Greta and the Goblin King - Chloe Jacobs
I loved Greta and the Goblin King. It's a modern fantasy quest and I wish there were more of them. Greta is a survivor, a fighter, but also with a vein of tenderness, of wanting to love, that makes her very appealing. And fortunately the Goblin King is lurking, setting up a relationship conflict that is as strong as the external quest conflict.

This is Narnia, grown up and letting girls kick butt.

The bleakness is balanced with hope and love, and while reading I was totally caught up in the adventure. Thoroughly recommend.
