A fate as unavoidable as love itself...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.
“Greta and the Lost Army” by Chloe Jacobs was the best one yet! This was a great conclusion to the series. Greta as always is a fantastic heroine. She has had an amazing story since the beginning of the book. Greta goes to every length she can no matter how extreme the circumstances for those that she loves. Greta doesn’t give up and I love that about her. This whole series and been about Greta growing and becoming stronger.
Jacobs is an amazing world builder. I think she has done a great job with these novels and the world building. Mylena comes to life for the reader. Jacobs makes this world so easy for the reader to visualize. She does a great job of creating two worlds that fit together.
The first part of this story is about Greta trying to adapt to the human world again. She has lived away from the human world for four years and now she has to go back to human life. She gives her parents a half-truth story that way they won’t check her into a psychology center. Greta struggles on whether she wants to go back to Mylena or if she wants to stay in her human world.
These characters are great. I already mentioned how much I adore Greta. Isaac has become this guy that we all love. I think Jacobs did a great job with Isaac. She has created a wonderful book boyfriend. This is my favorite line:
Isaac stopped her at the bottom of the stairs with a crooked smile. “I would wish you sweet dreams, but how can they be memorable if I won’t be in them?”
Who couldn’t love Isaac?
Of course these characters that we love end up going back to Mylena in order to deal with Agramon. That is where there is a great battle. I don’t think anyone will be disappointed with this series. It moves like crazy. The story is fast pace and easy to get lost in. This was an amazing conclusion to this trilogy.
