Waiting on Wednesday: Greta and the Goblin King

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme held by Jill at Breaking the Spine to feature upcoming books that we can't wait to get our hands on. 

Title: Greta and the Goblin King
Author: Chloe Jacobs
Publisher: Entangled Publishing
Date of Release: November 13, 2012 

Goodreads Description: While trying to save her brother from the witch three years ago, Greta was thrown into the fire herself, falling through a portal to a dangerous world where humans are the enemy, and every ogre, goblin, and ghoul has a dark side that comes out with the full moon. To survive, 17-year-old 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 determination to escape. But Greta’s not the only one looking to get out of Mylena. The full moon is mere days away, and an ancient evil being knows she’s the key to opening the portal. If Greta fails, she and the boys she finds stranded in the woods will die. If she succeeds, no world will be safe from what follows her back ...

Why am I waiting? First off, the author is a Canadian which I think is reason enough to read it :) Other reasons though include: a) there are ogres, goblins and ghouls, b) the Goblin King sounds hot - I'm shallow, I know! - and c) rather than humans doing the hunting, it seems like we are the hunted. I just hope Greta acts like a bounty hunter and doesn't disappoint me like Celaena from Throne of Glass.

  1. Excellent, I always love it when I find something completely new to read in a WoW post and this is the first I've heard of this one. Who knew a Goblin King could be hot? I guess it doesn't mean he is necessarily a goblin himself though, haha.

  5. The goblin king does sound hot Z- that's enough to make me want to read this one too! Plus he's a goblin king. I can't say I've read too many books that feature a goblin king and I want to meet Isaac immediately!
