Publisher: Entangled Publishing Release Date: November 13, 2012
While trying to save her brother four years ago, Greta was thrown into the witch’s 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, seventeen-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 knows she’s the key to opening the portal. 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…
Chloe Jacobs is a native of nowhere and everywhere, having jumped around to practically every Province of Canada before finally settling in Ontario where she has now been living for a respectable number of years. Her husband and son are the two best people in the entire world, but they also make her wish she'd at least gotten a female cat. No such luck. And although the day job keeps her busy, she carves out as much time as possible to write. Bringing new characters to life and finding out what makes them tick and how badly she can make them suffer is one of her greatest pleasures, almost better than chocolate and fuzzy pink bunny slippers.
Guys, I love this cover. I really do. The covers from Entangled Publishing seem to be improving with every new book and Greta and the Goblin King is no different. The girl (who I assume to be Greta) has a dead animal around her neck, a sword in hand, and looks like she could take on anything. Look at her expression. Now back at me. Now look at her expression. Doesn't it just scream, "I'm badass and I could take on anything." or in internet terms, "Come at me bro."? Yes, I think it does.
The idea sounds really interesting. Lots of fantasy. Lots of (or at least enough) romance. Plus, she's a bounty hunter. Bounty hunters rock. Don't you remember watching those funny looking bounty hunters in the Star Wars movies and wishing you could be just like them? (No? It's just me? Fine, then.) When the romance in a story has the equation of bounty hunter + king, you know it's a must read. I can't believe it's coming out in November.
