Waiting on Wednesday (23)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which we showcase upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.

Greta and the Goblin King (Mylena Chronicles #1)
by Chloe Jacobs
Release Date: November 13, 2012

Goodreads Synopsis:

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 I'm Waiting:

She's a bounty hunter. How cool is that?! This sounds creepily fantastic! Goblins, Ghouls and Ogres. Oh, My! Okay, that was cheesy, but you get my point. And darkly enticing Isaac? Yes, please! I really hope this isn't a case of insta-love or creepy stalker. I love me some good 'ol tension though! 

I kind of have a love/hate relationship with this cover. The girl looks pretty legit (though that's a weird face she's making) but the guys got the whole awkward "I'm trying to look broody but failing miserably" stance going on there. And you can tell he's totally photoshopped onto that mountain :P But still pretty psyched! 

So what are y'all waiting on this fine Wednesday? 
Be sure to let me know in the comments below!

All the best
