Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This week's teaser comes from the following book:

Add to Goodreads
Title: Greta and the Goblin King
Author: Chloe Jacobs
Series: The Mylena Chronicles, book 1
Publisher: Entangled Publishing
Publication Date: November 13, 2012
Source: galley from publisher
Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble

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...

My teaser:

"I saw the way he looked at you, Greta.  It went beyond the eclipse.  He looked at you as if he would defy the law, the moons, and the Great Mother herself to--" -- p. 231 of galley

Just finished this one last night.  It wasn't anything like I expected, but it was an altogether fun read.  My stop on the blog tour is today, so be sure to check out my review.
