Overview

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 quest ions.
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.

A satisfying ending to my favorite series. Waited a year for each book but it's finally over! Can't wait to see what Chloe Jacobs writes next.

I loved the first two books in this series. They're full of gorgeous world-building, incredible story-telling, and characters that I never want to leave behind. I was a little nervous going in to this book, because is it even possible to top all of that? Yes. The answer is a resounding yes. Chloe Jacobs managed to write a conclusion to this epic story that is everything I hoped it would be, and more! This book is split between Earth and Mylena. We get to meet Greta's family and see how they've been dealing with her disappearance, and now we get to see how they deal with her return. It was nice to see a different side of Greta - the side where she isn't a hunter, afraid for her life just because she's a human in a world where humans are hated, and where she has no real responsibilities other than going to high school. It's not the Greta we've come to know and love, but it is a Greta that existed once and might have existed if she hadn't been swept away to Mylena. Of course, things wouldn't seem right if everything stayed nice and easy! Mylena is under attack from the demon who started everything in the first place, and Isaac and Siona are desperate to return to save their people. I really enjoyed the wordplay with the title once we get back to Mylena - the "Lost Army" definitely has more than one meaning, and I loved how significant Greta's part was in reuniting the goblin army. Even though she's only a human and has no magick anymore, she's still just as important and powerful as any of the natives. And we can't forget Isaac, because he just keeps getting better and better. I'm so, so sad that we don't get to see any more of him, because he's such a great character. He's kind and loving, but he knows when to be firm and how to rule a kingdom. He's willing to sacrifice so much for Greta and his people, but they're also willing to give everything for him. Isaac is the perfect complement to Greta - he makes her stronger and supports her when she needs it most. He also knows how to calm her down and let her make her own decisions. I could really go on and on about how incredible this series, and this book in particular are, but you should really just read them for yourself! Especially if you're looking for a romantic YA fantasy. This was a perfect series ending, and the last line... I don't think anything else would have been so perfect! I am very much looking forward to seeing what Chloe Jacobs writes next, and it will be on my TBR as soon as I see it! 5/5 for sure.

Fans of the Labyrinth should totally check out this series! I loved it! 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?" GRETA AND THE LOST ARMY by Chloe Jacobs is the awesome conclusion to the author's Mylena Chronicles, an epic New Adult (NA) urban fantasy trilogy. It is set in parallel universes - Earth's and Mylena's. I was originally drawn to this series because I'm a fan of David Bowie's portrayal of the goblin king in Labyrinth. I'm sad because this book marks the end of this series, but happy to report that it totally rocks! The ending was pure perfection! It left me laughing, swooning, and wiping away a few happy tears. Be forewarned that this series should be read in order to be fully enjoyed. This installment grabbed me from the very beginning. The included prologue was wonderful as it catapulted me back into the world of Mylena quickly refreshing my memory as to what had previously occurred. This installment picked up right where the second book had left us with Greta about to knock on the door of her childhood home after having been missing for years. I found the first half's pacing to be a bit slow, but it was integral to the story and it more than compensated emotionally as Greta and her family experienced a heartfelt reunion. If you crave danger and excitement, the story's second half was explosive with non-stop, fast-paced, thrilling action that kept me biting my nails with bated breath for what was coming next. Following please find a few of my favorite quotes: "I am the goblin king," he said with a shrug. "Tell your people this and demand that they help us find the portal back to Mylena." Wyatt started to laugh like a frickin' hyena, which made Greta groan again. --- "We're three people against a crazed faerie queen merged with a demon who controls an army of gnomes. What could happen?" --- "If everything was easy, we'd never know for sure when we've achieved greatness." If you are a fan of David Bowie's performance in The Labyrinth, this series should be a must-read. You will love it! The storyline is imaginative, the characters are inspiring and the characters' individual struggles are dramatic and breathtaking. The fantasy world of Mylena is imaginatively incredible as the author paints each scene with a life-like touch. In addition to our swoon-worthy goblin king hero and our fiery spitfire human heroine, there are goblins, witches, demons, gnomes, sprites, fairies, and more! If you haven't delved into this series yet, and you enjoy wonderfully entertaining epic fantasies featuring young, tough, uplifting, adventurous heroes, you totally should pick it up. Your timing for starting the series is perfect now that the whole series is available and there are no cliffhanger ending worries. My full review will be published at Reading Between The Wines Book Club. Please check it out there! 4 1/2 Wine Glasses!!!!

