Waiting on Wednesday: Snow White Sorrow, by Cameron Jace

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Jill at Breaking the Spine to highlight upcoming book releases we are excited about.

My pick this week:

Snow White Sorrow, by Cameron Jace

Expected publication: October 30th, 2012
Publisher: Akmal Eldin Farouk Ali Shebl
Format: Paperback, 384 pages

Goodreads description:
What if all you knew about fairy tales was wrong?

Sixteen year old Loki Blackstar is no Prince Charming. His mother is a ghost. His only friend is a red Cadillac that talks to him through the radio. He looks like an Angel but acts like jerk. No wonder he has been banned from Heaven, which is the least of his troubles. Loki needs a job to pay for school and support himself.

Still, Loki has a rare gift: He is a Dreamhunter. One of the few in the world who can hunt and kill immortal demons in their dreams so they never wake up again.

When Loki is sent to kill a sixteen-year-old vampire girl the locals call Snow White Sorrow, he is pulled into a magical but dangerous world. The locals believe the monster to be Snow White.

The real Snow White... living in the ruins of an ancient castle in a small town. She is described as horribly beautiful, terrifyingly enchanting, and wickedly lovely.

What he finds instead is a beautiful monster girl filled with rage and hurt, who has an epic untold story to tell of things such like why the Brothers Grimm altered the fairy tale, who the Evil Queen really is, where the mirror came from, and who possessed it.

Snow White has killed every person who has dared come near the castle where she once lived with the queen. Mysteriously, she lets Loki live.

I love the cover of this one! You can click it to add the book on goodreads. 
The summary sounds kinda like Anna Dressed in Blood, only that the girl is a vampire instead of a ghost. I don't know if this is a good or a bad thing. I think the book will be quite different though; Loki doesn't sound like he has that much in common with Cas the ghost hunter. I love the idea of Loki being able to kill demons in their sleep! And I'm also curious to find out how the author works the Snow White retelling and Evil Queen into this plot.
