult to put down. I also enjoyed the plot twists-- there's nothing better than a few surprises.
Greta and the Glass Kingdom is a fun fantasy, featuring romance and suspense, all set in an amazing fantasy world. If you like YA fantasy, then I think you'll really enjoy this series!