What a conclusion! Series conclusions always make me nervous, because there is just so much you want to happen, but Greta and the Lost Army delivered in every single way. I have loved this series and I’m so sad that I have to say goodbye but I say goodbye in the most content way possible. This was a solid conclusion and I devoured it. The moment I started reading I did not stop until I was done. Greta is such a fantastic heroine and I love that this is her story. She is the main driver and the one who saves the day. She is willing to go to extreme lengths and she never thinks of giving up. I love how much she has grown over the course of the series and I loved watching her come to realize how strong she really is. Of course I adore Isaac. I think it’s safe to say I’m one of his biggest fan girls and my oh my did he deliver. I mean, I’ve always love him but he outdid himself in this one and I was super happy with how much Isaac we got in this book. I think my favorite thing about Isaac… aside from his swoon… is how he complements Greta. He knows she is strong and can take care of herself and while he is protective he never tries to hold her back. He helps her and they work as a team and most importantly he believes in her and knows she has to potential to do great things. That is so important. I also love our secondary characters. I really warmed up to Wyatt and Siona is so fierce! Of course the villain is creepy and I hate him, which is exactly how it should be. The world building is another thing I love. Mylena feels so real and I can visualize it so well! And the way Chloe blended our world with Mylena in this one was fantastic. It was a great balance between the two. Then we have the plot, which had my stomach in knots. For the last ten percent I really thought I was going to be sick I was so damn nervous. I was freaking out! And I need to have a special shout out for the prologue and the last line of the book. The prologue was everything! And the last line was the PERFECT way to close out the series. Greta and the Lost Army was a fantastic conclusion and I am so sad that I have to say goodbye to Greta and Isaac. This is a series that fantasy fans need to add to their TBR. You will not be disappointed.

If you like sci-fi, long odds, sweet romance, magic and fighting then this book is for you! This is not a standalone, but it is the first I read of the series and I was sucked in immediately. The writing style is enticing and CJ uses her vocabulary like a true artist. While this was the third book in the chronicles, it provides enough information to understand the world, the situation, the different alliances, and obstacles. Some of the scenes were emotionally wrenching, some were hilarious and some were nail-biting (talk about some huge shows of trust!!) Parts of the story were a bit predictable, but not in a bad way, just in a yes that is what we thought should and would happen. I hope there is another book or spin off because I want to know what happens to Wyatt, Siona, and Dryden...especially Dryden! I found this book to be captivating and I read it in one sitting. I could not wait to see what happened and how this odd pairing of friends/loves would or would not work out. Lastly, this cover is just beautiful. Through the cover I got a sense of what Mylena must look like/be like. Wouldn't it be cool if we learned more about Dryden and got a cover of what Mylena now looks like? fingers crossed! *CJ has a cool link on her Goodreads page that takes you to a website that presents information and graphics about all three books in the Mylena Chronicles* I received this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Greta and the Lost Army, What an incredible climax to the Mylena Chronicles! After battling to survive in Mylena, Greta, the boys and the Goblin King Isaac are all transported back into the human earth realm. To say it’s an adjustment is an understatement, Greta in an attempt to reunite the stolen children with their parents returns to her parents and the life she left behind. Acclimating back into the life she dreamed of returning to is much harder than Greta ever imagined. Now Greta must decide her life path. Return to Mylena, the battle with the demon and be with the one she loves or stay with her family, safety and the life of her dreams. I’ve followed this series from the beginning and have been with Greta every step of the way. Greta’s character is about to make more leaps and bounds and boy, am I glad I’ve been along for the ride. Chloe Jacobs has created a dark and desperate world in need of a savior and masterfully grouped together unexpected heroes and heroines to rally in that roll. I flat out loved it. It entertained, I became emotionally connected and most of all I didn’t want it to end.

I have to admit that this book, which is the third in the series, is probably best received after you have read the first two books in this series. I have not read the other two and I am sad that I haven't. I had to catch up to what was going on in the series. I fell in love with Greta and the other characters really quickly and found that the story kept my attention quiet well. Greta, Isaac and Siona go back to visit Greta's home all while knowing that eventually they are going to have to return to the Mylena world to defeat Agramon. With this in the back of her mind, Greta is just trying to enjoy being back home and seeing her family that she thought she would never see again. Greta has to learn how to adapt to the human world again after being away for four years, but eventually she does. Once she adapts, Greta has huge doubts about returning to Mylena to deal with what she is supposed to deal with, Agramon. After much back and forth, Greta decides that she has to do what is expected of her. Greta's character was such a strong heroine. I loved that about her. This was a very good read, but I think I could have enjoyed it a little more having read the previous books in the series first. The ending was so great and I know that I would have felt even stronger about it had I read the whole series. There was just enough romance in this story to keep you going. Nothing over the top and I liked that for a YA novel!
