Today Chloe Jacobs is taking over the blog and sharing some pretty creepy places with us. She wrote this book called Greta and the Goblin King, which has a ton of things that I love in it. Fairytale retellings (including Labyrinth and Hansel and Gretal) a kick ass lead and creepy creatures. Sounds like the perfect thing to get us all in the Halloween mood, if you ask me! So, you wanna know about the book? Here are the details...
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...
And Now I'll Hand Things Over To Chloe!
So, I know this bounty hunter. She’s pretty bad ass and she’s got a habit of getting stuck in some crazy, unfortunate places.
Her name is Greta, and currently she’s cooling her heels in a twisted little world of ice and snow and monsters called Mylena.
After four years there, trekking across the hardest and most brutal terrain to be found in any world, you’d think that Greta wouldn’t be afraid of anything or any place, right?
FIVE PLACES GRETA WOULDN’T BE CAUGHT DEAD IN
5. Waverly Hills Sanitorium – Greta’s not a big believer in ghosts, but she’s seen too many things to completely discount the possibility that they exist, and apparently this place saw tens of thousands of deaths while in operation as a medical facility. Some people say that satanic rituals have taken place there. I don’t know about you, but a haunted insane asylum in any world would be on the top of my list of places to avoid.
wanted to be stuck down there with those undead zombie hive freaks. Turn and run the other way if you can!
You’d probably feel the same way.
So, what are the scariest places you can think of? Real or imagined?
And thank you!! I’m so honoured to be invited as a guest on Christianna’s blog! I LOVE it here and wish I could stay forever!
